Asda has revealed what their 2020 Christmas food range looks like and we are so excited!
It’s not yet August but there are only 155 days left till Christmas which means, we can officially start to get excited. 2020’s been a bit of a shit show so far anyway, hasn’t it!?
It goes without saying that food is the best bit about Christmas, never-ending cheese boards and turkey sandwiches are what get us all through the rest of the year.
Asda has revealed their 2020 Christmas range and it includes a CHEESE ROULETTE. Let the choir sing baby!
Right let’s first look at the Buffet range, you know the stuff you bung in the oven on Boxing Day as the kids new toys make too much noise for your hangover to handle?
There’s Salmon Mac & Cheese Bites, Pork, Chicken & Stuffing Layered Pork Pie and a even a vegan Bao Bun Selection.
They’ve also got a dish called ‘Pigs on Fire’ – of course this is a fiery version of pigs in blankets using British prime pork blended with Carolina Reaper hot chillis. It’s perched on a jalapeño before being wrapped in streaky bacon. Delicious. And hot.
Taking centre stage this year is an Easy Carve Boneless Turkey Centrepiece, Vegan Turkey Joint and Slow Cooked Beef Shin. They are of course bringing back the 12-piece Pig in Blanket Centrepiece that was really popular last year.
And a giant Pig in Blanket Sausage Roll – two things I didn’t know I needed combining together until now.
Other mains include a Christmas Dinner Parcel which comes filled with turkey breast, wrapped around a classic pork, sage and onion stuffing, with chopped sprouts, lashings of smoked bacon and finished with a port glaze. There’s also a ‘creamy, rich and hard to resist’ Cauliflower Cheese Sweet Potato & Cranberry Wellington.
Is your mouth watering yet? It’s about to be.
If you love cheese, you’ll be excited to hear about the British Farmhouse Stack to Cheese Roulette. It’s a mix of cheese and fun – what could possibly be better for Christmas?
If you’ve still got a bit of space left and haven’t filled up on Match Makers there’s plenty of desserts on sale too. Expect Gingerbread Cheesecake, a Chocolate Orange Opera cake Bruce the Brussel Sprout Cake and Reindeer Ice Cream Lollies.
If Match Makers aren’t your thing you could opt for the brand new Spiced Clementine Fudge, Sour Cherry Nougat and Spiced Orange & Triple Sec Chocolate Cookies.
Or the creme de la creme, Salted Caramel Mince Pies. WOW.
Finally, the second best thing about Christmas – booze! Asda are bringing back their popular Mince Pie Gin Liqueur and Gingerbread Gin Liqueur, alongside newbie Cranberry & Clementine Gin.

Once all the information has been collated, MoneyBeach.co.uk will officially crown the best festive food in the UK.
Mike Rees, CEO of MoneyBeach.co.uk, comments: “As a specialist website for restaurant and takeaway insurance, we keep a keen eye on takeaway trends in the UK.
“This year is the first year that many limited-edition Christmas menus have been available for delivery at home, and it prompted us to wonder if we could find out once and for all which festive food is officially the best.
“We’ll be looking for someone who loves Christmas as much as they love takeaways, as it’s really important for us to know how much festive joy each dish or snack brings.”
Applications are open now and you have to be over 18 to apply.
Asda is now selling ‘Nutella’ flavoured KitKats and they’re the ultimate snack
Take my money!
Sounds like taking a break just got a hell of a lot more delicious.
Nestle, the brand behind KitKat, have now combined the popular chocolate biscuit with hazelnut spread to create the ultimate choccy biccy.
It’s not actually Nutella, but instead, a chocolate hazelnut spread that tastes just like it.
Kevssnackreviews posted the news over on Instagram, just a month after the recent launch of KitKat honeycomb flavour.
The bars consist of chocolate covered wafer biscuit fingers with a good layer of chocolate hazelnut spread in the middle too!
Amy Bennett-Inge, assistant brand manager for KitKat, said: “We’ve experienced huge demand for our two-finger KitKats this year and we know that fans love to try new flavours from the brand.
“We think our honeycomb and chocolate hazelnut spread varieties really hit the spot, and we’re sure they’ll become popular new additions to the range.”
The KitKat bars are now available at Asda in packs of nine and will set you back £1.50.
Lindt is now doing Candy Cane Lindor Truffles and they’re the perfect Christmas treat
These look amazing.
Lindt is combining its succulent white chocolate Lindor range with Candy Cane truffles for the perfect festive treat.
The indulgent treats are a brand new flavour for the UK and are absolutely perfect for Christmas.
Combining deliciously smooth white Lindt chocolate with peppermint candy cane pieces and an oozy truffle centre.
Kevssnackreviews shared the new flavour on Instagram with the caption: “There’s crunchy candy cane pieces in the shell atop the classic smooth filling, it’s nicely minty but the white chocolate tempers the flavour so it’s not too overpowering.
“The chocolate melts in the mouth nicely leaving little crunchy candy cane pieces.”
The treats are available for £5.99 on GBGifts.co.uk but boxes are already selling fast so you’ll have to be quick!
You can also get the truffles on Amazon but they come with a heftier price tag of £22.99, as the truffles come from America.
In other white chocolate news, you can now buy a white choc flavoured liqueur from Aldi that tastes just like a boozy Milkybar.
The boozy treat, described as ‘a light yet luxurious cream liqueur with the classic flavour of cocoa butter and cream’, is part of their festive range and will set you back £6.99.
