Anyone familiar with our site will know that there's been a bit of a furfore in relation to 3-in-1s – those seemingly simple trays of beige food items have created quite a stir.
One member of the LD crew is not that big a fan of these carby trays of deliciousness as he, very vocally, informed our readers.
Naturally, our community was also very vocal in responding to this blasphemous article.

Enough of this rubbish. Time to set the record straight. Here are 5 reasons why 3-in-1s will always have a place in our hearts.
1. They're a multifunctional meal
Breakfast? Lunch? Dinner? All three? Ahh yeah. Particularly good when re-heated as a hungover brekkie.
2. 3-in-1s are super versatile
How could you ever get sick of a dish when you have so many different variations on it?
Curry, sweet and sour, satay or BBQ? 3 in 1 or 4 in 1? Crispy chicken or chicken balls? The possibilities are endless.
3. They're easy on the pocket
4 quid for enough carbs to see you through 'til Christmas? Hunbelievable.

4. They require minimal effort to eat
Chewing is for losers.
5. 3-in-1s are easy to come by
Just about every Chinese does them so no matter when you get a craving there'll be one close by. Plus, they're pretty hard to fuck up.
It's rice, chips and sauce, mate!
So, there you have it.
3-in-1s are a national treasure, and I will not enter into further discussion on the matter.
Next person who disses our unofficial national dish of deliciousness can get the fucking boat!
