Baked bean manufacturers could end up being the real winners of this lovely economic downturn we’re all enjoying. It seems that so-called ‘recession cuisine’ is booming in the UK and, as soon as former Celtic Tiger cubs get used to the idea of not being able to shell out €10 for a flavourless ‘deli’ sandwich at their local convenience store, Ireland will surely be following suit. I’m surprised some of our take away chains haven’t been a little quicker to capitalise on everyone’s financial misfortune. There could well be major ‘pizza’ wars “out in” Tallaght, where melted plastic cheese and reconstituted pig/cow slices on tomato puree-sodden slabs of thick, spongey toast is the staple diet; but what of the sandwich outlets? Where are their bargains going to come from? I know – why not sell two slabs of sliced pan stuffed full of crisps and accompany that with a bite-sized Crunchie? Call it the ‘Kredit Kruncher’, and mark it at €2 a pop (with optional student/staff discount) – cheap, cheerful and, most importantly, not even remotely good for you.
