After battling the Persians with the aid of their pal, Geeter, Erbert & Gerbert spent some time in ancient Greece hanging out with the Spartans. Though the boys finally decided to return to modern times rather than enter into Spartan military training, they now honor their Spartan pals with a new sandwich: The Spartan. They’ve even adorned the sandwich with Silver Spring® Peppadew Mustard Sauce, a curiously fantastic condiment featuring the newly discovered South African sweet and spicy peppadew fruit.
During a trip back to ancient Greece, Halleys Comet dropped Erbert & Gerbert off for a visit to Delphi. There they met Apollo, one of the twelve Olympian Deities. “What’s up?” asked Erbert, disarming the oracular god with his boyish curiosity.
“Well, I have just slain the Python, a dragon who lived here to protect the navel of the Earth,” Apollo explained.
“I would have been chicken to fight a giant dragon serpent-creature...thing,” said Gerbert, timidly. “How did you beat him?”
Apollo chuckled and answered, “As the god of archery, I relied upon the sting of my arrow to wound the beast. But I’m pretty sure I finished him with a good swift kick.”
“Sweet, with a kick?!” exclaimed Erbert, in awe.
Seeing that Apollo was clearly hungry from his battle, the boys scrambled to assemble a sandwich worthy of their new friend. After thinking for a few moments, Erbert and Gerbert looked at each other, smiled and said in unison, “Sweet. With a kick.” And the Apollo sandwich was born.
