True, banh mi are seeing a surge in popularity across the country and breakfast sandwiches remain hangover favorites year-round, but when it comes to the prestigious title of America's most officially beloved sandwich, it turns out we all prefer something a little closer to our childhoods. And, no, we're not talking about peanut butter and jelly.

According to its latest study, Datassential, a food marketing and research firm, found that the classic grilled cheese is still our go-to national treasure when we need a little something to make our hearts melt. Fifty-one percent of respondents ranked the gooey carb fest as their number one choice in comparison to all the other types of sandwiches that have graced our school and office lunch bags over the years.

So go, grab a loaf of Wonder Bread and a pack of that processed cheese you haven't had since grade school and get griddling.
