M&S food - what should I buy?
Filterphobia · 04/12/2021 13:02
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.

Their florentines are the best

The Prosecco in the gold bottle.
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 · 04/12/2021 15:35
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!?

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!
