A major part of Christmas is the food but have you ever thought about trying something different? There are so many options available out there, suitable for dietary requirements but also just for a change! I wanted to give you a brief overview of some of the foods that supermarkets are offering this year that may make your Christmas a little different.

Chocolate, sweets and snacks

If you’re a fan of Heroes but have a favourite in mind that you go for every time? You can now buy pouches of Dairy Milk Chunks, Dairy Milk Wholenut, Dairy Milk Classics and Cadbury Crunchie Bits.

You can also buy Cadbury Jingly Bells and Little Robins. Little pouches for roughly £1 each. They come in milk, white, hazelnut creme and Daim flavour.

If you’re a fan of Ferrero Rocher, you may like Cadbury’s new Puds. Very similar to Ferrero Rocher, these are milk chocolate and hazelnut truffles but with the joy of Cadbury chocolate!

Terry’s Chocolate Orange is always a go-to in many households at Christmas time, but this year they’ve released an Exploding Candy Chocolate Orange as well as Terry’s Chocolate Orange Truffles.

If you’re a fan of Pretzels, Tesco have a range available. They do Sweet & Salty, Giant and Maple Bacon flavoured all for £1.25 with a clubcard.

If you fancy something completely new, Tesco also have a range of flavoured nuts. They have a Pigs in Blankets flavour, Boxing Day Curry flavour and Salted Caramel.

Bakery and mince pies

There are so many variations of mince pies now available! ASDA have their Extra Special Apple & Pecan Crumble Mince Pies, Extra Special Luxury Sloe Gin Mince Pies and Extra Special Irish Cream Liqueur Mince Pies. They also have numerous plant based and free from mince pies available too!

Tesco currently have their Tesco Finest Salted Caramel Crumble Topped Mince Pies and their Tesco Finest Chocolate Orange Crumble Topped Mince Pies.

Aldi have a range too, including their Specially Selected Frangipane Mince Pies, Specially Selected Millionaire Mince Pies and their Specially Selected Salted Caramel and Rum Mince Pies.

If you are a fan of Stollen, Baker Street have a range of stollen-based products available in Tesco. They have normal standard Stollen Bites, Apple Stollen Bites and Stollen Cookies.

Party food

Most supermarkets are offering excellent deals on party food. Iceland in particular are offering the amazing deal of 3 for £5. Here you can get Fish and Chip Cones, Chicken Christmas Trees, Cheddar Cheese Popcorn Bites, Mini Deep Dish Pizzas (Margarita, Pepperoni), Southern Fried Cauliflower Popcorn as well as many more options!

For sweet party food, check out Aldi. Their range is also extensive and very cheep again. For Caramel Churros, Salted Caramel Profiteroles, Chocolate Orange Profiteroles and Mini Ice Cream Cones.

If you’re a fan of cheese fondue or camembert, you may be keen on Asda’s Garlic and Herb Wreath with Camembert – which is an excellent choice for a gathering!
