Back in July 2021, Pret launched a special edition festive sandwich to celebrate the end of lockdown after a flood of special requests from fans for the Christmas sarnie. Like us, it’s likely you had mixed feelings about eating stuffing and roast turkey at the height of summer, but it got people talking which was probably the point of that.
Today, at a timelier part of the year with Halloween and Bonfire Night out the way, Pret has launched its full Christmas menu for 2021 which still features plenty of old favourites (hello pigs in blankets hot roll) as well as a handful of new and exclusive festive options.
The news follows the release of Starbucks’ and Costa’s Christmas menus, both of which have already shared their festive offering for this season and include a selection of Christmas coffees, hot chocolates, sandwiches and sweet treats.
But if Pret is your go-to coffee shop of choice, then take a look at what’s new and what’s returning on its Christmas menu for 2021.
When does the Pret Christmas menu launch?
Pret’s Christmas menu 2021 is available in Pret and Veggie Pret stores from Tuesday 9 November until the end of December.
What drinks are on the Pret Christmas menu?
If you’re looking to spruce up your coffee run then be sure to check out Pret’s new festive drinks flavours. There are two brand new additions to its coffee and hot chocolate range, both of which are inspired by Pret’s much-loved sweet treats.
There’s a Love Bar Latte which takes inspiration from Pret’s Love Bar, a crunchy flapjack slice topped with nuts and seeds. The drink version will combine chocolate caramel cookie syrup with a shot of espresso and steamed milk before being topped with whipped cream and caramel sauce.
Next up is its Popcorn Bar Hot Chocolate, a custom drink made with popcorn syrup, hot chocolate, steamed milk and topped with whipped cream and chocolate powder.
Customers can also indulge in its Gingerbread Latte which will be making a return this year.
All drinks will be included in the Pret Coffee Subscription which allows customers to redeem up to five drinks a day for £20 a month.
What food is on the Pret Christmas menu?
There are lots of newbies added to Pret’s food Christmas menu this year, from sweet to savoury options. Fresh on the list is a Turkey and Trimmings Toastie, a Vegan Christmas Flatbread and Christmas Stuffing Mac ‘n’ Cheese. The toastie is stuffed with ham, turkey, herby pork stuffing, caramelised onion chutney and melted cheddar cheese. While, the wholemeal vegan flatbread includes vegan sage mayo, port and orange cranberry sauce, Christmas pesto, roasted herby butternut squash, sweet potato falafel, pickled cabbage and carrot.
Exclusive to Veggie Pret will be a Vegan Festive Pasta Bake made with Christmas pesto, a vegan béchamel sauce and herby roasted butternut squash.
Not forgetting plenty of old favourites that will be making a reappearance again this year. Customers can still get their hands on the Pigs in Blankets Hot Roll for breakfast on the go, as well as the Christmas Lunch sandwich (yes, it’s the same one that launched back in July), the Brie, Pistachio & Cranberry Baguette and the Vegan Christmas Nut Roast.
Joining a list of festive sweets is a new Nutty Salted Caramel Brownie, which sees a rich Belgian chocolate brownie filled with salted caramel sauce and topped with chopped walnuts. There will also be Pret’s Christmas Tiffin and Melvin, the Melting Gingerbread Snowman and a classic Mince Pie which is made to a new recipe this year making it suitable for vegetarians.
