The best edible Royal Wedding-inspired treats, put to the taste test 

The best Royal Wedding food and drink products
Celebrate the Royal Wedding with food and drink (and collect these pretty commemorative tins for keepsakes)

Tea towels, tote bags and colouring books: have we reached peak Royal Wedding merchandise? Perhaps - but we defy you not to relish this selection of the very best food and drink products inspired by Harry and Meghan, and painstakingly tried and tested by Telegraph writers. 

1. M&S commemorative shortbread tin


This tin contains five elegant, table-mat-like 'petticoat tails', which can be snapped off into triangles - perfect for sharing. Baked to a pale gold, they are pleasingly buttery with a lip-smacking dusting of icing sugar. 

2. Harry & Meghan's Windsor Knot pale ale

£2.25 for 330ml,

"Sufficiently easy drinking to get you through the Royal Wedding", said one taster. It tastes pleasantly of tropical fruit. American hops with British barley grown on the Royal Farms = a perfect union.

3. Gü Royal Wedding Edition lemon and elderflower cheesecakes

£2.25 for 2x90g, Waitrose

This citrusy flavour combination mimics those favoured by the couple (Meghan and Harry’s own wedding cake, of course, is a lemon and elderflower cake baked by Californian, East London-based baker Claire Ptak). It’s irresistibly creamy, with a crumbly biscuit base, and utterly delicious.

4. Walkers limited edition pure butter shortbread


This shortbread is buttery and bitesize. The density is such that each Union Jack-inspired morsel works well for tea-dipping. 

5. Newby Tea Royal Wedding special edition gift box


Speaking of tea, you will at some stage be in need of a brew as you watch Harry and Meghan's nuptials unfold. This selection is presented in a celebratory 'hat box', and includes Jasmine Princess green tea, ginger and lemon tisane and a classic malty English Breakfast.

6. Mr Kipling Bridal Fancies

£1, Asda

These limited edition bridal-white treats will give you a serious sugar fix (best paired with a sip of fizz) at the crucial vow-exchanging moment. Very sweet indeed. 

7. Milly Green Royal Wedding traditional afternoon tea tin

£7.99, Lakeland

A refreshing, pure Ceylon afternoon tea is also a must: this one is light, delicate and golden. The prettily illustrated caddy is one to treasure (there's also a matching biscuit tin containing lemon biscuits and triple chocolate chip biscuits). 

8.  Choc on Choc Harry and Meghan chocolate hearts

£21 for a party set of six,

These miniature chocolate hearts imprinted with the happy couple's smiling faces may seem like a gimmick - but we fell wholeheartedly for the winning combination of white and dark Belgian chocolate.
