Despite the recent trend of big food manufacturers axing artificial coloring from their products in response to consumer demand, we apparently still have a strong affinity for unnaturally colored edibles. Case in point: People went so crazy for Brooklyn's rainbow bagels that the shop had to temporarily shut down to regroup.
Yes, culinary entrepreneurs have clearly realized that one sure-fire way to make a food go viral is to tie-dye it in an assortment of bright colors — and the latest foodstuff to get the psychedelic treatment is the grilled cheese, as Cosmopolitan observes.
Say cheeeseeeeeee 有幾款味道芝士揀 例如榴蓮同香蕉lol 我就揀左 開心首選 (King size $42) 包含左紅色既芝心蕃尋味(蕃茄) 藍色既薰衣草芝戀(薰衣草味) 同綠色既綠葉之選(羅勒香草味) 好多色素haha 多士烘得香脆 蕃茄同薰衣草味都唔係好嚐到 basil 味就較突出 而分別用上4款芝士Mozzarella, cheddar, emmental 同 gruyere 既黃色芝味無窮 芝士味頗香 但有點oily同膩 整體唔係出眾 只可惜 愛情裡有啲關係 就好似芝士拉絲一樣 藕斷絲連 欲斷難斷 折磨你於無形中... 評分: 5.8/10 KALA Toast 卡洛芝士吐司專門店 荃灣荃興徑昌泰大廈shop 4-6
To sample this alarmingly colorful sandwich, you'll have to make your way to Hong Kong's Kala Toast, where it can be yours for a mere 42 HKD (around $5 USD). According to Instagrammer @hkfoodiexblogger, who has dubbed this creation "unicorn grilled cheese," each different-colored cheese has its own flavor: blue is lavender, green is basil, red is tomato, and yellow is plain old cheese (a combo of mozzarella, cheddar, Emmental, and gruyere). As for the taste? "I would say the quality was rather average but we all cannot deny that it is photogenic," she writes. Indeed.
Another practically guaranteed way to propel a snack to social media stardom: wrap it in gold leaf, obviously.
