Today is the birthday of Earl of Sandwich which means that today is National Sandwich Day!
It’s odd to think that the sandwich is something that needed inventing, but we’re very thankful for the English nobleman who had the genius idea to put bread, meat and cheese into a compact, portable and delicious package. We don’t even want to imagine what the world would look like today if the sandwich had not been invented. It would probably be a horrible place with tables too cluttered with sandwich ingredients because no one knew how to combine them efficiently.
Thankfully, someone did invent the sandwich and mankind has been improving on it ever since. Although the sandwich may have been invented in England, we Americans may be the best sandwich innovators in the world. No matter where you are in this country, you’re not too far from a delicious, mouth-watering sandwich. To celebrate this day, we’ve found 51 of the country’s best sandwiches, one from each state and Washington D.C. If you haven’t done so already, go out and stuff your face today.
