    You can put anything in them, you can eat them anywhere. And because you can eat it one-handed, it's the ultimate multitasking meal. Yes, today we are talking about the Sandwich. It's clearly a pretty obvious thing to stick a bit of filling between two slices of something along the lines of bread and eat it with your hands. It's been done for thousands of years, whether it's with flatbread or yeasted loaves, cheese or meat, especially by those eating away from a table. For instance, working on the fields or as a casual snack. Stuff Tales is Production of WYN Studio. Hosted by Kunal Mandal. Produced by Bijay Gautam. Editing and Mixing was done by Shrey Oberoi.
