Did you know that August marks National Sandwich Month and National Panini Month? People in the United States eat an estimated 300 million sandwiches every day — that averages to about one a day for every American. Nearly 60% of adults pack a sandwich for lunch at least once a week, and nearly 70% of parents pack a sandwich for a child’s lunch at least once a week.
Sandwiches are classic, versatile and outrageously delicious. Lucky for us, August is National Sandwich Month and National Panini Month, and we are excited to celebrate! It’s said that people in the U.S. eat an estimated 300 million sandwiches every day. That’s one for every single American! It’s a heck of a lot of sandwiches, but Americans are onto something here, since nothing can compare to taking a big bite out of your favorite sandwich.
With back-to-school time just around the corner, all we can think about is the quintessential lunch item, SANDWICHES! From a child sinking their teeth into a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, to deli fanatics craving a pastrami on rye and an all-American classic cheesesteak loved by all in Philadelphia, we can’t think of anyone who can resist one of the most popular foods worldwide. Not only are sandwiches completely customizable, but they come in countless variations and have been around for centuries.
