Have A Nibble Of My 5"...

Sun Jan 29, 2006 10:24 pm

...sandwich. It's fabulously delicious and filling: 5 slices of smoked ham; two crisp and fresh lettuce leaves; two thick slices of fresh tomato; four slices of cucumber; and four slices of temptingly tasty cheddar cheese (each slice is about 1 cm thick). I worked out that that sandwich cost under 50p for me to make. Very good. Sure, the sandwiches you can nowadays buy are getting cheaper, but the filling is normally stupidly thin. You need a proper mouthful - and the taste is just fantastic.

May I suggest you go to some sort of clinic?

But back to the topic, M&S BLT Sandwiches are huge!! And it would cost companies more than 50p to make a 5" sandwich.

Mmmmmm.

Although I'd rather have Sunday lunch today. Which I'll be having in about half an hour's time - yum!

Home-made sandwiches are definitely better than Boots' "finest" (although our SU shop in Nottingham did some pretty tasty and good-value rolls).

Methinks if James can do it for 50p, M&S' suppliers could do it for maybe 10p for the raw materials...

Are they? How much do you pay?

Actually, I reckon it'd cost them less to make it, considering the huge buying power they'd have re. ingredients and packaging (I suspect a sandwich pack thing would cost 0.5-1p per one), and their ability to make huge amounts quickly, even when considering the employee costs.

That must be the worst processed meat ever and the tomatoes are not even real ones. I'd rather pay 2 quid and get a proper one.

What? All from Tesco. And the meat is delicious. You forget that you'd probably get 4-5 slices from a good-sized tomato; probably 30 slices from a good-sized cucumber; 30 sizes of ham from the packet (it's a big packet); lots of big lettuce leaves from a lettuce; etc. So, divide by how much you use...  Smile I actually think it's closer to 40-45p.

Ok, granted with the veggies. And I know Tesco ham and I think it is rather delicious although I definitely don't want to know what's in there.
