The Alphabet Sandwich is a “gargantuan tower of food-related gluttony”

The aptly-named Alphabet Sandwich stands at two-feet tall is the creation of fast food fan Nick Chipman, who runs the DudeFood website.


His “gargantuan tower of food-related gluttony” features a mad mix of ingredients, including ramen noodles, macaroni cheese and a Krispy Kreme doughnut.

Coming up with food for each letter as not quite as easy as it sounds – and Nick admitted he struggled when it came to ‘X’.

He revealed: “The idea behind this was to create a sandwich that had 26 different toppings, each one starting with a different letter of the alphabet.

“Now, I know that sounds simple enough, but do you realise how difficult it is to find a food that starts with the letter X?
“To solve that issue I eventually settled on xylocarp, which is defined as ‘a hard, woody fruit that grows on trees,’ or in other words, a coconut.”

Nick, who previously come up with the McEverything – a combination of all 43 sandwiches available at his local McDonald’s – added that he had the opposite problem with other letters, and faced a hard decision when it came to the final mix.

He added: “With F, I couldn’t decide between French fries and fish sticks.”  We want one. And we want one now.
