Despite their being among the most common staples for school children’s lunch boxes and cozy afternoon teas, we have wrongfully branded sandwiches as a “safe” alternative for lunch.
We’ve slowly been uncovering the secret double-life our sociopathic breaded companion has been leading. This fact will absolutely leave a lot of people bewildered. When you’re done wincing and reading about these 10 sandwich deviations, you’ll most likely feel as deceived as we do.
Don’t forget to inform us if you have a couple of better contenders in the comments.
Without further ado, we present you the craziest sandwiches in the world in no specific order.
Here Comes “The Big Sandwich”
While some sandwiches might aim to be healthy, this super-sized sandwich is hugging this black, chubby sheep status and is instead intended to cause a heart attack on anyone brave enough to try it. Aside from that, its unavoidable bread content makes it a fattier sibling to the smug salad. This giant contains a mixture of sausages, pepperoni, cheese, burgers, chicken nuggets, crisps, bacon, and other heart-attack-inducing ingredients. The final product has around 50,000 calories.
Introducing the Tastykake Sandwich
Now, we have nothing against mixing savory with sweet. As a matter of fact, the loss of chocolate pretzels from UK shelves are still causing us with so much grief. We’re not so sure about one thing though, and that’s combining chocolate covered, peanut butter flavored sponge cakes with cheese burgers. These unusual treats were a real food in Adsum restaurant in Pihiladelphia.
The Amazing Double Down
If you’re the kind of person who loves sandwiches, but despises the bread that constantly comes along with it, you’ll be a huge fan of this delicacy. The KFC special used two kinds of special sauces and cheeses, and two fried chicken fillets to house bacon. Despite the fact that they used under a day’s allowance of sodium in this sandwich, you should not let it stop you from trying this one.
The Ready-to-Eat Candwich
Perhaps this will only be useful in the event of an impending apocalypse, as it is as suspicious as it sounds. It doesn’t need refrigeration, it has a long shelf life, and it even has an eerie selection of flavors (which includes pepperoni pizza and BBQ chicken). This is definitely the sandwich we’d willingly skip. Over and over.
It’s the Luther Burger!
Managing to push our limits of acceptance of sweet combined with savory even more, this burger keeps things very simple, except for the doughnut that keeps it intact. It’s allegedly been named after Luther Vandross, which would probably explain some if his serious weight issues.
The Simple Melo
Skimping on the fillings is up there with burning books and drowning puppies in our mind when making a sandwich. When we saw this monster from the Carnegie Deli in New York, you can imagine how our eyes and jaw widened. Though we think we’ve had this dream before. Named after Knicks player Carmelo Anthony, this intimidatingly tall sandwich is made from salami, pastrami, and bacon.
Try and Solve This Rubik’s Cubewich
Built like a Rubik’s Cube yet with cold meats and cheese, it also looks pretty frustrating to eat. This sandwich is, therefore, quite a frustrating proposition. Yeah it’s cool and all that, but after being reminded enough times where we’re conditioned to believe that we shouldn’t ever play with our food, we’re sort of annoyed now.
The Renowned McDonald Sandwich
Named after its creator, chef Scott McDonald, the £85 meal uses wagyu beef, fresh lobe foie gras, black truffle mayonnaise, brie de meaux, rocket, red pepper and mustard confit, and English plum tomatoes. For £85, we’d expect a plaque, too. This “most expensive sandwich” entry on the list comes from those posh folk at Selfridges.
The Strange Fried Brain Sandwich
Chances are you’re probably not big into eating brains, unless you’re dining near the Temple of Doom or you’re Hannibal Lecter. Therefore, you’ll be every bit as repulsed by this sandwich as we are. Served at a number of mid-western eateries, sliced calves brains get deep-fried in batter. Well, they did before BSE got all serious and stuff. Now they’ve been replaced by pigs’ brains. Much better, obviously.
The First-Ever Lasandwich
How Lasandwich manage to continue bewitching us with its utter ridiculousness is beyond anybody’s comprehension. Its maker, Tesco, have since followed it up with the Strawberries & Cream sandwich, which somehow manages to make even less sense than this one. This cold, disgusting alternative to the warm, delicious Italian favorite kindly provided us with cheese-fuelled nightmares and a temporary increase in heart rate.
