... to the Marks and Spencer sandwich, which is 30 today

if you can stomach it.

I always used to get mine from Boots - a triple chicken pack, plus crisps plus drink (usually Coke) for 2.99 - enough calories and fat in that to last a whole day!

I used to enjoy the "Triple Pack" on a regular basis when I had a proper job.. I think it was Prawn & Mayo, Cheese & Chive and the best one, Egg & Bacon! lovely.. I'm very tempted to pick up a pack of sarnies when I'm out without the missus but I do try to resist..

But nowhere near enough salt in Boots' sandwiches for me. Sad

There's a large factory here in Milton Keynes where many of the retail sandwiches are made under contract to the high street brands.

My wife worked there many years ago for a few days on a temporary accounts admin contract and from that day to this she has never bought or consumed a sandwich she suspects of being made there.
