£2.20 – Sliced turkey breast, mayonnaise, pork sausage, cranberry sauce, sage and onion stuffing and cooked diced bacon in malted brown bread.
After yesterday’s M&S selection round-up, some loyal readers accused me of running out of ideas and turning into an old hack. Well hack on this, jerk offs! My Tesco had some Christmas sandwiches in stock today. Why didn’t they have any Christmas sandwiches or any evidence of stocking Christmas sandwiches the other day? I guess this is another one of those questions that man is not supposed to answer.
So I have to admit, I’m disappointed that Tesco have also called their sandwich Turkey & Trimmings. I thought the Co-op was a shoe-in for the Best Name Award. Once again, there are no original ideas.
It’s a bit grey and this is reflected in the pretty simple taste. In fact it feels like quite a lazy effort from Tesco. It’s not a terrible sandwich, but it really does feel like they’ve done the bare minimum. And some people are happy with that, coasting through life with no real aspirations or goals, accepting life as it comes to them. And you know what? I imagine they are some of the happiest people on the planet. You can push yourself, try to reach the top and create a legacy that will be remembered, but all you get is a novelty sandwich blog that you end up putting far too much effort into.
