Tesco's Christmas 2020 range includes chocolate-filled baubles cakes

There may still be leaves on the trees and yes, we are holding on to summer for dear life, but you guys, winter means Christmas and all the snacks that come with it. Tesco have announced their Christmas range, ding dong cheers and they're selling the most amazing cakes you've ever seen.

Every year, all the major supermarkets compete with each other to have the biggest, best, most luxurious and delicious holiday products. If it's not a giant grilled cheese, it's a two-metre pig in a blanket, and if that's not enough, there are pudding options, like Aldi's giant Ferrero Rocher pudding.

The festive menu spans animal, vegetable, mineral and sweet and savory options, and although it's too early to tell, Tesco could be on the verge of making a splash with its fantastic pudding selection. Well, I should probably avoid the word "select" as I have my eyes set on the prize that is the crown jewel of their Christmas desserts. Guys, they're selling real bauble cakes.

As a follower of the culinary rules, I'll save this delight for last and let me take you on a peek at some of the delicious treats from Tesco's festive range. Maybe wear a bib, because, yannow, drool.

Appetizers and snacks

With veganism on the rise, retailers seem to be increasingly taking notice, with Vegan Food & Living reporting that Tesco is leading the way and its products are clearly not an afterthought. There are no prawn cracker dips (£4), jackfruit lollies (£2) and no mozzarella sticks (£3) for the vegetarians among us to try.

For the omnivores, there's chicken samosas (£5), beef mac and cheese cups (£5) and mini fisherman's pies (£4) that even Captain Bird's Eye couldn't resist. Meat lovers can also add fangs to their giant sausage roll log (£5), The Sun reports.

Power and sides

Delish reports that if you like, you can go a little fancier and forget about the turkey and try their French trimmed crispy pork loin with truffle and porcini butter (£15)? Or maybe you prefer lamb shank with Seville jam maple glaze and seed crumbs (price on request)? However, to avoid carving bickering, the Simple Carved Duck in Maple and Orange Glaze (price on request) may suit you better.

You can also enjoy sides such as giant pig in a blanket (£2 for 10) and Brussels sprouts with chestnuts and flavored butter (prices on request). Vegetables can be eaten with the Wicked Kitchen Wellington (£7), a turkey-free version of the Wicked Kitchen Roasted Crown (£5), and don't worry the acclaimed pig-free blanket is back (£2.20 for 10).


Now onto the ultimate resist, selfie-worthy centerpiece: folks, it's the Chocolate Orange Maple Bauble Cake (£13). By the way, when you cut into this cake, the secret center filled with chocolate malt balls spills onto your plate. By the way, this cake serves 14 people. The cake was not to be outdone, with two layers of citrus-sweet orange sponge, a layer of gorgeous chocolate and orange brownie, held together by orange and Belgian chocolate buttercream. All this joy is wrapped in a thick layer of maple butter cream and topped with giant white chocolate baubles you can fight for at the end.

There's also a rather stunning Wicked Kitchen Vegan Ginger Milk Tea Cake (£9), packed with seasonal spices, ginger, soaked in milk tea, then hand-frosted, topped with caramelized ginger slices and dusted with cinnamon sugar.

The supermarket will be staggering the launch of its festive range over the next few months, so keep an eye out for the latest and greatest
