To make their discovery, the researchers rounded up a culturally diverse range of subjects and gave them a survey on sandwich satisfaction. The participants were also given four actual peanut butter and jelly sandwiches: one whole uncut sandwich, as well as three others, sliced vertically, horizontally, and diagonally.

When you see the sandwich cut in half , you see two and your brain sees more to eat. Poll: Do you think sandwiches taste better when cut in half ?

After designing a way to rate the “taste to enjoyment” ratio (the “TE”, as they call it), the researchers charged their sandwich-eating participants with rating each sandwich experience on a scale of 1 to 20 in areas such as flavor, heartiness, presentation and overall enjoyment. In every single category, people vastly preferred all three cut sandwiches to the uncut sandwich, but the diagonally-sliced sandwich was the standout winner against its competitors.

So, why do people actually prefer diagonally-cut sandwiches? The most likely answer, according to a “rectangle vs. triangle sandwich debate” on NPR’s All Things Considered, is that the triangular shape allows for maximum exposure to flavors due to the increased surface area of its more flavorful ingredients. By this metric, the ideal sandwich silhouette would in fact be a minimum of two diagonal cuts that form four smaller triangles, thus exposing even more surface area and eliminating any full bites of corner crust, which skimp on flavor and moisture.

Why do sandwiches taste better cut in half ? If you could change one thing about your life what would it be? Do you wash your hands EVERY time you go to the toilet? What game is this ?

“What you really want is a higher number of acute triangles that still maintain their structural integrity,” says Philip Dituri, PhD, Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education at Fordham University. “If you are primarily concerned with optimizing your exposure to all of the flavors and each ingredient in every bite, you should throw the sandwich in a blender and drink it. Not so appealing sounding, but you’d get an even distribution of food and flavor. Of course that’s not the whole picture.”

He adds that every time you take a bite, you’re creating new surface area and exposing more of the ingredients, so from a surface area perspective, your initial cut is only a starting point. The rest of the widespread preference for diagonals and triangles can likely be explained by aesthetic preference and the convenience of holding and biting into the sandwich without making a mess.
