Brits vote for the best national sandwich filling

Talk about a game with two halves. This delicious sandwich, inspired by the football tournament, would be a strong contender for the DROOLS Rimet award.

The giant sarnie includes ingredients from all the groups of the football competition, such as French camembert or Ecuadorian pork.

The Brits were asked for their opinion on the best national sandwich fillings from all eight groups. This was before the competition started and teams started getting knocked off. The 8-inch tall winner emerged.

It also features steaks from Argentina and maple bacon from Canada, who are now out the tournament, and, to represent England, a dollop Coronation chicken.

Group G saw Brazilian bauru, a melted cheese and tomato that is a popular sandwich filling in Brazil, top the list ahead of Swiss cheese, and zaltibor (a Serbian delicacy).

The eight ingredients were stuffed between four thick slices tigerbread, which was voted the nation’s best container for the gargantuan treat.

The sandwich was created by Warburtons, whose chairman, Jonathan Warburton, said: “The ultimate football sandwich is certainly drool-worthy.

“It ticks all the boxes to make for a great match watching occasion and we’re excited to recreate the barm at home to accompany our sofa side support of the footy.”

Food brings people together

It comes after research of 2,000 adults revealed that 28 percent of them are self-confessed sandwich snobs, usually eating four per week.

Nearly a fifth (19%) eat a sandwich every lunchtime. They prefer tiger bread to keep it all together.

The study also revealed that 76% of respondents enjoy eating food from different parts of the world.

But 50 per cent describe their usual food preferences as ‘traditional’, compared to only 14 per cent who’d use the term ‘eclectic’.

According to OnePoll data, 51% are passionate about expanding their horizons in the world of food.

And in the last year, of those who have tried a new cuisine, on average they’ll have tucked into three different types.

Jonathan Warburton added: “We encourage every opportunity to bring friends and family together through a shared love of food and community.

“This year we hope to bring some extra joy sandwiched between the matches.”
