Officially called a tostati melt, the pigs in blankets lunch option is made with British sausages, coffee-cured bacon, mascarpone cheese and cranberry sauce.

We're not sure how many calories are in the sarnie but we do know that it costs £4.35.

For pud, there's a delicious-sounding red velvet bauble cake up for grabs for £3.25 a slice.

The cake has three layers of sponge and is filled and decorated with cream cheese frosting, finished with sparkling ball, chocolate curls and icing sugar.

And for the hot chocolate it's £2.50, £2.90 or £3.20 respectively.
