Pret’s Christmas menu returns today and we’re just as excited as you might expect. Cue “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” ?
There are a couple of surprises in this year’s festive menu. Pret’s classic Christmas sandwiches (the turkey one and the veggie one) will now be joined by Pret’s first ever VEGAN Christmas sarnie. It’s called the Very Merry Christmas and is a jolly combo of carrots, spinach and vegan stuffing, finished with a port and cranberry sauce, caramelised pecans and crispy onions. Ho ho ho!
Other new additions to the menu include the Festive Winter Salad, a combination of butternut squash, broccoli and spinach with a sprout and apple slaw – all topped with a creamy Wensleydale and cranberry crumble, caramelised pecans and pomegranate seeds, a Smoked Salmon, Soft Cheese and Dill Baguette, and last but by no means least, a MINCE PIE FLAT WHITE. (Yeah, that’s right.)
While we were counting down the minutes, seconds and hours until the launch of the festive menu, Pret’s chefs were working hard in the kitchen until late last night, making up a fresh batch of sandwiches that were then delivered to three homeless charities. 50p of every Christmas sandwich sold this season will be donated to the Pret Foundation Trust, and will help support their Charity Run vans that redistributes unsold food to the homeless through the night, every night.
