When it comes to Christmas munch, there are so many to choose from. It doesn’t matter if you’re a lover of sweet things or a lover of savoury. There is a snack out there for you. These are my top picks for Christmas snacks that have dropped through my letterbox in December!
MARS Cake Bars. RRP £1.65
MARS cake bars are uh-may-zing. If you’re into cakey-chocolatey loveliness then these are a must. It’s a mars bar, in a cake. Could it get much betgter than that? These delicious sponge cake bars include layers of chocolate and caramel, incorporating the taste of one of the nation’s favourite confectionery brands, but with a twist. They’re ideal for elevenses or as an after lunch pick me up, they’re great at any time of day – just be careful you don’t eat the whole pack! These cakey treats are available in packs of 5 from Coop, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda & Morrisons.
Chicago Town Deep Dish mini pizza 2 packs. Priced around £1.50-£2
Chicago Town is The Boy’s favourite brand of pizza. We always have plenty of pizza in over the Holidays because sometimes, it’s just nice to shove something tasty in the oven and do nothing! We do have a large supply of their mini pizzas so I can still feed anyone who turns up unexpectedly with a hungry tum. We love all of the Chicago town range but the mini pizzas are best for the holidays.
NibNibs are a brand new British snack made with ingredients from British suppliers and carefully baked in Yorkshire. They’re delicious and perfect for nibbling on this Christmas. We’ve been testing their amazing selection of cheese straws and are pleased to announce how nice they are. They are like ultimate cheese snacks and in my opinion are far nicer than the cheese straws I’ve tried from other brands. They’re really cheesey too which is good. Like Wotsits but without the luminous orange coating that seems to stick to your fingers all day. They’re baked too which makes for even more loveliness. I like knowing that the things I’m eating are good for me! NibNibs are stocked in loads of local farm and produce shops up and down the UK but if you want to see them stocked at your local supermarket. Just ask!

Lily O’Brien’s Petit Indulgence Star £7.00
Lily O’Brien’s are quite possibly one of my favourite chocolates. This divine little star is perfect for Christmas. 10 little chocolates in 6 wonderful flavours make for a great gift, or a fab little treat after you’ve wrapped all the presents. I can’t pick a favourite from inside the box because I loved them all. So much so that even Misteright & The Boy dipped out when I scoffed the lot whilst watching a movie. (Ssssh, don’t tell anyone, they don’t know I had them so I didn’t have to share!) They would make a great secret Santa gift or an excellent stocking filler for your favourite chocoholic.
Amoy Malaysian Laksa Easy Meal Kit
It says on the box to just add prawns but it works really well with leftover turkey so it had to get a mention. I’m not usually keen on Malaysian food. I’m not a huge fan of coconut but this laksa kit tasted good. It’s easy to prepare and takes very little effort. The kit comes with all the things you need to make a whole meal and it fed Misteright and I very well. It’s not too spicy or rich which means it’s great for a proper meal after the Christmas pig out!
Seasoned Pioneers Mulled Cider Spice Mix £1.95
At this time of year, the mulling spices come out in force. It’s no secret that I’m a cider kind of girl so this spice kit was great for me. I didn’t drink it all to myself though, I did share. The mix contains enough spice to make 12-15 servings, I’d say it was closer to 8 because we like to do things BIG at Chrimbletide so make sure you have the biggest mug you can hold with your gloves on! The wonderful mix of cinnamon, orange, cloves, all spice & star anise mixed very well with Magners. I won a couple of crates a while back and I have to admit that I prefer a nice cloudy cider. I was rather impressed with the final result. Yummy, cidery, Christmassy warmth in a mug. Brilliant!
