World Sandwich Day


Yes, there is a World Sandwich Day, and yes, we were celebrating it that afternoon! Fun fact, did you know that the humble sandwich here is actually so beloved in some cities of the world and is considered a top cultural food? Take the Cubanos (Cuban sandwich) for Miami or the Chivito for Uruguay; the latter enjoys an exalted status as the country’s national dish.

There’s even a day that’s dedicated to sandwiches, namely the National Sandwich Day, which honours the day believed to be when sandwiches were invented.

DKSH Business Unit Consumer Goods, the leading Market Expansion Services provider for Fast Moving Consumer Goods in Asia, has partnered with Skippy Peanut Butter and DIY Bites Studio on the World Sandwich Day to celebrate the birth of this much beloved food item. It’s apt then that we had a Sandwich Making Competition between the very talented Chef Leah Choy and Chef Jie Low.

I love peanut butter. Have that with fruit jam and bananas and bacon in a sandwich, so so so good - the Elvis Presley sandwich!
