Admit it — there's nothing more delicious than digging into some gooey grilled cheese. The childhood delicacy is a staple quick-meal for families, with its modern roots stemming from the early 1920s, when American cheese and sliced bread became inexpensive, essential grocery store items. 

However, grilled cheese isn't just for kids; the internet has plenty of grilled cheese options for adults who want to take their boring office lunch to the next level. 

Whether it's on it's own, with just cheese, bread and a little butter, or if it's melted into a savory mix with other treats, people should have the right to enjoy their game-changing grilled cheeses at whatever age they please.
