About the Contest


We’re searching for a better sandwich!

What does it mean to make a good sandwich better? The third annual America’s Better Sandwich Contest aims to find out.

We think the best part of a sandwich is our bread. But the goodness you put between the bread makes a big difference.

For the third year in a row, we’re asking America to tell us what makes a sandwich better. It could be home-roasted turkey breast for a classic club, a perfectly poached egg on a breakfast sammie, or a quick and easy take on nut butter with jelly on a Sandwich Thins® roll.

The five sandwich categories we’ll be judging are:

Creative Classics
Nutritious spins on sandwich creations that have stood the test of time, such as grandma’s club sandwich, BLT or other old-time favorites.

Fueling Good
These sandwiches should incorporate ingredients that help boost your energy such as healthful fats, protein, fiber and iron.

Open-Faced Artistry
We’re searching for a better sandwich!

Sandwiches are works of art for the world to see, and these snacks and meals should announce their nutritious ingredients—like bright beets or tasty tuna—sans second slice.

Breakfast in Bread
These sandwiches, featuring nutrient rich breakfast favorites like eggs and yogurt, invoke images of cozy mornings in bed or boisterous brunches with friends.

State Favorites  New for 2016!
Whether it’s a well-known sandwich in the state you reside, or a must-have local dish that can transition into a sandwich, celebrate your state pride by re-creating these state favorites with better-for-you ingredients.
