Marks & Spencer might be launching a doner kebab sandwich (yes, really)

Here's why people aren't happy about it…

Think of a doner kebab and you probably have flashbacks of a night out and the regretful decision you made to order one at 3am. Indeed, the wrap has arguably become the go-to food known to curb drunken munchies but now Marks and Spencer is hoping to give it a new spin. In an unpredictable move, the supermarket giant has announced that it's been masterminding a doner kebab sandwich and reactions have been mixed to say the least.

Following the supermarket’s launch of a new chicken vindaloo sandwich which confidently claims to be the ‘hottest in the world’, Marks and Spencer decided to ask fans which unusual sarnie should come next. M&S's social team tweeted: "Vote for our next flavour and only the winner will get its chance to shine on shelves. What will you pick: Kebab Shop with spiced lamb OR a BBQ classic, Smokehouse Chicken? Pick your #MyMarksFave – the winner will be in store later this month!"

However, not everyone was happy to be given the vote. One user wrote, "You continue to become down market", another asked: "Since when did @marksandspencer become so basic? A kebab meat sandwich?!?" and someone else simply questioned: "Who in their right mind is buying a kebab sandwich!?".

With Twitter being the place to vent an opinion, most of the rage was about the sandwich not being gluten-free or vegan but as loyalists of the brand pointed out, there's many options that fall into these categories already.
