First they tell me a tomato is a fruit and not a vegetable, then they tell me Pluto is no longer a planet and now THIS??? What is the world coming to? :googly:

What about a wrapper? Is that a sandwitch? I had a ham, bacon, cheese wrapper and I ate it like a sandwitch. If not, what the hell is it?

Ah ahahaha!

More provoking thoughts:

While a wrap and a burrito both use tortillas, are they still different? Could it be that a wrap is more of a regular sandwich with a tortilla instead of two slices of bread (same fillings)? A burrito uses different fillings all together, and a combo of things you would never put on two slices of bread. - well most people wouldn't... ;)

If you think that is bad, think of it this way. Eventhough they say a burrito isn't a sandwitch, to someone who is Hispanic, may view the burrito as a sandwitch. A burrito may not be a sandwitch in American culture, but in other cultures where sandwitches are not used, it maybe considered a sandwitch.

That being said, does that mean that a Gyro isn't a sandwitch either?

Well, Gyros is served in a pita, which is a type of bread... therefore it's a:

Sandwich!!!

As for the burrito, is it actually Mexican or is it an American adaption?

IMAO. Now Grapegrl has me confused. Sandwitches and Hamburgers.. OH God! They have veggie burgers and I have rolled up lunch meat and put it into a hamburger bun. Does that mean the sandwitch I made was really a mexican hamburger. Oh crap, I don't know. LOL.

I thought the burrito was Mexican. Plus don't they make the tortilla with flour like they do bread?

I honestly don't know! LOL :googly:

And I don't know if a burrito is Mexican in original or an American derivative!

Yes, tortillas are made with flour... and corn... but is it a bread? What makes bread, bread. Surely not just yeast - look at corn bread, zucchini bread, etc.

:confused:

OK - here's one - what about the stromboli? Same thing - yeast dough with ham, cheese, and/or pepperoni slices but it's baked. You never see that as a sandwich item - it is always listed under pizza items. Why can't that be listed under hot sandwiches (grilled cheese sandwich, hot ham & cheese sandwich)?

Would a calzone fall under the same classification as a stromboli?

I think a calzone has sauce in it where a stromboli has meat and cheese. That would classify a calzone to be a pizza product. Right?

I've always thought of a calzone as a wrapped pizza... the dough is the same as pizza crust. :)
