BIG News: Burger King has made our summer dreams come true with the launch of a frozen slushy.

And, to make this news even more exciting, their slushy is made from Fanta.

Now, frozen beverages are usually reserved for American customers only, with us Brits having being cruelly deprived of the delicious frozen goodness to accompany our Whoppers. But now, our time has come.

Burger King

The Frozen Fanta Strawberry is now joining Frozen Coca Cola as another refreshing choice for iced-drink fanatics.

The latest addition is available to order both in-restaurant and through the drive-thru, and will cost £2.29 for a regular and just twenty pence more, £2.49, for a large.

The new drink joins three new cheese and bacon burgers on BK’s menu, which you can view for yourself here.

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.

ALDI

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.
