My husband LOVES sandwiches!  Any kind of sandwich!  Turkey, ham, roast beef, egg salad, tuna, and on and on.  I make them all the time for him and he raves!

My best sandwich making tip is to put the tomatoes and lettuce and other “sliding” veggies on the bottom so they stick to the mayo better!  It really helps keep it all together!

Whether it’s for breakfast, lunch or dinner, there’s no denying it:  America is a sandwich-loving nation!

ABOUT THE SURVEY: The Hellmann’s® Sandwich Survey was conducted by Kelton Research between March 21st and March 28th, 2011 using an email invitation and an online survey of 1,373 Americans ages 18 and older, with oversampling in specific geographic regions and women with children under 18 living in the household.  Results of any sample are subject to sampling variation. The magnitude of the variation is measurable and is affected by the number of interviews and the level of the percentages expressing the results.  In this particular study, the chances are 95 in 100 that a survey result does not vary, plus or minus, by more than 2.6 percentage points from the result that would be obtained if interviews had been conducted with All persons in the universe represented by the sample.
