Grilled Cheese Adds Gooey Deliciousness to THON

Since Grillers (RIP) left us in 2013, there has been a noticeable void in the State College Grilled Cheese scene. While there are still other options, like some of my personal favorites Five Guys and Panera Bread, there’s something about a cheap grilled cheese that just can’t be replaced so easily.

Enter THON. Across from Portal 2, the members of the Finance Committee have set up what is arguably all the food you will need this THON weekend. For just three dollars, you can get your very own grilled cheese, with the option of tomato soup for another three dollars.

The grilled cheeses, made simply by putting cheese on bread and throwing it through a panini press, may not be the most complicated, but what they lack in sophistication they make up for in taste. While the sandwiches look flat and small, after the first bite, pockets of cheese flow out, making it impossible not to savor every bite and wish you had bought two.

But the best part? They’re a fantastic snack/meal at any time of the day. If you ask me, there is no wrong time for grilled cheese, and I should know, having just eaten one at 4:30 a.m. The only downside to this glory is that the sandwiches are a THON-only food, so they unfortunately are unable to drown your pain during Penn State basketball games.
