With less than two months till Christmas, supermarkets have been unveiling their festive food ranges and we must say, there’s a pretty good spread on offer this year.
Earlier this month, both Marks & Spencer and Morrisons released details of the Christmas foods they’ll be selling in the lead up to the big day and not only do their selections look and sound delicious, but they’re great value for money too.
At Morrisons, we’ve been introduced to vegan pigs in blankets, korean jackfruit bao buns, katsu croquettes and free from mince pies. Meanwhile Marks & Spencer will be selling an incredible Woodland Yule Log for just £15, prawn sliders, festive handcrafted sausage rolls, massive turkeys and a Christmas rainbow cake that definitely has our name written all over it.
And if that wasn’t enough, Tesco has now revealed its festive foods range too with a specific focus on alternative pigs in blankets. Much to the delight of two in three Brits (64 per cent) who have named the food as their favourite Christmas trimming, the supermarket will be offering nine different types of pigs in blankets this year.
We’re talking everything from the traditional pigs in blankets to jumbo ones and vegan ones, to chicken ones, stuffing ones, spicy ones and even chocolate varieties. And yes, you’re going to want to try them all. Especially as they’re all priced at £5 or under meaning you won’t have to fork out a fortune to do it.
