Invented the Sandwich?
Montague, 4th Earl of Sandwich (1718-1792) is supposed to
have invented the sandwich as a quick meal so as not to
interrupt his gambling sessions. However some form of a
sandwich was probably eating before this time when more
humans ate with their hands rather than using utensils. In
facts there is some references in history where soldiers
would wrap stew or food in a bun or piece of meat.
sandwich is still the most popular sandwich in the United
States, and in second place is the BLT (bacon, lettuce and
tomato). It is estimated that Americans eat 300 million
sandwiches each day - that's more than one for every man,
woman and child in the nation!
