Have tried the Prawn Mayonnaise Sandwich on Oatmeal Bread and the Chicken & Bacon sandwich on malted wheatgrain bread so far. Both were £1.73 in my work's canteen, no idea if there is a recommended price for them or what it might be........
Both types suffered from a problem I often find in bought sandwiches that the filling is not evenly spread around the sandwich, so the edges were all bread and no filling. In fact there was enough filling in the middle to open the sandwich and redistribute them, but I don't really want to have to do that when I buy a sandwich for a quick and easy meal!
I have had these sandwiches on several occasions and they have generally made a very acceptable quick meal when needed. The oatmeal bread is not quite as oatmeally as I might wish, but it's ok. The only problem I've had, was one time I bought a chicken and bacon one and the bread was really dried out, although the use by date was the following day - I assume there must have been a tiny break in the seal of the packet so the air got in, but it certainly wasn't obvious when I bought it.
The 2 sandwiches I am reviewing here both had fairly high fat content due to the mayonnaise in them (39% GDA, over 27g fat per sandwich). Also a fairly high salt content (29-33% GDA). I believe some of the other sandwiches in the range would probably be lower fat, not sure whether they are lower salt.
I am rating them a 3, because they are usually fine, although the one with the dry bread would get a 1.
Summary: Acceptable quick meal
