Add To Cart: The Best Food Finds At Marks & Spencer
You can find Christmas gifts here!
Marks & Spencer's Christmas sales are something¬†to always look forward to because of the huge markdowns and great deals on items. If you don't know your way around Marks & Spencer food aisles when the sale begins this Christmas season, here are some things you should add to your cart:
Dark Chocolate Digestives and Milk Chocolate Digestives
Believe it or not, these digestives are one of the more popular food items you can buy at Marks & Spencer-especially during their Christmas sales where these are sold at discounted prices.
Don't be too skeptical about these digestive cookies as these won't "miraculously improve your digestion." Instead, buy Marks & Spencer's Dark Chocolate Digestives and Milk Chocolate digestives for what they really are: delicious cookies half coated in chocolate.
Plus point: These are vegetarian-friendly chocolate biscuits-as is with¬†a lot of Marks & Spencer items!
Another bestselling biscuit from Marks & Spencer is the Extremely Chocolatey Milk Chocolate Rounds. This biscuit in particular¬†is for serious chocolate fans because it's described to be "more chocolate than biscuit." Unlike the digestives, the cookies are coated all over with a thick layer of melt-in-your-mouth milk chocolate.
The milk chocolate flavor is the most popular one but they also have other flavors you can explore: Extremely Chocolatey Dark Chocolate Rounds and the Extremely Chocolatey White Chocolate Rounds.
8 All Butter Cookies: Pistachio & Almond and Double Belgian Chocolate Chunk
Marks & Spencer has a line of buttery cookies that come in different flavors and each pack has eight pieces (hence the "8" part of the product name).
The most popular ones are the Pistachio & Almond Cookies¬†(P295, the most expensive flavor out of the entire line) and the Double Belgian Chocolate Chunk Cookies (P250). The Pistachio & Almond is the perfect choice if you love crunchy cookies and the premium flavor of pistachios, but if you love Belgian chocolate, the Double Belgian Chocolate Chunk Cookies is the obvious choice.
The line also includes Belgian White Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Belgian Chocolate Chunk & Hazelnut Cookies, Cranberry & Orange Cookies, and Triple Belgian Chocolate Chunk Cookies.
Marks & Spencer's Ginger Snaps are thin and brittle biscuits that have a slightly spicy, warming flavor because¬†of the ginger flavoring.
We know that ginger-flavored cookies are for those with an¬†acquired taste-specifically for those who like anything with ginger-but if you don't have a soft spot for ginger, you should definitely pair these with Marks & Spencer-branded tea (which are pretty good too, by the way!) for a delicious combo you might come to love.
Jaffa cakes are popular biscuit-shaped cakes in the United Kingdom and since Marks & Spencer is a brand that started in the UK, it's a given that they'd have their own version of Jaffa Cakes. The store's Dark Chocolate Jaffa Cakes come in rounded-rectangular flattened golden sponge cakes that are coated in dark chocolate and orange.
If you love the citrusy-sweet combination of orange and chocolate, these cookies are right up your alley!
Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato Soup
You're not alone in feeling skeptical about adding canned soup to your cart but Marks & Spencer's line of canned soup is there to prove you wrong.
Marks & Spencer's Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato Soup (which has double cream and parmesan) feels like restaurant-quality pumpkin soup that they canned for our convenience when we're nursing late-night cravings¬†or¬†when we're in need¬†of warmth during colder or rainy days. All you have to do is heat it up and serve it with bread; even the plainest bread will do!
Tomato & Basil Soup
If you're not into squash soup, maybe you'll fall in love with Marks & Spencer's tangy and herby Tomato & Basil Soup instead. You can elevate your experience with this flavorful soup by pairing it with a grilled cheese sandwich or buttered toast!
Percy Pig Gummies
Who says gummy candies are for kids only? Marks & Spencer's Percy Pig gummies can be equally enjoyed by the¬†kid-at-heart too! These are pig-shaped gummies that are¬†full of flavor because it uses¬†real fruit juices-mostly from the berry family.
If you're planning to give these to kids, the Percy Pig gummies claim to have no artificial colors and flavors! So that's two fewer things to worry about when adding¬†a pack of this candy¬†to your cart.
Sweet mint candies might not be everyone's thing, especially since we're more accustomed to either sweet candies. But if you're feeling adventurous, you should add a pack of Marks & Spencer's assorted mint candies to your basket.¬†
This pack includes five flavors:¬†Butter Mint, Mint Humbug, English Mint, Butter Mintoe, and Mint Toffee. You'll be surprised to know that mint can pair well with butter, caramel, and toffee.¬†
