Re: Festive snacks, sweets & treats

Two things, other than mince pies of course:

 

Tunnocks teacakes and Spekulatius biscuits:

Re: Festive snacks, sweets & treats

I like the teacakes. Can't say I've tried the biscuits. I'm more for shortbread...

Re: Festive snacks, sweets & treats

Then there's the mighty Pandoro (plain, no fruit in this one) and the Yule Log (not Cadbury's, but M&S or Sainsbury's do nice ones) :

Re: Festive snacks, sweets & treats

They do exist and are more obvious now.
Think I saw them in Lidl last time I was in there...

Re: Festive snacks, sweets & treats

Lidl's ones are ok, but a bit heavy.

 

The Coppenwrath and Wiese ones are available in Poundland this year, for the 400G pack I pictured.

 

I am sure M&S or Waitrose will have their own versions.

 

Typically each biscuit shows a scene - elephant, windmill, Santa, palm tree, woman, lion, etc.

Re: Festive snacks, sweets & treats

Love the teacakes and the Yule log @pgn but the biscuits and Pandoro are new to me. Are the biscuits sweet?

Yes, @Glory1@ sweet with cinnamon and clove aroma, and very crisp. Common in Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands..

And the Pandoro is a sweet, leavened plain cake, of Italian origin. Varieties with fruit, Panettone, and Nutella or chocolate are available.

I forgot the German Stollen, a sweet bread filled with marzipan and raisins and/or other nuts :

Ooh @pgn those biscuits sound delicious and I love cinnamon and cloves.

 

I thought the Pandoro, from it's name, might be Italian and again sounds delicious.

 

But German Stollen, oh God I love Stollen and forgot to check if Waitrose still stock it. I know they used to. I'll have one of my friends I'm staying with check if they can get any of the treats you mention in a shop in Cambridge. Hope so yahoo
