Philpotts introduces Christmas range

Yorkshire pudding wrap

Philpotts has launched a new range for Christmas, with vegan options

The range, which includes a festive selection of hot drinks, wraps and sandwiches, will be available at all stores but Philpotts Chester.

The much-anticipated Yorkshire pudding wrap with traditional Christmas dinner filling is the highlight of the range.

The range has been developed internally by A.F. Blakemore food solutions & retail proposition director Nikki Rogers, together with A.F. Blakemore Group Trading and the Philpotts team at Blakemore Retail.

For the first time Philpotts will also be serving up hot and cold vegan sandwich options in its festive line-up, comprising sage and onion stuffing, crispy onions and roasted vegetables (hot), and beetroot houmous, falafel and vegan mayonnaise (cold).

There has also been collaboration across the Blakemore Group with the introduction of Eat 17’s highly acclaimed bacon jam to the menu.

Rogers said the new seasonal range at Philpotts marks the first step in a full revamp and review across their entire menu.

“We are incredibly proud of all the new lines, but we’re particularly excited about the amazing vegan lines that will be on offer for the first time.”

A.F. Blakemore acquired the Philpotts chain of prepared-food stores from Patisserie Valerie in February, and now operates 21 stores across England, Scotland and Wales.
