Our family loves Sloppy Joes. It is a great meal for a cold winter day, like we are having here in Ky. According to many food historians the Sloppy Joe dates back to 1930. It was invented by a cook named Joe in a Sioux City, Iowa café., as a loose meat sandwich. By the 1940s it was mentioned in cookbooks and food columns in newspapers. By 1969 the Manwich Sauce came into production by ConAgra and Hunts. It is used by many, including myself in making a sloppy Joe sandwich. I find it tasty and has a zing to it. As the slogan goes "A sandwich is a sandwich but a Manwich is a meal".
