Shopper is baffled when he orders a bacon and mushroom sandwich

Sainsbury’s shopper is left baffled after ordering a bacon sandwich that came with a giant raw MUSHROOM on the side

  • Engineer John Geoghegan, 42, from Cheltenham, was the unlucky recipient
  • He expected mushroom slices to be with the bacon between the slices of bread
  • But Sainsbury’s staff at the Stroud branch served a raw funghi on the side

A disgruntled Sainsbury’s shopper was left baffled when he ordered a bacon sandwich – and was served a sarnie with a whole raw mushroom on the side.

Engineer John Geoghegan, 42, from Cheltenham, ordered a bacon and mushroom sandwich from the Stroud branch of the supermarket, expecting the funghi to be between the two slices of bread.

But instead, the large Portobello mushroom came on the side and had hardly been cooked – which meant that when he cut into it, water flooded his plate and left his sandwich very soggy. 

Do you want a giant, raw mushroom with that? Engineer John Geoghegan, 42, from Cheltenham was left bewildered and in stitches after being served a bacon and mushroom sandwich that came with a giant nearly-raw funghi on the side (pictured)

John Geoghegan said he was baffled and couldn’t believe the sandwich with a giant raw mushroom garnish was not a joke as he had been expecting the mushroom to be between the two slices of bread

He then shared a hilarious picture of the enormous uncut raw mushroom perched next to his morning treat on his Facebook page last Thursday.  

He wrote: ‘So today I visited Sainsbury’s in Stroud. Placed my order for a bacon and mushroom sandwich. I kid you not, this is what arrived.’

He added: ‘The best bit was when she [the waitress] served it said she didn’t know if I wanted the mushroom in the sandwich or not.’

He later explained: ‘At first I thought it wasn’t cooked. It had been slightly grilled so when I cut into it it flooded the plate.’

Several people commented on the funny picture, with Gary Ford commenting that the giant raw mushroom garnish is bigger than the actual sandwich it comes with

The engineer received several comments from social media users on Facebook who couldn’t believe their eyes.

Lea Burcombe said: ‘That’s so funny,’ while Gary Ford wrote: ‘It’s bigger than the sandwich!’

Katie Freebury said: ‘Are you actually joking? Not much room in that sarnie!’  

John explained: ‘Myself and a colleague stopped for breakfast, and it took a few moments for it to sink in it wasn’t a joke.

‘Especially when she said she didn’t know if I wanted the mushroom in the sandwich or not.

‘We literally fell about laughing.’

Sainsbury’s say John is welcome back any time to reclaim a better sandwich.

A spokesman said: ‘Clearly this wasn’t what John had in mind. We’d like to invite him back for a better buttie.’
