  1. I just wanted to say, the Sandwich bros. Angus Cheeseburgers rock~ I had a coupon from Kroger’s for them and as an afterthought bought a box to try. I thought they looked to small to be anything but an appetizer. Boy, i was wrong! They are more filling than you might think. I loved the flavor & taste. You can easily fix one and tuck your favorite toppings, like lettuce, tomato, onion, & pickle down into the pocket, then add any condiments you like. Delicious!
