“ Manufacturer: Tesco / Type: Sandwich „
I'm working my way through the Tesco sandwiches at the minute because I take my little sister to playgroup twice a week and it finishes just after the kids have had their dinner, I don't bother taking a packed lunch for myself so I just pop into Tesco on the way home and grab something from there.
Today's choice was Salmon & Cucumber and it cost £1.30, you can get it as part of a meal deal with crisps and a drink but when the sandwich is so cheap it seems a bit stupid to make it cost more when we've always got crisps and pop in the house! lol
It's a nice sandwich but nothing I couldn't do myself at home, it's got a wickedly fresh flavour and the salmon has been drained good because it hasn't made the bread go soggy or anything. The bread is gorgeous, it's proper soft and like a mix between brown and white bread. It turns out it's actually white bread but has got oatmeal in it and that gives it a bit of a brown bread taste and feel.
The salmon is a mix of red and pink tinned salmon, it's proper tasty but like I said this is nothing I couldn't have done myself with the salmon we've got in the cupboard! There was quite a bit of salmon in the sandwich and it's dead fresh tasting, there's not that much cucumber but that's fine with me because I'm not mad keen on cucumber in sandwiches anyway and usually end up picking most of it out.
There isn't any butter on this sandwich and it doesn't need it anyway because of the salmon being so moist, they have used a bit of mayo and I don't even think this is needed because you can't hardly taste it and it just makes the sandwich contain more fat.
This sandwich has got 300 calories and 6.8g fat, that's not that bad compared to some other sandwiches I've had from Tesco but without the mayo I reckon the fat content could be slashed down.
Recommended..... but only if you're out and about because you can make the same thing at home!
