Fish and chips, bangers and mash, sandwiches and crisps. Certain foods are just made to be paired. When it comes to choosing what to eat with sandwiches, crisps are a traditional choice – and many shops know it, offering special offers on sandwiches and crisps bought together in the form of meal deals.
But unlike the first two examples given, there are plenty of additional flavour and texture combinations that contribute to a delightful, or disappointing, sandwich and crisp pairing. So, when you’re getting lunch on the go and contemplating a meal deal combo from your local forecourt or supermarket, how do you make a successful choice from the vast array of combinations on offer?
If the internet is anything to go by, the choice is more important than you may think. You might have heard of the Facebook group ‘Rate my meal deal’, where meal deal diners post a picture of their choice to either be celebrated, or humiliated by the response from passionate followers. It seems that people can tell a lot about you by your ability to choose lunch wisely!
We don’t want to leave you hungry while you ponder this highly important choice, so here are a few select tips for how to pair crisp flavours, and varieties, with sandwiches.
