Voted our winner! This soft and springy Panettone was a massive hit with our testers who all said one slice was not enough. Instantly on opening you could smell a nutty chocolate – think Nutella with a hint of orange. Our tasters said this was as soft as a pillow and tasted delightful, the generous amounts of hazelnuts on top of the bread balanced out the sweetness of the chocolate and orange liqueur. The panettone had lavish amounts of peel and melted in your mouth.

As soon as you open the packaging the panettone aroma filled the air, basically Christmas in a box – fruit, sugar, cranberries and butter. Cutting was like a breeze think of a good soft loaf and you’re bang on. We particularly liked its home made look and how well the fruit was dispersed throughout. The Panettone was moist and the spiced cherries and cranberries gave it that extra kick.

Sainsbury's Taste the Difference All Butter Prosecco Panettone IMAGE COMING SOONPresented in a gorgeous gold box, we loved its festive design. Our tasters felt this was light and fluffy and had a good balance of fruits and prosecco – prosecco is perhaps a little too subtle for some tastes. The dough melted in the mouth and was not dry, a great crowd pleaser for any party.

This beautifully soft Panettone was hidden in a festive round gold tin with geometric lines and had a super buttery taste and texture. With generous helping of sultanas and peel on top and throughout our tasters felt any more may have been too much. A good bake, easily cut and perfect for sharing around the table.
