The new $99.99 “Family-sized Pym-ini Sandwich” just premiered at the Pym Test Kitchen at Disney California Adventure — ranking it as one of the most expensive sandwiches in the world — and people are confused why it costs so much.
Mom, chef, author and actress My Nyugen (@myhealthydish) was given an exclusive first look at the pricey new sandwich — and TikTokers are rather taken aback.
Located on the Avengers Campus in Anaheim, Calif., the Pym Test Kitchen — which opened June 4, 2021 — is described as a dining experience where guests can “refuel with Ant-Man and The Wasp’s size-defying fare at this epic eatery at Avengers Campus.”
Here, guests can order the $99.99 “Family-sized Pym-ini Sandwich,” which was originally named the “Quantum-sized Pym-ini.”
The menu specifies that the sandwich serves six to eight guests — which comes out to around $12.50 to $16.50 per person.
Taking into account the other sandwiches featured on the Pym Test Kitchen’s menu — the cheapest being $12.99 and the most expensive being $15.49 — the “Family-sized Pym-ini Sandwich” seems comparably priced.
Many TikTokers feel the ingredients don’t justify a $100 price tag
According to the menu, the “Family-sized Pym-ini Sandwich” features “Salami, Rosemary Ham, Provolone, and Sun-Dried Tomato Spread on Toasted Focaccia with Marinara dipping sauce, Potato Bites, and Arugula Salad.”
“It doesn’t look that great, sorry. Salami and ham for $100?” one user commented.
“I’m missing the ingredients that justify $100…” another user wrote.
“Needs some gold to make it more expensive for no reason,” commented another user.
“There needs to be saffron, caviar, or black truffle on it,” commented another.
But some TikTokers didn’t see a problem with the $100 price tag.
“Considering how expensive theme park food is, if the sandwich can serve 5 people, it’s a pretty normal price,” one user commented.
“I have a family of five, and we usually pay more when we go out to eat, so $100 is not bad. It looks like I can feed my entire family and have leftovers,” another user wrote.
As one of the most expensive sandwiches in the world — the most expensive being the “Quintessential Grilled Cheese,” which sells for $214 at Serendipity 3 in NYC — the “Family-sized Pym-ini Sandwich” is definitely making waves with Disney fans and foodies alike!
