Some eagle-eyed shoppers have spotted the festive red tubs of Celebration’s making an appearance in Tesco stores already. 

The one thing we’re all looking forward to this year is the festive season. Filled with good food, amazing chocolates and enough booze to forget the year. 

The Instagram account ‘kevssnackreviews’ posted a picture of towers of Celebrations boxes in Tesco with the caption ‘looks like the Christmas tubs are appearing in supermarkets now’. 

If you’re a keen Christmas shopper, you can bag these boxes for just £4 in Tesco at the minute! You can also find them online at the same price. 

It turns out everyone is buzzing with some users commenting: “Temped to get out of my pjs and run down to Tescos purely for these beauts”.

Another pointed out just how mental this year has been with the comment:”2020 has no rules. might put might put up my christmas tree Sunday and eat an out of date cadbury creme egg”.

An eager beaver commented that Quality Street tubs are also available in some B&M stores – so keep your eyes peeled! 

With these huge boxes of chocolates back on the shelves and the threat of another nationwide lockdown, we might just have ourselves a toilet roll situation like in March 2020 – but with Christmas Celebrations boxes… in August.

Merry Christmas everyone!!! Too early??

Mana is selling the first Michelin Star burger in Manchester

Will you be trying one of these?

Published

Finest Media

Manchester’s only Michelin Star restaurant, Mana, has launched a new takeaway burger which is available during lockdown.

The Michelin Star cheeseburger is made with a Lake District Farmer’s Belted Galloway smoked beef patty, put together with shin, brisket and rump cap. 

It’s then topped with Mana’s own American-style cheese, made with St Andrew’s Cheddar and Cloudwater beer, placed in a potato and brown butter bun, and finished with Koji and dill mayonnaise, iceberg, and green onion paste.

The burger will set you back £16, and you can also grab some drinks for £5 each if you’re thirsty, including a lime, raw sugar, mint, and cucumber soda, a sorrel and matcha iced tea, and a fermented Banks’ Tomato and oregano soda.

Mana spent the eight days before launching it testing different beef cut ratios, cheese slice thicknesses and woods to smoke the patties, and according to them it’s ‘the best burger we’ve ever had’.

Head Chef, Simon Martin said: “As well as keeping the business afloat and continuing to keep our team’s livelihoods intact, I also wanted this to be a fun exercise.

“As much as I miss our usual setting and the all-encompassing activity it provides, the idea of doing something so familiar for people became a really endearing challenge in the meantime.

“Almost everyone has had a great burger, especially in Manchester where humble foods are commonly elevated, so people will have a comparison to make whilst we’re trying to deliver the best version of something they’ve ever had.” ⁠⠀

The team at Mana chose burgers as it’s a classic comfort food that almost everyone likes to eat, and they have plans to start doing tacos in a few weeks and potentially fried chicken as well (depending how long it takes them to reopen properly).

As a token of appreciation, all NHS staff are entitled to one free burger per order every Wednesday, you will just need to bring an NHS ID on collection.

Numbers are limited to just 100 burgers per day, and are available from Wednesday to Saturday, to collect between 12pm and 4pm.

If you want to grab one booking is required via Tock-to-go, where you can book a slot up to three hours in advance of collection – prepayment is required to minimise contact.
