Christmas isn’t the same without copious amounts of good food and drink, and what better place to indulge than M&S? Today, the retailer confirmed the launch of their Christmas collection.
Gin lovers are going to love this one, because M&S have revealed their first festive treat is a Clementine Gin Liqueur Snow Globe, and we love it already!
The news was shared to Instagram, with many fans keen to try the festive tipple.
One said: ‘oh my goodness look at this!!! 😍😍😍’; while another wrote: ‘I’m already on to procuring us a bottle 💪’.
A third added: ‘This looks delicious!’
M&S have revealed their 2019 Christmas collection will feature over 170 delicious creations, which promise to make your Christmas ‘stress-free’.
They’ve even launched their first ever vegan Christmas dinner, that’s fully plant-based.
The retailer say it features ‘a mouth-watering plant protein centre piece, vegetables, roast potatoes, gravy, stuffing and even ‘no pigs in duvets’.
A new dessert for 2019 is their Sticky Toffee Trifle, which combines ‘two all-time family favourite desserts’. This unique trifle comes with the flavours and crunch of a decadent sticky toffee pudding.
Another trifle-based dessert is Trifle Granola, featuring ‘vanilla custard flavoured baked oats and decadent melt in the mouth white chocolate, fruity strawberry jelly pieces, creamy yoghurt coated cornflakes, zingy freeze-dried raspberries, and the star of the show – mini sponge cake pieces.’
And of course, the Christmas classic Yule Log will be available for chocoholics everywhere. We already want a piece!
As much as we love dessert, we also love the savoury treats that come with the festive season. M&S have us well and truly covered here, and shoppers will be delighted to know that they’ve brought back their famous Spanish Pigs in Blankets.
M&S’ version of the classic Christmas treat uses ‘specialist Spanish pancetta around chorizo sausage with a blossom honey glaze’.
Apparently they sell 6.5 million of them in the Christmas season, so you know they’re good!
For the cheese lover in your life, you can treat them to the Cornish Cheese Advent Calendar, giving them the chance to indulge in their favourite food up until Christmas.
Another cheesy dish is the Brie En Croute, which M&S have described as ‘the ultimate tear and share’. Or not share, if it’s as good as it looks.
That’s just a taste of what’s on offer, as you can find much more in-store from the 25th September. Hopefully all this is enough to whet your appetite for now, though!
