Sainsbury’s has launched a star-topped Snow Globe Sandwich as part of its Christmas range. 

The sandwich, priced at £3.50, consists of a soft brioche bun, topped with edible silver stars, filled with butter-basted British turkey breast and beechwood smoked streaky bacon. Brussel sprout slaw, British pork stuffing, mayonnaise and a sweet cranberry & port sauce also feature – all housed in snow globe-shaped packaging.

It is one of five festive ‘by Sainsbury’s’ sandwiches to hit the chillers this month, including one vegetarian option. Others in the range are:

  • Turkey & Pigs Under Blanket Sandwich: British pork Cumberland sausages, smoked British bacon and turkey in soft malted bread - £2.35
  • Turkey Feast Wrap: a soft tortilla with British turkey, sage, onion & apricot stuffing, British pork cocktail sausages, maple-cured bacon and a cranberry & port sauce - £2.35
  • Brie & Cranberry Sandwich: a vegetarian sandwich with brie and cranberry in multigrain bread with peppery rocket and a cranberry and port sauce - £2.20
  • Turkey Feast Sandwich: butter-basted British turkey breast, British pork & chestnut stuffing, maple-cured smoked bacon and a cranberry & port sauce in malted bread - £2.35

Other retailers have also recently unveiled their on-the-go ranges, including Waitrose which added six new lines, including a Spiced King Prawn Cocktail Sandwich and a Christmas Spiced Falafel Flatbread.
