Pret is selling Christmas sandwiches SIX MONTHS early

PRET A Manger is selling its Christmas sandwich this month for those who missed out on it due to lockdown restrictions last year.

The cafe chain said the turkey and stuffing sandwich is available from 10am this morning in an attempt to boost Brits' moods after months in lockdown.

If you're keen to get your hands on a Christmas lunch this summer you need to move fast, as they're only available until the first week of August.

After that, they'll be taken off the shelves before returning over the winter.

The festive treat costs £3.75 and 50p from every sale will be donated to the The Pret Foundation, which tackles homelessness and poverty.

To find your local Pret store, you can use the coffee shop's online store locator.

You can also order from Pret using its delivery partners Deliveroo, Uber Eats and Just Eat.

But remember you'll have to pay a delivery fee when you use a food ordering app, and some items can be more expensive than in-store.

The Christmas treat will be available to buy in all Pret stores across the country, but a lucky 100 customers at the chain’s 182 Wardour Street store will be able to get it for free from 11am today.

Slade lead singer and Christmas icon Noddy Holder, who is fronting Pret's advertising campaign, will be handing them out in person.

If you head down to the central London store in the hopes of getting a free sandwich this morning, you should note that social distancing rules still apply.

As well as the classic turkey and stuffing filling, the Christmas lunch includes spinach, crispy onions and free-range mayo.

Pret will share a vegan nut roast recipe on its social media channels to cater for plant-based diets, but no Christmas meat alternative will be available in stores.

Clare Clough, UK managing director of Pret A Manger, said: “Every year customers ask us for the Christmas sandwich to return earlier and earlier, and after many customers missed out on having one last year we’ve decided to stand by our mission of spreading joy through our food and coffee, and bring our iconic Christmas sandwich back early for a limited time this summer.

"While we can’t change the weather or the football scores this summer, we can help people celebrate and recreate some festive joy by reuniting them with their favourite Christmas sandwich.”

Shortage of Haribo sweets is expected to hit the UK due to a lorry driver shortage.

Asda has brought back its £5 deal where you can get two pizzas, a drink and Sky Movies voucher.

Morrisons is selling a hot tub for £275 and it’s cheaper than Lidl’s.
