1. M&S All Butter Cookies

Even though it’s called ‘All Butter Cookies’, you can find 10 unique flavours in this range! Those who like chunky and gooey chocolate chip cookies will love these. Becareful when handling them, though! They’re really crumbly and the edges fall apart easily. From Pistachio & Almond to Belgian White Chocolate, you’ll be spoilt for choice. One pack has about 10 cookies, so you can go all out and go wild!

2. M&S Shortie

Shortbread biscuits are one of the UK’s favourite tea time snacks. And now it can be yours too! These pair well with an unsweetened tea (or Teh-O, if you’re like us!). These are great for the afternoon nibbles and have a relatively long shelf life too!

3. M&S Rich Tea Biscuits

As it’s name would suggest, these are tea biscuits. But not just any tea biscuits! These have malt and barley in it so the taste is a little more richer than most. These biscuits are more dense and thick but they’re perfect for a quick snack. Just beware of the pieces getting stuck in between your teeth!

4. M&S Digestive Biscuits

If you're looking for a biscuit that does it all, look no further than these M&S digestives! It has that flawless malty flavour, that’s super addictive! These timeless treats are always popular with a strong cup of tea. And they’re ideal for dunking and (to no one’s surprise) are a generational favourite item. They're a classic for all the right reasons!

5. M&S Viennese Swirls

A light taste of butter with a hint of vanilla? That sounds yummy right about now! These Viennese Swirls are brittle because they’re butter cookies. They’re the kinds that we’re used to eating growing up. Pour yourself a cup of warm tea and enjoy these tasty iconic treats.

6. M&S Yoghurts

Maybe you’re looking after your gut health… Or maybe you just want to indulge in some creamy goodness! M&S Yoghurts are delicious and come in unique flavours, like Rhubarb, a red stemmed but green leafy veggie (have you tasted that before?) and much more! Their yoghurts are definitely delicious and are of a different consistency than what we’re used to, but we mean that in a good way of course.

7. M&S Vegetarian/Vegan Chocolates

There are too many varieties that we can’t possibly list them all! ?Any chocolate lover will understand the struggle of picking just one chocolate bar for M&S. If you’re not sure if its Muslim-friendly or not, check the back of the packaging for the green highlighted words that say “vegan” or “vegetarian” and you’re good to go!

8. M&S Tubs of chocolates

The assortment of chocolate tubs M&S offers will spoil you for sure! You can choose from nougats, chocolate bon bons and much more. The best part is that these tubs are HUGE and are perfect for sharing, storing in your snack pantry or just munching on whenever!

9. M&S Rice Cakes

When we think of rice cakes, we’d immediately think of a dish much like the Korean Teokbokki. But when you’re talking about M&S Rice Cakes, you’ll be introduced to a crispy snack! You can eat the crunchy, light but super addictive round treat at any time of day. Spread on some peanut butter, cream cheese, chocolate, (maybe even sambal), or you can even eat it as it is! Did we mention that its a healthy alternative when it comes to snacking?

10. M&S Tea

All this snack talk must be making you feel a little parched. ? We think a spot of tea is in order! M&S has a selection of delicious flavoured and classic tea bags that you must try. Try their berry or breakfast teas for early morning tea sipping sessions. Or maybe you enjoy loose the leaves? You can brew your own tea with M&S’ tea boxes and make it as strong or as mild as you’d like!

11. M&S Cold Presses and Juices

It’s always humid in our tropical climate, so why not quench your thirst wit M&S cold pressed juices and lemonade drinks? It’s refreshing and very tasty on a hot summers day. Grab a chilled one from their fridge after you’re done shopping at M&S’ other sections and you’ll see what we mean!
