Lindt’s hazelnut and dark chocolate spreads are hitting shelves in the UK and are available at Asda.
For fans of Nutella, it’s time to up your game with the Swiss chocolate connoisseurs own version of the nutty chocolate spread, that is absolutely delicious.
The creamy hazelnut and dark chocolate flavours are now available at ASDA.
The hazelnut chocolate spread is made with 25% roasted hazelnuts, which, according to Lindt Master Chocolatier Thomas Schnetzler, ‘is more generous than many other spreads’.
It turns out Schnetzler isn’t lying – Nutella is only 13% hazelnut.
Thomas adds that the extra dollop of hazelnut is what adds an ‘incredible flavour’, that when mixed with cocoa creates the ‘perfect blend’.
The dark chocolate spread is also perfect if you’re a fan of Lindt’s signature dark chocolate bars. It’s described as ‘luxurious creation of the finest cocoa’.
The tubs come in 200g pots and will set you back just £4.50. They are currently available online at Asda and in select stores.
It’s safe to say Twitter is buzzing, one added: “Just ate an entire jar of @Lindt chocolate spread it’s soooo good… and no I don’t feel guilty.”
Another wrote: “Sorry #Nutella but this does taste better. Oh-o looks like there might be some chocolate spread wars!”
The spread has been available in Europe for some time now but Brits have struggled to get their hands on jars of the chocolatey good stuff.
Well that struggle is no more – just nip down to ASDA to get your paws on a jar!
NEW OPENING: The Northern Quarter burger joint planting a tree for every meal bought
Fancy doing your bit for the environment while tucking into a Wagyu steak burger?
An environmentally-focussed new burger joint in Manchester’s Northern Quarter is promising to plant a tree for every meal bought.
New kids on the block Invisiburger is a ‘globally inspired, planet conscious and people focussed’ new addition to the city, having recently taken over the second floor of Stage & Radio over on Port Street after success in its flagship site in Liverpool.
And don’t worry, this isn’t your typical run-of-the-mill burger joint (because Manchester has plenty of those at the moment).
Unlike other restaurants of its kind, the team at Invisiburger is on a mission to create a zero waste fast food model, which will ensure that every ingredient they use is utilised from head-to-toe.
They’re also a certified member of the new ‘Sustainably Run Project’, meaning for every bill paid a fruit tree is planted. To put it in a nutshell, you can do your bit for the environment while simultaneously tucking into a banging burger. It’s a win-win!
The menu itself is split equally amongst vegan, Wagyu beef and Krispy Chicken options, each one with different toppings and special extras.
A definite menu highlight is the Surf & Turf Burger, made from a 100% Wagyu beef patty and juicy marinated prawns with house special sauce.
The menu also boasts a selection of tasty small plates, including vegan ‘Invisi-wings, Jalapeno Bhajis, Tiger Prawns with chilli, miso and garlic butter and a selection of loaded fries including Salt & Pepper Salsa Fries and Chilli, Miso & Garlic Butter Fries.
What a selection.
And, on Wednesdays you can get 3 Small Plates for £14 whilst on Fridays between 5pm – 6pm it’s their ‘INVISI-HOUR’ with classic burgers 2-for-1.
Invisiburger is open Wednesday – Friday, 5pm – 10pm and Saturday – Sunday, 2pm – late. Head over to their website for more information and to book a table.
NEW OPENING: A dedicated chicken wing restaurant has launched in Manchester
There’s a new chicken wing spot in town…
Manchester’s favourite urban village Hatch has gained an exciting new addition in the form of chicken wing restaurant Wing Dash.
Wing Dash comes courtesy of takeaway kings Burgerism, whose popularity skyrocketed during the 2020 lockdowns.
Operating from their dark kitchen in Salford, Burgerism became well known and loved for their (you guessed it) burgers, which have even been named as ‘the best burgers in Manchester’ by Mana’s Michelin-starred Head Chef, Simon Martin.
So, of course, we can expect some seriously good things from their latest venture, which takes a primary focus on the humble chicken wing.
Their latest venture sees their iconic Burgerism formula in the form of chicken wings with six options up for grabs; each wing, made from 100% British chicken, is brined for twenty-four-hours to ensure maximum flavour and tenderness.
They’re then coated in the special Burgerism signature coating and deep-fried, before being seasoned with one of six unique flavours including Piri-Piri, Buffalo, Atomic, BBQ, Garlic Parm and Lemon Pepper.
And for those wanting a meat-free alternative (or, like me, for those who just really love a bit of cauliflower), Wing Dash are also serving up their delicious Cauliflower Bites, which are sourced from a family-run farm in Preston available to order in any of the six seasonings.
Of course, there are also fries to be ordered alongside your wing haul, which are prepped fresh every day and topped with a generous sprinkle of chicken salt.
Aldi’s hot chocolate Christmas mug melts return and there’s new penguin and unicorn versions
Aldi has pulled it out of the bag once again…
Some fantastic winter news for you all to sink your teeth into: Aldi has brought back its iconic hot chocolate Christmas mug melts.
In what could be the best timing ever (because it’s now bloody freezing out there), the budget supermarket is now selling the tasty mug melts with two very cute new characters.
This years mug melts feature the familiar snowman design from last year, and the new penguin and unicorn designs, with each hot chocolate melt being available in stores now for just £1.25 a pop.
All you need to do is sit the melts in your mug, add steaming hot milk and watch them dissolve into a wonderfully thick and creamy hot chocolate – perfect for the many freezing evenings we’re all set to endure over the next few months.
The mug melts also come in 100% plastic-free packaging – what’s not to love?! To get your hands on some, you can either visit your local Aldi or visit the Aldi website.
Though this isn’t the only thing Aldi are doing this Christmas – earlier this month, the supermarket launched their annual Christmas advert where they revealed they’d partnered up with Man United star Marcus Rashford to donate 1.8 million meals to families over the festive period.
This years advert, which has taken inspiration from Charles Dickens’ festive classic A Christmas Carol, centres around new character, Ebanana Scrooge, who holds a passionate dislike for Christmas after being rejected by Santa for a mince pie as a baby banana.
Old favourite Kevin the Carrot also returns as the Ghost of Christmas Past and, in a first, Rashford makes a brief cameo as the footballer radish, Marcus Radishford.
Rashford said of his partnership in a statement: “As a family, we relied on the local food bank to get our Christmas dinner. To this day, I remember queuing outside that building with mum, mum feeling embarrassed that she might be recognised. It is with that in mind that I’m delighted to lend my support to the Aldi campaign.
“For many children in situations like mine growing up, there is very little expectation around this time of year; add the impact of the pandemic and the very least they deserve is a Christmas dinner.”
