Shoppers can get into the festive spirit as Christmas sandwiches land at Asda.
Shoppers can choose from a selection of traditional sandwiches on a variety of breads, meaty sub-rolls and luxury wraps - all included in the three-for-two meal deal.
Scoring four out of five stars and crowned as Highly Recommended by BBC Good Food is the Turkey and Stuffing Festive Deli Sandwich (£3.50). The thick white bread is packed with smoked turkey breast, pork, apricot and chestnut stuffing, gravy mayonnaise and finished with a fruity cranberry chutney. In its review, BBC Good Food describe it as ‘Cut horizontally rather than diagonally, this deli sandwich has an almost homemade feel. There is a good ratio of herby stuffing to shredded turkey, with a generous quantity of gravy mayo and cranberry sauce to keep it moist.’
The Festive Feast Sandwich (£3.00) is for the meat-lovers, combining turkey breast and tender sausages with smoked bacon, gravy mayo, stuffing and a spread of cranberry chutney on malted bread.
New for 2023 is the Pigs Under Blankets Sub Roll (£3.50), with sausage and beechwood smoked bacon with gravy mayo and stuffing, on a semolina-topped roll.
Focusing on the filling, the Festive Feast Triple Wrap (£3.35) encases turkey breast and tender sausages with smoked bacon, stuffing, gravy mayo and a spread of cranberry chutney in a tortilla wrap.
For those who love a classic but want it on-the-go, the Prawn Cocktail Sandwich (£3.00) has succulent prawns with a seasoned cocktail sauce on oatmeal bread.
Shoppers don’t have to wait post-Christmas to enjoy a Boxing Day Sandwich (£2.50), Asda’s offering has turkey breast and oak smoked ham with a spoonful of creamy coleslaw and balsamic onion chutney on white bread.
The vegetarian option is Brie and Cranberry (£2.50), a French Brie with a seasonal spoonful of cranberry chutney on malted bread.
As part of the meal deal, shoppers can now bag an Asda Mince Pie (£1.50) as a snack – completing the full festive lunch.
Ellie Palmer, Product Development Manager at Asda, says: “In the lead up to the big day, we know that the festive sandwich is a popular staple for our shoppers. So much so, that Asda predicts to sell one million over the festive period.
“This year we’re excited to introduce the Prawn Cocktail Sandwich, Pigs Under Blankets Sub Roll and Turkey and Stuffing Festive Deli Sandwich to make up a seven-strong line.
“Asda can offer an extensive range – from packed, meaty wraps with all the trimmings, to lighter veggie options with a fruity finish.
“With a starting price of £2.50, we’re proud to offer a competitive and quality festive lunch offering.”
Asda’s Christmas sandwiches don’t just stop at the edible kind - the big Christmas sandwich lovers can now decorate their trees with them, too. George’s Glass Sandwich Christmas Bauble, a Special Turkey flavour variation, is available for just £4.00.
