Strangewich might sound like an odd word, but it means exactly what it sounds like it does. It’s a strange sandwich. We all have one of them in our lives – that one weird flavor combo that we put between two pieces of bread. And while we never really stop to think about our unique tastes, Hellmann’s does. That’s why they’re honoring the strangewich with help from Dale Earnhardt Jr. and the #StrangewichChallenge. This challenge is all about embracing the weird we sometimes put between our bread slices, and I was able to be a part of the event kick off that was held recently in Daytona Beach.
Strangewich Challenge Kickoff in Daytona Beach, FL
A couple of weeks ago, I had the honor and opportunity of attending the kickoff of the 2017 Strangewich Challenge in the Daytona Beach Walmart with Dale Jr. (Yasss!) It was a day filled with fun activities such as Carnival Type of game, the show Car on site (Hellmann’s 88 Car) a pit stop demonstration, race car simulators, and, of course, a mini Strangewich Challenge. The weather was really hot, which was odd for this time of year, even in Florida, but it was nice to be warm for a change!

The event started with Dale Jr. and crew showing all of us what it’s like to be right there in the pit. It was exciting – and really loud! After that, we watched four teams come up with their best and weirdest sandwiches in a mini #StrangewichChallenge. While there were some interesting creations there, the one that I thought was most intriguing was a sandwich using donuts as the bread. You might think that’s a little TOO weird, but I say donuts are always winners!
We even got to see Dale Jr.’s newest Strangewich creation, a turkey and Doritos sandwich with Hellman’s Mayo on white bread. I came home to tell my husband about this, and he said, “He stole my sandwich!” It’s true. LOL The hubby has been putting chips on sandwiches for years.
Have you ever watched someone “create” a sandwich so crazy you actually thought to yourself, “There is no way they can actually eat that”? Then, they take a big bite and you almost cannot stomach it. This was the thought process behind the Salt & Vinegar Ham-Peroni. Check out mine!

I took my daughter’s favorite foods and stacked them between two pieces of bread. It was a great experience to create something new and strange like this!
What is the craziest food you have made and tried lately?
We had a great time! Watching it all from up close how his pit crew were in action was an incredible awe moment indeed for me!
