Take a Bite of Anaheim’s Best Sandwiches
In the Disney animated film Frozen, Princess Anna and love interest Prince Hans sing of their quickly-progressing romance in the song “Love is an Open Door.” One piece of evidence to prove their love: they finish each other’s...sandwiches.
If you’ve seen the movie, you know that Prince Hans turns out to be a jerk. He’s using Anna to advance his royal standing. I will argue the proof was there all along. Keep away from my sandwich, Prince Hans.
Whether you’re willing to share with your one true love (I’m not), these sandwiches are fit for royalty. Grab a seat and take a bite of Anaheim’s Best Sandwiches.
