Spanish inquisition for Tesco over paella sandwich: Guardia Civil pressure accuses supermarket giant of creating health hazard by using its nation’s conventional rice dish as a snack filling
- Spain’s Guardia Civil accused supermarket Tesco of creating a ‘health menace’
- Paella sandwich was really created ten years in the past as half of a newspaper stunt
- The pressure marked International Paella Day this week by tweeting a image of one
- Outraged police and Spaniards known as it ‘an insult’ and attacked anglicised meals
You’d assume Spanish police had sufficient on their plates tackling crime – but it surely seems they’ve put that apart to take Tesco to job over a ‘heretical’ paella sandwich.
The Guardia Civil pressure has accused the British supermarket giant of creating a health hazard by using its nation’s conventional rice dish as a sandwich filling.
To mark International Paella Day this week, officers tweeted a image with the caption: ‘The “paella sandwich” for some is heresy, for others a violent attack on good taste and it could even threaten health. We are waiting for your formal complaints.’

One outraged Spaniard replied: ‘This is an insult and a lack of respect for a Spanish dish, for a community in Spain, for all Valencians.’
Another added: ‘These things only happen in England.’
In reality, the paella sandwich was created ten years in the past as half of a newspaper stunt but it surely appears the Spanish have by no means forgotten the perceived assault.
Paella is a rice dish from the Valencia area of Spain, normally served with meats, seafood and greens.
And it’s not the primary time the Spanish have rushed to defend their delicacies from anglicisation.

In 2016, Jamie Oliver was given a roasting after the tv chef included chorizo in a recipe for paella.
Responses from offended Spaniards on the time included: ‘Remove the chorizo. We don’t negotiate with terrorists’, and ‘Why don’t you make some rooster nuggets out of your personal fingers?’
