Goodbye, Kitty. A guide To The Humble Sandwich Box.

Hi there!

Today is my anniversary!

Me and my husband have been married now for 4 years!

Before I rush off and enjoy the lovey dovey festivities I wanted to share my latest project with you.

Have you ever seen a sandwich box and thought to yourself “What sandwich would fit in that?”.

Well, I have, so I decided to run some experiments on this cute little Hello Kitty sandwich box.
Don’t worry, no boxes were hurt in the making of this test.

I tried 4 different loaves from 4 different brands to see just what bread would fit into this box.

Hello Kitty Sandwich Box Hovis

First off was a Hovis Soft White loaf.

Nope….I’m not sure the shoe fits.

Phew, I was wrong, the Hovis loaf fits after all.

Next up was a Kingsmill Great White loaf.

Just for the record this bread is not made of sharks.

This one looks even worse than the first.

I’m not a very good judge of space I guess.

The third victim, I mean…..loaf..was a Roberts Bakery Soft White loaf.

I think this one might fit with a little coaxing….I have an idea….

That is one snug sarnie.

Last but not least I tried out this mini Warburtons Crusty Premium White Sliced Loaf.

No.

This sandwich box is incredibly successful if you like sandwiches of hellish doom.

If you enjoy a bit of relaxing origami, folding pieces of bread into this could be a relaxing new hobby.

Lets get serious now.
NO BREAD FITS INTO THIS BOX!
None of the biggest brands here in the UK had a chance.
Even the Warburtons Crusty Loaf, which is specifically a very small loaf, wouldn’t fit.

To be honest, this isn’t just the problem of this specific sandwich box, many are made in a size that would only be suitable for…….er…….petit…mini….dwarfen breads of littleness?

All in all, don’t buy a sandwich box.
Unless you can stow a piece of your usual bread in a pocket and whip it out in a shop for the proper measurements it may well be useless.
