strawberry and cream sandwich verdictLast week I blogged about Tesco’s new sandwich, which celebrates the finest British summertime ingredients just in time for Wimbledon.

I saw one of the bizarre Strawberries and Clotted Cream Sandwich creations in Tesco’s today, so thought it would be a good fun to have a tasting session with some of the Bath-Knight team.

The Verdict– It went down well with some, and was even compared to a Victoria sponge cake which is pretty impressive. However, my comparison would be that of a jam sandwich, which was a little soggy!

Overall we were cut down the middle- The sandwich was enjoyable for a couple of the tasters and just OK for others. Generally we thinks it’s a quirky was to get people taking about Wimbledon and our favourite summertime strawberries of course.

Tesco’s Strawberries & Clotted Cream celebratory sandwich has got everyone at Bath-Knight talking about weird and wonderful (depending on your taste) sandwich choices.

We’ve drawn up a list of what we think are some of the most bizarre…

  • Another one of Tesco’s limited edition specials saw ‘Italian lasagne’ sandwiches hit the selves. Love lasagne but on a sandwich it seems a little odd and very carb heavy.
  • After spending some time living in the States I came across some bizarre choices sandwich wise, including peanut butter and lettuce. Not one I’ve tried myself but I guess it’s healthier than peanut butter and jelly.
  • After scanning the internet it seems that cheese and jam is an odd favourite amongst some with chocolate spread and cheese not far behind.
  •  Another one from America is marshmallow spread sandwiches– perfect if you’ve got a sweet tooth not so perfect for a healthy lunch.
  •  Finally, the strangest sandwich has to be Candwich– a sandwich in a can! With a sell by date that lasts a year the sandwich can be purchased from vending machines. If you are brave enough to try one, fillings include peanut butter and jelly, BBQ chicken and pepperoni pizza.

Got any bizarre favourites? Let us know.

Tesco Strawberry & Clotted Cream sandwiches to celebrate Wimbledon

I had to laugh this morning when I read that Tesco have launched a strawberries and clotted cream sandwich.

The bizarre sandwich was supposedly invented to celebrate the quintessential British summertime; it’s even packed in a Union Jack designed packet. I’m sure Tesco are hoping Wimbledon spectators will be stopping off to buy one just before entering Centre Court, but I’m not convinced.

I adore strawberries and cream, however, I’m not sure that making the classic summertime snack into a sandwiching filling is the most appropriate way to celebrate Wimbledon or British summer.

So the big question is will you be including Tesco’s latest sandwich into your lunchtime menu? We all seem to think not, but I would love to hear your thoughts.

And another thing… What is your favourite ‘bizarre’ sandwich choice? Leave a comment to let me know.
