M&S food - what should I buy?
43

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.

Been in today, was heaving, no social distancing, so pick up some snacks, chicken liver parfait, a slice of three meat terrine and a bloody gorgeous burrito to split open drizzle with pesto and have yummy bits to dip in.

Sorry I posted before realising you’d already been! However if you’re back in or for anyone else looking, try their ‘best ever’ trifle like I said and meant to add their Thai sweet chilli crisps. Yum

Absolutely love the reduced fat Honey Roast Ham crisps ( full fat ones not ridged and too hard), the sliced Jarlsberg cheese Blackcurrant Sundaes and Coffee and Walnut cake.

I went into a big M&S today and was very disappointed at the party food/xmas food offering. Hardly anything there compared to normal :(

I've just been in M&S food to order. Looking for a dressed salmon ( as per previous experience) to order for a party on NYE.

It seems they don't do their food to order service anymore. Now it's through Ocado ( who don't deliver to my postcode) grrrr..

Anyone got any bright ideas?

The mini kievs are gluten free as well!

I have purchased the chocolate light up village. Very excited to surprise my daughter with it.

Another vote for the honey roasted cashews. They might as well label them as crack cocaine.

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!
