Tesco is selling mince pie cookies and Christmas pudding shortbread this year

And it's only the latest of many festive treats to launch as we head for Christmas.

The 180g tubs of the buttery treats are available online and in Tesco stores, as spotted by Instagram account Kev's snack reviews.

The Christmas pudding shortbread is packed with currants, candied orange peel and cinnamon.

Meanwhile, the filled mince pie cookies are packed with just what you would expect from a mince pie – a fruity mincemeat filling – and dusted with fine sugar.

But keep in mind that as they are Tesco's Finest brand, the cookies are pretty expensive at £4 per pack.

For example, each pack of filled mince pie cookies contains only eight cookies, meaning you pay £0.50 for each one.

Or if you're really craving the festive treats, you can pick up any two for £7, giving shoppers a £1 discount.

But it's still more expensive than Morrisons' mince pie cookies, which are only £1.75 for a pack of 200g.

Tesco has not yet clarified how long the cookies are going to be available for, but shoppers can probably expect them to stay around until Christmas at least.

For those who are worried about calorie amounts, The Sun has asked Tesco for this info but we've not yet heard back.

If you prefer the real pudding before the shortbread, the Queen ordered thousands from Tesco last year.

More recently, Aldi brought back its sloe gin mince pies and they're available right now.

Meanwhile, Morrisons has launched a new mince pie product flavoured by Black Forest and we're really intrigued.
