When was the last time you popped into a high street supermarket hankering for a gender-specific sandwich?
The answer is 'probably never'. But that didn't stop Waitrose from labelling one of their sandwiches a 'Gentleman's Smoked Chicken Caesar Roll'.
The roll, which is part of the Heston Blumenthal range at the chain, contains 'gentleman's relish', an anchovy mayonnaise, so there is some logic behind the name.
A description of the sarnie reads as:
The ultimate Caesar salad to go. A parmesan ciabatta roll filled with pulled, smoked chicken breast, beechwood smoked bacon and Parmigiano Reggiano all topped with anchovy mayonnaise and Cos lettuce for crunch.
However, Waitrose has vowed to change the name of the roll following complaints from Twitter, most notably from London's Night Czar, Amy Lame.
Has anyone checked on the men recently? Are they OK?
