Pret Christmas: Pret A Manger Christmas menu is back for 2023 - full list of Christmas sandwiches available
Pret A Manger has announced their Christmas 2023 sandwiches, drinks and sweet treats - here’s the full menu and when you can buy
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas; the annual Christmas adverts have been released, the Coca-Cola truck tour has been confirmed, the Christmas markets are being set up and even Royal Mail has announced its festive stamps range.
So, that means it’s time for some festive feasting. Following on from other high street giants, like Costa who have already announced their Christmas menu, Pret A Manger have announced that their much-anticipated festive menu is back - and it features beloved classics and exciting new additions.
So, exactly what’s on the menu, and when and where can you buy the range of sandwiches, drinks and sweet treats? Here’s what you need to know.
Pret Christmas menu 2023 - sandwiches
Pret is once again creating dishes that have been devoured by customers in the past, such as the Christmas Lunch Sandwich and the Christmas Lunch Baguette, each made fresh every single day in shop kitchens by Pret chefs. Famous for the much-loved crunch of the crispy onions, both include generous servings of British turkey, port and orange cranberry sauce, herby pork stuffing, spinach leaves and are finished with a dab of mayonnaise.
For those who prefer a plant-based option, the Nut Roast Sandwich is also making a comeback with its filling of roasted herby butternut squash, rocket and Christmas pesto made with chestnuts, pine nuts & rosemary, finished with Pret’s vegan sage mayo, caramelised pecans, complete with Pret’s famous crispy onions.
A total of 50p from the sale of Pret’s most popular Christmas items - Christmas Lunch Sandwich and Nut Roast sandwich - will be donated directly to The Pret Foundation, which is committed to helping break the cycle of homelessness, hunger, and poverty.
In addition to these returning highlights, Pret is also introducing new festive menu innovations, celebrating classic Christmas flavours. Love them or hate them, Brussels sprouts make an appearance in the Ham Hock and Festive Sprouts Macaroni Cheese - a Pret spin on a festive classic sure to delight both sprout lovers and sceptics alike with its rich flavours of pulled ham hock, Italian matured cheese, béchamel sauce with Tubetti Rigati pasta, and, yes, Brussels sprouts.
It also wouldn’t be Christmas without a festive seafood starter, so this year Pret presents its new Salmon, Crayfish and Lemon Mayo Rye Roll - a delicious, seasonal recipe that combines wild crayfish and Scottish smoked salmon with lemon mayonnaise, topped with cucumber slices, a dab of butter, rocket, and dill, all served in its barley and rye roll.
For offices looking to treat their staff in the run-up to Christmas or those planning a lunchtime get-together with friends, Pret's Christmas sandwiches and baguettes can also be purchased as delicious platters, so you can share the festive food joy with even more people.
Pret Christmas menu 2023 - crispy onions
The secret to the popularity of Pret’s Christmas sandwiches lies in the crispy onions, according to the brand, which are made fresh daily in Pret kitchens by their chefs. So, new for 2023, Pret fans can enjoy a special treat: a pocket-sized tin of Pret’s renowned crispy onions. This will allow everyone to sprinkle a touch of Pret magic onto any dish, Christmas themed or not, anywhere and at any time. Available for free in limited quantities via Pret’s Shopify channel.
Pret Christmas menu 2023 - drinks
No festive menu is complete without new seasonal barista-made drinks and this year customers can indulge in the new Merry Berry Hot Chocolate, featuring raspberry syrup topped with whipped cream and dried raspberry crumbs. Alternatively, they can enjoy a decadent Salted Caramel Latte, topped with whipped cream and salted caramel pieces. Both new drinks join the customer-favourite, Gingerbread Latte. All festive drinks are included in Club Pret's subscription, which allows for five barista-made drinks a day, with the first month at half price for new subscribers (£15).
Pret Christmas menu 2023 - sweet treats
It wouldn’t be Christmas, of course, without the addition of new festive sweet treats. Pret has three new additions for customers to try, starting with the Coffee Caramel Slice, layering sweet caramel with Pret’s 100% organic coffee and white chocolate on a dark chocolate shortbread base. Alongside it is the brand new Festive Florentine Slice, which sees mincemeat on a crumbly shortcake base topped with fresh flaked almonds. It doesn’t stop there, as this year sees the return of Pret’s Christmas Tiffin, Mince Pie and Melvin the Melting Snowman Gingerbread Cookie, alongside the new Chocolate S’mores Cookie, a freshly baked chocolate cookie with melted marshmallows and generous milk chocolate chunks.
