Bought a few bits to stash away in the wardrobe ..... left them in the hallway for mere seconds whilst I nipped back out to car. Greedy feckers have ripped them open and sharing them 😡😡

Sorry YABU to buy Christmas treats this early. They would get eaten in our house as would just be thought of as a special treat to have now.

Rookie mistake on your part op. It's never too early for Christmas chocolate/chocolate in general

I had to stop buying Christmas treats early as they just go in a week. Because I have no self control blush

What are Festive Friends?

I don't reall give Christmas any thought till we get the eldests birthday out of the way at the end of October. It would be nice to be more organised but the budget means waiting...

I've eaten 1.5 boxes of festive friends so far 😋

I've been eating them throughout the year. They're my favourite so I buy loads when they are reduced after Christmas or when they pop up in home bargains or similar.

My DS (nearly 18) isn't quite as feral though he did get wired into the Hallowe'en sweets.

"Says Family Bag , I'm your fahhhhhhmmly" he says in a Phil Mitchel voice .

"They were in the Hallowe'en aisle in Tesco , they're ToT sweets"

"But I wasn't at Tesco, so I didn't know that" he munches down another Crunchie bar

thlwink <sigh>

I love Festive Friends so no...I don't blame them.

To whoever asked what Festive Friends are, they're Christmas themed animal biscuits mmmm

Last year I started eating mini-eggs on boxing day.

AND I'm proud of it.

This thread makes me despair of civilisation and our children's future. I am going to sit in a darkened room with a double pack of Tunnock wafers until I feel better. chocolate

Oh please, I'm on my 3rd packet of mini stollen this year and we've got mince pie ice cream for pudding after Sunday lunch tomorrow.

You made the mistake of bringing it in when others were around.
You have to think of it as a ninja mission to get it from the car to the hiding place. Good luck next time grin
