Low-sugar and sugar free treats this Christmas
If you’re thinking of cutting back on refined sugar this Christmas, it may not be as as hard as you think. Christmas no longer has to be sugar-filled to feel festive, thanks to these super-tasty treats. Here’s our selection of guilt-free festive goodies.
Belgian Chocolate, naturally sweetened with Stevia
Christmas and chocolate go together like gin and tonic. Fortunately, Belgian chocolatier, Cavalier, has mastered milk, dark and white chocolates that are naturally sweetened with stevia. They are smooth, rich and moreish too.
Another traditional stocking filler saved by the natural sweetness, stevia. Tuck into this bag while watching the Queen’s Speech.
Simpkins Sugar free Real Citrus Chew
If chewy sweets are your thing, then Simpkins has got you covered. These real citrus chewy treats are made with natural colours and flavours and are also sugar free.
Sparkling White Wine (Brut)
Make a toast with this dry sparkling white wine. It has the same sparkle as your favourite fizz but is non-alcoholic with only naturally occurring sugars. Great for Christmas dinner and served with cheese.
Perry Court Sweet Apple Crisps
These scrumptious sweet apple crisps are a new, natural and healthy snack made from sweet Cox Orange Pippin Apples grown in Kent. Thinly sliced and air dried, these crisps have crunch.
Luxury Mixed Nuts with Cornish Sea Salt
Packed with protein, fibre and essential fats, nuts are one of this season’s best buys. A golf ball-sized portion makes a vitality-boosting snack and contributes a mix of valuable vitamins and minerals.
No added sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies
No sugar certainly doesn’t have to mean no cookies. Loaded with delicious chocolate chips, these crunchy snacks are made with no added sugar, preservatives or colourings and go perfectly with a midday cuppa.
Popular for its range of deliciously raw wholefood bars, Nakd has taken inspiration from classic British treats. Their bars are made with nothing but fruit, nuts and natural flavours and sugars. The perfect in-between snack.
Breckland Orchard Cloudy Lemonade
Treat yourself to Posh Pop, a classic zingy lemonade made with naturally occurring fruit sugars, and no added sweetness. It packs quite a punch.

We couldn’t miss this special find from our festive list. Jam-packed with sultanas, raisins, prunes and dates, like a traditional pudding, but with no added sugar, the perfect end to a Christmas feast.
