Brian DiNuzzo, Assistant Brand Manager, Arnold®, Brownberry® and Oroweat® Bread"This year, the 'America's Better Sandwich™' Contest received more submissions than ever before, and our fans especially enjoyed our new 'State Favorites' category that called for creative, nutritious twists on the classic state foods they grew up with," said Brian DiNuzzo, Assistant Brand Manager at Arnold®, Brownberry® and Oroweat® Bread, according to a press release. "There are numerous creative recipes featuring our whole grain-packaged bread, and the Top 15 finalists represent the best three of each category.
