Exploding Cheese Chomp
Lettuce, Tomato, Chilli Peppers, Cheesy Wotsits
Goes Great With: Teletext,
a Twix and a can of Irn Bru
Hmm. A difficult one to review as this is a sandwich
which will score well without, conversely, tasting as good as you feel it
maybe should. The fridge being particularly bare,
the test sandwich used in this review comprised of the last few lettuce
leaves, the last of the ham, and the leftover chillies from the chilli
chicken dinner of the night before (6 Bites Tasty, by the way).
Living up to its name, the hot and cheesy combination of chilliís and
Wotsits work a treat. Itís a confrontational
punk-like work of art. Itís like the Wotsits are exploding as you
chomp down. So why does one get the feeling that theyíve been cheated?
The answer to this might lie in its complexity. True, the lettuce leaves add
much needed density, but there still feels like
there is something missing. Structurally, the lack of liquid
based ingredients of any kind (such as sauce or preserves) ensures that your
sandwich will maintain its composition throughout consumption. Unfortunately
and no less paradoxically, the flipside is that this may well be precisely
what the eater feels is missing.
Production Considerations: Use a number of chilliís to taste.
Not as many may be needed as it may initially appear.
Best Points: A sandwich with a
genuine kick to it is hard to come by. This sandwich checks that
box with aplomb.
Worst Points: That feeling you get, when you realise that
something is amiss, that something is missing.
Score: 4 Bites Tasty
