Yorkshire Tea is launching a brand new toast and jam flavour brew

This is interesting…

Alex Watson



Yorkshire Tea

If you’ve ever wanted to drink your breakfast but don’t fancy a smoothie, how does a jam and toast flavour tea sound? 

Best served with a splash of milk, this new flavour from Yorkshire Tea is both fruity and comforting and could be the new breakfast staple. 

Toast & Jam Brew is sourced and blended from natural ingredients, and will be exclusively available at Asda from September 24th. 

Tea Innovation Manager at Yorkshire Tea, Kate Halloran, said: “Toast & Jam is a lip-smacking smattering of toasty, jammy loveliness.

“Perfect for mornings, it is a strong breakfast blend with all of the loveliness of jam on toast without the crumbs!

“We wanted to create a tea that will send people into their day with a spring in their step and a smile in their soul.”

Adding: “This new brew has been a long time in the making and I absolutely can’t wait for everyone to try it. We hope you love it as much as we do.”

A 40 pack of tea bags will set you back just £2.29 – a small price to pay for the taste of breakfast all in one mug. 

Yorkshire Tea tweeted the news this morning and followed up with a ‘FAQs’. They wrote ‘it’s a real tea that tastes like a real tea but also toast and also jam’, adding ‘what sort of jam? Not telling’.

They also said ‘it’s well nice m8’.

The new flavour has certainly divided fans of Yorkshire Tea. 

One user wrote: “you are becoming more polarising than Brexit… can’t see it working for me.”

Another added: “I’m sorry I love your tea but this is just weird . Tea has to be dark and muddy in colour and taste like tea”.

One simply wrote ‘I do not know how I feel about this’ and to be honest, me too. 

Will you be trying the new flavour?

This all looks so good!

This Northern Quarter restaurant and bar has launched new dishes on the menu and it includes plenty of fried cheese goodness.

As the weather gets colder and the nights are darker, there’s only one thing to save us all – CHEESE! 

The Pen & Pencil has launched several new dishes on the menu that include just that – and they’ve even fried the cheese to make it even better. 

The dishes include the New York Mac & Cheeseburger (£10.50), a huge mac and cheese pattie that is deep-fried and served with crispy bacon, jalapeno mayo and iceberg lettuce in a sesame seed bun.

There’s also the Jefferson Mac & Cheese Lava Cake Salad (£12) which features a show-stopping mac and cheese ball, coated in breadcrumbs and deep-fried, all served on a bed of dressed mixed leaf. 

Once you slice this baby open, you’ll see all the gooey cheesy goodness ooze out.

Finally, there’s the Deep Fried Cheese & Prosciutto Sandwich (£8). Like a normal cheese toastie but covered in breadcrumbs and then deep-fried. 

It’s seriously naughty – but it’s winter now isn’t it?! 

Finest Media

The new dishes aren’t all cheesy though. There’s a brand new Baked French Toast Casserole (£9) on the brunch menu. As well as Winter Squash Ratatouille (£9) and Homemade Potato Roti on Pea Soup (£8.50), both served with poached eggs.

And there’s also a spicy Nduja Potato Hash for £9.50.

For new main course dishes, you can grab a delicious Salmon with Sesame Couscous (£14), Monkfish with Beetroot Lentils & Clams (£14), BBQ Ribs (£14) and a New Yorker Chicken (£13.50).

If all that wasn’t enough, there are some brand spanking new sides too, including Cheese Fries (£4), Spinach & Feta Rolls (£4.50), Halloumi Fries (£3.50) and some incredible Cheeseburger Spring Rolls (£6).

You can book in at The Pen and Pencil here.

Asda is now selling Lindt chocolate spread in two flavours

I need this!

Alex Watson




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!
