The battle of the Christmas sandwiches: exclusive ratings from The Bunch Team


It’s the most wonderful time of the year! There are many things to be happy about in December - parties, presents, seeing family, but most importantly… Christmas sandwiches! The Christmas sandwich market is more competitive than ever, meaning lunchtimes at The Bunch are filled with great debate over which store is selling the best in 2021. So, we decided to put together an official rating list for you:


1. Sainsbury’s - Pigs Under Blankets Sandwich 

What our expert tasters had to say: “Serious sausagey goodness but lacking in content - sparse filling would be an understatement”

Rating: 2/5

Price: £2.50


2. Tesco - Turkey & Trimmings Sandwich 

What our expert tasters had to say: “Festive in taste but slightly soggy - one for the sauce lovers”

Rating: 3/5

Price: £2.80


3. Co-op - “Boxing Day Feast” Sandwich 

What our expert tasters had to say: “White bread and winter slaw letting CO-OP down here with the smoked ham being the only saving grace”

4. Pret - “Christmas Lunch” Sandwich 

What our expert tasters had to say: “Balance and poise in a sandwich - crispy onions, are you crazy?!”

5. Aldi -  Turkey With Pigs Under Blankets


What our expert tasters had to say: “Butter basted Turkey bringing the vibes. The thiccness of this sandwich is to be admired”.

So there you have it, ratings from the top Christmas sandwich tasters in the whole of Bristol! Pret / Aldi tied for first but if you're looking to save some pennies this Christmas, we recommend you get to your local Aldi pronto!
