McDonald’s is giving away free milkshakes this Thursday

What an offer…

Jamie Roberts




It’s bad news for January diets, as 2020 seems to be providing us with a whole load of delicious yet unhealthy bargains.

And McDonald’s seem to be the main culprits, as the company is offering a whole load of freebies throughout January.

So far we’ve brought you news that the fast food chain was doing 99p Big Macs and Vegetable Deluxes, as well as free McMuffins and cheese melt dippers.


Now they’re giving away free milkshakes and Coke Zeros via their app, with customers able to choose between all flavours of milkshake – vanilla, chocolate, strawberry or banana – subject to availability.

You can also grab a Coke Zero if you’re trying to cut down on the sugar – both the Coke and milkshake offers are available on medium size drinks, and you can only choose one of the two.

The deal is available from 11am on Thursday, January 16th, and you can only redeem the offer once.

To get your hands on these Maccies offers you need to download or access the app and purchase the food or drink via it.

The rest of the month’s offers are yet to be announced, so keep your eyes peeled…

This brand new pink gin flavoured cake serves 18 and looks absolutely incredible. 

If you’re a big gin fan you’re going to love this new addition to the Asda bakery section, a four-tiered pink gin flavoured cake. 

There are four tiers of classic Madeira sponge layered with raspberry jam and a gin flavoured sugar soak. The cake is then topped with vanilla flavoured bright pink frosting.

And to top it all off, there are edible gin decorations including white chocolate stars and miniature gin bottles. 

The cake will set you back £12, and will serve up to 18 slices of delicious gin flavoured cake. Be warned though, each serving comes with a chunky 239 calories and 14g of fat. 

The product description reads: “Get the party started with gin flavour soaked Madeira sponge, covered in sweet frosting and edible decorations. Suitable for vegetarians.”

Aldi selling new biscuit spreads that taste just like Lotus Biscoff

Take my money!

Calling all Biscoff fans (which seems to be everyone), as Aldi has released some new spreads that tastes just like it for a fraction of the price. 

The newly launched Grandessa jars of biscuit spread come in two forms, crunchy and smooth just like the original Lotus Biscoff.

While the original Lotus Biscoff spread comes in at around £2.30 at Tesco and Sainsbury’s, Aldi’s new spread is just £1.69 a jar, almost half the price of the original. 

Shoppers say they can’t taste the difference between Aldi’s spreads and Biscoff, with one person on the Newfoodsuk Instagram page writing: “Tried it! exactly the same taste as biscoff! really good!”

It’s also reported to be vegan friendly! The product does come with an allergen warning that ‘may contain soya and egg’, however. 

Pretty much everyone and their nan are buzzing about this new product release and I suspect everyone will be eating right out of the tub for the rest of lockdown.

If that’s not enough Lotus Biscoff news for you, they have also recently launched brand new Biscoff Sandwich Cookies in the UK. 

The cookies are filled with delicious Biscoff cream in 3 flavours; original, vanilla and milk chocolate.
