Least Preferred Sandwich

A recent YouGov poll asked people about how much they liked certain sandwiches, and I wondered which sandwich people do not like the most. The winner: the Cheese and Tomato sandwich. See the full rankings below.

Notes

  • The data comes via YouGov, which sampled 1,223 people in July 2019. The full results are here (pdf).
  • People had the following choices: really like, somewhat like, neither like or dislike, somewhat dislike, really dislike, and never tried. For the figures above, I calculated the percentage of people who did not either really like or somewhat like, given they tried the sandwich.
  • I left out the Muffuletta sandwich, because about two-thirds of respondents never tried it.
