Happy National Grilled Cheese Day! As if you didn’t have any other excuse to dive into one of our Grilled Cheese Pretzels!

While you get your fix, here are some fun facts the Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

  • According to Punchbowl, the Ancient Romans were the first civilization to make a cooked bread and cheese sandwich.
  • The grilled cheese you are used to seeing came about in the 1920’s when inexpensive cheese and affordable bread were hot commodities.
  • Wikipedia explains that these tasty sandwiches were originally made as an open-face sandwich. It was not until the 1960’s that the top piece of bread was added to the sandwich.
  • The United States government cookbooks describe Navy cooks as broiling American cheese filling sandwiches during World War II.

We hope you have a cheesy day!
