  • Just Eat creating tasty Christmas decoration for curry fans as Brits prepare to put the tree up
  • Busiest day of the year for Christmas tree decorating is on 8th December
  • Onion bhajis most popular takeaway starter during the Christmas period

December 2018: Its official, 2018 is the year of weird and wacky Christmas decorations. Just Eat has just raised the stakes and is creating the first-ever line of Bhaji Baubles which are made with fresh ingredients, fried in a light batter, and coated in edible gold or silver.

As the countdown to Christmas begins, most households across the UK will opt to decorate their tree and deck the halls on the second Saturday of December - which is this Saturday the 8th*.

Despite the abundance of festive food such as mince pies and yule log, it seems Brits’ enduring love for Indian cuisine remains strong throughout December and into Christmas.

The onion bhaji has been one of the best selling starters on Just Eat in 2018, giving the takeaway app the idea to celebrate with the creation of Britain’s most tasteful Christmas decoration yet.

With news that sales of weird and wonderful baubles such as unicorns, sloths and even aubergine emojis are on the rise**, Just Eat decided the iconic and much-loved onion bhaji also deserved a place on the tree. The company has created a guide to make the festive decoration and restaurants on Just Eat can request it ahead of Christmas.

Graham Corfield, Managing Director at Just Eat said:

“Our customers love ordering onion bhajis over the Christmas period. It used to be the tradition to put up chocolates, candy canes, and gingerbread biscuits on the tree, but with the launch of Bhaji Baubles, we’re moving edible tree decorations into the 21st century. We hope people can soon grab a bite straight from the tree while showing off their impeccable festive decorations. “
