The Greatest Thing since the Sandwich!

Happy National Sandwich Month! Sandwiches are such a great staple because they can be customized. Have you ever met a person that doesn’t like a good sandwich, let alone one that can be tailored to their exact taste? According to history, the sandwich dates back to the 1st century B.C. Today, sandwiches have become a staple in the American diet, with endless combinations to choose from! 

Understandably, sandwiches didn’t become popular until bakeries started selling pre-sliced bread, making it a convenient, portable and inexpensive lunch for school children and workers alike. Just think, all these years we’ve been saying “the greatest thing since sliced bread,” but maybe we’re just glad sandwiches are that much more convenient.

To celebrate National Sandwich Month, try adding the juicy sweetness of a mango to your next sandwich. For a flavorful blend of mango and barbeque, try this Pulled Pork Sandwich with Mango Barbecue Sauce. Adding mango to the sauce enhances both the richness and tanginess; you may never go back to regular barbecue sauce again!

While we’re on our history lesson kick, we might as well bring up our 1930’s inspired Malted Mango Milkshake. Who says you need a diner or malt shop around the corner to enjoy this American classic? This throwback treat is a unique dessert that you often won’t find on menus. An even better way to enjoy it – hearing first-hand stories from when these milkshakes were originally popular! Grab a friend, relative or neighbor and enjoy this sweet mango treat together!
