When it comes to crisp butties, everyone has their preference. Let me prove it, a quick workplace poll of... four people found a mixture of: salt and vinegar Squares on buttered Warburtons, Quavers with Salad Cream (no joke), cheese and onion Walkers and, finally, a wildcard chilli heatwave Dorito sarnie.
Therefore when it comes to the 'ultimate crisp sandwich', the result is bound to ruffle some feathers. According to extensive and trusted research the best one of them all should be made with white sliced bread (no s***) and filled with cheese and ready salted crisps.
No, it's apparently not some sick joke. What's worse is that the winning combo is followed by cheese with cheese and onion (29 percent of the poll) and in third place is ham with ready salted (27 percent).
But that doesn't stop more unusual crisp flavours sneaking into the top spots, with a simple cheese sandwich plus pickled onion crisps in eighth place, favoured by 19 per cent of people.
The research, commissioned by Walkers, also found that Brits are pretty fussy about their crisp sarnies, with people insisting on white sliced bread (39 percent) cut into rectangles (47 percent).
It emerged nearly nine in 10 have slipped the crunchy snack into their sarnie to improve the texture and flavour, while a third said crisp sandwiches make their lunch more exciting.
When it comes to crisps being inside or outside of a butty, 27 percent prefer to eat them between bread, while 34 percent opt for having them on the side of the plate. What is wrong with people?
Well, one of those , is none other than Gordon Ramsay, who is a firm 'out' when it comes to crisp sandwiches. We could have guessed.
Gordon said: "It's not even a discussion, first of all, you can't taste the flavour of the crisps because it's sandwiched between two layers of bread and secondly, the bread makes your crisps soggy."
Ramsay later admitted off camera that - perhaps slightly surprisingly - his favourite combination was a humble tuna sweetcorn sandwich with salt and vinegar crisps on the side.
When it comes to actual crisp preferences, classic potato crisps were found to be the go-to (59 percent), but crinkle cut (14 percent) and lower-fat alternatives such as baked crisps (8 percent) also proved popular.
Generally, the most popular crisps to have in a sandwich were found to be cheese and onion, followed by ready salted and salt and vinegar.
