This week’s cold front is all the proof we need that we are well on our way to Christmas.
And while Christmas day is all good for opening presents, spending time with the family and eating copious amounts of meat/cheese/potatoes/cake (basically anything we can get our hands on), it’s the run up to Christmas that sometimes provides us with the best gastronomic pleasures.
There’s already a host of weird and wonderful new releases designed to test our limits on how far we’re willing to stretch our tastebuds to get into the Christmas spirit.
Marks and Spencer’s red velvet curd (opens in new tab) comes to mind, as well as Iceland’s new Christmas tree flavours crisps (opens in new tab) and of course, Sainsbury’s pigs in blankets and brussel sprout teas (opens in new tab).
But on the other side of that there’s always the luxuriously indulgent, like B&M’s cake-flavoured gins (opens in new tab), Costa‘s pigs in blankets mac and cheese (opens in new tab) and Aldi’s foot-long pigs in blankets (opens in new tab) and six-litre prosecco bottles (opens in new tab).
Say hello to the Oreo Christmas Tin.

Inside you’ll find four packets of Oreo Original biscuits, two packets of Golden Oreo biscuits and one packet of Oreo Choco Crème biscuits.
The tin is available in Tesco for £5, or you can head over to Morrisions to get it for a reduced £4, though the tin design may vary.
Tesco has invested a lot into their Christmas foods this year, even coming up with a whole new idea for pigs in blankets.
As well as classic pigs in blankets, they are selling pigs in duvets. Their pigs in duvets wreath is made up of pigs in blankets that a wrapped in crispy pastry, ie. a duvet.
