And what better way to bring the joy (to our bellies) than with a traditional Christmas ham? 

Luckily for us, a bunch of our local supermarket giants are planning a special deal ahead of Christmas Day, so you’ll be able to nab a mouth-watering festive ham at a bargain price!

Check out below to see what deals your local supermarket chains are dishing out this silly season.

Coles

For the first time ever, Coles is cutting $5 from the price of every Coles Brand Christmas Ham from the meat department until this Sunday, December 12.

Customers planning to be the Christmas Day host with the most can save on showstopping centrepieces like the multi-gold award-winning Australian Crackling Victorian Ash Smoked Rib Rack Roast Ham.

Offering an elevated spin on Coles’ much-loved Crackling Christmas ham, the Rib Rack Roast comes in a unique frenched Rib Rack style to make for easy carving and is topped with a thick layer of decadent crackling.

Sweet with a delicate smokiness, crunchy crackling, and ready for the oven, the Australian Crackling Victorian Ash Smoked Rib Rack Roast Ham also placed top of the chops at both the 2021 Tasmanian Fine Food Awards and the 2021 Perth Royal Show.

As well as this, Coles’ Boneless Crackling Ham and Coles Beechwood Double Smoked Half Leg Ham also recently wowed top taste testers and nabbed several awards.

There’s also the Coles Finest Free Range Triple Smoked Half Leg Ham, which is just one of the RSPCA-approved free-range pork products available at Coles this Christmas.

All Coles Brand Christmas Hams are 100% Australian and made from sow stall-free pork produced by Aussie farmers with no added growth promotants.
