M&S will, as usual, bring their best offering to the Christmas table with a plethora of classics hitting shelves in time for Christmas. The classic British chain has partnered with Ocado to create a range of over 60 new lines, including vegetarian and vegan friendly options.
M&S are known for their iconic party food – at the stops have been pulled out again for the 2020 offering, with a whole new range of new products as well as classic favourites redesigned for the Christmas season.
Christmas this year is likely to look very different to Christmas any other year – with coronavirus creeping back into full view, it’s not unlikely that some or all of us could be locked down when the day comes.
The full range is available to view online now, including online exclusives for those booking a collection slot or delivery this year.
April Preston, Director of product development said: “This year, customers have been telling us they want to embrace the spirit of Christmas more than ever.
“We won’t want to confine Christmas to one day, we’ll be looking to extend the festive season and turn it into a series of moments, celebrating with loved ones in whatever way we can.
“Christmas isn’t a time our customers want to hold back, and food will continue to play a central part in their celebrations.
“Some of the festivities may look a bit different, some might even be virtual, but they will be more special than ever as we treat, thank, celebrate and unite with friends and family.”
The range includes everything from starters, party snacks, mains and desserts.
If you’re looking for minimal effort, you can get a Perfect Turkey Crown for 6-8 people for £50, which comes pre-basted, pre-stuffed and pre-wrapped in bacon, ready to go in the oven.
If you fancy something different, you can get Slow-cooked Turkey legs for four people for £12.
For the vegetarians, M&S are offering a Mushroom and Camembert Pie, £18, with mushroom and roast parsnip in a cheese sauce encased in flaky pastry.
The knock-out Christmas offering on the dessert menu is the famous Colin the Caterpillar cake – but redesigned for the festive season.
