RECAP: Arnold Sandwich Thins Event

RECAP: Arnold Sandwich Thins Event

So, for those of you who don't know, I've recently partnered with Arnold Bread for their relaunch of their Sandwich Thin rolls. I grew up eating Arnold Bread Sandwich Thins rolls and specifically remember my mom always making my lunches with them. And of course….as I got older, I started using them all the time when making my own. So needless to say, I was excited to hear that the thin is back and better than ever — made with olive oil and sea salt. This time around, there are four stars of the Sandwich Thins roll show: Whole Wheat, Multigrain, Flax & Fiber, and Honey Wheat. And of course, they taste nutritious and delicious. 

I like to use Sandwich Thins because for me, the perfect sandwich is all about balance. There are so many rolls and bread slices out there that are just too much. Do you know what I mean?! For lack of a better word, some bread is just too “bread-y” — too filling, too big, too overpowering. A sandwich is a work of art, not just the roll it sits on. So this is why I love Arnold Bread Sandwich Thins. They have just as much taste, without taking up too much space. They are also light and guilt-free, which makes my shameless late night snacking completely un-shameful. 

You get it. I love the Sandwich Thins. So I threw them a party — a picnic party!


We made our three signature Sandwich Thins roll recipes (which you can find at the end of this post), but also had a ton of other fun picnic themed bites to nosh on. And I even did a sandwich demo where I made my incredible BBQ pulled pork, pimento cheese, and pickle sandwich on a Whole Wheat Arnold Sandwich Thins roll.


Not to brag, but we also gave out the coolest swag bags where everyone went home with these awesome denim jackets….


And I got to catch up with a ton of other foodie blogger friends. What better way to bond than over our beloved carbohydrates, am I right?


And last but certainly not least, we had a "Flour Wall" ... get it? Like a flower wall... made out of bread AKA flour... AKA we’re geniuses….


I absolutely loved being a part of this event and overall partnership with Arnold Bread because I truly love their products and overall brand. (I was going to say the child version of myself was screaming when I landed this partnership, but Arnold Bread has been a part of more of my life than just school lunches, so this was really a life fulfillment.) So on that note, don't forget to #DoYourOwnThin! And I know you’re hungry now after all of this #breadtalk, so I’ve put my recipes below.
