I am luckily enough to live close to most of the big four supermarkets so can pick and chose which party food to buy.

Also have Lidl and Aldi not far away.

What are the best bits of all the party food ranges?

Depends what you mean by party food.

We had some delicious breadcrumbed garlic mushrooms with garlic mayo from M&S the other day.... but they wouldn't be so good if they were part of a buffet people might be dipping in and out of for a few hours.

Got some mini pizzas from Iceland a few weeks back that were quite nice

We had some nice bits from Iceland last year - their Indian banquets are usually pretty good.

I like the light garlic bread from aldi. It available all year and it is great.

I would go to marks for the rest. Can I join you fgrin

I've just polished off some Asda duck and hosin spring rolls, £2 for 18, they were delicious.

Oh I tried the prawn toast from Iceland the other day and they were really nice.

I can recommend Bibbity bobbity prawns (or some such thing) and duck spring rolls from Iceland at £1 a bag. We got them last minute for DS's birthday tea and they went down a storm.

Oh bugger, I'm hungry now grin

Sainsbury's duck spring rolls are lovely.

Tescos party food is all BOGOF at the moment and they have some lovely bits. I can also vouch for the duck spring rolls from Iceland. Chocolate cherry cups are yummy too x

Oops blush

too much red wine obviously

We just had a selection of Sainsbury Christmas snacks, the guests had enjoyed it, especially the coconut prawns fans the prawns in spring roll batter. They sell them 2 for 5 pounds, but often reduce to 99p at the end of the day, you can freeze them and just bang in the oven when needed.

EnianShelZman Sun 08-Dec-13 00:36:20

Oups, too much wine and phone do not mix!

SantaRedLegs Sun 08-Dec-13 00:39:42

I would say Asda mozzarella dippers but if everyone finds out about them then there won't be any left for me sad

I luffs them. I have them with sweet chilli sauce. I've just had a huge salad but I now want to go and raid the freezer for them.

Please don't buy them for your buffet. Please grin

Last year I liked those little mini ice cream cones and were useful for dd when she needed a tiny pudding.

HerlockSholmes Sun 08-Dec-13 02:01:51

i love morrissons mini chicken curry samosas from the deli bit. i buy them just to munch for dinner. they are lovely cold so good for a buffet.

in fact anything from morrissons deli is pretty good.

Rosencrantz Sun 08-Dec-13 02:03:10

ASDA's are soooooo good! Spring rolls!

Dolcelatte Sun 08-Dec-13 06:38:23

M & S - fabulous selection (especially the pork cracking and scallops in mint pea puree), and offering 3 for 2 on party food at the moment.

bragmatic Sun 08-Dec-13 07:37:50

big plate of marshmallows. Trust me.

FortyMerryFuckers Sun 08-Dec-13 07:44:30

I love m&s party food,

Jinty64 Sun 08-Dec-13 07:45:25

Marks and Spencer's party food is awesome but quite expensive. The dc's had some of the Tesco's party food or a buffet tea a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it. I only ate tasted the chilli prawns and they were lovely.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 08-Dec-13 07:50:41

My two nicest things are bacon wrapped !
Bacon wrapped cheese and bacon wrapped prawns from M&S .

DeathByLaundry Sun 08-Dec-13 07:51:34

Tesco do some lovely olives and cream cheese stuffed peppers. Very tasty nibbles.

I also got some orange stickered prawny things from the co-op recently but they're in the freezer. I'll report back if I cave and munch them grin

I always like the stuffed jalapeno peppers and both Sainsbury's and Tesco do them. Have seen the Tesco Finest party food range which is 3 for 2 and I think I might go with that this year.

M&S. I have bought TWELVE boxes of party food (we have 3 stages of family coming, not just for me grin).

The scallops come in the shell on pea puree so will do for a starter. But there are other things that would be great for a buffet eg mini pies, mini beef wellingtons, chicken lollipops etc.

The crucial thing is I saved £27 with the offer. I may have spent £10m, but I SAVED £27 wink.
