Morrisons now sells McVitie's gingerbread and Christmas pudding flavoured digestives

MCVITIE'S has launched two new festive flavoured digestive biscuits and you can buy them in Morrisons.

The family favourites now come in Christmas pudding and gingerbread flavours to dunk in your tea.

The snacks come in 250g packets with an RRP of £1.50 a pop – the same price other special McVitie's digestive flavours, such as cherry bakewell and marmalade on toast.

But the sweet treats are more expensive than original McVitie's digestives, which will set you back £1 for a 400g pack.

Of course, you could save even more cash by switching to supermarket own brand digestives.

For example, Asda's own brand version costs just 40p for 400g.

How to cut the cost of your grocery shop

SAVING on your shop can make a big difference to your wallet. Here are some tips from comparison site Money.co.uk about how you can cut the cost of your shopping bills:

  • Write yourself a list – Only buy items that you need. If it isn’t on your list, don’t put it in the trolley
  • Create a budget – Work out a weekly budget for your food shopping
  • Never shop hungry – you are far more likely to buy more food if your tummy is rumbling
  • Don’t buy pre-chopped veggies or fruit – The extra they’ll charge for chopping can be eye watering
  • Use social media – follow your favourite retailers to find out about the latest deals
  • Be disloyal – You may want to go to different stores to find the best bargains
  • Check the small print –  It’s always worth checking the price per kg/lb/litre when comparing offers so you’re making a like for like decision as a bigger box won’t necessarily mean you get more
  • Use your loyalty cards – Don’t be afraid to sign up to them all. They all work slightly differently – work out what bonus suits you better and remember to trade in your points for additional rewards

We couldn't find any other brands doing these festive versions of the classic biscuits though so it looks like you're going to have to fork out a bit more for them.

McVitie's says the snacks will be stocked in Asda, Morrisons, Nisa, Co-op, Spar and on Amazon, but so far shoppers have only found them in Morrisons.

But the supermarket is stocking them for a more expensive £2, according to eagle-eyed biscuit lovers.

"These are definitely on the Xmas food shop list," one customer wrote on a post in the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group.

"I'll have a case of each!" another wrote.

We couldn't find them stocked online so it looks like you'll need to head to your nearest supermarket if you want to get your hands on them.

You can find your local Morrisons using the store locator tool.

If you're already feeling festive, you should checkout Sainsbury's Christmas food range and it includes a pigs in blanket stuffing wreath.

Meanwhile, Morrisons is doing a four for £5 deal on festive chocolates, such as Quality Street, Roses and Heroes.

One savvy mum has revealed how she saves hundreds on Christmas food by starting in September.
