I love all these national weeks that occur during the year and as a sandwich lover I raise a wholemeal triangle in recognition of the ‘British Sandwich Week’ which is from 9th-15th May.
They are definitely a well loved British institution which should be celebrated with a round of cucumber sandwiches. The fourth Earl Of Sandwich gave his name to this British lunchtime, teatime, in fact anytime tradition in 1762 and we’ve been munching away ever since.
The joy of a sandwich is you can make it as healthy and wholesome as you like or the complete opposite and expose yourself to the delights of peanut butter, chocolate spread and bacon. Oh the joy of a bacon sandwich….yum…sorry I was lost in my thoughts there for a moment!
The second crucial thing in a sandwich is the transportation of said item to school, to work, to your picnic and so on. We’ve got a large range of lunch boxes available especially for children of which The Gruffalo Tin Lunch Box and Dinosaur Tin Lunch Box are two of the favourites. Little girls love the Gisela Graham Fairy Tea Party Lunch Bag and the Emma Bridgewater Dancing Mice Lunch Box. For the adults the Union Jack Tin Lunch Box is popular along with the Emma Ball Designer Tea Time Lunch Tin.
