A surprise entry -- and a refreshing one at that -- captured Downtown Blackstone’s Sandwich Sampler competition in the Town Square last Tuesday night (May 8th). Corner Kitchen owner and chef Sam Allen was crowned Sandwich King after his Strawberry Ice Cream sandwich was voted the crowd favorite, edging Blackstone Herb Cottage’s Turkey/Apple/Cheddar Panini by four votes, 30-26. The Brew House’s “Mega Meatloaf Stack” finished third, and USA Pizza & Wings’ Italian Sub finished fourth among the 85 votes cast.
