We’ve had fantastic recognition in the press for our Christmas range. So if you’re still undecided on your festive fodder, here are just a few of our products which have caught the media’s eye.
Many of us will be tucking into our turkey on Christmas Day, but not everyone will have a big get-together with family and friends, so we’ve created our handy Co-op Ready to Cook Turkey and the Trimmings Box (£12). It’s received great reviews so far and it’s recently won a prestigious Quality Food Award!
No traditional Christmas dinner is complete without ‘pigs in blankets’. Our very own Co-op Irresistible Cocktail Sausages Wrapped in Bacon 288g (£3.29, 2 for £6.00) we’re tested by Good Housekeeping Magazine and received a cracking review: “The inviting sweet aroma of these was a real crowd-pleaser. A dash of pepper in the sausage meat brings the flavours alive, working with the sweet smokiness in the bacon to create a moreish bite”.
If you’re planning to make your own, try our Co-op Irresistible Pork and Caramelised Onion Sausages 400G (£2.99 – 2 for £5) which won full marks in Best Magazine’s review – described as “Deliciously juicy with a slightly spicy kick. Full marks” and combine with our Co-op Irresistible British Traditional Dry Cured Unsmoked Back Bacon 230G (£2.99 – 2 for £5) – which scored 81% in the Which? ‘Best Buy Bacon’ review.
If you fancy a change from turkey this year, try our juicy Co-op Irresistible Sweet Cured Silver Side Gammon with Spiced Orange and Honey Glaze 750G (£8). Good Food Magazine judges agreed it deserved the winner’s crown and we beat ASDA and M&S (whose similar product cost £18 and £12.50!).
And if you’re looking for a veggie option this year, our Co-op Irresistible Vegetarian Mushroom Wellington 423G (£4) is crammed with mushrooms and pine nuts, topped with a yummy cranberry sauce. Or as an alternative, give our Co-op Butternut and Quinoa Roast with Apple and Plum Glaze 500g (£3) a go – Women and Home Magazine described it as a “moist and flavoursome veggie option”.
For dessert (if you’ve still got the room), The Independent have called out our Co-op Fully Iced Christmas Cake 907G (£6) as one of their ’10 Best Christmas Cakes’. They said: “Hands-down, one of the most attractive cakes of the lot, this quality number has a soft pearl-like sheen and pop of colour from its red berry centrepiece”.
And finally, if you’re looking to add a little colour to your buffet table, liven it up with our Co-op Irresistible 12 French Macarons 125G (£4, or 3 for 2) – Good Food Magazine said: “These colourful, sweet bites bring a touch of elegance to a party. Light but full of flavour”.
We’re really proud of the range we have in store this Christmas. We hope you’ll love it as much as we do and get the opportunity to sample as many of these yummy Christmas treats as possible. Then tell your friends and family just how great they really are.
