Do you know where the sandwich comes from? Historians believe that the 4th Earl of Sandwich was an avid gambler, and really didn’t like to leave the betting table for anything or anyone. So, instead of stopping to have his lunch when he was in the middle of a game, he asked his servants to bring him some meat between two slices of bread. This became known as the sandwich.
Since 1762, when the Earl of Sandwich invented the sandwich, over 11 billion sandwiches are bought and made every year. The majority of these are in the home.
