Where Has The Real Ham Gone??

Sean D | Mar 2, 2009 01:08 PM

Hey, am I the only person out there who has noticed that it's become nearly impossible to find a real ham sandwich anywhere?? Seriously. Many of the chain sandwich shops are using turkey ham. (This includes Subway.) The rest have switched to that awful re-constructed, gelatinous, sickeningly pink ham-mystery-meat-loaf!

Its not much better at the grocery store. Most of the ham is artificial.

I'm not looking so much for some fancy Italian place where an exotic ham sandwich costs $9. I'd just like to find some place that sells a normal, reasonably priced hot or cold ham and cheese sandwich.

Any ideas??
