    So as the season is coming to a close what festive treats still lurk in your cabinets, fridge, utility room?

    I still have left;

    A Yule Log,
    A Large Cadburys Selection Box,
    A Large Galaxy Selection Box,
    A Large Bag of Chilli Nuts,
    1 Tub of Pringles,
    14 Packets of King Crisps,
    A packet of Snow Bites,
    1 Large Cadburys Mint Oreo Bar,
    Remains of Quality Street and Celebrations now separated into Daily Individual Bags (to ensure the over eating stops and spread the last of the Christmas goodies out)

    There is a lot still left but we were away for quite a bit of the holidays, hence the backlog of goodies.

    What do ye guys have left?

    We have half a box of milk tray and that's it.

    If you'd asked me this time yesterday we had an awful lot more but well... the "Sunday night dread" kicked in last night big time so... :o:o:o

    Cleared out the last mince pie last night, still have 2 boxes of biscuits and some of the bars from the many selection boxes the kids got though.
    Some crisps still there (but we'd have them in the house anyway) & some beers but other than that I think we managed to eat/drink our way through everything in the last week or so! Alot less wastage this year funnily enough.

    I hardly drank over the festive season, so I have a lot of wine and prosecco around. I have at least two unopened boxes of biscuits and a small box of truffles. Giving away a big tub of celebrations to some kids. Finally, I have a bit of trifle -it won't be around long!

    A couple of boxes of party mix and some sweet and salty mixed nuts I made. And an empty box of After Eights taunting me from the coffee table. :pac:

    We have a LOT left over - got so many boxes of biscuits and chocolates from people and then the stuff we got ourselves that we just couldn’t possibly go through that much - also, I’ve been sick, so my appetite for all food, never mind sweet stuff, has been pretty much non existent. I think I’m slowly getting back to normal but it’s annoying that we have so much leftovers!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,329 ✭✭✭ Day Lewin


    Only a few mince pies. They are the best mince pies I've ever made, too. Fruity, nutty, spicy mincemeat, in crisp brown flaky pastry.

    I'm not very fond of pastry but the Lewin family just love these. Holding on to the last few for the 6th of January!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,130 ✭✭✭ RentDayBlues


    Froze a lot of stuff at the weekend including:

    Half a Christmas cake
    Portions of turkey and ham
    Garlic potatoes

    Also have anothe cake still out, cheese, chocs and some various treats, though I made inroads into most of it last night

    Did you sleep through Christmas or are you in a job where the public really appreciate you, a postman for example?? :D

    We start stocking up early and between what we buy and the gifts we receive end up with a good bit. We did end up with extra Kimberley this year due to the offer at Lidl but they have a good date. We normally have a few bits left until Easter.


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,012 ✭✭✭✭ Toto Wolfcastle


    7 tins of Kimberley! :eek: You won't have to buy goodies for the whole year.

    A few boxes of sweets and a box of truffles that's disappearing rapidly beside me on the couch!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,792 Postgrad10


    I'm raging some family member has stuffed the sweet wrapppings under the sofa. Grrrr. My pet hate.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,994 ✭✭✭ CheerLouth


    7 tins of Kimberly?! I didn't get one! Told my mam to keep an eye out for me and she bought herself two and me none! Devo! Will have to buy a six pack at some point in the future! Preferably when Mr. CL isn't around so I don't have to share lol


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,461 ✭✭✭ donegal_man


    Two mini puddings from Aldi which the OH and I are saving for St Valentine's Day

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,380 ✭✭✭ chuckles30


    Box of heros
    Two boxes of the mixed ferrero rocher (got the 2 for €8 in Euro2 one day.....absolutely convinced it was a mistake, but who was I to argue!!)
    Red box of Foxes Chocolate Biscuits
    Half a Christmas Cake
    HM Mince pies (in the freezer)
    Couple of portions of Turkey Curry (in the freezer)
    Not worried about any of it as no goodies need to be bought anytime soon:)

    We still have a box of Cadbury's chocolate fingers, possibly a bag of KP chilli nuts and I have a Crunchie from a selection box that I am saving in the fridge. Oh and my gran still has a M&S mini Christmas pudding which we were debating eating last night but we were both full and it's best before 11 Feb so there is still time :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,712 ✭✭✭ DvB


    My mum & dad were up over the weekend to see the kids & they brought up a large Lidl christmas pud (we'd gotten a small one ourselves which was eaten on christmas day) & 2 boxes of mince pies they'd still had since christmas. As they were out visiting this year no one actually called in to their house so thay have loads left over & claimed thay'd only end up binning them... I didn't complain as I love a mince pie (or 12)
