Irish people were given American sandwiches

A group of Irish people were given some of America’s favourite sandwiches to see if they proved as popular over here as they do in the States.

The Irish diners were given a range classics including Philly Steaks, Sloppy Joes and of course the peanut butter and jelly sandwich.Irish people were given American sandwiches

Some of the food combinations seemed a bit unusual to the Irish testers, but most of the sandwiches received positive reviews.

The testers were excited to try the American food, and one joked that she “hadn’t eaten in days in preparation for this”.

The first sandwich served up was the Philly Steak, which has a filling of steak, cheese and onion. Unsurprisingly, it proved to be very popular with the Irish testers. However, one woman pointed out that although it tasted great, it wouldn’t be the right food to eat on a first date if you were trying to make a good impression.

Next up was a Sloppy Joes which was also warmly received, although the testers began to find faults such as “it’s not very inventive” and “you know it’s not good for your arteries”.

Things took a turn for the worse when the Shrimp Po Boy sandwich was served with some of the testers unable to eat it.

The New York Pastrami on Rye also received mixed reviews before the final sandwich was served, the classic American peanut butter and jelly.

Immediately the Irish testers pointed out that in Ireland it would be called peanut butter and jam. The sandwich itself was hugely popular with one of the Irish testers who grinned as he chomped away telling his hesitant female companion: “You’re thinking about it too much!”

The video was produced by YouTube channel FACTS. They have created hundreds of short videos featuring Irish people trying and testing various aspects of different cultures from around the world.
