It’s November, and for the good people of the UK that can only mean one thing – Christmas sandwiches, preferably as part of a meal deal.

For those less familiar with the British Christmas sandwich, here’s a rundown: supermarkets and coffee shops all across the country take ingredients that are loosely associated with Christmas dinner, put them between two slices of bread and whack a bauble on the packaging. If said sandwich is part of a meal deal, you then pair it with a drink and a snack and prepare for unforgiving judgement should you post the combination on your Instagram.

Honestly, it’s all part of the festive fun.

To make things a little easier for those looking for a vegan Christmas sandwich, here are five places you can grab a wonderful vegan option this year.
