Aside from the joy of giving and all that jazz, Christmas is about stuffing yourself with food until you feel like you’re going to burst, then falling asleep, waking up the next morning and doing it all over again!
With that in mind, here are the foods that always bring me back to festive memories:
1. Orange and Lemon Slices
Yep, those little jelly sweets that you can probably get all year round, but in our house they’re Christmas tradition – as is fighting over the middle bit!
2. Costa hot chocolate
Yes, I’m gutted that the seasonal flavours aren’t as good this year, but a plain old Costa hot chocolate is still a perfect treat on cold days out Christmas shopping.
3. After Eights
I’m not a dark chocolate person in the slightest, but can anyone ever resist an After Eight at this time of year? PS they normally taste better before 8pm.
4. Peppermint everything
Whether its my peppermint Eos balm, or sucking on a candy cane, peppermint is a Christmas staple!
5. Buck’s Fizz!
Now I’m really not big on champagne, or orange juice really for that matter, but you can’t start a Christmas party, or Christmas morning, without a glass of this bubbly stuff!
