The world is full of weird and wonderful food combinations, and there are millions of potentially amazing flavour combos just waiting to be discovered.
Some unusual mixes actually end up tasting amazing – loaded recently tried peanut butter and mayo on a burger and it’s changed our lives forever – but some are just downright wrong.
One dish that definitely falls into the latter category is a controversial new sandwich being sold in Wales.
So what’s in this sandwich? Ham? Ham and cheese? Ham, cheese and salad? Nope – it’s actually Terry’s Chocolate Orange and lettuce. Obviously…
A shop in Cardiff has gone viral after offering customers rolls stuffed with chocolate and salad – no butter – for £2.25.
This is now a thing in Cardiff. Yet some people claim Wales is ready for independence. pic.twitter.com/pJYdXZYgFB

That wasn’t all either. The shop were also trying to peddle liquorice allsorts rolls for £0.99. Both sandwiches were in the reduced section, so can’t have been selling that well.
Of course, you don’t have to traipse all the way to Wales to try it out for yourself.
loaded thought we’d try it out for ourselves, and a quick trip to Tesco’s later, we were putting together our own sample sandwich.
Let’s just say this: It somehow manages to make two of our favourite ingredients – Chocolate and bread – taste like crap. Never again. Never, never again.
We weren’t the only people who absolutely disagree with the strange combination, and Twitter has been full of negative comments ever since the news broke.
Here at loaded, we’re always up for trying interesting food combos, but this is definitely a step too far.
@TriForceAwakens Why though? Who "LETS PUT LIQUORICE IN A SANDWICH"? Also can i get chocolate orange and lettuce with butter?

I'd eat a chocolate orange and cheese sandwich but then, I am awful.

I like that there are baguette truthers, trying to get to the bottom of the chocolate orange baguette mystery

Tbh tho Terry's chocolate orange in a baguette doesn't sound that bad. Bit like a brioche

I love chocolate, it's one of my favourite foods, but chocolate, orange&lettuce on a baguette? That's not my idea of a good sweet&sour combo
