It’s the most wonderful time of the year… I love being on the Earl of Sandwich email list. Not only do you get a free sandwich for your birthday month (which I just redeemed!) but you also get emails letting you know about seasonal specials.
When this one recently arrived, I got pretty excited!
Holiday eats have descended upon Earl of Sandwiches across the country, and I headed into our local Disneyland store to check ’em out! Note that these are also available at the Walt Disney World Earl of Sandwich!
Holiday Turkey Sandwich
We all know that the Holiday Turkey Sandwich is here to stay as it became a permanent menu item last year. And even though it’s always there, I still get super excited whenever I get a chance to have one.
Piled high with turkey, stuffing, gravy & cranberry sauce, this sandwich is comfort food at its best. A hand held Thanksgiving meal, the Holiday Turkey Sandwich is toasted to perfection and really can not be beat.
Holiday Ham Sandwich
New to the holiday sandwich family this year is the Holiday Ham Sandwich.
With heaps of ham, fresh pineapple rings & a holiday apple glaze type sauce, this sandwich is sure to be a huge hit. Served warm and toasted just like all of its Earl relatives, the flavors in this new sandwich really pop.
In my opinion, you can’t really go wrong with a pineapple/ham partnership.
Peppermint Brownies have also made a comeback. They taste just as great as they did when they made their debut last year. Chocolate goodness sprinkled with peppermint; they’ll make you quickly realize that a visit from Santa is just around the corner!
Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes
Not quite ready for a visit from Santa? Then grab one of these Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes and indulge in the flavors of Fall. As a lover of all things pumpkin, this is the item I was most excited to try.
What I loved about this cupcake is that it reminded me of a small homemade cupcake. It wasn’t a big frou frou fancy cupcake, just a little treat with lots of flavor.
The cake itself was not skimpy on the pumpkin flavor. It had just enough holiday spice, but much heavier on the pumpkin side. The cream cheese frosting is dolloped on top and there’s a little frosting surprise on the inside, too! I loved this cupcake.
The Turkey Holiday Sandwich is here to stay, but its new holiday friends will only be around for a limited time. So, the next time you visit the Earl of Sandwich, consider trying something new! You won’t be disappointed.
Overall, I absolutely love the transition from fall to winter eats. The holiday sandwiches are amazingly delicious. And if Earl sells it, I’ll buy it. I’ve never had a bad experience at Earl of Sandwich and I appreciate the fact that you can get a great meal at an affordable price.
A little hint: if you’ve got an Auto Club Card, bring it to the Disneyland location! You get the best discount with it; 15%, while your Annual Pass only gets you 10%.
Do you plan on heading to Earl of Sandwich to sample their holiday eats? Which item are you most excited to try?
