Who doesn’t love a good sandwich? So many possibilities! Millions of sandwiches are consumed each year in the U.S. They’re so convenient, my family and I eat them a lot in the summertime; packing them for road trips, trips to the beach and pool, and more. I like to buy a small variety of cold cuts and cheeses, but I also enjoy using tuna, grilled chicken, and bacon for sandwiches. And, of course, I love an occasional PB&J!

Why type of sandwich do you enjoy the most? Let me know in the comments!
