Mr. Kiplings' Christmas...

Festive offerings from the Master Baker himself! Mr. K and his Christmas goodies!

I was asked the other day why I bother SmartPointing all these Christmas things... my number one reason is, if I'm at someones' house and they offer me a mince pie, slice of cake, choccie or other munchie with a cuppa... I only have to say 'oh that's lovely! Where's it from?' and I know how many points I can use even if I only eat half!' I told you my points are like money!

Today it's another Irish company and their Xmas goodies which I found in my local SuperValu store! A range that's gluten, dairy and wheat free and some are suitable for vegans too! 

Note: To my UK, USA and Aussie followers it's a national rugby song in these parts and these xmas goodies are created in the very spot the song is about!
