December- The true meaning of Christmas. Food.
The lights have been switched on, the office parties have started and lists have been written, so this must mean the big man is on his way ( unless you’ve been spending your time in Starbucks in which case Genghis Khan will be making his way down your chimney) .
This means three things:
1) We’re all scrapping for TVs at midnight in ASDA.
2) Men the world over are panicking over what to buy the women in their lives.
3) Your children are magically adding zeros to your credit card bill.
So, this leaves the one element we can all rely on. Food. And here at Haley & Clifford we have a sleigh load of it. Our wonderful buying lady Michelle (Frodo’s Irish cousin) has been busy over the last few months wheeling and dealing to get the best local Christmas treats for you to buy.
This year, there are kits to make your own cheeses (no cow/goat/sheep required) or chocolate houses (as well as the usual ready made versions). From the good people at Raydale we have every conceivable chutney, jam and preserve- which I’m fairly sure are the same thing. For the lazy alcoholic in your life, mulled wine and mulled cider syrups are available, as well as sloe gins and ports from the Sloemotion crew based near York. Our selection of chocolates would make Willy Wonka jealous, and we have panettone, panforte, cantuccini, lebkucken and stollen from our friends in the EU. If you have an army descending this Christmas, you could feed them all with our giant pork pies from award winning Voakes in North Yorkshire (pre order by 12th December)
Any of our lovely products can be made into hampers (see our hampers page for our standard selections if you’re all out of ideas), lovingly gift wrapped and delivered to your door of choice.
As for me, I’m already sick of making mince pies and winter soups but hey, I out-wrestled a 64 year old woman at 12.01am for my new 80 inch TV, so it’s not all bad.
