12 things that are now acceptable to eat for breakfast


IT’S CHRISTMAS AND you know what that means: our ideas of what constitutes a breakfast have been thrown out the window. There are no rules anymore. You can eat a deep fried Mars bar if you like and nobody will judge you.

Here are some acceptable Christmas breakfasts.

1. Garlic bread

If not now, when?

2. A Selection Box

The one time of the year that a Fudge bar constitutes a breakfast.

3. Celebrations

I hear that a few Bountys technically counts as one of your five a day. Coconut and all that.

4. Biscuits


5. Ferrero Rocher

Because you’re worth it.

6. Thai crisps, guacamole and hummus

Sure look, it’s practically vegan.

7. Chocolate torsades

“Will I have porridge or a gooey chocolate pastry? Gooey chocolate pastry all the way, thanks.”

8. Pringles

“F**k it, it’s Christmas.” – everyone’s attitude to breakfast right now.

9. Terry’s Chocolate Orange

If you’re not having a Terry’s Chocolate Orange for breakfast, you’re not doing Christmas right.

10. Cheese and crackers

It’s healthier than chocolate, right? RIGHT?

11. Prosecco

*clink clink*

We have a cracker of an Aussie Prosecco to keep you all refreshed through what is set to be a scorcher of a Christmas! From winemaker Dr Brian Freeman in the Hilltops region of NSW. The vines for this wine were planted in 2011 - so are still relatively young but have thrived so far in the cool climate of the Hilltops. After harvest, half the grapes were fermented in barrel & the other half in stainless steel before blending & a secondary fermentation in steel vats. Minimal amount of dosage (sugar) at bottling to maintain a dry style of wine. The resulting wine is dry, with ripe pear, lemon/citrus character & a fine creamy mousse. Delicious! #wine #sparklingwine #bubbles #prosecco #hilltops #aussiewine #christmas #christmaswine #festivewine #festivebooze #winetime #wineoclock #instawine #instabooze #winestore #winebar #elsternwick #caulfield #ripponlea

12. Mince pies

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, mince pies are the *ultimate* Christmas breakfast.

Merry Christmas everyone!
