The Bri­tish eat about 11.5 bil­lion sand­wiches a year – so over a life­time, the av­er­age Brit will con­sume 18,304 sand­wiches, spend­ing around £48,000!

In a re­cent sur­vey of 2,000 peo­ple over half ate at least one sand­wich a day – the ob­vi­ous op­tion for work­ers on the go and kids’ lunch boxes, with a third pick­ing the same fill­ing each time. The sand­wich was named af­ter John Mon­tagu, 4th Earl of Sand­wich who liked to eat slices of roast beef be­tween slices of bread. Chicken is the most pop­u­lar fill­ing in the UK of com­mer­cially pro­duced sand­wiches and around 43,000 tons of chicken is eaten per year in them.
