Look, we bloomin’ love lunch.

For the majority of us, it’s a momentary respite from the crushing weight of a 9-to-5, and for the six people that actually like their jobs, it’s basically just playtime for adult.

The problem is with SO MANY lunch options nowadays, choosing what to nibble on has become the HARDEST life decision… And we have to make it every single day!

So to give you a helping hand, we’re rounding up ALL the options on offer and weighing up the best, to make sure your lunch hour leaves you a little more ‘Mmmm’ than just ‘Meh’.

THE BASIC ‘MEAL DEAL’ OPTION

What exactly is it?
A British staple, the immortal Meal Deal.

Will it make you bankrupt?
The Meal Deal is as cheap as it is boring.

Well, is this the option for you?
Is your favourite past-time queuing at post offices? Do you enjoy listening to other people describe their dreams? Is your national hero Alan Titchmarsh?

Great. You should definitely get a £3 Meal Deal. 

THE DEPRESSING ‘LUNCHBOX’ OPTION

What exactly is it?
A tupperware chock-full of congealed pasta or questionable chilli.

Will it make you bankrupt?
Financially, you’ll be fine. Mentally, not so much.

Well, is this the option for you?
This isn’t how life was supposed to be.

But in fairness, you probably read from some financial blogger that you could save £100k in your lifetime by bringing lunch from home, and while you can’t put a price on happiness, it seems like you can definitely put a price on not-sadness… About £100k it seems.

THE HUNGOVER ‘DIRTY’ OPTION

What exactly is it?
The salty taste of capitalism, a trip to McDonald’s.

Will it make you bankrupt?
Probably not, unless you consistently add 20 chicken nuggets to your large Big Mac order. So actually… Yes, you will go bankrupt.

Well, is this the option for you?
We think you need to be having a truly terrible day in order to get away with having McDonald’s for lunch.

Like, the worst day. If you’re just hungover, you probably need to tell people your cat has just died as well. Then it’s probably okay to get some nuggs.

THE HEALTHY ‘HIPSTER’ OPTION

What exactly is it?
A little bit pretentious. Probably vegan. Definitely full of falafel.  

Will it make you bankrupt?
You might dip into your overdraft because healthy usually = pricey. Although the overdraft thing might be due to the 45 pairs of skinny jeans you’ve bought this year, you hipster you.

Well, is this the option for you?
If you’ve ever done any of the following, you probably already choose this option every single day anyway:

Worn fake glasses; tweeted about coffee; finished a lot of sentences with ‘before they got big’; tried on a £70 grey jumper in Urban Outfitters; and of course, captioned an Insta of your lunch with ‘kale me now’.

THE HUNGRY ‘DIET’ OPTION

What exactly is it?
3 bites of an apple and 15 mugs of green tea.

Will it make you bankrupt?
You might get a call from your bank regarding suspicious activity because basically, all your money isn’t flying out for once.

Well, is this the option for you?
*tummy rumbles loudly sounding a bit like noooooooooooooooooooo*  

THE BEST OPTION

What exactly is it?
A totally delicious meal at Revolution.  

Will it make you bankrupt?
Not a chance. With 50% off food every single Monday, coming here for lunch basically makes you an entrepreneur. And a well-fed entrepreneur at that.

Well, is this the option for you?
YES… Duh.
