Marks And Spencer Lets Customers Choose New 'Kebab' Filling in 'Sandwich Showdown'
| Last updated
When it comes to sandwiches fillings, the choices really are endless. But Marks and Spencer are making the options more endless still with their 'sandwich showdown'.
The store recently launched a chicken vindaloo sandwich, suggesting that it could be the hottest sandwich in the world. Now the retailer is asking people to choose between a kebab shop sandwich with spiced lamb or a smokehouse chicken sandwich, with the winner of the vote being rolled out in stores later this month.
We're planning a sandwich showdown! Vote for our next flavour and only the winner will get its chance to shine on shelves. What will you pick: Kebab Shop with spiced lamb OR a BBQ classic, Smokehouse Chicken? Pick your #MyMarksFave - the winner will be in store later this month!

The former contains lamb doner meat, chilli sauce and salad, while the smokehouse chicken is comprised of chicken, coleslaw and barbecue sauce. People on Twitter seemed split on the showdown, with some in either camp and others in neither camp.
One person wrote: "If you don't vote kebab sandwich you're unwell!"
Another tweeted: "Smokehouse chicken please."
While a third added: "My favourite a good clean cheese and onion sandwich......maybe with a cheeky cider.....none of that gunk rubbish!"
For what it's worth, it looks like the smokehouse sandwich is winning the showdown and will be coming to stores near you, as it is currently leading with 63 per cent of the vote.

An M&S spokesman said the store would be introducing eight new street food inspired sandwiches across the summer.
He said: "M&S offers over 70 different sandwich options, with favourite fillings such as Prawn Mayo, BLT and Cheddar Cheese Ploughman's dominating our bestsellers.
"Each season we introduce new fillings to the range and for this summer we're adding eight street food inspired sandwiches and wraps and are asking customers to help us choose the flavours they'd most like to see in store."
