Morrisons' New Christmas Wrap Swaps the Tortilla for Yorkshire Pudding

By Tom Pritchard on at

The Christmas food/headline grab is in full swing, with just about everyone coming up with a bizarre type of food in an attempt to hog all the attention this Christmas. Thankfully Morrisons has kept it simple, and not developed something that involves sprouts or adding chocolate to cheese. Instead it's gone and released a Christmas wrap that uses Yorkshire Pudding instead of a regular tortilla.

The wrap has all the usual Christmas things you might expect from a supermarket, including turkey, pork sage and onion stuffing, cranberry sauce, bacon, mayonnaise, and spinach. The only difference is that it's all wrapped up in Yorkshire's favourite savoury pudding. Spinach doesn't seem all that christmassy to me, though, but other supermarkets have slapped it into their festive food for some reason. Perhaps to point and go "look it's got vegetable in it!" and make it seem healthier than it actually is. At least it hasn't got sprouts in it. Bleurgh.

Ben White, Morrisons sandwich expert said:

"Everyone loves Yorkshire pudding and everyone loves Christmas dinner, so we are combining the two to create a modern classic. We’re looking forward to hearing what customers think but we hope that they’ll love it."

The wrap is on sale now, and costs £3. It's also part of the supermarket's 'food to go' meal deal, if you fancy some extras to go along with it. You need to get the taste of spinach out of your mouth somehow, right? [Metro]
