Christmas has come early in Coles supermarkets across the country, with holiday desserts officially available to shoppers as of today.

The supermarket giant has stocked shelves with the love-them-or-hate-them fruit mince pies as well as other Christmas-inspired desserts including an 18-month matured pudding, the "Choice recommended" Christmas pudding as well as a new blackcurrant and apple pie for shoppers to try.

"We've been working hard to bring a timely festive bakery collection to stores early to help raise the spirits of those Australians who need it most," Coles Category Manager for Bakery Rosie Anderson said.

"We're confident mince pie fanatics will enjoy our first drop of pastries with the traditional and alternative berry options sure to tantalise the tastebuds."

Coles said more than one million Christmas mince pies were sold in September last year and this year's range is available from today from $2 at stores nationally.

Fellow supermarket giant Woolworths also confirmed to nine.com.au they will be releasing some of their Christmas range this Wednesday.

"With Christmas a few months away, we know many of our customers love getting a taste of what's in store for the festive season ahead," a spokesman told nine.com.au.

"Some of our customers like to purchase products early and have them stocked away to help spread out their Christmas spend.

"Others like to taste test products to ensure they hit the spot for their big Christmas feast.  "As the impact of the pandemic continues, many customers will be looking for ways to manage their budgets this Christmas and we want to help them do that.
