High street chain Itsu have taken the festive lunch break up a level with the release of a new gyoza packed with all the elements of a traditional turkey dinner.
The arrival of Christmas sandwiches across the high street that marks the start of festive season - but there's a new take on the classic British fare.
Itsu have taken all the best bits of a turkey dinner and popped it inside a very festive red gyoza.
The new ‘Christmas cracker gyoza’ is filled with turkey, pork, bacon, sage and cranberry, and its red colour comes from a special beetroot-coloured dumpling.
If you're trying to save your yuletide bingeing for December 25, at 302 calories they’re the perfect lighter lunch or mid-afternoon snack.
Priced at £4.29. Itsu bosses are hoping that they will be a welcome break from heavy festive foods and one too many stodgy Christmas sandwiches.
We recently tried some of the chain's cook-at-home gyoza and bao buns if you need a Japanese dumpling fix in under a minute.
By the time Christmas Day rolls around, we will probably be as jolly and round-cheeked as Santa himself!
