How can I buy Christmas desserts from M&S? How long are they available for?
M&S will be distributing a selection of its Christmas desserts in-store all over the country.
Alternatively, you can order them online by booking a slot or by arranging a home delivery.
The menu came out earlier this year, with the highstreet store releasing it all the way back in September.
While this may seem premature, it’s given customers plenty of time to get accustomed to these delicious treats.
M&S is yet to confirm when it will be removing the desserts from shelves, but it can be expected that it’s sometime in the early New Year.
