Review of Tesco Chicken, Avocado and Bacon sandwich, consisting of roast chicken and sliced avocado with sweetcure bacon, lemon and black pepper mayo in a malted bread.
If the avocado is suppose to make an impact in this sandwich, then it certainly has. Until I tried this sandwich, I never had given avocado ago before, in any shape or form.
My first thought was it is nothing special, neither in the sandwich or how it could taste better on it’s own. If it wasn’t for the peppered mayo it would of been quite bland.
The avocado doesn’t provide a crunchy bite – more like a soft apple – and has a mild, mellow flavour coming through. But a combination of all the filling does make for a better sandwich.
Overall, I wouldn’t be rushing out to try this sandwich again, but the taste would appeal to most sandwich eaters.
