Dear BLT,

Alas, the American lunch sandwich.

Mmm... my salivary glands have been activated.

Well, according to a 2008 poll, you, (BLT) are the most popular sandwich among the blokes in the United Kingdom!

While students across the world have been making advances in math and science, look at what Americans have been doing!

Hmmm... we need more bacon.

BLT, you have a more interesting history than I thought. You are typically more popular during the summer months when consumers can enjoy your savory flavorings on a quaint picnic or a hot summer day.  You didn’t really hit it big until after WWII.  With grocery markets popping up refrigeration and preservative technologies being invented.  I mean, what more can you say? You are a great snack for anytime of the day, nutritious, and tasty!

LOL sandwich model.

A BLT might be too terrestrial for the exuberant and mysterious Count of Monte Cristo, but I’m sure you can handle one.

See!  This guy is sure enjoying a BLT.

If anyone is aware of a lost soul who has never experienced the flavor of a BLT sandwich, that lost soul needs to be taken to a kitchen and he /she must eat a sandwich made by putting bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise between two slices of bread.

A kind soul made me my first BLT this year, so I suggest to the world that BLT’s should be consumed at least once.

Truly yours,

Chris.
