We’re well and truly into the silly season, and given its a stressful time finding presents, catching up with people, and planning the actual festivities—it’s good to know Woolworths has come to our aid to make things a bit easier at the Christmas table with its range of Christmas hams.

Prices for the hams start at $8.50 a kg, which is the same price as last Christmas, not today inflation.

The Woolworths 2022 Christmas ham range has new options to choose from:

  • Woolworths Gold Glaze & Bake Ham with Davidson & Honey Glaze 840g | A classic Christmas centrepiece. This main features a flavour elevation with the inclusion of a sweet and enticing glaze made with native Australian Davidson Plum puree and Australian Honey. 
  • Woolworths Half Leg Ham | A succulent half-leg ham made from Australian Pork that has been naturally wood-smoked for a rich flavour.
  • Woolworths Gold Free Range Triple Smoked Quarter Leg Ham | Bone-in and naturally smoked with karri wood chips, this free-range triple-smoked quarter leg ham won the Gold medal in the 2021 Royal Tasmanian Fine Food Awards.
  • Woolworths Gold Glaze & Bake Ham with Honey, Fig & Rosemary Glaze 840g | This classic Christmas centrepiece won the Silver medal in the 2022 Royal Tasmanian Fine Food Awards. A symphony of flavours come together in this Christmas centrepiece with hints of smokiness, sweet honey and fig.

“All of our Christmas hams are Australian-made, supported by suppliers such as D’Orsogna, who have been selling to Woolworths for more than 60 years. 

“As Today’s Fresh Food People, we are focused on ensuring we have the best Australian fresh products available for the Christmas table, and that customers can get great value each time they shop with us, which is why products like our Half Leg Ham will be the same price or less than last year.” said Woolworths Commercial Director (Chilled & Bakery), Jason McQuaid.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
