    This beauty is packing away ham, emmental, chicken crackling, baby gem, tomato, grain mustard and mayo on poppy seed bloomer. Sorry, did someone say CHICKEN CRACKLING?!

    It is the law that this sandwich makes it into every round up, ever, because it is one of the best sandwiches in the world.

    The only thing that could make this sandwich even better would be a stunning view of Cornwall's Lizard Peninsula. Oh wait...

    9. Pork Bun at Pork and Co., Canterbury

    We're over pulled pork in general, but when it comes with this much crackling? Too hard to resist.

    10. Anything from The Earl of Sandwich, Winchester

    Like little fluffy clouds...someone should write a song about them.

    14. Mahi Mahi Banh Mi at Digbeth Dining Club, Birmingham

    Okay so it's not really a banh mi, but it is a sandwich filled with crisp fried fish and fresh, punchy pickles, so we're okay with that.

    15. Bacon and Swiss Cheese Croissant Sandwich at The Urban Shed, Cambridge

    Who says a sandwich always needs bread? Bacon and cheese, on the other hand...
