Half-filled sandwiches were the No. 1 ranked convenience store product in a nationwide customer satisfaction poll released today.
The prepackaged sandwiches, which appear chock full of ingredients but are in fact only half filled, are a staple product of convenience stores across the country.
The unsuspecting sandwich consumer will often purchase a konbini sandwich only later to discover their good fortune of half the product being nothing but white bread.
“That’s what I’m looking for in a sandwich, the taste of bread on bread without even a hint of butter,” said one satisfied customer.
“It just makes my day when I’m halfway through eating my sandwich with actual filling in it, like ham or cheese, and then all that remains is a mouthwatering slab of plain white bread.”
The few complaints that emerged from customer surveys queried the wisdom of presenting the side of the sandwich jam-packed with filling.
“I don’t know why they display them that way making everyone think they’re full of ingredients – they should be showing the good half offering that dry white bread taste.”
