It comes with absolute NO shock whatsoever that the Bounty has been voted the least favourite chocolate in a box of Celebrations.
Nearly 20,000 people voted in LADBible‘s Twitter polls which, in a series of knock-out rounds, put Bounty up against Snickers for the broken crown of least favourite Celebrations chocolate.
The first tweet on August 10th asked the question: “If our friends at Celebrations were thinking of shaking up the chocolate mix, which one should get the chop?”
Bounty was put up against Galaxy, Galaxy Caramel and Maltesers so it quite obviously stood no chance.
More than 18,000 people voted, with 63.7% of them in favour of chucking Bounty’s out of a Celebration box, straight up into space and right off this planet where they belong.
Second place was Galaxy Caramel with 16.4% of the vote, followed by Galaxy with 10.9% and obviously Maltesers came in the last place of the least disliked chocolate with just a nine per cent vote – and overall was voted by default as the most popular chocolate.
The second poll questioned which of the remaining chocolate was the worst and should be put up against Bounty to fight for its survival. Snickers, again unsurprisingly, came out as the most hated chocolate with 37.5% of the vote.
Milky Way received 25.4%, Twix 19.3% and Mars Bar 17.8%.
The final pole put Bounty up against Snickers and saw the coconut chocolate lose with a whopping 69.4% to get rid.
Almost everyone agrees with the outcome too! One person has heard my cries for the last few years and wrote ‘sack them both and bring back the Truffle!’ – preach it Dave, preach it.
A couple of strange folks put their 2p in because they ‘don’t get everyone’s beef with bounty’. We’ll say no more about this group of people.
Celebrations ended up getting involved themselves sticking up for the coconut lovers, explaining that they ‘don’t want any of them to go’.
So what do you think, are the general public right to get rid of Bounty? Let us know!
Salford Rum launches new honeycomb, caramel and butterscotch rum to celebrate worker bees
Can’t wait to try this!
Salford Rum Company has teamed up with Manchester-based beekeepers to create a new honeycomb flavoured rum.
The Salford Rum Company, created in 2018, is a luxury local premium rum created by rugby-league-playing high school pals James Harrison and Tommy Gaughan.
Created to celebrate the history, heritage and people of Salford Docks throughout the late 1800s and early 1900s – which became the third-largest port in the UK – Salford rum takes inspiration from the rums of the Caribbean.
The brand new Salford Honey Rum is distilled and bottled in the shadows of the old docks and created as a tribute to Salford’s Worker Bees.
Created in partnership with The Finest Honey, a beekeeping collective that sells surplus honey and sources honey from rescue bees.
The floral honey adds a sweetness coupled with intense golden spiced liquid rum to create a well-balanced flavour with honeycomb, caramel and butterscotch notes on the palate.
Presented in a rose gold foil print with a honeycomb motif designed by Dave Draws, the bottle also dons a worker bee on the seal and cap.
Salford Rum co-founder James Harrison, said: “To coin a local phrase, we are absolutely ‘buzzing’ to launch the Honey Rum to our product portfolio.
“This third expression has been a long time coming and we have taken time to ensure it hits the right note with the UK’s growing number of spiced and premium rum drinkers.
“It’s great to partner with The Finest Honey, too – it’s a fantastic organisation that sells surplus honey from a range of regional producers, and the link-up is testimony to how we work in Manchester and Salford – collaboratively and for the greater good.
“Our products have developed a cult following regionally and are starting to gain a following nationally, too.
“We look forward to seeing how much our fans love the new Honey Rum, and how they use it creatively to make amazing cocktails and incredible creations at home.”
The preorder for the second batch was limited to 200 bottles, each individually numbered and they have already sold out.
Keep an eye on their socials for the restock!
You can now get super cheesy beef fried Birria tacos with dipping gravy in Manchester
These sound amazing!!
A brand new taco pop-up is set to open in the Northern Quarter serving up delicious fried corn tacos with dipping gravy.
Taking over The Koffee Pot on Oldham Street, Birria Brothers Taco will be serving up traditional Mexican corn tacos – the first of its kind available in Manchester.
After doing serious numbers on social media – particularly on TikTok – over the past year people have become obsessed with this Mexican delicacy.
Made using an eight hour slow-cooked stew, with shin of beef or goat available at Birria Brothers, the tacos are fully dunked in the stew and then fried to absorb all that delicious flavour and leave a crispy flavoursome taco.
The fall-apart juicy beef is topped with Oaxaca cheese, a Mexican cheese similar to Monterey jack with a string cheese texture.
The tacos are served with a pot of rich spiced consommé on the side so you can dip the whole thing in even more delicious meaty gravy.
Birria Brothers will be popping up in The Koffee Pot on Saturday March 6th to bring Birria tacos to the Mancunian masses.
