Christmas shopping for food over the festive period is always something I would rather not partake in, the supermarkets are overcrowded with mad women buying excess bread and milk because the shops will be shut for a few days whilst we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and if I could give the whole food shopping thing a miss, without a doubt I would. Hoping that when I come home from my final day at work the food fairy might have just looked at me with pity and filled my fridge with some wonderful delights. Well she almost did, except she is a he and my better half decided that he would do the food shopping as a surprise, arriving home at the same time he ... Read the complete review

*** REACH FOR THE STARS*** <> Lebkuchen Stars by Sainsburys are an item from their delicious seasonal range. Along with their Lebkuchen hearts, Sainsburys bring this traditional German recipe to England for us to savour, and enjoy at Christmas time <> <> Lebkuchen Stars <> The Iced stars are a delicious treat to serve up at Christmas. They look in keeping with the time of year with their star shape, and white glossy appearance. Sat on a plate, with sprig of Holly, and a red and gold napkin, they look very seasonal indeed.

I remember the first time I was introduced to lebkuchen. It was whilst visiting family in Switzerland in late 1990. I don't know exactly why the memory should be so imprinted on my memory; possibly because lebkuchen isn't generally easy to find in the UK, with the exception of around Christmas. As part of their seasonal range around this time every year, Sainsbury's offer own brand Iced lebkuchen Stars. Every year, I fail to resist the offer, but the British weather fails to help remind me of that trip to Switzerland, as it steadfastly refuses to snow year after year. Lebkuchen has been around for a long time, having been recorded in Germany as far back ... Read the complete review

Perhaps this is a bit unfair of me to review this product, being of German origin, but it really annoys me what supermarkets pass off as lebkuchen. -What are Lebkuchen?- A spicy, nutty, chewy biscuit popular in Germanic countries around Christmas time. They keep forever, so can be made well in advance, usually in November. Swiss lebkuchen tend to be slightly drier than the German version. The main spices are ginger and cloves, and the main nuts used are almond and hazelnut. The biscuits are very lightly iced, and occasionally alcohol (usually Kirsch) is added to the mix for a bit of a kick. They are often confused with ... Read the complete review

Germans always get it right when it comes to food. When most are snacking on Galaxy and Pringles galore (especially at Christmas time) i'm here with my little pieces of gingerbread heaven..and here's why. While Sainsburys aren't the best i've ever tasted (you'll have to delve into your nearest Lidl/Aldi for the proper stuff, and even those pale in comparison to homemade/christmas market delights) they are certainly very good. They're not as spicy as general Lebkuchen but enough to get the senses tingling. The icing is just enough to balance it out and while the bags aren't as big as i'd like, it's probably for the best to protect your stomach from these ... Read the complete review
