Since lockdown began many Brits working from home have grown bored with their lunches.
After all, we often used to select tasty options from Pret or snap up a cheeky supermarket meal deal.
Now, we’re able to cook, but we’re fast running out of inspiration.
One bloke decided not to let lunchtime fatigue get him down.
Ben Taylorson, 40, decided to eat crisp sandwiches instead of plainer choices, but not just any crisp sandwiches.
In a sacrifice we should all appreciate, the Middlesborough man has chosen to try out every single crisp sandwich combo he can think of – for science.
Ben switches up his sarnie filling every day and has been posting his verdicts on Twitter.
The foodie has challenged himself to try a new combo every day of February – and frankly we’re impressed so far.
Firstly, Ben chose a filling of Royster’s T-bone steak flavour crisps with two cheese slices pickled gherkins, ketchup and American mustard.
He said the creation was top notch.
So far, ben has also tried out McCoy’s Salt and Vinegar and anchovies – an odd combo – Doritos, cheese, jalapeños and sour cream, gravy and Monster Munch and even a breakfast sarnie of free eggs and Razzlers.
Ben told the Metro: “One night at the beginning of February I was feeling a bit low, made myself a crisp sandwich to cheer myself up.
“Put it on Twitter.
“More or less immediately my mate Steve got in touch to say ‘that’s not a crisp sandwich!’ because I’d used Wotsits, which are a ‘maize snack’ – not potato crisps (this, as I’ve found out, is a subject a fair few people are surprisingly passionate about)."
He continued: “So the next day I made a different crisp sandwich to wind him up, and then it was suggested I make one every day all month.
“So I gave it a hashtag (on the back of Dry January I went for #CrispFebruary).”
The series has proven wildly popular and Ben has picked up a number of fans.
It seems the great crisp sarnie debate has sparked interest and hundreds of people are retweeting, commenting and liking the posts.

On Reddit, one person commented: "There is something therapeutic about the idea of waking up, thinking of food and then proceeding with 'I’m going to fuck s*** up today'."
Another added: "Where do we draw the line between "a crisp sandwich" and "a sandwich with crisps" here?"
Ben’s favourite so far was the beef Monster Munch sandwich with horseradish sauce with gravy.
The bloke noted: “Half were horrified, half seemed to quite fancy it.”
Other enjoyable options were onion rings with pickled onions and cream cheese, Hula Hoops and tomato puree and Pom Bears with chocolate spread and sprinkles.
What’s your favourite option?
We’re partial to a shredded cheddar cheese and salt and vinegar Walker’s combo.
But, that’s just us…
