Did you know that sandwiches were invented somewhat by accident when the fourth Earl of Sandwich was too entrenched in his 24 hour card game marathon to get up to eat? The story goes that a servant brought him some bread and some meat which he folded up together into what is now known and loved the world over simply as the sandwich. Thank you, Earl of Sandwich, for your dedication to gambling and your desire to stay nourished.
August is National Sandwich Month and we’re not letting bread have all the glory. If you know Otis, you know we have a thing for ice cream sandwiches. We’re throwing out three cheers for sandwiches in honor of one our favorite meals (dessert edition):
