I'm a Bacon & Tomato/Chicken Salad Sandwich Girl

What does your sandwich preference say about your personality? Hellmann's mayonnaise commissioned a study recently. Even though the study was done in fun, the doctor who conducted the study, Dr. Alan Hirsch, took a scientific approach in the study of the 2,747 people who were interviewed. These subjects were given all sorts of personality tests. Their sandwich preferences were then cross correlated with the personality results to determine what their choices said about them. Spouses and partners were questioned as well.

My #1 choice:
Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich lovers: We are conscientious perfectionists. We are devoted in all areas of our lives:work, home and relationships. The best words to describe us who prefer the BLT: honest and full of integrity.

My #2 choice:
Chicken Salad sandwich lovers: We are well adjusted and empathic, easy-going and understanding.

My #3 choice:
Tuna Salad sandwich lovers: We are generally aggressive and achievement oriented. We are natural leaders and driven to succeed in both work and personal relationships.

Okay, so 2 out of 3 correct guesses isn't bad. I think I am not like #3 at all, but I do enjoy a good tuna sandwich. #1 and #2 are right on in my humble opinion. I wonder what my love of Firehouse Subs New York Steamer says about me......

So now you take the Hellmann's sandwich challenge and find out if your sandwich preference matches your personality. Click here.


  1. Oh, I love quizzes. Especially about sandwiches! I'll go check it out. And I do so love that wedding video....makes me cry every time!

    Thanks for your contribution to my movie house comments. I remember Indiscreet well.... a most lovely London home, wasn't it?!

  2. I love your movie choices at Pamela's AND I love Frasier AND I love all of your favorite things! Save crunching ice, lest in my own enjoyment, I become too much of a hypocrite, as I cannot always, alas, listen to others crunch ice. Mostly those with specific cranium types. Great post and link! Good Old Hellman's; they're the best mayo. I only wish they'd surveyed a few more sandwiches!

    I'm glad to find your great blog!


  3. :) I'm definitely a chicken salad girl. I will check it out.

  4. Got any of those sandwiches left? :P

  5. My absolute favorite sandwich is a tomato sandwich on toast with butter and salt and pepper. No bacon, no lettuce, I wonder what that says about me...

  6. I had no idea that a choice of a sandwich can reveal that much about one's personality.;)) I am off to take the test.;))

  7. Yum! I'll eat anything on a sandwich as long as it has extra mayo...real mayo. :)

  8. When I was still a meat eater, I loved chicken salad on rye with tomato and a slice of sharp cheddar ... and I loved a good bacon and tomato on sour dough toast (toast needs to be well done, I dont like no pale toast!) but tuna salad (especially Zabar's 'homemade' tuna salad in which there are always chunks of tuna) on well toasted sour dough with a slice of cheddar or even Farmhouse gouda .. floats my boat bit time .. with a side of crunchy red grapes .. nirvana .. now you have made me so hungry ...

  9. My absolute favorite is mayo,bolonga,thin sliced onion and dill pickle. Heaven knows what that says about me!

  10. I'm a ham and cheese sandwich lover which Hellman's told me means I'm inquisitive, and that I work better alone. Both "right on!" :-)

    As far tas the Milano cookies...the orange zest was definitely tasted in the chocolate filling, the lemon flavoring in the cookie's dough was not as noticable, more of an enhancer. The recipe was very easy to make!

  11. What a fun quiz.

    I've always found it interesting that some know the mayo as Hellman's, while the rest of us know it as Best Foods.

  12. PS: If you like looking at movie interior shots of homes go to Julia's blog "Hooked On Houses"

    She's shown many!

  13. Actually, the bacon and tomato sandwich looked so good I made myself one at 11:30 last night. Totally worth the effort.

  14. FIrehouse subs new york steamer? What, pray tell, is that?


I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
