In 1762, the noble Earl of Sandwich the 4th (John Montagu), had a continued craving for meat between bread. He first ordered it while playing poker – he wanted to eat roast beef, but didn’t want to put down his cards or dirty his hands. Thus, the sandwich was born. Today, sandwiches are so popular that they have their own national day. According to a survey by YouGov, here are North America’s top three most popular sandwiches.
