British Invasion: Target To Carry Iconic Marks & Spencer Holiday Food

Target is offering new and delicious products this holiday season, and they're coming from across the pond. 

Iconic British retailer Marks & Spencer, which has a history dating back to 1884, will offer festive food and beverage products at Target stores and on the Target website for the first time. The two retailers are similar. They both sell home goods, clothing, and everything in between in their respective countries. But M&S is also known for its food halls, where it sells its own brand of products.


Gallery30-Plus Holiday Gifts To Buy Early

Target's website will feature 15 items, all of them festooned in beautiful holiday packaging, including some that light up or play music when opened, perfect for gift-giving. If that sounds expensive, think again: Most items are priced $10-$15, with the costliest selling for $28. 

As for treats, think chocolates and cookies, including an assortment of chocolate caramel balls or caramel-filled chocolate pinecones; Scottish shortbread cookies in a double-decker bus tin; gingerbread cookies in a musical house tin; drinking chocolate mix in a light-up tin; and a chocolate assortment in a musical, light-up box. There are also a few small items for kids complete with Percy Pig, the popular M&S cartoon character. 

Though the products aren't yet available for purchase, you'll be able to buy them all online and in stores starting later this month and through the holiday season or until they're sold out. If you know a British expatriate or Anglophile who would love these items as gifts, don't forget to use your Target card to get that extra 5% off when purchasing.
