Asda is one of the first major UK supermarkets to showcase what you’ll be munching on this Christmas including Giant Sharing Mince Pies and a Plant-Based Vegan Turkey Crown.
Oh, and wait until you meet Jingle the Reindeer…
This year Asda has created a menu of succulent and showstopping products which the whole family can enjoy this Christmas. With an impressive 740 products, including over 100 Vegan and Free From line-ups, Asda says this is “undoubtedly bigger and better than ever before”
Recognising that this Christmas families will be looking at ways to make their money go further, the UK retailer will offer quality products at all different price points without compromising on taste.
Here’s everything you’ll want this Christmas from ASDA…
When it comes to throwing a party, more is more! and this year you’ll be able to WOW guests with Asda’s Scottish Smoked Salmon and Terrine Wreath or how about this Extra Special Ibérico Bellota Crostini Kit which provides everything you need to make the perfect Crostini canapés at home.
No festive shin-ding would be complete without the traditional vol-au-vents, however, this Christmas ASDA has taken them to a new level with their Extra Special Star Shaped Vol-Au Vents.
Catering for Vegans? then they’ll be back for seconds and thirds, with these Plant Based Breaded vegan Brie and Sweet Chillo Relish bites.
THE MAIN EVENT & TRIMMINGS
Never short of WOW moments when it comes to the main event (think back to last year’s Beefless Wellington) Asda has gone all out with this year’s offerings, which if you’re not already starving you will be in five seconds when you see this Plant Based Vegan Turkey Crown with Umami Basting Stock.
But if the turkey is still top of your shopping list, then head straight for the Extra Special Free Range & Corn-Fed Norfolk Bronze Turkey with Pork, Sage & Caramalised Onion Stuffing.
No table is complete without the much-desired trimmings, this year your plate will be brimming as you add dazzling carrot baubles or a dollop of Wykes Farm’s Cauliflower Cheddar Cheese Gratin
If we’ve not said it before we’re saying it now, this is everyone’s favourite course! and this Christmas Asda has ticked all the indulgent boxes from this Millionaire’s Edible Bowl Dessert which comes complete with edible spoons, the layered Millionaire’s dessert is filled with crunchy digestive biscuit, toffee flavour mousse, sticky toffee sauce and rich chocolate ganache.
Novelty cake more your style? Then let us introduce you to Asda’s novelty character for 2022 the one and only Jingle the Reindeer. Cute and cheeky, there are 17 products within this theme; including Mini Rolls, Gingerbread and the showstopping Double Smash Cake, simply smash Jingle’s red nose to reveal a secret stash of reindeer treats, all nestled on a pillow of super scrummy frosting and chocolate sponge. Great fun for the whole family.
Everyone loves a mince pie at Christmas it’s just a fact, and those who adore the fruity pie will fall head over heels for Asda Extra Special Giant Indulgent Mince Pie. Perfect for sharing, if you can bring yourself to do so!
SNACKS, SWEETS AND CHRISTMAS SPECIALITIES
We can only really shout ‘IT’S CHRISTMAS’ once we’ve gobbled around 20 mince pies in our mouths and washed them down with a bottle of something bubbly, so this holiday season you can enjoy one of Asda’s many tempting treats including Extra Special Raspberry and Dark Chocolate Nougat.
As always, a huge range of wine and ready-to-drink festive cocktails have been included in this year’s line-up including an Extra Special South African Chenin Blanc.
An abundance of cheeses and chutneys and, have been added to the slate this year such as the Extra Special Pearl Onions in White Balsamic with Pink Grapefruit – grazing at the cheeseboard just got better.
Sam Dickson, Acting Chief Customer Officer at Asda, said: “Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a little indulgence… and whilst 2022 continues to be a difficult year for many, the festive season presents an opportunity to take joy and comfort from the smallest pleasures, spending time in great company, with great food. From new takes on Christmas classics, to trend-led dishes inspired by our three core flavour profiles, this year’s Christmas range delivers something to wow every guest at your dinner table, festive party, or family night in.
“We know that this year more than ever, families will be looking at ways to make their money go further, but that they don’t want to compromise on taste. Our amazing colleagues have been working incredibly hard all year to bring customers our biggest and most innovative range yet, delivering fantastic quality products at all price points, and we can’t wait to help shoppers make Christmas 2022 an utterly magic one!”
