2020 has been a very tough year for everyone, we have all pretty much had to stay inside for most of it and a lot of people had already started to prepare early for Christmas this year. Trees were being taken out of lofts as soon as the clock struck midnight on the 1st of November.
In a typical year, our tree wouldn’t usually go up until the second week of December but because of the circumstances, I wanted to really enjoy this month with my family so we joined the “party” and put ours up on the 1st of December.
I did another first and visited Jacks superstore which is part of the Tesco family to see what they had to offer. I had absolutely no idea what it was going to be like and was pleasantly surprised. I spent £40 and filled two big shopping baskets full to the brim with food for all the family, including our fur babies.
My mission that day was to throw a small Christmas party to celebrate the start of December and the countdown to Christmas, and thanks to Jacks, I was able to not only put on an amazing platter of party food that the kids (and I) absolutely loved, but there was so much food that I also had plenty of leftovers after. This made David happy as he could snack on them the whole of the next day.
Every Christmas David and I love chilling watching movies with some crisps, occasionally some popcorn, but most importantly some lovely cheese and crackers. Jacks offers a decent selection, but more than that I was able to pick up a lovely cheese board, with slates you can name the cheese on for display (when you are able to have guests round again), a large box of various crackers, and some poinsettias for our coffee table.
I just couldn’t, and still can’t, believe how low the prices are in Jacks, and without affecting the quality. Jacks pride themselves on having great tasting food at the lowest possible prices and that is exactly how it felt when I was in there. They also have the middle aisle for non-food items which is where I picked up my £4.00 Slate cheese board mentioned above, the best cheese board I’ve had, a pack of 14 Christmas crackers, and my poinsettias.
If you have never been and are looking for some amazing party food on a budget, Jacks can offer you a wide selection to manage pretty much any party without breaking the bank to do it.
