A Burrito is Not a Sandwhich...Duh!

Did you ever think that maybe a burrito could be considered a sandwhich? I know I never ever though about that, since the two are nothing alike whatsoever. Do you put rice in beans in you sandwhich? Or turkey and ham in your burrito? I do not kno what you think, but that would be disgusting; which is why it amazed me that in Worcester, Mass. Panera bread company bakery and cafe chain tried to argue that a burrito is a sandwhich, but the judge stated no it is not. Where this issue evolved from is beyond me.

In the court Panera Bread Company argued a burrito is a sandwhich by the tortilla is the bread; and any food porduct with a bread and a filling is a sandwhich. However, the court judge went against their argument and claimed that a sandwhich has two slices of bread while a burrito only has one tortilla, so it is not a sandwhich. Then Culinary chefs and historians argued it is an insult to the cooking world to call a burrito a sandwhich, the idea would be "absurd".

This entire issue is just halarious and makes me laugh that the Panera Bread Company actually brought this issue to the court. Too bad for Panera Bread they lost the case.

So then what is a falafel? And a souvlaki?

Interesting issue... but please, take more care with your spelling!
