What's Your Favourite High Street Christmas Sandwich?

By Gary Cutlack on at

We've had the mince pie round up, now it's time to ironically judge the many forms of Christmas sandwiches out there, as the likes of Greggs, Pret and Waitrose compete to add a bit of cheer to the inherently depressing pre-packaged sandwich market.

Pret a Manger's posh £3.60 Christmas Lunch sandwich option got the biggest kicking in the Guardian's taste test, scoring just 1/5, with the reviewer physically recoiling from the sweetness of the chutney. Waitrose also scored a shocking 1/5, primarily for putting spinach in its Christmas sandwich, plus the Boots turkey/stuffing/cranberry option was also savaged for excessive and over-powering bacon placement.

So what do you do to add some Christmas joy to your lunch? Anything at all? Or do you just have the all-day breakfast and a whole tube of sour cream & onion Pringles as usual, and make it a bit Christmassy by having nine mince pies for pudding? [Guardian]
