Phil & Mel In The Afternoon

Weekdays 8:30AM-10:00AM; 3:00PM-7:00PM

I have yet to join TikTok but this guy may be the reason I join. There’s a guy that is making a ton of weird sandwich recipes from the 1900’s and they are wild! And apparently, despite the odd ingredients, somewhat tasty.

Barry of @sandwichesofhistory is a guy who is not scared to try different things.  His TikTok videos and Instagram videos are dedicated to the making of some very weird sandwiches. Just a few; a Cream of Mushroom Soup sandwich, a Crunchy Peanut Butter and Blue Cheese sandwich, and an English Walnut sandwich. I’ve never heard of any of these but Barry not only makes them, but seems to enjoy them.

He’s making sandwiches from cookbooks from 1902, 1909, 1941, and more, so there are lots of odd recipes to try. Phil & I have been doing our “Nosh or Nasty” food videos for a while but there are times when run out of stuff to try. I think I just hit the jackpot!

Watching Barry try all the sandwiches is interesting, and obviously I’m not the only one that thinks so. His videos have millions of views. He has a calming “dad” presence and his videos are pretty quick. So far today (and I just discovered the videos) I’ve watched seven. LOL!

Enjoy! And if you’re still at work, just know you’re gonna get nothing done for the rest of the day!
