Morrisons is launching a Christmas dinner box for four for £5010/13/2020
MORRISONS is selling a Christmas dinner food box that will feed a family of four for £50.
The supermarket today launched its 16-piece Christmas dinner box that can now be ordered straight to your doorstep during a chosen delivery slot on December 22 or 23.
The box comes complete with a turkey, all the trimmings, goose fat potatoes, festive veggies and pigs in blankets – almost all from Morissons "The Best" range.
For dessert, you can choose from a cheese board and crackers, deep-filled mince pies and a chocolate yule log.
But we added up everything in the box that you could buy individually from Morrisons – be it the same or similar products – and it came to £44.75.
What’s inside the luxury Christmas food box?

While £50 is pricier, postage is included in the deal, meaning that you can avoid the Christmas queues during frantic last-minute shopping.
The tasty treats also come in a specially developed container so that items remain cold and fresh until they reach your fridge.
But if you select less expensive options from Morrisons that don't come from "The Best" range then you could get a cheaper but no-less-cheerful- festive meal.
Aidan Buckley, food to order director at Morrisons said: “We want to take the stress out of Christmas food shopping and give customers the ultimate hassle-free Christmas dinner to enjoy. In a difficult year, this is the simplest way to get your Christmas meal.”
Morrisons began delivering food boxes in March that were filled with essentials like loo roll, pasta and bread for £35.
Food boxes have risen in popularity during lockdown as an easy way to shop if you're self isolating.
Several retailers and restaurants have launched their own boxes as well as Morrisons, including Asda, Leon, and Home Bargains.
It comes as Morrisons unveiled it’s range of 2020 Christmas food last month.
The seasonal selection also includes bite-size mini steak and ale and chicken and ham pies.
We’ve rounded up what else you can expect to find in Morrisons’ Christmas 2020 range.
Meanwhile, Aldi’s Christmas buffet comes complete with mini hotdogs, eclairs and chicken bites while Asda’s festive feast includes spicy pigs in blankets and reindeer crumpets.
