DKSH spreads fun with Skippy on the World Sandwich Day @DIY Bites Studio, Setia City Mall

November 06, 2019

Do you know what is so special about 3rd November 2019? Is world Sandwich Day! I always love making my own sandwich as I can add more ingredients to my sandwich. Sandwiches are simple in the sense that the only rule you truly have to follow to make a sandwich is that you need to put something in between two slices of bread. But great sandwiches constitute more than just an ordinary PB&J (peanut butter and jelly). Great sandwiches balance protein, dairy, vegetables, sauces and bread into a perfect food item. Do you agree with me?

On this meaningful day, DKSH Business Unit Consumer Goods, the leading Market Expansion Services provider for Fast Moving Consumer Goods in Asia, has partnered with SKIPPY® PEANUT BUTTER and DIY Bites Studio on the World Sandwich Day to celebrate the birth of this much-beloved food item. The event took place at Setia City Mall in attendance of nine-year-old culinary prodigy Chef Leah Choy and Chef Jie Low.

The event started with the opening speech by May Ang, Manager from SKIPPY® PEANUT BUTTER whereby May shares some fun facts about World Sandwich Day. At the same time, both chefs were having a friendly match as each of them will be given a certain time to create their own sandwiches.

At the same time, we get to hand- on doing our own sandwich version using rice crackers by incorporating the delicious and smooth taste of Skippy peanut butter. The  inspirational recipes specially created by the culinary experts at Skippy and DIY Bites Studio. Start from mixing the rice crackers with chocolate, whipping the cream, freezing it, squeeze on Skippy peanut butter and add on some decoration. Finally, my own sandwich version is ready.

I love the pouch packaging of the Skippy Peanut butter and you just squeeze on your sandwich. Due to lightweight packaging, I don't mind bring with me during travel as I can enjoy Skippy peanut butter anytime.
