Pret releases its Christmas range – and it features a new sandwich for 2019

Christmas is less than 50 sleeps away, so it’s fitting that Pret A Manger has just released its Christmas menu.

To get you in that extra festive mood, there’s a new sandwich for 2019 and it will be especially popular among coeliacs.

Please welcome Christmas Lunch, the gluten-free edition – with free-range turkey, herby pork stuffing, port and cranberry sauce and mayo, served on a slice of gluten-free seeded bread.

The original Christmas Lunch is also returning and is similar to the gluten-free option, except that it features port and orange cranberry sauce, as well as baby spinach leaves and crispy onions, nestled in-between two slices.

There are two more choices on offer including a tasty vegetarian sandwich with roasted butternut squash, spicy rocket and nutty Christmas-themed pesto, finished off with yoghurt mayo, crispy onions and caramelised pecans.

Don’t despair vegans, there is something for you, too.

It comes in the form of the Very Merry Christmas Lunch, a sandwich stuffed with grilled carrots, crispy onions, baby leaf spinach, port and orange cranberry sauce and, of course, Pret’s vegan stuffing and caramelised pecans ‘for an added Christmas crunch’.

But wait, there’s more.

You can also dig into two seasonal baguettes, including the brie, pistacho and cranberry or Pret’s Christmas Baguette with turkey, port & orange cranberry sauce, herby pork stuffing, rocket, mayo and crispy onions.

For something from the seas, try the Lobster Roll – which was also sold during summer as a limited-edition item – and is crammed full of Maine lobster claw and knuckle, cucumber, crisp cos lettuce, spring onion and mayo.

Prefer sweet over savoury snacks?

Grab a Pret Mince Pie, Christmas Tiffin – created from a family recipe – and Melvin, the Melting Gingerbread Snowman.

Pair with a hot drink, like a gingerbread latte or crème brûlée latte or hot chocolate with mint or hazelnut syrup.

‘This year, our team of food innovation managers have gone to extra lengths to ensure the ingredients that make up our menu of Christmas items are the most delicious they’ve ever been,’ said Hannah Dolan, Pret’s global head of food innovation.

‘From tasting stuffing at 7am on the hottest day in July, to using a well-loved family tiffin recipe for one of our sweet treats, we’ve been dedicated to getting Christmas right, and can’t wait to hear what the nation thinks of the food.’
