The 24 Days of Snackmas

Happy Holidays, Snack Army!

I don't want to alarm anybody but tomorrow is the 1st of December.. Already. Everyone take a deep breath and relish in the peace and quiet whilst you still can.. Who am I trying to kid, of course I want to put the frighteners up you! Get a grip, get excited - It's Christmas, you bunch of Cotton-Headed Ninny-Muggins! 

With the annual festivities well under way at my end thanks to being a self professed, enthusiastic elf of all things Yuletide, naturally I am soaking up this time of year. From baking up a dried fruit storm to trips to every garden centre in the country, reaping in the decorative delights to bursting into merry melodies at any opportune moment, it is safe to say I am a sucker for this time of year and as MSW would say.. When a lot of us come alive and really do shine. 

This can mean only one thing.. Yes, Snackmas is back! A festive food review will be coming at you every day for the next 24, until the arrival of the Big Man is imminent. We've got Puddings, we've got Popcorn, Chocolate, Crisps, Coffee, Curd, more Cheese than you can choke on and what I'm branding, "The FFF".. Festive Fast Food! There will be no need to get your tinsel in a twist with the obligatory all time favourites of Sammies, Panettone and Stollen chucked in a long the way for good measure and combined with classic Christmas flavours.. I am hoping there's something to please everyone!

So are we all ready to Rudolph? Are you now excited? You best be. Don't make me come over there because I will. Santa doesn't just see you when you're sleeping or know when you're awake.. He knows if you've been bad or good so get into Snackmas for goodness sake! See you tomorrow, Folks!

    1. This is what you get for not telling me your every movement! You've brought this on yourself Butty! Haha. I'll get wafting! xx

  5. Wow that's a lot of movement all in one go.lucky I'm not known for my motion sickness.
    Plus a bonus sleigh ride , this really is getting more adventurous than I first thought ... I was thinking I could just settle in with a cuppa in hand on my comfy couch all the way over the pond in Australia and enjoy your witty reviews but now I have to seriously consider how I am possibly going to be able to hold onto all my festive snacks whilst on a sleigh ride AND rudolphing it up ... but rest assured I'll figure it out ..lol

    1. Now would be a bad time for the old motion sickness to kick in, wouldn't it? Haha. Oh no no no.. Things get pretty wild here. It's hard to say what's coming next really! I have every faith in you, Sarah - You strike me as a woman who's got her s**t together! Roll on the next 3 weeks, thats what I say! xx

    1. Have you passed through the 7 levels of the candy cane forest and through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops to get to me, by any chance? :D xx
