Christmas in Shops 2017 - Supermarket Own Brand Edition

The supermarkets have really upped their game in recent years for own-brand festive products, with some impressive and weird new treats out for the Christmas Season. Below are some I've seen whilst out and about...although there's lots more! For updates of the most recent do check out my Instagram Page.

  1. Thrilled to see so many free from options for Christmassy food, some really lovely treats there! The mince pie fudge also sounds divine, fingers cross they do a free from version some year.....

  2. I've tried the M&S winter berries and prosecco crisps. They're actually not bad and far more tasty than I expected.

  3. I had noticed a lot of cool stuff too. And there is a fairly decent dairy free selection too in my locals!

  4. I had those ASDA orange profiteroles last year they were delicious and great price.

    I swear they were £2 last year, but £1.75 this year despite many other things going up in price. Same size.

  5. The gingerbread tortilla rolls were a fave in our house. Gone too soon. Hope they come back next year
