Oh my gosh it's amazing isn't it. Were going away to Spain after Xmas for two weeks so I don't wanna buy loads and waste it but thinking about the m and s party food for the night before we fly out just an easier option o guess. Have you had the m and s food before? Is it as delicious as it looks xxx
I havenít brought it personally we havenít ever done our own Christmas dinner! But my mother in law does an order and it really is delicious! I donít know whether itís because Iím drunk by the time I have it or because the food is magical but Christmas dinner always tastes a million times better than her usual Sunday roasts though they are yummy too. The puddings and snack-y stuff is my fave though. The sweet stuff really is nice. She had a cheese board type thing last year too for Boxing Day but I must admit that was pretty disappointing there wasnít a lot there and was pretty basic, couldíve got it a lot cheaper elsewhere. I suppose for a bit of luxury and the added convenience that itís all ordered and sorted, itís pretty good and I think if/when we do host Christmas here, Iíll order from there. X

We do m&s christmas food too, I prefer it to cooking for ages! we got their chocolate and caramel christmas pudding this year, only DH likes the traditional kind so I'm hoping this one will appeal to more people.

We used to always get sushi on christmas eve but now we've moved it's not an option so we're picking up our xmas food on the 23rd and having roast ham on christmas eve.

Mince pies , rafellos, biscuit tins and lots of cheese!

We ordered from M+S last year and it is yummy but as it's only us four this year I'm thinking it's not worth the extra money. That said I love Christmas dinner so will probably end up ordering :-)

Iím sat with a whole Terryís chocolate orange and a coffee watching the apprentice. It was supposed to be for over the Christmas period. This is why I canít buy food early

I love M&S food at christmas and always buy some form of meat from the xmas food to order(the three bird roast is amazing!) But don't really order anything else from it as its way too expensive. I buy things like cauliflower cheese, veg and potatoes instore as i don't like the pre prepared ones anyway. For party food i always try and buy it when they put it on half price for a week in the run up to christmas and then freeze it. Or even buying it on their normal offer of 4 for 3 works out cheaper plus you get to choose exactly what you want rather than being limited to the platters. They usually do £5 off £35 spemd till spits too.

If anyone is ordering xmas food with them remember to do it early (mid nov i think?) As you get a free bottle of wine on orders over £85.
