From Old World Christmas. Stemming back all the way to the Great Depression, a simple sandwich of gooey melted cheese and toasted bread became an economical and favorite staple, now called the grilled cheese sandwich. To this day it is still ingrained in many cultures and a staple in many homes. The grilled Cheese Sandwich is now so 'hip' that this humble cheese sandwich, even has gourmet restaurants devoted to perfecting it! Who knew that the countless numbers of grilled cheese sandwiches were served to American soldiers as they fought in World War II, would lead to this popularity. There probably isn't a person alive that doesn't like to eat, that wouldn't love a grilled cheese sandwich ornament to hang on their tree! Pair with the Tomato Soup Can and you have a fun kitschy present that the recipient of this gift will remember each time they hang it on their tree!
