Guardia Civil accuses supermarket giant of creating health hazard by using paella as a snack filling
You’d suppose Spanish police had sufficient on their plates tackling crime – however it seems they’ve put that apart to take Tesco to job over a ‘heretical’ paella sandwich.
The Guardia Civil pressure has accused the British supermarket giant of creating a health hazard by using its nation’s conventional rice dish as a sandwich filling.
To mark Worldwide Paella Day this week, officers tweeted a image with the caption: ‘The “paella sandwich” for some is heresy, for others a violent assault on good style and it might even threaten health. We’re ready in your formal complaints.’

One outraged Spaniard replied: ‘That is an insult and a lack of respect for a Spanish dish, for a neighborhood in Spain, for all Valencians.’
One other added: ‘These items solely occur in England.’

Paella is a rice dish from the Valencia area of Spain, normally served with meats, seafood and greens.
And it’s not the primary time the Spanish have rushed to defend their delicacies from anglicisation.

In 2016, Jamie Oliver was given a roasting after the tv chef included chorizo in a recipe for paella.
Responses from offended Spaniards on the time included: ‘Take away the chorizo. We don’t negotiate with terrorists’, and ‘Why don’t you make some hen nuggets out of your personal fingers?’
