Both the Super Sandwich and the Manager's Special made their debut in 1992. Between October 19 and November 6, 1992, there was a special event called "Everything is Super!" also known as "Super-Supermarket Sweep". In that special event, David said that the show's staff had decided to add more money to the game and wanted some bigger products for the Big Sweep, so they decided to stock the shelves with super-sized versions of different products throughout the store and that's how the $200 Super Sandwich bonus made its debut.
Before the Sweep began, David specified that players could make a sandwich to help add an extra $200 to their final sweep total. Runners were required to make the sandwich precisely as described using ingredients set up on three tables; including five meats, two cheeses, lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mayonnaise, and mustard; then wrap it in aluminum foil and seal it in a bag with a twist tie. To earn the bonus, the contestant had to use all the ingredients, and the sandwich had to be in their cart or otherwise at the checkout counter before the bell.
- A later version required that the shoppers run to the International Bread Center to grab the bread called "Sandwich Loaves", and then the partners would make the sandwich.
- This version is also used even if the Shopping List and Super Sandwich are available in the Big Sweep in the same episode in 1992, 1994-95 & 2000.
- This version is also used even if the Magazine Display and Super Sandwich are available in the Big Sweep in the same episode in 2001-2003.
