Tesco Smoked Ham & Cheddar Sandwich Review

Tesco’s own smoked ham and Cheddar sandwich consists of mild Cheddar cheese with reformed smoked ham, sitting on a spread of mayonnaise in a malted brown bread.

When you first open this sandwich it gives out quite a strong smell of ham, combined with an enhanced smell of freshness from the bread – but really it’s far from fresh.



Once picked out of it’s tight packaging, you’ll certainly notice this ham sandwich has some weight to it with a full body right up to the edges.

But how does it taste? what you’s expect from any Cheddar and ham sandwich combination, but this Tosco one does taste really good.

It’s made from sliced ‘mild Cheddar with reformed ham – you know that one with water pumped into it – but it still makes a good ham.

I wouldn’t hesitate in buying this ham and cheese sandwich again when the time arises. It has a good filling that makes it value for money with no skimping on the ingredients.

This is also helped by a mild flavour malted brown bread that allows the filling to shine through.

Taken out of the packet, a close up look reveals a single layer of sliced Cheddar cheese, perhaps with two thin layers of ham and a thin spread of mayonnaise.

The back of the sandwich doesn’t quite reflect the visible filling from the open side with just a little bit of ham spilling out.

Open up the sandwich to inspect the ham on one slice and the cheese on the next. Tesco have done quite well here to bring the filling up to the edges.
