I’m off to M&S this afternoon. What Christmas treats should I buy from the food hall? I’m looking for some inspiration.
So far on my list I have the tin of very merry munch, some Colin hot choc stirrers, cheeses although I don’t know which ones.

So can anyone recommend what’s good to buy. I don’t need things for actual Christmas dinner, I’m just stocking up on some snacks and treats.

We had some of the party food last weekend while we decorated the tree. The little chicken tikka naans, mini burgers and duck rolls were all divine.

I love their tins of chocolate Belgian biscuits
Their florentines are the best
Bombay mix
That chilli rice crackers
Cornish crunch cheddar
Buy yourself the custard choux buns for a treat after your excursion

Christmas shortbread tin.
The Prosecco in the gold bottle.
Sausage rolls.

So glad you mentioned that! I bought a couple of the magnums for our Christmas drinks party next weekend. Such a bargain for £20 so I’m glad they taste nice!

Nacho cheese and pizza dips are the best!

EwwSprouts Sat 04-Dec-21 15:35:56

Let it sloe fizz (only 4%)
Manchego & chilli crisps - not very hot but tasty
Onion & garlic dip
Gruyere if you like a hard, nutty cheese. They usually have two, look for the more expensive one.

How has no one mentioned salted caramel pinecones!?

The pack of 4 cheeses with:

Red Leicester with chilli
Wensleydale with cranberry
Cheddar with balsamic onion
Wensleydale with brandy soaked fruit.

Our pack didn't last till Christmas grin

Their Irish cream chocolates are amazing. Also love their chocolate biscuit selection, comes in a blue box. Cheese taster crisps. Snowglobe gin liquer ...

Except for their crisps which I'm not a fan of, everything is absolutely delicious! If you download the sparks app there's £5 off £40 spend if you're new. The katsu chicken strips, vegan coconut and chocolate liquer, yum nuts (although have to be eaten fresh so won't save), any of their boxes of biscuits.

Party food is amazing and lots of it can frozen. On 4 for 3 aswell

We've just had the baked camembert with sweet chilli glaze for dinner

We do our weekly shop in m and s so basically can recommend the whole shop!

The satsumas with leaves on in a box are lovely for this time of year

They do a square wicker basket with nuts in and a.nutcracker for £5 we get this every year

The frozen pastries.eg pain au choc are great

The deli items on 3 for £7 are great for lunches

Wine wise we like the dog on the tuckerbox pinot grigio

Salt and pepper cashew nuts

Like I said we do our weekly shop there!
