Christmas food is another reason to get excited for the impending festive season. Food shopping is proving a great temptation at the moment; with so many mouthwatering, seasonal delights on offer currently, it really would be rude not to indulge… or at least recommend some treats for either yourself or to gift to others!
We love Haribo and what a fabulous treat when you need a break from all the Christmas chocolate on offer. The range includes Christmas related sweets in the form of Giant trees which are squidgy and very moreish – perfect for children… and adults too! The Haribo tub contains 28 packs which is fantastic to have if you are expecting family and friends with children… or perfect if you are planning to make your own advent calendar, with a few spares to enjoy too!
The Haribo range is available from retailers such as Tesco, Sainsburys, Asda and the Coop.

I am a huge fan of Stag Bakeries as their product range is especially awesome for Christmas. The straws are some of my favourite products; each bite of the crispy outer layer brings a smile to your face, but be warned, you cannot just have one! The cheese straws are perfect alongside dips, although I do have a Camembert lined up for dipping the sticks into on Christmas Day. The fruit cake is beautifully presented and the perfect accompaniment for a cheese selection. Stag have a wonderful selection of crackers too, the list is endless really so head on over to their site to check out all their amazing products! The range is available to buy from Marks & Spencer.
