Love them or hate them, they’re everywhere. You can’t miss them. They’re the go to present, perfect for children, family members you haven’t seen in ages, they’re cheap and they’re cheerful and we’ve all had one or two over the years haven’t we? Me personally.. I hate them. My mum and my wife know never to get me a selection box at Christmas, unless it’s biscuits (always got time for a biscuit!) – i would much prefer a really nice box of Ferraro rochers or some after eights. Even so, you just can’t escape selection boxes still being super popular in supermarkets up and down the country!
Here I’ve listed the best of the bunch.
Bog standard, very traditional, Cadbury’s selection box. I always remember getting one of these as a kid. These are available in just about every supermarket this year and you’ll find them for about £2. Bargain! Perfect for those little cousins or nieces and nephews.
£2.50 from Asda, but again, available pretty much everywhere. I think I’d prefer this to the bog standard Cadbury’s. What about you?
I’ll admit, I didn’t know Haribo selection boxes even existed, maybe I just hadn’t been looking, but I’d definitely choose this rather than a chocolate one. £2 from Asda. I have the Haribo advent calendar so I’d be a fan of this.
4. Fox’s Mints
Exclusive to B&M – I thought this was a rather different type of selection box, at least that I’ve come across anyway. Lots of different types of mints, and absolute bargain at £1.99
5. McVities Family Circle Biscuits
Now you’re talking. Who doesn’t love a biscuits selection box though? You can get this for £3 in Tesco, I’m sure other places will do it cheaper the closer we get to Christmas.
My mum every year gets me and Tazmyn a box of these M&S biscuit selection boxes and my sister and her boyfriend a box too. They’re just the best. Quite pricy at £15 a box but you can’t beat Marks and Spencer really can you? Has to be done.
