Top 5 products you should add to your menu this Christmas
Hi, I’m Vicky, self-proclaimed foodie, home baker and Project Manager of our Bidfood Christmas Campaign for 2020. Are you thinking of what to add to your menus this Christmas, and want a helping hand? Here are some of my favourites for this year.
1. 12” Kraft Robin Charity Cracker
The Trussell Trust is a charity that supports a nationwide network of food banks. Their mission is to stop UK hunger. Supporting this charity is very important to us at Bidfood and in the current circumstances we find ourselves in, supporting the Trussell Trust is even more important. £2 of every case sold of the Kraft Robin Charity Cracker (and the other two designs in the Kraft cracker range) goes directly to the Trussell Trust. So adding this cracker onto your tables this festive period is a great way to help out a fantastic charity.
2. Brussels Sprouts with Chestnuts & Bacon
These buttery festive favourites have been taken to the next level with the addition of sweet chestnuts and bacon lardons. Simply pan fry from defrost or microwave or oven cook from with no additional prep time in the morning, meaning you can spend more time on other tasks in the lead up to service.
3. Mirrored Chocolate Truffle Torte
This pre-cut dessert is both gluten free and vegan! It’s visually stunning, has a delicious, almost fruity flavour to the chocolate and can suit a variety of different dietary requirements. This dessert is a no brainer for your menu.
5. Individually Wrapped Chocolate Log Cake Slice
We see individually wrapped products as a very important part of a Christmas takeaway offering this year. Individually wrapped products can provide your customers that added reassurance of minimal contact with what they are eating. This chocolate slice has a lovely added festive touch on top with assorted Christmas motifs as well as providing a delicious chocolate fix. Sounds like it would be perfect with a cup of coffee to me!
5. Phat Pasty Turkey & Cranberry Sausage Roll
Watch out Greggs, there’s a new grab & go sausage roll in town. This Christmas sausage roll is definitely one for anyone offering a takeaway menu over the festive season. Consumers love festive flavours added to their usual food choices. Think about when the Christmas sandwiches come out in the supermarkets… people love it! As soon as Halloween is over, I think it’s acceptable to be offering festive foods for all to enjoy! Especially this year… I think we deserve the warm comfort of festive flavours in our sausage rolls.
