    Just had the Sainsbury's Christmas turkey and cranberry sandwich and it was vile. Way too much cranberry, which didn't even take like cranberry anyway, more like strawberry jam. The bread was soaked through, like a cummy biscuit and the lettuce was as floppy as a late 1960s 8" disk.

    If there are other bad pre-packed Christmas sandwiches out there, please - in the spirit of the season - warn your fellow gamers of them here.

    Thanks to this heads up I'm sure we'll all be giving them a miss from now on.

    We need to have some parameters / criteria here, in order to ensure consistency.

    What are we ranking these on? Freshness? Crunchiness? Christmasiness? Meat to bread ratio? It's important to be clear about this!

    The one from Pret isn't too bad this year (I'd rank it about 7/10)...

    You'll happily eat from Greggs, but worry about uncovered sugar?

    The holy christmas trinity lunch of super joy in Reading:

    (all eaten as part of the same lunch but not necessarily in this order)

    1. Gregg's festive bake

    2. Pierre's Baguette's "Christmas Special", a mega-filled turkey (sliced), stuffing, sausage, mayo and cranberry on white baguette, fucking yummers

    3. Sweeney Todd's Christmas Pie, puff pastry with lumps of turkey, sausage, stuffing and some other stuff in gravy - heavenly

    But without cranberry, surely it's just a turkey sandwich with nothing Christmassy about it!

    Then again, getting rid of anything red isn't so bad in my eyes ;)

    Sweeney's xmo pie is a thing of beauty, thanks for the reminder. I'll have to pick a couple up next week.

    Do you know what's actually nice? Turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce in a toastie (or breville or whatever you'd like to call it). Never would have believed it if I hadn't tried it. The cranberry sauce makes it surprisingly, adding a bit of much needed moisture. Be warned though, it will burn off the roof of your mouth if you're not careful.

    Make sure you get there early, they seem to sell out almost immediately! Some prick in my office went on a pie run last week (without telling me) and came back with 3 or 4, one for lunch and the rest for the family. I was not best pleased

    I don't understand why you're filling your faces with turkey sandwiches already. Surely you'll be fed up of them by the day after boxing day anyway?

    I had an M&S Christmas Soup today, it was gross. Far too herby.

    I learned all I needed to know about Christmas sandwiches from Friends. Turkey sandwich complete with 'moist maker'. Once you've gone out of your way to make one you'll never go back.

    I had to unwrap it?

    It was turkey, sage and onion, parsnip, potato and pork...but just tasted of half a ton of sage.
    It was kinda like a Greggs festive thing without the pastry.

    Yeah but do you make it yourself? Because if it's that Paxo shit, 2000 years of history says you're a know nothing little nonce.
