Awful service. Left it a week to send me a three-word message "out of stock". No attempt to explain nor apologise and left me no time to find an alternative before xmas. Truly shocking.

Lovely soft, slightly sweet, fruity panettone. I am amazed that it is possible to make a vegan one. I made it into a vegan bread and butter style pudding and it worked really well, you really couldn't tell the difference between this and a non vegan one. I am impressed and will be buying another next year. I just wish they were sold year round!
