Get creative with pound cake, pizza and juice this Christmas
Check out FairPrice products for your holiday party
Let this coming festive season be the most delicious and creative one yet, with savoury indulgences and sweet treats being at the top of the must-eat list.
You will realise how easy it is to turn seemingly normal and familiar products into something Christmas-y, using fun ideas that will impress your guests - and perhaps leave them wanting seconds.
Transform FairPrice Housebrand's Pound Cake 300g ($3.55) into a gorgeous dessert with some sprinkles or fresh fruit for a splash of colour.
Alternatively, melt white chocolate in the microwave by heating it in 30-second intervals - stirring after each interval - and then drizzle it all over the pound cake in a zigzag pattern.
Already comforting when eaten on its own, this all-day delight comes in four different flavours - Vanilla, Chocolate, Mocha and Blueberry - and is halal-certified too.
The next time you and your family or friends are settling indoors for a Christmas movie marathon, whip up a pizza for sharing, such as the FairPrice Housebrand Low GI Thin (340g) or Thick Crust (2 x 160g) Pizza ($6.95 to $10.95).
Free of trans fat and halal-certified, the wide-ranging options are Ratatouille, Beef Bulgogi, Tuna Miso, Spinach & Mushroom, Mexican Chicken and Tom Yum Chicken.
Don't feel guilty tucking in as this range is the Healthier Choice, with a low glycaemic index and higher in wholegrains. It is also lower in sodium and suitable for diabetics.
To make your Christmas dinner a little more fun, turn your pizza into the shape of a Christmas tree. It makes an even better prop for that perfect Instagram shot, and the children will not be able to resist.
A Christmas party is not complete without a mocktail to wash down the holiday eats.
Mix Sprite, ice and a juice, like the FairPrice Housebrand Bottle Juice 2L ($3.15), which comes in Lime (made with freshly-squeezed lime juice and calamansi juice as well as lime concentrate) and three other flavours rich in vitamin C - Fruit Punch, Pink Guava and Orange With Sacs.
Though simple and foolproof, this no-effort mocktail is unbelievably addictive and takes less than five minutes to make.
To turn it into a fancy fruity treat, add frozen raspberries into the concoction.
These products are available at all FairPrice stores and FairPrice Online (www.fairpriceon.com.sg).
The treats do not stop there.
This December, FairPrice will be setting up sampling booths and is offering shoppers a sure-win lucky spin with every $20 spent on participating brands in a single receipt.
