Is it wrong to expect a modicum of taste from an egg and cress supermarket sandwich purchased for exactly £1? Is that wrong? Probably; at very least naive.
This was a bland, bland sandwich, so bland in fact that you’d rather it just tasted extremely saline, or of methane gas. At least that’s SOMETHING. I just want SOMETHING, damnit, UK supermarket pre-packed sandwich industry!
I will caveat this by admitting that my experience of Morrisons pre-packed sandwiches is insignificant compared with the vast wealth of similar Tesco fare consumed over my lifetime. Thus, I’m not yet prepared to cast the same across-the-board aspersions as I did against Tesco on a very similar theme.
At this early stage in the life of Average Food Blog I also do not wish to be seen as screaming a one-man campaign against the chain itself to an indifferent public. A man from Yorkshire can’t just let Wm Morrison Supermarkets plc go that easily, but I need a show of intent soon – just throw in some pepper or summat, that’ll do.
I remain an optimist at heart, and I hope that a pop at, say, a ham and mustard option, perhaps in the next week to ten days, will bring extensive joy and lift the sense of passivity and gloom crippling not just the supermarket pre-packed sandwich industry, but the United Kingdom itself.
