M&S' New Festive Range Features A Clementine Gin Liqueur Snow Globe And A Christmapolitan
M&S has unveiled its Christmas menu for 2019 - and it's packed with over 170 new mouth-watering dishes.
The British chain is known for its this-can't-be-from-a-supermarket foods year-round, so you can imagine how good the lineup for the festive season is looking.
New dishes include the 'Perfect Turkey' (which promises to banish turkey terror), a complete vegan Christmas meal, and the new Biggest Ever Éclair.
There's also a super-sized version of the brand's Brie en Croute (£10) which is sold all year round; the delicious cheesy starter comes with a flaky pastry crust for dipping and loading with gooey cheese.
M&S is also adding tons of amazing new party foods to its Xmas offering - good job as customers buy over seven million packs per year.
This year's hot new addition is posh crumpets: Porcini &Truffle Crumpets and Pulled Ham Hock & Rarebit Crumpets (£7), which are ready to go with just seven minutes in the oven.
For a snack table pleaser there's also festive handcrafted sausage rolls with 'Ho Ho Ho' pastry work (£5).
This year, M&S are promising to banish 'turkey terror' after research found customers worry about over 20 things in relation to their Christmas turkey.
Instead, the foodies have created the Perfect Turkey (£60), seasoned, basted, and prepped to perfection. All you have to do is pop in the over for two hours.
Other dinner plate extras include Spanish Pigs in Blankets, a twist on the classic using specialist Spanish pancetta around chorizo sausage with a blossom honey glaze.
M&S has also added condiments such as four new truffle products including an amazing new Truffle Ketchup thanks to the success of Truffle Mayo last year!
Vegans will be happy to learn about M&S' new first completely vegan Christmas dinner with a mouth-watering plant protein centre piece, vegetables, roast potatoes, gravy, stuffing and even 'no pigs in duvets' (£3.50). Ingenious!
And it isn't just the favourites that are making our mouths water this year: desserts include incredible cakes, Yule logs and the brand's Biggest Ever Éclair (£10).
We're particularly excited for the Sticky Toffee Trifle (£10) with layers of rich toffee sauce, sticky toffee sponge, custard and fresh whipped cream. *Dribbles.*
There's also some delectable new tipples including a Clementine Gin Liqueur Snow Globe (£15), which is sure to be an alcohol shelf centrepiece.
The festive clementine flavoured gin complete with edible 23 carat gold leaf pieces, which create a snow globe effect when the bottle is turned upside down. Magic.
There's also the Christmapolitan (£10): a seasonal take on the cocktail favourite with festive spice. This sounds right up our street.
Selected M&S Food Christmas lines launch from September 25th in stores across the UK.
