Today’s Would You Rather? question covers a subject that is perhaps closer to my heart than any aspect of food in the world: sandwiches. The mere fact that I went a week before I wrote a blog post about sandwiches is, as anyone who knows me would tell you, stunning.

I would also like to admit that this Would You Rather is not a Jon Eick original, but was suggested by a So Good reader HERE.

Would You Rather?

Option #1: Anytime you eat a sandwich for the rest of your life, it must be on PLAIN white bread. You can choose the brand of plain white bread if you’d like, but if you are eating a sandwich, you are not allowed wheat, rye, sourdough, honey white, hearty white or any other advanced forms of bread.


Option #2: Anytime you eat a sandwich for the rest of your life, you cannot have any condiments on it. To determine what a condiment is, we will use the Wikipedia definition of a condiment, which states that it must have been prepared in some fashion. Meaning a seasoning in its raw form, like salt or other dry spices are still allowed, as long as there is no preparation that went into making them besides simply drying them out. Of course this means no mustard, mayo, ketchup, BBQ sauce, thousand island, ranch dressing or any other condiment you might put on a sandwich.

    Oh Eick, this one was easy for me – I pretty much HATE condiments – mayo, mustard, relish… ew. I mean, I enjoy my kethup and BBQ sauce every now and then, but I can skip the rest. 🙂

    I’m sure the makers of BaconSalt are working on a bread flavoring condiment, so I’ll stick with the white bread.

    GOD!!!! What would happen to one of my most favorite and classic sandwiches, THE REUBEN!? What’s more important, the Thousand Island, or the Rye? I think it would be the Rye.

    A lot of great sandwiches are ruined by condiments. Mayo is vile and disgusting. It makes me sad when people ruin good hamburgers, roast bee sandwiches, and ham sandwiches with it. Even worse, is when someone puts mayo on a really good cheesesteak. That is a crime everything the cheesesteak stands for.
