But, I don't want to be a pie,: snowidontlikegravy on December 13th, 2010 09:46 pm (UTC)
We're big on tradition in our house, we try to buy the same things year after year for Christmas and not have them any other time of year so they stay special.

For me it's more nibbly things and sweets that I associate with the holidays. There are these savoury snacks called Cheese Footballs, which are tiny soccer balls made from a kind of waferish biscuit, filled with this soft cheese filling, and you can only really find them around Christmas. There are actually websites where you can go to find out who has them in stock!!!

Pickled eggs
Old Jamaica Chocolate (rum & raisin bar made by Cadbury)
Brandy snaps
Vol au Vents
Chestnuts (because since I turned veggie I have a chestnut pie instead of turkey)
laver bread (for a full Welsh breakfast)
