A finance guru has revealed the top Christmas food buys under $20 with ham, pavlova and mangoes high on the list.

Queenie Tan, who is known online for her money-saving videos, visited Coles employees to ask for their top tips on festive season snacks.

They were happy to give their best tips with one worker claiming ham ‘tastes better at Christmas’ and at $8-per-kilo is worth snapping up.

Another told Queenie that Australian mangoes have come into their own this year and ‘the value is absolutely fantastic’. 

One festive worker, wearing a Santa hat, told Queenie that luxury gingerbread and butterscotch pudding should be high on the list for any Christmas party, with both tagged up for just $14.

Queenie found the pavlova on her own, and noted it had been marked down to $5.40 just in time for Christmas. 

The worker at the register said people should also consider the $2 Christmas donation – which provides ten meals to Australians in need this festive season.
