Pret have launched their popular Christmas sandwich five months early in the middle of July - and customers are buzzing about it.

After being inundated with requests to released the festive bite, the sandwich shop has finally decided to give the people what they want.

Unfortunately, due to the lockdowns during the winter months we weren’t able to get our fix of the beloved turkey sandwich.

The sandwich consists of turkey with a port and orange cranberry sauce, herby pork stuffing, baby spinach, mayo and crispy onions, encased in thick-cut bread.

Even the displays inside the shop are draped in fir trees and baubles.

Obviously Pret-lovers and Christmas fanatics alike shared their enthusiasm for the return of everybody’s favourite sandwich.

Customers were so excited that Pret began to trend on Twitter.

Though some were unsure about the prospect of Christmas during the height of summer.

Meanwhile some joked that it was an attempt to tempt people back working in the office.

To keep with the festive theme, who better to front the campaign than Noddy Holder.

The singer of hit Christmas song “Merry Xmas Everyone” will also star in a new promotion for the seasonal sarnie’s summer comeback.

He’s even making an appearance at a Pret store in London’s Wardour Street to give away 100 free Christmas sandwiches from 11am on Tuesday.

Clare Clough, UK managing director of Pret A Manger said: “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.”

If you want a taste of Christmas, you better hurry as the festive sandwich is only available until the first week of August,

With every sandwich bought, 50p goes towards The Pret Foundation that helps with homelessness and poverty.
