These days you have to grab the good stuff when it’s going.
If that means cracking on with Christmas a bit earlier this year, then head for Lidl on your next grocery shop; a selection of gloriously naughty festive treats have already hit the shelves.
This year, the retailer has gone all out in the freezer aisle, launching a variety of brand new Deluxe double-cream Christmas Ice-Creams.
The frozen treats (€2.79) come in Gingerbread, with biscuit bits and toffee sauce, and Mince Pie flavour, both ideal for scooping from the tub while you watch mindless Christmas movies on Netflix to while out the rest of the lockdown.
If that doesn’t tempt you, there’s a new addition to the booze aisle too…
Lidl’s popular Deluxe Irish Cream Liqueur is now available in Salted Caramel flavour – perfect for whipping up an espresso martini or soaking through a luscious traditional bread and butter pudding.
You can nab two bottles for €15 in all 163 Lidl stores across the country for a limited time.
If you’re looking for a way to keep little hands occupied for an afternoon, their Gingerbread House Kit (€7.99) is a fun project to put together during the coming weeks, it’s available now in-store.
The only problem will be trying to make it last until December without cracking off a bit to have with a cup of tea.
