From gingerbread latte cream liqueur to a brie that’s designed to be melted, Tesco’s 2021 Christmas range certainly won’t disappoint. Here’s a sneak peak at what’s in store this year
Tesco is one of the first major retailers to reveal its Christmas range for 2021, including a gingerbread liqueur and a profiterole gateau along with all the classic festive treats we don’t want to go without.
Summer is still underway and a heatwave is expected very soon, but that hasn’t stopped the supermarket chain from getting us in the mood for festive food. It’s never too early, right?
Expect juicy turkey crowns and crackling gammon joints packed with delicious flavour, succulent party food that requires minimal effort and and must-have desserts – including the show-stopping Speculoos Profiterole Gateau. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it.
The supermarket giant has also gone all out on vegan options this year with plenty of new additions to its plant-based ranges, including portobello mushroom wellingtons, beet & horseradish pastry parcels and spiced rum Christmas pudding.
The gingerbread latte cream liqueur is already available to pick up in stores, but you’ll need to be patient and wait for everything else to hit Tesco shelves.
Here are our top picks from this year’s Tesco Christmas food range.
Tesco Finest Baking Brie, £6
Cheese lovers, get excited. Tesco has created a show-stopping brie that’s made to be melted – and we can’t think of anything more dreamy.
The flavorsome soft-baked treat is drizzled with a brandy glaze bursting with festive flavors including sweet fig and bitter notes from fruit peels.
Specially designed by Tesco chefs, it is also topped with crunchy walnut kernels for a spectacular finish.
Tesco Finest Gingerbread Latte Irish Cream Liqueur, £12
This gingerbread-flavoured cream liqueur is sure to go down a treat this festive season.

Bring the wow factor to your Christmas dinner table with this extremely indulgent profiterole pudding.
