Kids Taste Test 100 Years Of Classic Sandwiches

Now we're getting hungry.

While many kids may be familiar with peanut butter and jelly or turkey and cheese combinations on their sandwiches, there are other popular sandwiches throughout history that could end up in their lunchboxes.

In a video for Bon Appétit magazine, kids prepare and taste-test popularized sandwiches from 100 years of history, including a 1900s peanut butter and jelly with orange marmalade, and a Vietnamese Bánh mi sandwich from the '40s, featuring cheese, pork belly, cilantro, cucumber, daikon, and more. 

With each bite, the kids react to the taste on camera, providing some hilarious, honest commentary people of all ages can enjoy.

We found it particularly adorable when one boy bit into a Philly Cheesesteak, popularized in the '30s, and questioned those sweet, caramelized onions. 

"There's caramel on them?" he asks someone behind the camera. 


And while watching the video is an excellent source of entertainment, it also teaches viewers new foods they can introduce into a children's diet while educating them on how people lived and ate throughout time.
