To celebrate the launch, Slade lead singer Noddy Holder stars in a video heralding the return of Pret’s CHRIIIIIIISSSSSMAAAS sandwich- has favourite December sarnie.
Served with slices of British turkey in a port & orange cranberry sauce the Christmas sandwich is filled with a herby pork stuffing, spinach leaves, topped with onions and mayo. The sandwich will be on sale until the first week in August before returning in the festive season.
For every Christmas sandwich sold 50p will be donated to the Pret Foundation, which works to alleviate poverty, hunger and homelessness.
Clare Clough, UK managing director of Pret A Manger, commented: “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.”
