Chain store vegan sandwiches
My friend Susan visited London a while ago and one thing about the UK really amused her. She couldn’t quite understand the obsession with ready to consume sandwiches.
Susan has a point.
I’ve never seen a country quite like the UK when it comes to pre-made, boxed up sandwiches. You get them at the petrol station, inside pharmacies, as part of meal deals, in high end shops, in budget outlets, in coffee chains, and pretty much any other type of retail space you can imagine.
Some stores selling these sandwiches will have an entire wall of chillers dedicated to dozens and dozens of various flavours.
I’d love to know how this sandwich saturation happened in the UK. If anyone knows the history of why packed sandwiches are an integral part of life here in the UK, I’d love to know.
Sharing Susan’s bewilderment and amusement was really just a cute lead in for sharing these photos.
Check out three vegan ready-to-go vegan sandwiches I’ve spotted around the UK over the past week.
