National Sandwich Day

Nov 03, 2014

It's not just a cheesy (pun intended!) excuse for a holiday or a chance for Subway or Quiznos to make more dough (ha ha!). National Sandwich Day is an opportunity for us to celebrate the ultimate and original convenience food - the almighty sandwich.

November 3rd is the anniversary of John Montagu's birthday, an 18th-century English noble better known as the Fourth Earl of Sandwich. As the story goes, Montagu was a hard-core gambler who didn't want to leave the game table to eat his meals. So, he told his servants to prepare his lunch meat between two pieces of bread. That, supposedly, is how we came to celebrate National Sandwich Day.

Everyone loves sandwiches, and most of us eat them daily, mainly for lunch. According to the National Restaurant Association hamburgers are the second most popular lunch choice by full-time workers, after fruit. In fact, 75% of restaurants that serve sandwiches offer hamburgers on their menus, and the beefy patty in a bun is the most popular carry-out item in America (take that, fruit!).

So why do people love sandwiches so much? Well, they're convenient, easy to eat, compact and so good you can eat two! The best part, though, is that you can make your sandwich as healthy or unhealthy as you want it to be. So skip the sprouts, pile on the pickles or go easy on the mayo - when it comes to sandwiches, it's up to you.
