Best Christmas sandwiches 2018 from high street retailers including Greggs, Aldi, and Tesco

We tried 21 Christmas sarnies (someone had to do it, right?) and ranked them out of five on appearance, taste and value for money for an overall score out of 15.

Top of the charts was Sainsbury's newest Christmas sandwich, The Big Beef, based on a beef roast dinner, with an actual Yorkshire pudding in the middle and smothered in gravy mayonnaise.

While it's not your classic Christmas sarnie it scored well with our taste testers, bagging an impressive 14 out of 15 points.

It scored top marks for appearance and value for money, only falling short by a point on taste because it's not very festive.

Aldi's bargain £1.99 Specially Selected turkey with pigs under blankets came in second place, scoring five in value for money, but just missing out on its looks and flavour.

The Simply Turkey and Stuffing dish from Boots' didn't fare well, scoring a measly six out of 15, flunking on taste, value and appearance.

Eagle-eyed shoppers have already spotted festive sarnies at Boots, including flavours such as Turkey, Bacon & Stuffing, Parsnip Fritter & Butternut Squash and Pigs Under Blankets.

Iceland has launched crisps which taste like a Christmas TREE – and it could be one of the most controversial flavours ever created.

Move over pigs in blankets, Tesco is launching pigs in duvets and we can't wait to get our hands on the flaky puff pastry treats.
