Last week we shared the first images of Waitrose’s 2021 Christmas food range (there was a lot of melted cheese and some breaded olives which looked kinda wrong but we’re still desperate to get our hands on them). And this week we’re excited to bring you…DUN DUN DUN… Marks & Spencer’s festive culinary offering.
The foodies at M&S haven’t released too many details on what to expect just yet but they have shared a handful of sneak peeks via their social media accounts including their Light Up Snow Globe Gin Liqueurs which come in three flavours.
Their Clementine Gin Liquer sold out quickly last Christmas, and joining it for 2021 will be Spiced Sugar Plum and Madagascan Vanilla Rum Liqueur which are both brand new flavours. The supermarket has even confirmed that after the success of last year’s bottle, they’ve hugely upped stock numbers so that more of us can get our hands on it this year.
There’s also a light-up chocolate box (obvs) which contains mini snow-dusted milk, dark, white and golden blond chocolate houses set inside a dazzling festive scene. The prettiest sweet treat of a Christmas present if ever we saw one.
And last but not least in the list of Marks & Spencer light-up consumables is the Shortbread Light-Up Houses which sound exactly as their name suggests. There’s three tins to choose from, they cost a fiver each, and make for a great festive ornament once the biscuits have been demolished.
Also new for the 2021 festive range is a collection of six ready-to-drink cocktails which come in boujee bottles. There’s pre-mixed margarita, espresso martini, passion star martini, clover club, golden negroni and aged rum and cacao old fashioned and it’ll set you back £18 for the lot.
And finally, there’s Christmas Pudding Truffles. What’s not to get excited about? For £6 you get 125g worth of bitesize chocolate treats that taste like the traditional festive dessert. Yum.
All of these new launches land in-store this week. It would be rude to not at least sample them before we go ahead and buy them as presents for other people, right?
