Blogmas Day Eight - Christmas Treats


So in this blogmas post we thought we would share with you some of the treats that we like to buy in preparation for Christmas. We always buy treats ready for Christmas as well as bake as you have seen from our gingerbread recipe in a previous blogmas post, but sometimes we decide to be lazy and just buy treats instead. So here are some of the treats that we like to buy every Christmas.

Firstly, every Christmas since we were little we would buy a tin of quality street. Every year we would  buy a tin of quality street which would last to about Christmas Eve. Therefore, we started buying two so that we could still feast on the sweets on Christmas day. Quality Streets is something that we associate with Christmas so when they get bought in the weekly shop we know it is Christmas.

Another is a chocolate orange. This would be a reoccurring Christmas stocking filler that would be saved until it was too tempting and then eaten all at once. We love a chocolate orange at Christmas and it is a good stocking filler if you are struggling to find something.

We also like to have a tub of roses as well as heroes as they have a variety of chocolates. The heroes tend to be better with the kids as they don't tend to like not knowing which chocolate they have and like to just pick one they know rather than read a list of options. But sometimes they will eat both as chocolate is chocolate to them.

For any vegan treats we tend to go to Holland and Barrett and look at their vegan treats although this can sometimes be expensive so we tend to stick to homemaking these types of treats. However, we sometimes find any local vegan shop on our phones and go and have a look at what they have. We also like to go to the Cardiff market where they do vegan welsh cakes. We love these all year round but they are a nice treat at Christmas with a coffee.

Thanks for reading today's blogmas. Stay tuned for tomorrows blogmas and leave a comment about what Christmas treats you like to have at Christmas. Follow our social media to keep up to date of when we post and what we are up to.
