Pret brings Xmas to July
Pret A Manger is bringing its Christmas Sandwich back for a limited time after being inundated with messages from customers who missed out last December. The iconic sarnie will hit the shelves of Pret shops nationwide from 6th July, helping to bring some festive cheer to customers, even if it is in July.
Served up with thick slices of British turkey in a port and orange cranberry sauce, the Christmas Sandwich is filled with a herby pork stuffing and baby spinach leaves, and is finished with a dab of free-range mayo. Topped with delicious crispy onions, it will be on sale until the first week of August.
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.”
As well as serving up early festive joy for the nation, 50p from every Christmas Sandwich sold will be donated to The Pret Foundation, which has worked to alleviate poverty, hunger and homelessness for the past 25 years.
