From Wednesday’s editions of The Mirror, a list of potential new menu items for Tom Conran’s insanely overrated and overpriced Lucky 7 (Westbourne Grove).

Fancy a Mars Bar sandwich washed down with a glass of milk and coke?

Or perhaps you’d prefer a buttered Weetabix.

The bizarre snacks are revealed in a survey of the nation’s most unusual eating habits.

The study, for bakers Warburtons, found we are increasingly keen to try new combinations.

Mandy Lloyd of Birmingham College of Food said: “People are becoming more adventurous.

“With a wide selection of food available they love to experiment.”

Top 10 most unusual concoctions: 1 Spaghetti Bolognese on a bed of crisps, 2 Mars Bar sandwich, 3 Chicken casserole with chocolate sauce, 4 Coca-Cola with milk, 5 Gherkins and ice cream, 6 Peanut butter and bacon sandwich, 7 Banana in chicken soup, 8 Honey and cheese sandwich, 9 Chocolate and salted crisps, 10 Coca-Cola and red wine.

    The British don’t understand how food is supposed to work? Never heard that one before.

    au contraire, Don. The British _do_ understand how food is supposed to work. It’s Tom Conran’s Lucky 7 that sucks.

    Next you’re going to tell me that Crazy Homie’s Mexican Restaurant (right next door to Lucky 7) sucks as well!
