World's Most Expensive Bacon Sandwich

The Bacon Bling sandwich, dubbed by the World Record Academy as the worlds most expensive bacon sandwich, clocks in at $237 (£150). This porky behemoth can be found at the Tangberry coffee house in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire and contains an impressive list of ingredients that will undoubtedly tickle the fancy of bacon connoisseurs around the world.

Some of the ingredients included on this list are 7 rashers of rare breed pig bacon, sliced truffles, saffron, a free range egg, and of course, edible gold dust. After all, what good is a bacon sandwich without some edible gold.

Currently Guinness World Records does not consider this monster of a sandwich to be considered a record setter, but owner Paul Philips is hoping to change this by establishing a new category devoted to the worlds most expensive commercially available bacon butty. (That’s UK speak for sandwich.) While bellies are being filled and wallets are being emptied, know that the $237 you drop will be donated to charity, which is the reason behind the sandwich initiation, not gluttony. Surprise!



  • I can’t believe no one has commented on how stupid this is. I’d rather live in a world where people wouldn’t pay to eat gold–

    • I’d rather live in a world where people wouldn’t criticize what other people decide to experience and spend their money on.

  • I wonder if this comes with a free heart transplant…
