I am currently tucking in to some cheese savouries at work. I know they are available year-round, but I don't tend to eat them the rest of the time. Once I get into festive mode... Straight to the savouries. santa So I am feeling very festive right now.

What is everyone's favourite Christmasssy snack? Or which food do you only tend to eat around Christmas time?

Matchmakers, M&S cherry liquers, satsumas, nuts, nougat.
Yum, can't wait!

Pigs in blankets! All m&s 'party' food, love it!!

Dhs are cheeselets, mine's probably cashews. We only buy them at Christmas.

Pringles. Never eat them at any other time of the year,but have to have a few tubes for Christmas! Cocoa pops are another, we only ever had them at Christmas when we were children!

Twiglets. Not even sure if you can buy them year round as I only eat them in December.

DS says Brie. I favour after eights and good whiskey.

FlankShaftMcWap Thu 26-Nov-15 20:38:39

As many brie, bacon and cranberry panini as I can cram into December. Baked camembert with toasted ciabatta. Blue cheese spread with wholegrain crackers. My mouth is watering right now! I'm a cheese girl evidently blush

Cheesy footballs, chocolate orange and stollen thickly spread with butter. Preferably on the same plate and washed down with a gigantic glass of Chablis

Mince pies and Terrys chocolate orange yum yum

Lots of different cheeses with crackers, especially Camembert and Stilton, smoked salmon, mince pies and Irish whiskey cream. I am generally a bit "bah humbug" about Christmas but love the food!

LaurieFairyCake Thu 26-Nov-15 21:02:51

I've already eaten a pack of Stilton and a box of matchmakers

I have to get off them now Til the 20th or my ass will be massive

DP- cheese straws, peanuts with raisins and chocolate, he's also very partial to pigs in blankets

Me- mince pies (bought the first box this week, I'm trying out different brands to get the best one before Christmas), any of the little cadburys Christmas cakes like the mini roll variants, most types of party food!

Matchmakers, Terry's chocolate orange, quality street, mini sausages and hot small frozen sausage rolls grin
