M&S (Marks & Spencer) sells a wide variety of pre-packed sandwiches to suit all tastes. The classics, such as egg and watercress, BLT, cheese & onion and prawn mayonnaise are all present, as well as some more exotic varieties such as Brie & grape.
Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and reduced fat options are all available. They also do wraps, sub rolls and ‘luxury’ sandwiches packaged in deli bags.
M&S sandwiches are competitively priced, despite the reputation of better quality than other brands. The ingredients are natural where possible and highlight quality British produce. When it comes to the nutrition of M&S sandwiches, they are generously filled with an average weight that’s slightly higher than other brands, although this means they tend to be slightly higher in calories as well.
Popularity of M&S Sandwiches
Did you know that M&S invented the pre-packed sandwich in 1980? Since then, the nation has eaten 3 billion of its sandwiches – and that’s just M&S! Although all its rivals have copied the formula, M&S still sells 1 in every 5 sandwiches sold today.
A year’s worth of sandwich production for M&S uses:
- enough slices of bread to reach from Manchester to Bangkok
- 700 Olympic pools of mayonnaise
- two jumbo jets full of lettuce leaves
- enough chickens to go twice around the M25.
