The Ultimate Sandwich Chart Is Here, and It's Glorious

Pop Chart Lab

Variety isn't just the spice of life, it's also the spice of sandwiches -- and while the humble grilled cheese is beautiful in its simplicity, a man cannot subsist off melted Kraft singles and buttered bread alone. But unless you've spent time behind the counter at a Jimmy John's, how are you supposed to know what goes into all the different varieties of sandwiches in existence?

Fortunately, the folks at Pop Chart Lab worked up the Charted Sandwich Board: a slick poster that visually portrays the construction of almost 90 different sammies from all over the world, like the Chicken Parm, the Cuban, the Banh Mi, and the Muffuletta. They've even included vegetarian filling options, and no-brainers like Ham & Cheese and Bologna are also given their own spot on the chart; hot dogs, hamburgers, and other foods that are only technically sandwiches, were omitted.

It's a thing of beauty -- check out the entire board below, or hit up the high-res version and buy one for yourself over on Pop Chart Lab.
