Tesco’s Christmas sandwiches includes full ‘three-course dinner’ festive rolls

It may only be October, but it’s already time to talk Christmas sandwiches – especially since Tesco has released its latest creation.

The new addition to Tesco’s Christmas range is based off a Chrismas dinner, though maybe not the one you’re used to seeing.

The new Finest Festive Feast Trio – priced at £3.50 – has three mini Christmas rolls, each with a different filling inspired by a classic Christmas dinner.

To start there’s the Posh Prawn Cocktail – prawns in a boozy Bloody Mary sauce on a soft, oat-topped roll.

The main is the traditional Turkey & Stuffing – British, butter-basted turkey with sweetcure bacon, sage and onion stuffing and cranberry sauce.

All to be polished off with a Chocolate & Cherry dessert – a chocolate roll filled with a smooth cream cheese filling, finished with a port and cherry sauce drizzle.

While the latter may sound a bit odd, it isn’t the first time Tesco has put the chocolate and cherry filled sandwich on the shelves.

In 2015 the sandwich was introduced by the supermarket chain as part of its meal deal – though it was met with mixed reactions at the time.

Take a look at the full Tesco Christmas sandwich range for 2018 below.

Tesco isn’t the first to announce it’s Christmas ranges, with Boots and Marks and Spencer already lining their shelves with Christmas sandwiches and wraps .

It’s not just sandwiches either, with M&S selling a Jaffa Cake cocktail while Iceland had everyone a bit confused with the Christmas tree flavour crisps .
