Whatever your taste buds prefer be it the classic sandwich, fast food, subs, bagel sandwiches or wraps, no one can deny the convenience of a sandwich. Take it from the Earl of Sandwich himself.

A Little Bit O’ Sandwich History

While he wasn’t the first to come up with it, John Montagu, the British statesman, brought the idea of the sandwich over from the Eastern Mediterranean in the eighteenth century after seeing grilled pita breads, small canapés and sandwiches there. The Englishman asked a cook to prepare some food for him during a 24-hour gambling streak so he could continue to play uninterrupted by supper. The sandwich was the perfect pair; he did not need utensils and could hold it in one hand.
