Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, and true to form, Roy has been busy playing Cupid in our bakeries.

Pop in and pick up a vanilla cupcake with mini speculoos hearts, or try our range of Valentine’s biscuits – there’s a whole host to choose from. Our Hot Lips biscuits make their return and with them come our “Piggy in Love”, a vanilla pig with white and pink icing, as well as heart-shaped vanilla biscuits with cardiogram-shaped icing, and more.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

There’s nothing we love more than the Christmas season here at GAIL’s and true to form, we’ve been baking for months in anticipation. Our mince pies are back, loaded with sweet, spiced fruit encased in soft, crumbly pastry and topped with a dusting of icing sugar. We’re also baking mini Christmas cakes: jam-packed with dried fruit, and steeped in Amontillado sherry.

Look out for all kinds of sweet and savoury biscuits – from lightly spiced Speculoos biscuits in festive shapes, to indulgent chocolate and cranberry cookies. And for all those Christmas drinks parties, we’ve got bags of savoury nuts and seeds, toasted and flavoured with herbs, light spices and maple.

Merry Christmas!


Christmas is on its way and so are our Christmas treats. They’ll be in bakeries from 13th November. Ho, ho, ho!
