Schär’s gluten free festive range has hit supermarket shelves across the UK & Ireland this month. With some delicious treats to be discovered, including panettone and chocolate orange fingers, it’s the perfect time to stock up ahead of Christmas.
What’s more, they are joined by a brand NEW gluten free product launch from Schär – Mini Calzone Bites. These bites are absolutely delicious and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed tucking into them. They would be the perfect addition to any festive buffet spread.
I’ve reviewed the full range for you and have also rounded up stockist information, to make it extra easy for you to find your Schär favourites in the shops. Scroll on down to read more.
I highly recommend that you give these new Schär Mini Calzone Bites a try, they are absolutely delicious and a very moreish snack to enjoy. A pizza dough shell, filled with tomato sauce and stringy mozzarella, they are surprisingly filling and would make a nice light lunch or buffet addition.
As they’re frozen, they’re super handy to have in as a freezer staple. For a quick and easy lunch, snack, side or starter (to name a few uses). Simply bake for just under 10 minutes, until golden and crisp at the edges, then enjoy them warm from the oven.
STOCKISTS: Asda (frozen free from section) and Ocado
I am a big fan of Schär’s panettone, which launched last year. Panettone is a classic Italian festive treat, an enriched bread studded with sultanas and candied peel. A little bit like a Christmassy brioche.
Panettone is probably my favourite Christmas-time treat, so I always try any gluten free ones I can find. This Schär one is the best I have tried – it has a wonderful flavour and texture, like authentic panettone. I love it lightly toasted and buttered!
This Schär version is also the best value gluten free panettone (per 100g) that I’ve encountered this year.
STOCKISTS: UK – Asda, Ocado & Tesco; ROI – Dunns, Musgroves, Supervalu & Tesco
You will find me tucking into many-a-packet of Schär Chocolate Orange Fingers this festive season. My goodness they are very munchable, with beautifully crisp biscuit inside, enrobed in gorgeous orange milk chocolate.
They seemed to sell out really quickly last year, so I am definitely going to be stocking up early!

My daughter’s favourite biscuit, the classic Schär Chocolate Fingers have had a festive glow up and you’ll spot them in their new snowflake and snowman packaging.
Enjoy a couple with a warming hot chocolate or use them for creating festive showstopper bakes. Last year I made this yummy chocolate orange gateaux over Christmas, finished with chocolate fingers and jaffa cakes. It was a huge hit!
STOCKISTS: UK – Morrisons, Ocado, Sainsburys & Waitrose; ROI – Dunns, Musgroves & Supervalu
Speaking of jaffa cake, the Schär Jaffa Cakes have also had their festive make over. And they are fantastic value too.
Enjoy them as an afternoon treat, or use them in baking and desserts. From festive trifles and gateaux, to chocolate orange jaffa cake brownies, they are a brilliant base for all sorts of homemade desserts.

These Schär Lebkuchen are always incredibly popular with my readers each year, loads of you adore them. It’s a traditional German Christmas biscuit, with a cake-liked spice biscuit with nuts and marzipan, covered in dark chocolate.
STOCKISTS: Asda, Ocado & Sainsburys; ROI – Dunns, Musgroves, Supervalu & Tesco
These brilliant little biscuits are one of my favourites. Really crisp and flavoured with cinnamon and spices, they are the perfect festive snack. My kids enjoy the fun shapes printed on them too :).
When not scoffing them direct from the pack, I like to use them for baking and desserts too. Whether as a spiced chesecake base or as the filling for my Spekulatius Gluten Free Profiteroles (next level dessert alert!).
STOCKISTS: Available all year round from Ocado, Spar & Waitrose, plus during the festive season from Asda, Morrisons, Sainsburys & Tesco; ROI – Dunns, Musgroves, Supervalu & Tesco
