Cadbury’s Mini Eggs have been given a festive makeover just in time for Christmas

A taste of Easter at Christmas…

Published

The festive season is well and truly upon us which means one thing and one thing only: an abundance of Christmassy chocolate.

Yep, there’s something about this time of year that makes the sweet treat taste just that little bit better so, of course, chocolate manufacturers have been coming out in full force to make Christmas that extra bit more chocolatey. 

Just last month, Lindt made its ‘luxuriously thick’ hot chocolate available in the UK for the first time ahead of the festive season, while Cadbury brought back it’s overwhelmingly popular Neapolitan hot chocolate, which makes for the perfect winter warmer with cream and marshmallows.

And now, Cadbury has gone that one step further by giving an iconic Easter treat a very Christmassy makeover – introducing, the brand new Christmas Mini Eggs.

Much like the original Cadbury Mini Eggs – which are usually only available during Easter – these chocolate eggs are made up of a hard candy shell but, instead of the middle just consisting of hardened Cadbury milk chocolate, the new festive version has bits of broken up candy canes incorporated, too.

It sounds a little too good to be true, doesn’t it? 

Well, I’m afraid I have a little bit of bad news; the festive Mini Eggs are sadly only available to purchase online, so you won’t be finding them knocking about in your local news agents any time soon.

GB Gifts is currently flogging 190g bags of Cadbury Candy Cane Mini Eggs for £9.99 – a small price to pay for a massive bag of Christmassy and chocolatey goodness, if you ask me. 

Head over to the GB Gifts website to get stocked up.

You can now buy hot water bottle covers designed specifically for your feet

Layered socks, be gone!

Amazon

Now that winter is in full swing, Amazon is selling hot water bottles with built-in pouches especially for your feet.

Okay, it’s no secret that hot water bottles are a God send throughout the winter months for everyone but, for those of us who feel the cold more than others, they can be a necessity.

So it is fantastic news that someone has invented a hot water bottle cover designed especially for feet.

Amazon

Priced ajust £16.55, the ‘heated foot warmer’ contains a compartment big enough for a 2L hot water bottle as well as a large pouch for you to slip your feet into to keep them nice and toasty.

The product’s description even claims to stay warm for a couple of hours, so if you suffer from icy cold feet in bed, the hot water bottle will stay warm enough just to see you off to sleep. 

And the online reviews speak for themselves; one happy (and very warm) customer wrote: “I have struggled with bad circulation and icy feet for a long time. Thick socks and other things did not do the trick. This product solved my cold feet problem in a matter of minutes! Extremely soft and comfortable and very easy to use.”

Another customer described them as ‘life changing’, writing: “I use it with woollen socks and the HWB stays warm enough for a couple of hours. Absolute luxury!”

Amazon

Though this isn’t the only new hot water bottle revolutionising the market at the moment; back in October, a hot water bottle ‘pouch’ that straps around the waist went viral for it’s ‘miracle’ cramping relief.

Amazon’s description of the product, which comes with a cute koala covering, highlights how it will also provide relief for those suffering from health conditions such as arthritis, pulled or strained muscles and headaches, as well as both hot and cold therapy.

B&M is selling a hanging egg chair especially for your cat

Because our cats deserve only the best this Christmas

B&M has pulled out all the stops this winter with the launch of its new hanging egg chair designed especially for cats.

Now, anyone who has owned a cat will know that they deserve (and expect) nothing but the very best; so what better way to show them your love than with a luxury hanging egg chair?

B&M took to social media to reveal their revolutionary new product, writing: “You’re all fans of our sell-out egg chair – so now we’ve launched a new version…. For cats!

“This rattan effect egg chair is in stores soon (some lucky people have already picked one up!) so don’t miss out! Who’s feline the need to pick this up?!”

Putting awful cat puns to one side, the chair, which is priced at £55, has already proved to be a massive hit with shoppers online, with the post racking up thousands of comments and reactions across various platforms within just a few hours. 

One social media user commented: “Oh, I must have that for my cats!”, while another tagged a friend, saying: “I don’t mean to influence you, but wouldn’t Peanut look cute in one…”.

The chair doesn’t seem to be available on the B&M website yet and no set release date has been announced, so it’s worth keeping an eye out in your local branch and on the website in the next week or so – because our cats deserve only the very best.

This comes after Aldi sent shoppers into a frenzy earlier this year with the launch of its very own wicker egg cat bed, which came as part of their new Eco Pet range.

The cat egg chair was made from hand-woven natural wicker, was hung from a strong metal frame and was, as you can imagine, too cute for words.

You can get baubles of your favourite tea and condiments for your Christmas tree

You’ll either love them or you’ll hate them…

Marmite

If you’re resenting the idea of digging out your mums’ handed down baubles for another year, the unlikely hero Marmite may just be able to put your woes to bed.

The distinctively flavoured spread – which has been dividing opinions across the nation since the dawn of time – has unveiled its Christmas range which includes a number of admittedly bizarre condiment-themed baubles. 

There are four different baubles to choose from – a personal favourite of mine is the PG Tips bauble, which resembles a very small and very cute box of PG Tips teabags.

Other designs include a miniature Marmite bauble, which you’re guaranteed to either love or hate (sorry) and a Colman’s Mustard bauble, for all those who love the yellow stuff. 

Or, if you’re more of a mayo kind of person, you can purchase a bauble replica of a jar of Hellmann’s Mayonnaise. Picture that up on the tree. 

And if you still need a bit of convincing, 100% of the net proceeds made from the unique baubles will be donated to the Trussell Trust – a UK charity working to stop UK hunger and poverty.

So not only will your new baubles give you something to talk about with the cousins you only see once a year, but you can feast upon your turkey content with the knowledge that your money is helping others.

Now that’s the festive spirit. 

The baubles are limited edition and will be available to buy in a set of four for £25 on the Marmite website from December 1st.
