Kellogg’s launches new strawberry & white chocolate Coco Pops made here in Manchester

It’s made at the Kellogg’s factory in Stretford

Kellogg’s is launching a brand new product in time for Valentine’s Day – Strawberry & White Choc Coco Pops.

The bright new cereal creation is made here in Manchester as well, at the Kellogg’s factory over in Stretford.

The popular cereal brand’s new pink Coco Pops will combine the flavours of white chocolate and strawberries, turning your milk pink at every bowl.

Following the success of the White Choc Coco Pops released back in 2019, which saw more than three million boxes sold in the first six months, Kellogg’s decided to have a go at another limited edition variation.

Kellogg’s reduced sugar in its Original Coco Pops by 40% back in 2017, and they say the new pink Coco Pops will have 30% less sugar on average than other chocolate flavoured toasted rice cereals.

But even though the strawberry and white chocolate cereal will contain no artificial colours or flavours, Kellogg’s promises it will still turn the milk pink.

Kellogg’s

Kellogg’s has been operating in Greater Manchester since 1938, when it opened the doors to its first UK plant, based in Trafford Park, which is now Europe’s largest cereal factory.

The company recently partnered with the Manchester-based family-owned jam and peanut butter manufacturer Duerr’s to create a brand new Crunchy Nut Peanut Butter.

Harriet Oakes, activation brand manager from Kellogg’s, said: “We are thrilled to launch new Strawberry & White Choc Coco Pops, it took over 50 recipe trials before we achieved the tastiest mix of strawberry and white chocolate that turned milk the perfect pink.

‘’When we launched White Choc Coco Pops in 2019, they sold out in just a few days so we’re hoping Coco Pops fans will be just as excited to try the new flavour.

“We’re sure kids and grown-ups alike will enjoy bringing a bit of pink to their breakfast.”

The new pink cereal will set you back £2.99 for a 480g box and will be available at all major supermarkets from next Friday, February 12th, for just 12 months.

Morrisons selling a draught beer machine that lets you pull your own pints at home

Who needs the pub anymore?

Morrisons

You can now bring the joys of the pub into the comfort of your own home with Morrisons’ new draught beer machine.

Throughout last year’s lockdown, the long-suffering beer drinkers of Britain were having to resort to bottled beer from their fridge which, while simply ‘making do’, they couldn’t quite live up to the reputation of a crisp cold pint from the local boozer. 

Because nothing quite compares to ice cold draught beer, does it?

Anyway, while being admittedly a little late to the party, Morrisons has answered the prayers of many by launching their very own draught beer machine, perfect for pouring cold pints from your very own home.

Featuring an integrated cooling system to achieve that pub-esque coldness, this nifty little machine is designed to fit any five litre keg, so all you’ll need to do to get it up and running is attach the beer – that unfortunately doesn’t come included – and pour away to your heart’s content.

There’s also a removable drip tray included with the machine, so you don’t have to worry about perfecting your bartending skills.

Plus, you can control the gas to determine how much fizz your pint will have with just a touch of a button.

The pump is only on sale for a limited time and stock will be subject to availability, especially as Father’s Day looms this weekend.

Sadly, you can’t purchase the new beer pump online at Morrisons so you’ll have to head in-store to pick up one for yourself – use Morrisons’ store locator tool here to help you find your closest one.

Happy bevving (responsibly, of course)!

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.
