Christmas party season is just around the corner – and revellers are already excited about serving up Iceland’s selection of mouth-watering finger food.
The retailer has won praise from customers over its quirky selection of sweet and savoury treats that can be stored in the freezer and popped in the oven before your festive get-together.
Alongside classics like mini sausage rolls and bite-size pizzas, Iceland is offering rather more unusual delicacies like chicken noodle skewers and prawns wrapped in bacon.

Iceland came under fire last December after it released a Christmas dinner that would feed six for just £22.
Many said it was a godsend for struggling families who couldn’t afford to splash out, or those who have limited time to cook on Christmas Day due to work or family commitments.
However, in comments that have now been deleted, other commenters branded it food for ‘lazy’ people and took issue with the idea of not preparing a dinner from fresh ingredients.
