Well of course. That's only logical. A sandwich is made with TWO slices of bread!

I marvel at the little tubs of hummus or cream cheese that say 8 servings in container. I examine the container and wonder how on Earth anyone could get 8 servings out of that lol.

Or fold over the top and use a bag clip. Course the the factory engineering of the contents of the bag may have made thought process like this impossible. Cant eat just one.... and before you know it, boom, BLISS POINT. LOL

How many licks does it take to get to center of a tootsie pop? Same method on how many licks to consume a little tub of cream cheese. Its 8 licks!

Low lives.

You know back in the day you made a sandwich with two slices bread.... THEN cut it diagonally with a knife. One triangle sandwich intended for one person. So one slice bread for one person. And there you have it. Blame the Big Macadamia Whooper sandwiches for exaggerating bread expectations with your bucket of fried chicken.

No one uses bread for anything but a sandwich?

I didn't say otherwise. I had one slice bread, toasted, with my eggs this morning. I have ONE slice of bread at a meal, far more often than I have TWO.



The OP is somehow confusing serving sizes on labels with how much one *should* eat. That's not the case.

What folks are *supposed* to do is use the nutritional values to fit that food into a healthy diet. But most folks don't have a clue.

My mom used to make "fold-over" sandwiches. One slice of bread folded over some sort of filling, which was usually tuna/chicken salad or peanut butter. Served with a bowl of soup or a glass of milk and a few cut up raw veggies on the side, that would be lunch when we were kids. Still is if I'm home for a visit at lunchtime or if I make a quick sandwich to eat while on the run out of the door. It's plenty to eat most of the time.

Back in what day?

My mother had a sandwich assembly line going on at the kitchen table every morning in the 1960s. We never got only half a sandwich to take to school.

Sandwich, a dessert (cookies, cake) and an apple. Always an apple. And we were all skinny.

And the sandwich was your main course as per your description. If you had a real main course, would you need two sandwiches?
