      Fun quiz................9 out of 10.

      I eat a lot of chicken salad so easy to spot.

        I just pure stunk! I got 4 out of 10 and I prefer chicken salad over tuna. I was voting the chunkier sandwiches as chicken....not always.

            The ironic thing is that two of the ones I got wrong were sandwiches I've actually eaten, from D'Angelos and Le Petit Bistro in Cambridge. But this is a lot harder than it sounds -- I got 6 out of 10.

                Perhaps we're confused because so often chicken salad is made from canned chicken. Frankly, canned chicken tastes remarkably like canned tuna. I kept wondering what the website was promoting. Remember, canned chicken is much more expensive than canned tuna of any grade. As for me, I woulnd't bother with canned chicken, but when I have a hankering for a tuna salad sandwich, I use the canned chicken so my fussy partner will eat it. I just find canned chicken a waste of money.

                On the other hand, if it's chicken salad made from home-poached chicken, YUM!

                I only got 3 right.

                  Michael:

                  This particular website was promoting nothing. It was intended to be a comical addition to their primary website of:

                  http://www.taquitos.net/

                  Which, as one can see, is a snackfood junkie's Valhallia.
                  Also, I only got 5 right. I believe I was classified as a "Sandwich Slacker"...

                    I was very confused by the quiz. It actually looked to me like something that was supposed to be chicken salad (which you would've thought would've been CHUNKIER) that actually turned out to be tuna. Which is what it was. I figured everything that they said was chicken LOOKED like tuna. I mean c'mon, that stuff looked pulverized. Not like real chicken looks in a sandwich. I got an 8 out of 10. So what were they trying to prove? It's certainly not FUNNY.

                    The worse, I mean very WORST was what Chick_fil_a, or whatever they are called (they are consorts of SATAN) called a chicken salad.

                      Ooops, getting far too melodramatic. Time for bed.

                        Entertaining. 80%, but it was purely "intuitive"--i.e., guesswork.

                            I got 6 out of 10, which shocked me. That I'd got so many right that is ! Here in the UK a chicken salad sandwich is usually, well, a salad sandwich with chicken and maybe a touch of mayonnaise, and not a thick mayonnaise paste with shreds of fowl and various vegetables in it, and tuna ( apart from fresh tuna steaks which are great ) I consider food of the devil, ranking only with brussels sprouts and jellied eels as nastinesses of the 1st degree to be avoided at all costs.

                            I'm sure there are possibly some good homemade versions of " chicken salad " et al and I could probably sit down and make one myself, but I still shy away from something that appears to be mainly glop with bits in I like mayo but not THAT much mayo !

                            I did have a chicken saladesque type sammie from a supermarket a while back when it was marked down and I was broke and in a hurry. It was truly horrible. It was supposed to have stuffing ( dressing )in it but that had all been whizzed together to make something that smelt like an uncleaned lavatory and had the texture of poorly mixed wallpaper paste. I have never liked sandwich spreads ( apart from that weird Heinz stuff that appears to be composed mainly of salad cream ( Miracle whip ? ) with little bits of raw veg in, which I adored as a child ) or pastes much so that adds to the aversion.

                              8 out of 10. Lots of educated guessing.

                                Six outta 10. I need to eat more tuna, apparently. Slacker.
