It’s Time To Talk About Sammitches
If you asked people 30 years ago what sandwich they ate most . . . 99% would've said peanut butter and jelly. But now, between paranoia over peanut allergies and our laziness to do ANY food preparation, PB-and-J is DYING. Although there will always be a place for peanut butter in my house (when I was a kid, my mom would make me peanut butter and bacon bits sammiches).
Just me? Okay, fine.
Don't judge me.
AND YES, sometimes it is called a Sammitch. Anyway, new survey asked thousands of people what sandwiches they'd eaten in the past two weeks, then figured out the most popular sandwiches in the U.S.
Coming in at number one was . . . TURKEY. 14% of people have eaten a turkey sandwich in the past two weeks. Peanut butter-and-jelly finished FIFTH, with only 5%. The nine most popular sandwiches are: Turkey . . . ham . . . chicken . . . other kinds of subs . . . PB-and-J . . . BLTs . . . grilled cheese . . . roast beef . . . and club sandwiches.
The survey also found we're most likely to eat Philly cheesesteaks at restaurants . . . only 9% of people make them at home. And we're most likely to make our own peanut butter-and-jelly . . . 0% of people surveyed ate one at a restaurant.
This blog post is making me hungry. ANYWAY. It also makes me curious. What's your favorite sammitch? Do you do anything special to make it extra tasty?
