A man’s lunch has been ‘ruined’ after his supermarket’s own-brand sandwich was missing one vital and advertised ingredient.
Colin McKenzie, a taxi driver in Edinburgh, took to Twitter to vent his frustration that his Tesco smoked ham and cheddar sandwich was actually just a smoked ham sandwich as it was lacking in cheese.
He wrote, on social media; “Hey @Tesco, where’s the cheddar?”
His cheese-off tweet ended with a crying face emoji.
Tesco did reply to the customer online, writing: “I’m really sorry this has happened.
“Can you please DM us your full name, address & email along with pics of the packaging.
“The bar code, date code and the supplier code (this is on the rear usually after the address) and a picture of the receipt please.
But as one user questioned what he was supposed to do if he no longer had the receipt – a question the supermarket has yet to answer.
According to Tesco’s own website, the sandwich is supposed to comprise of slices of Beechwood smoked ham with mature cheddar and mayonnaise, and is made using a mixture of British and EU pork.
However, some users on Twitter saw the funny side of the issue.
Jsem Ozymandia tweeted: “You need to pay extra for the cheddar, you just bought the idea of it.”
And another user posted: “FFS @Tesco, taking the p**s here”.
