Tesco has become one of the first major retailers to unwrap its Christmas range for 2022, which includes a host of sweet and savoury new bakery products.

There are new additions to the retailer’s party food range, free-from line-up and dessert offering.

Novelty shapes make frequent appearances in desserts, with wreaths and crackers among those on display. When it comes to flavours, the retailer has kept to the classics with chocolate, caramel and coffee featuring heavily while the party food line-up takes inspiration from international cuisine.

Here are some of the highlights of Tesco’s Christmas range:

Tapping into the flavour of the moment – blonde chocolate – this dessert is made by sandwiching a baked caramel and white chocolate ganache cheesecake between chocolate sponge. The whole thing is topped with chocolate ganache before being finished with bronze dusted shortcake balls and festive chocolate present decorations.
