Aldi is launching a giant 28oz steak just in time for Father’s Day.
The bargain supermarket, famous usually for it’s random middle aisle offerings, has put all our Father’s Day woes to bed with their ‘Godfather’ rump steak, a chunkier cousin of their ‘Big Daddy’ steak.
The mammoth cut of meat weighs in at a whopping 28oz and is perfect for the whole family to feast upon – though, if he thinks he’s up for the challenge, it will make for the ideal Father’s Day treat for one.
And if, like me, you’re a little worried about your steak cooking skills, Aldi has teamed up with the Culinary Director of Gaucho Restaurants, Mike Reid to share tips on how to cook the perfect steak.
Mike, who is also a regular on BBC1’s Ready Steady Cook, said: “I would always recommend cooking a steak such as Aldi’s Godfather Rump over fire – the combination of wood and coal gives a unique, smoky flavour to meat.
“Anyone in need of some pointers should follow my simple hints and tips; a fail proof guide to getting restaurant standard steak at home – every dad’s dream!”
He has also offered some expert advice on how to cook normal-sized steaks from home – did you know that steak needs to be cooked at room temperature to ensure it cooks evenly? For this, you simply need to remove the meat from the fridge around an hour before cooking.
He also pointed out that different cuts (rump, sirloin, fillet, etc) require different cooking methods – according to Mike, the higher the fat content, the higher the initial heat you need to cook it on. If you have a leaner cut like fillet or rump, you want a gentler heat to cook over as you don’t have as much fat to be rendering.
The supermarket’s rare offering is priced at a very reasonable £7.99 and is available in stores from June 17th – just in time for the big day.
Lindt’s ‘luxuriously thick’ hot chocolate is finally available in the UK
Winter? Lindt have completed it
Some fantastic winter news for you all to sink your teeth into: The famed Lindt hot chocolate is finally available to purchase in the UK, and it is just as delicious as we’d all imagined.
The Swiss chocolatier has always ranked highly in the opinions of chocolate-lovers here in the UK but, sadly, its hot chocolate blend has always been notoriously difficult to get hold of.
Well, until now it has been, that is.
Yep, British chocolate-lovers can now get their mitts on Lindt’s hot chocolate, a blend made with only the finest of their Swiss chocolate.
The chocolatiers wrote of the UK launch of their iconic drink: “Cosy up with a mug of rich, velvety Lindt Hot Chocolate. Luxuriously thick and full of flavour, just add your preferred choice of milk to create the ultimate silky-smooth winter warmer.”
And, even better yet, the drink can be enjoyed cold if you’re fancying something a little more refreshing next to a warm open fire.
I can imagine there’s one question burning upon your lips right now… Where can you buy your own tub of Lindt hot chocolate?
Well, Amazon are the ones dishing out the goods for £4 a tub which, in my honest opinion, is a small price to pay for chocolatey winter comfort.
Get your own here.
‘Flatulence-filtering’ bedding is now a thing to mask the smell of farts during the night
This could be a lifesaver for some couples…
If you or your partner (because let’s face it, it’ll definitely be them) has a real issue with farting in the middle of the night, this product might be the one for you.
Flatulence experts Shreddies – not the cereal brand, I promise – has unveiled it’s latest fart-combatting product, the ‘Flatulence Filtering Duvet Cover’, which promises to completely eliminate those unsavoury fart smells throughout the night.
The duvet cover includes an inbuilt carbon panel to trap flatulence gases before they escape through the bedding – all you have to do is simply insert your own duvet into the cover and your gases and aromas will be discreetly filtered as you sleep.
The porous carbon ‘attracts and traps flatulence odours’ and, worry not, because it is simply reactivated when washed.
Shreddies also sells a ‘Carbon Undersheet’ to accompany the revolutionary duvet cover if you’re in need of double filtering – the sheet is designed to fit snugly around your mattress and, like the bedding, absorbs all those nasty odours while you sleep.
A spokesperson for the company said: “Both products use the same technology found in our award winning underwear, the highly porous carbon acts as an adsorbent which attracts and traps flatulence odours and is simply reactivated when washed.
“These brand new products are the latest in a long line of successful odour eliminating products that Shreddies brand is known for including their patented underwear, undershorts, cushions and odour eliminating bags.”
The bedding sets don’t come cheap, however; the duvet cover is priced from £180 dependent on size while the under-sheet starts at £110 – but I suppose an odourless night is priceless in the long run?
These products have come following the success of Shreddies’ famed ‘Flatulence Filtering Underwear’, which do exactly what they say on the tin; filter out the smell of farts.
The company also stocks flatulence eliminating cushions, bags and gifts, just incase you know someone who can’t take a hint.

Aldi launches glitter snow globe gin with gold flakes for Christmas and it’s £6 cheaper than M&S version
All your sparkly gin dreams are going to come true…
Just when you thought Christmas 2021 couldn’t get any better, Aldi has unveiled their latest alcoholic beverage offering: a glitter globe gin liqueur.
Now, despite it only being October, Aldi has already been knocking it out of the park with its festive offerings; just this week, shoppers have been delighted by the return of the iconic halloumi pigs in blankets – chunks of halloumi wrapped in bacon incase you missed the memo.
But now, the budget supermarket has really ramped up the Christmasy vibes with the arrival of its glittery snow globe gin liqueur.
And guess what? It’s a whole £6 cheaper than Marks & Spencer’s version.
The retailer is aiming to repeat the success of its glitter globe gin range that was launched in the spring with flavours such as elderflower and peach.
The production description for this range read: “Lovingly distilled in only small batches by The Infusionist, this mouthwatering peach and elderflower flavour gin liqueur with 23-carat gold flakes has flavours of fresh peach and floral notes of elderflower and juniper. Try cold and neat or with premium tonic and ice.”
But in the new festive range, shoppers will be able to choose between clementine or sweet blackberry flavours, both of which come in a light-up bottle infused with flecks of edible twenty-three-carat gold leaf – it doesn’t get much more Christmassy than edible gold, does it?
The 70cl bottle will be priced at £13.99 and will be available to buy both in-store and online from November 8th.
