Top 10  Lunch Pack sandwiches

Do you know about “Lunch Pack” sandwiches? Instead of your typical crust open-ended sandwich, the Lunch Pack sandwich has no crust and is sealed off at each turn keeping its contents hidden away from the naked eye.

This is a normal everyday food item for Japanese people, so we take it for granted. There are more than 60 different types of Lunch Packs at any given moment! Yes, you read that correctly. Coffee cream, maple sugar margarine and beef stew are just some of the more out-there products.

Today though, we will be focusing on the top 10 Lunch Packs. Who said being square was a bad thing?

    In a given year, around 150 types of Lunch Packs are sold. With new products being released every month, it's no wonder Japanese people are taking it for granted. Some products are even limited to the region like the Apple Butter flavoured sandwich only available in Nagano.

    The Lunch Pack shop is a specialty store where most of the Lunch Packs are for sale. This store is only available in Akihabara and Ikebukuro though.

    There's a free toast service for purchased Lunch Packs. A universal truth is that a Lunch Pack containing cheese is twice as good when toasted. No one is going to dispute that.

    It can be toasted in about a minute and eaten at the stand table in the store.

    The Lunch Pack can be enjoyed as is, but depending on the contents, it may be wise to toast it and get more bang for your buck. In the end, it all comes down to preference.

    Drinks such as hot coffee and bottled milk are also sold here, so it's a great place for a snack during your busy sightseeing adventures.
