There's something infinitely satisfying about a hot grilled cheese sandwich.

The rainbow food trend has been around for a few years already, with foods like pizzas, bagels, smoothies and smoothie bowls taking on multiple colours. So what's different about Happy Cheese Toast's rainbow grilled cheese sandwiches? Well for one, their sandwiches have an extremely beautiful colour gradation which includes all the hues from VIBGYOR. The rainbow cheese toast has thousands of takers everytime Happy Cheese Toast makes an appearance ast festivals, night markets and events around Thailand. They claim to have the 'first cheese in Thailand'. However, the rainbow grilled cheese sandwich is now being sold by cafes all around the world, given their popularity on Instagram.
But how is the sandwich made? The simple answer would be food colouring. The bright colours that pop out from the melty cheese are achieved by mixing several different types of cheese like mozzarella, gruyére and swiss cheese, etc. which are then separated into seven different tins and then given a different colour. The different coloured cheese are then placed between soft and fluffy bread pieces and grilled with butter. Happy Cheese Toast has another variant of the rainbow cheese toast, where the multi-coloured cheese is stuffed between charcoal bread slices.
So how does it taste? Well, we all know that you can hardly ever go wrong with cheese. But people seem all too taken by the pretty colours of the cheese to bother about the taste.
