B&M is selling gin and vodka jam for £3 – here's the best place to buy booze infused spreads

The bargain retailer has started selling a boozy jam and marmalade range, and they include flavours such as lemon and gin as well as orange and vodka.

Whisky fans might also want to try the marmalade jars packed with orange and whisky as well as raspberry and whisky.

The 454g jars cost £2.99 each and B&M says they are perfect on scones or hot, buttery toast.

As with any spreads, they're not the healthiest treat around and the boozy range at B&M is no exception.

The orange and whisky is the 'healthiest' of the lot as it contains 258 calories compared to 300 calories for the lemon and gin jam.

Meanwhile, the raspberry and whiskey contains 263 calories compared to 289 calories for the orange and vodka jam.

Alcohol-infused spreads is a pretty new phenomenon, so it hasn't yet hit the traditional supermarkets in the UK.

But if you're really craving a boozy twist to your toast in the morning, you should head to alternative supermarkets or shop online.

In the box below we've made a round-up of some of your options, with prices from 99p up to £9.99.
