banana sarnies are bang on like,.

I've never heard anyone call em pieces before...

if ya take sarnies to work its called bait.

aye the old saveloy dip from dicksons, that shop is canny annoying though. i parked up at the nook the other day. right outside dicksons. id only just stood up when the lass outside the shop was pestering me to try some sausages.... if ya want 2 mince pies they give you one free which often gets wasted. they insist on telling you about the special offers printed on the receipts..... and when they started charging £1.01 for a portion of chips... it just took the p*ss like

I remember I used to have a piece on potted hoch which I think is potted meat. I don't know if the butchers still make it it but I used to love it.

I used to like saveloys when I lived in the Midlands. Hadn't had one for ages, so I tried one not so long back from a local chippie. Not impressed. Nothing like I remembered. Might be where they get them from I suppose.

As for chips being a quid. I can only guess that the business rates that they have to pay, cost of fuel etc. are much more in real terms than when they used to be a tanner back in the 60s. :roll:

Tried a saveloy when I was in London and wasn't impressed. It was a bit like an unsmoked smoked sausage if that makes sense. Going off topic but I used to love pie, mash and liquor.

I once tried jellied eels when I was pissed but couldn't eat it sober.

Probably due to spending too long down south. I don't know anyone that does now.


I've heard that. My nan was from Wolverhampton and used to say things like " Do you want a piece in yer hond(hand)" so I think the expression a piece( presumably originally of bread) does refer to a sandwich or piece of bread. I had always assumed that this was a Black Country expression, but maybe it's a northern thing.
Another one of hers was a "cognogger", which refers to a doorstep sandwich!

Ties in nicely with the regional variations thread , I mentioned about food being taken to work being called bait in Cumbria ( thanks to fin for confirming the spelling) but snap here in Staffordshire . My mother normally referred to sandwiches as pieces too.
Slightly more on topic anything I made as a kid I still happily eat now. I'm also someone that likes marmite , with egg , cheese , sausage all is fine.
The only thing I wouldn't have is a filling given to me once by my mother and that is Nutella . I like the stuff and it's rather nice on a biscuit but on bread it never really felt right.

Back on topic.... I wouldn't go anywhere near a Peanut butter sandwich/piece now...

Loved Peanut butter as a kid.. but now the slightest trace of Peanut sends me into Anaphlaxis .... :shock:
