“Shopping for Christmas dinner “

Good Housekeeping consumer director Caroline Bloor said: “Shopping for Christmas dinner – one of the most eagerly anticipated meals of the year – can be very stressful. “Deciding what to choose when faced with products you may only buy once a year can be hit and miss. That’s why we’ve done all the hard work for you – and tracked down the best options across 13 categories. “In most categories, the overall winner is from a high street supermarket. If you’re going to splash out, save your money for the champagne and smoked salmon.”
Winners were:
Champagne: Louis Roederer Brut Premier NV
Smoked salmon: Loch Fyne Bradan Orach Traditional Smoked Salmon
Turkey: Morrisons Free-range Frozen Turkey
Stuffing: Morrisons Fruit and Cognac Stuffing Balls
Cranberry sauce: The Co-operative Truly Irresistible Cranberry Sauce
Ham: Harrods Orange and Cranberry Ham
Christmas pudding: Aldi Connoisseur Christmas Pudding
Brandy butter: Marks & Spencer Brandy Butter with Remy Martin
Mulled wine: Tesco Premium Mulled Wine
Mince pies : Heston from Waitrose Spiced Shortcrust Mince Pies
Christmas cake: Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Stag Iced Rich Fruit Cake
Alternative Christmas cake: Winner: Marks & Spencer Salted Caramel Chocolate Forest Cake
Stilton: Morrisons Signature Stilton

I may just afford a trip to my local Morrison’s and Aldi !

  1. We stopped at Loch Fyne when we were in Scotland several weeks ago. And agree: it’s the best smoked salmon I’ve ever tasted. Perhaps of greater significance, my husband, who is far more sensitive to taste than I am, thought so too.
