Summer may be in full swing but retailers are already turning their attentions to their Christmas offerings as they tease details of their festive ranges for 2019.
Following on from the success of its festive plant-based range in 2018, Asda supermarket has released details of what we can expect to see hitting supermarket shelves in the UK this year from October 31st.
Starters & Nibbles
There’s a whole host of tempting nibbles to choose from at Asda this year such as Vegan Chestnut and Cranberry Vegan Stuffing Balls, Bombay Potato Croquettes, Vegan Cocktail Sausages and mini meat-free burger sliders.
As pretty as they are delicious, Extra Special Vegan Rainbow Vegetable Filo Tarts will also be launching in stores alongside Vegan Party Pasties.
As well as a plethora of tempting vegan sides such as no pork cocktail sausages and cranberry & apple stuffing balls which are perfect for Christmas party snacks, Asda is launching a festive vegan Wellington for those looking to swap out the traditional turkey for meat-free options.
The Wellington features puff pastry packed with chickpeas, cranberries, apricots and blended with festive spices and topped with a sweet cranberry sauce.
If you’re looking for something extra special then the Extra Special Vegan Wellington with a rich red wine gravy is sure to tempt you.
For dessert, Asda is launching an impressive looking chocolate swirl dessert that it claims ‘nobody will be able to resist this Christmas’.
The dessert is shaped in a traditional bundt style, delicious swirls contain sumptuous vegan caramel sauce, dairy-free chocolate mousse with a dark and decadent Belgian chocolate shell finished with gold lustre.
For those who prefer a fruity dessert, the supermarket is also offering an Extra Special Vegan Raspberry Torte.
Linsey Taylor, Senior Director of New Product Development, said of the range: “For me, this is the most exciting time of the year, unveiling the fabulous food and drink combinations we’ve been working hard on for the festive season. There’s something special about families coming together to celebrate the big day and it’s our job to ensure there’s delicious food for everyone to enjoy, and plenty of options for all involved.
“This year, we’ve really considered customer feedback from 2018 – creating products based on needs and desires for certain food and drink, particularly for those looking for more inclusive options but still seeking delicious flavour and great value”.
