What are your favourite Christmas foods? For me, it wouldn’t be Christmas Day if I didn’t eat my body weight in Terry’s Chocolate Orange, KP Cheese Footballs, Celebrations, crackers and mince pies.
From chocolate, cheese and crackers, to pate, pigs in blankets and Prosecco, discover the UK’s most-loved Christmas foods in this festive new infographic from Virginia Hayward, a luxury hamper company catering for dietary requirements. If you’re struggling to find the perfect present for a vegan, coeliac or diabetic this Christmas, a luxury food and drink hamper would be ideal.
The infographic also reveals the UK’s top five Christmas food pairings, including two of my personal favourites; wine and cheese, and chocolate and champagne. Meanwhile, cheese lovers will enjoy finding out the UK’s favourite cheeses, although the results may surprise some. I was shocked that Camembert wasn’t included – Christmas is one of the only times of the year I can get away with dunking mounds of crusty bread into hot, gooey baked Camembert (my own personal baked Camembert, that is).
When it comes to our festive tipple, you’re most likely to find us with a glass of wine, Prosecco, Port or champagne in our hands. That said, I know a few people who wouldn’t be without a hot mug of mulled wine or a cold pint of beer or ale on Christmas Day!
