Morrisons has released a new Christmas sandwich which incorporates the taste of a mince pie.

The supermarket giant’s latest festive offering combines a filling of creamy cheddar cheese and Wensleydale with a mice pie chutney, contained with a fruity panettone style bap.

The sandwich, available from today, Monday 28 October, to Tuesday 24 December, costs £3 in-store at Morrisons. It is also available as part of the retailer’s regular meal deal, which includes all Food to Go mains, snacks and drinks for £3.50.

Richard Jones, Food to Go Buyer at Morrisons, said in a statement: “We’ve upped our Christmas sarnie game this year to offer something completely new for customers."

While veggies may delight over the meat-free option, the jury is still out over whether the dessert-themed festive sarnie will be a hit – or if the prospect of having a sweet treat inspired sandwich is just too bonkers.
