Welcome to the TSR World Cup of Picnic Food!

Summer is here, which means picnic season is here, which means it's time to find out what TSR's favourite picnic food is!

I've semi-crowdsourced 24 picnic foods, and they're going to play off in the month of August until we get a TSR picnic food world champion!

The format will be essentially the same as the Euros: six pools of four foods, with the top two foods in each pool and the three most popular third-placed foods going through to the knockout stage.

Each vote will take place in a TSR thread, with a poll open for three days. Discussion and debate among the different options, stories, anecdotes and any other relevant content to encourage more people to visit the thread and vote in the poll are encouraged!


I've done the draw, and the groups have been drawn as follows:

Pool A
Popcorn
Sausage rolls
Ham sandwiches
Babybels

Pool B
Cheese sandwiches
Sushi
Cucumber sticks
Cupcakes

Pool C
Ritz crackers
Mr Whippy 99s
Crisps
Carrot sticks

Pool D
Houmous
Pork pies
Scotch eggs
Cookies

Pool E
Cocktail sausages
Flapjacks
Rice krispie cakes
Breadsticks

Pool F
Cornish pasties
Bacon sandwiches
Egg and cress sandwiches
Doughnuts

And so your schedule, your World Cup Wallchart if you like, is this (where clickable links will appear):

Pool stage:
1st–4th August: Pool A
2nd–5th August: Pool B
3rd–6th August: Pool C

We have our first pool result from Pool A and our first coin toss required!

:king1: Sausage rolls (59.26%)
:king2: Ham sandwiches (14.81%)
:king3: Popcorn (14.81%)

Babybels are the first eliminated food, and popcorn faces a wait for the other pool results to come in to see if it gets through as a best third-placed food!

To be fair, sausage rolls are the only food to have a No.1 Official Charts hit

Go check out Pools B, C and D as well, linked in the OP, if you haven't already!

I'm still angry about that becoming Christmas No.1! :rofl:

My former boss was the person who thought up and organised the other, unsuccessful, big charity single drive for Christmas No.1 in 2018 with The Fire Tones doing Do They Know It's Christmas, and then they lost to that!

The result is in from Pool B and again it required a coin toss!

:king1: Cupcakes (48.00%)
:king2: Sushi (20.00%)
:king3: Cheese sandwiches (20.00%)

We say goodbye to cucumber sticks, and cheese sandwiches face the nervous wait to see if they're in the knockout stage!
