“What? You don’t think that’s a sweet-flavored sandwich? It’s got fruit in it, for God’s sake. Yes, cranberry counts as a fruit, I don’t give a shit if it’s tart!”
~Inter-Office Debate Among AFFotD Staffers
For the past few weeks, we’ve been shouting at you about various sandwiches that originated in America, using a list of arbitrary rules that, frankly, we’ve ignored more often than not in deciding what sandwiches warrant inclusion in our Sandwiches of America series. We’re now in the homestretch, where we talk about what we’ve deemed to be the oddest sandwiches in America. Admittedly, most entries in the open faced sandwich article, and some regional entries, definitely qualify as “odd” but we needed to limit this article’s length so we just kind of played fast and loose with our definitions of regional sandwiches and just general oddities. Deal with it, this is already published, and there’s nothing you can do to fix it.
For the rest of you who don’t particularly care about what sandwich shows up in which article, we’ll delve into our second to last article, where we tell you about strange sandwiches that we’ve decided to arbitrarily place in the “sweet” category.
