TOP 5 ALTERNATIVE FESTIVE SWEET TREATS
Chuck out the chocolate orange and call quits on the Quality Street, it’s time to try some different Sweet Treats this Christmas. Here’s our choice on unusual takes to keep your sweet tooth in check!
CHOCOLATE TREATS THROUGH YOUR LETTERBOX
How about making someone’s day with a sweet treat by post? The chocoholics letterbox gift is filled with an assortment of indulgent treats and is certain to satisfy their sweet tooth. From chocolate popcorn and tasty chocolate chip shortbread to a hot chocolate stirring spoon and more, this box is filled with chocolatey snacks that they won’t want to share. Just don’t send to dog owners – our pup would take seconds to get through the cardboard to get to all that chocolate! Prices at £17 from www.buyagift.co.uk
SWEET TREATS FOR VEGANS
A lot of the time vegan can be a byword for tasteless but no more thanks to the LoveRaw Cre&m Filled Wafer bars which taste like a delicious chocolate bar rather than a so, so substitute. They are so good, in fact that they are a dead ringer for a certain wafery choccy treat! The 100% vegan bar contains no artificial nonsense, palm oil or dairy but is still bursting with flavour making it the perfect stocking filler treat for vegan loved ones. Priced at just £1.69 a bar get yours from www.eatloveraw.com

Collected by ethical beekeepers who care for and protect the bees, the honey blends are made with absolutely no additives or preservatives, just 100% natural ingredients that deliver all the nutritious goodness. Choose from flavours such as peppermint, chocolate right through to lemon and ginger and festive cranberries. Jars cost from just £5.50 from www.buzzyblends.co.uk
OUR CHOICE! LUXURY CHOCOLATE AND NUT COMBINATIONS WIN CHRISTMAS 2020
If we had to choose one chocolate treat to go under our tree it would undoubtedly be Farhi’s Cocoa Dusted Pecans- these are indescribably, mouth-watering good!
