Eagle-eyed shoppers have spotted a brand new Galaxy caramel truffle on supermarket shelves and they look absolutely delicious. 

Now that August is over, it’s officially the season for hibernation, including eating silly amounts of chocolate. 

Luckily there’s plenty of new choccies on the market to chose from and gobble up Augustus Gloop style. 

@helenjtea over on Instagram shared her sneaky find of Galaxy truffles on the shelf in Morrisons, adding that they come in two flavours, caramel or milk. 

Helen wrote “Caramel or milk chocolate – which @galaxyuk truffles would you choose? Loving the NEW caramel truffles – they have the delicious truffle filling with a layer of caramel on top for extra indulgence! These were a new find in @morrisons today.”

Galaxy has described the new truffles as ‘Galaxy milk chocolate with a smooth caramel and velvety truffle centre’.

I bet you can’t wait any longer so here’s the link to get your hands on some. They’re even on offer for three gift boxes (212g) for £10, usually a box is £5 – what a bargain! 

You can also get a 206g box of Galaxy Orange Truffles at Tesco, with a ‘smooth orange flavoured filling’ for £5.

If you’re after trying some of the other new chocolates that have launched, what about Cadbury’s orange chocolate buttons and fingers?

There seriously must have been something in the air at Chocolate HQ because that’s not the only chocolate orange moment.

Terry’s released a White Chocolate Orange and Toblerone even brought out the classic bar with an Orange Twist.

Cadbury’s also added Orange Twirl back to their roster too.

If all that isn’t enough chocolate, wanna see what Dairy Milk have up their sleeves for Christmas? Head here

Spinningfields is set to gain an exciting new addition in the form of a Thai restaurant specialising in ‘Thai tapas’ and cocktails.

Giggling Squid initially started life in the basement of a tiny cottage in Brighton back in 2002 with the aim to serve ‘simple, rustic, fresh Thai food’ in a selection of small plates made for sharing.

The restaurant’s owner Pranee grew up on the banks of the Mekong River, visiting the local markets everyday with her mother at 5am, where she’d see ‘huge fish splashing in water tubs, transparent shrimps, an endless variety of herbs and vegetables’.

Following its opening, Giggling Squid has experienced massive success and has since opened over forty restaurants in various locations across the country.

And now, in its first proper venture up North, Giggling Squid will be coming to Manchester, where it will take over a vacant venue on Hardman Square, opposite The Ivy.

There will be a number of tasty items up for grabs on its Manchester menu, including starters made for sharing like Phuket Mussels, Samui Zingy Prawns, Salt & Pepper Squid and Chicken Satay.

There will also be a menu dedicated to the humble Pad Thai as well as the standard mains menu, which will be split into three categories; Stir Fry, From the Water and From the Land.

Also on the menu will be a huge range of unique cocktails, many of them with a distinctive Thai twist. Highlights include the Thai-spresso Martini with coconut coffee liqueur and toasted coconut flakes, and the Me Time Margarita made with muddled ginger and lemongrass and a curry-salt rim.

Giggling Squid’s Manchester site is set to open at some point in the new year, so make sure to follow them on Instagram for news and updates.

NEW OPENING: A dedicated chicken wing restaurant has launched in Manchester

There’s a new chicken wing spot in town…

Manchester's Finest Group

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, BBQGarlic 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. 

Wing Dash is open now at Hatch, but can also be ordered for delivery via Uber Eats and Deliveroo. Head over to the Wing Dash Instagram page for news and updates.
