What Food Makes You Think of Christmas?

I cannot have a Christmas without Walkers Shortbread. I don't buy it anytime during the year, its purely for Christmas and reminds me of Christmas anytime i see or taste it. It's the one constant in our Christmas feast.
I asked a lovely bunch of ladies what food that they love to eat makes them think of Christmas. The answers varied between sweet and savoury. The most popular food mentioned was trifle!

Everyone has their preferred trifle. I like mine simple... jelly with sponge fingers, custard and fresh cream. I don't need anything else however i would never reject any trifle offered.
See links for recipes: Chocolate Trifle, Strawberry Banana Trifle, Raspberry Cheesecake Trifle

Of course there was the traditional Christmas desserts.. pudding, rum balls & mince pies. I don't like any of these so more for you!

The more fruity options of cherries, pavlova and mango

Along the lines of biscuit treats....wafer cigars, gingerbread and shortbread

Savoury choices were roasts of all kinds... turkey, ham (most popular) and pork. Also prawns were mentioned too
I'm not much of a drinker but i do enjoy a drink on Christmas.... seems many others do with egg nog, cold beer and champagne being popular choice

Tell me.... What food that you love to eat reminds you of Christmas???

I'll give you a bit of french traditions here! My best choice is always foie gras with champagne. And the bûche for dessert.
