Christmas Food Gift Guide 2016: Our Favourite Biscuits, Snacks, Crackers And Cheese

Christmas wouldn’t be the same without crackers, cheese and biscuits, so we take a look at our favourite snacks, biscuits, crackers and cheese for Christmas. We were kindly sent these to review.

Cheese And Crackers

Jacobs Christmas CrackersJacobs Christmas Crackers – £3.00

Jacobs is always a favourite at Christmas time and their gift pack of Jacobs Christmas crackers is the perfect set for Christmas. There are 7 different varieties in the box which includes, Chedders, Cornish Wafers, Digestives, Salt & Cracked Black Pepper Bakes, Cream Crackers and Water Biscuits.

Each of these crackers would be perfect for family and friends coming round at Christmas, plus there is a different type of cracker/biscuit to suite everyone.

Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a few extra treats to go alongside our cheese and biscuits, we’ve picked a few of our favourite accompaniments to go with these:

Opies Pickled Walnuts – £2.50Opies Pickled Walnuts

Opies Pickled Walnuts: These Walnuts have been pickled in malt vinegar to give a completely different twist on Walnuts. When opening the jar we could instantly smell the vinegar but to taste these we not overly vinegary and had a lovely pickle taste, these went perfectly with our cheese and biscuits but could also go nice with cold meats or a casserole.

Chestnut And VanillaClement Faugier Chestnut & Vanilla Spread – £4.95

Clement Faugier Chestnut & Vanilla Spread is something a little bit different to try this Christmas. This spread comes in a tin can and is easy to open. When we opened this we were instantly hit with the smell of chestnuts and vanilla and to taste we could easily taste these two flavours. Neither of these were over powering and complemented each other well and it was easy to spread which made it the perfect side dish to go with our cheese and biscuits.

Barry Norman’s Hot & Spicy Pickled Onions – £4.95Hot Pickled Onions

Having Cheese & Biscuits wouldn’t be the same without having some pickled onions to go along side them. Barry Norman has released his very own Hot & Spicy Pickled Onions and we have to say, they are delicious. They are crunchy, not overly pickled and are actually quite sweet, they do have a spice to them giving them a real winter taste. They are quite big so no need to worry about getting pickled onions which are tiny in the jar. Overall we loved these picked onions and they will definitely be at our Christmas table this year.
