McVitie's

If you need something to help get you through the year, then McVitie’s Christmas range might just do the trick.

The confectionery giant has revealed its festive range, and it’s safe to say they haven’t disappointed with their offerings.

The pick of the bunch has to be orange and cranberry Jaffa Cakes, giving a seasonal twist to a stone cold classic, and will set you back £1.20 a pack.

As we have previously covered, there will also be two new festive digestive flavours – Christmas Pudding and Gingerbread – which are guaranteed to get you in the mood for Christmas (these will set you back £1.50 a packet).

There’s also a super special 180 Year Heritage Tin (£8), which has been created to honour McVitie’s 180 years as ‘Britain’s biggest biscuit brand – this will be filled with a selection of chocolate biscuits, cookies and creams.

And that’s not the only selection box to choose from, there’s also the McVitie’s Victoria Collection (packed with 50 biscuits), as well as a Family Circle box (filled with classics like Jammy Dodgers, Chocolate Digestives and Custard Creams).

This year will also see the return of the giant Jaffa Cakes tin, stuffed full of snack packs and shaped like a huge Jaffa Cake (obviously) – this will set you back £5.

If Jaffas are your thing, you can also grab a Jaffa Cakes Pole (just £3), which comes packed with 40 Jaffa Cakes.

These incredible festive treats will be hitting UK shelves from September 21st, and you’ll be able to find them in all the usual places, like Asda, Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s etc.

Ben & Jerry’s release their first ever ice cream on a stick and it looks incredible 

The ‘Peace Pop’ is the first ever ice cream on a stick from Ben & Jerry’s

Published

Ben & Jerry's

Ben & Jerry’s brand new ice cream treat comes on a stick and fans can’t wait to try it. 

The ‘Peace Pop’ is the first ever ice cream on a stick from the ice cream kings, Ben & Jerry’s. It features Fairtrade vanilla ice cream complete with chocolate chips and even a cookie dough-inspired centre.

The whole thing is then coated in smooth chocolate and dunked onto a stick so you can enjoy on the go. 

It’s been described as beneficial as you won’t need to get a bowl, spoon or do washing up. But we all know you just dig right into the tub of B&J’s anyway, so the real benefit is having this while you do other things, like go on your daily allowed walk. 

Ben & Jerry’s

The new ice cream will be hitting the freezers in Co-op later this month, and will be £2.20 each or £4 for a pack of three. 

Flavour guru Josine Nohlmans said: “We know people love our cookie dough like their own family or pets.

“So we reimagined it so they never need to leave home without it. Now they can walk their puppy AND enjoy Ben & Jerry’s.”

If you can’t wait, Ben & Jerry’s released the cookie dough recipe so you can remake the Cookie Dough Chunks at home. Perfect lockdown distraction!

You can now play Cards Against Humanity for free online with your mates in lockdown

Virtual fun is back for the new lockdown

You can now play a virtual game of Cards Against Humanity to help you through the third lockdown.

Unfortunately, as we’re flung into a third national lockdown, virtual quizzes and games look like they might be making a come back. Just when you thought you’d seen the last of Zoom-based organised fun!

The good news is that you can now play Cards Against Humanity with your friends via the internet, in the comfort of your own home, even in your pyjamas if you want. 

It’s super easy to play too and it’s free!

One person in your friendship group needs to head to playingcards.io and ‘create room’ to set up the virtual game.

Then you simply share the code with all the friends you want to play with so you can all see each others moves.

The rules are the same as a real life game of Cards Against Humanity – fill in the blanks of a statement card in the most hurtful, unacceptable and rude way you can. And all have a laugh about it. 

If Cards Against Humanity isn’t for you, or perhaps you just fancy a family game that involves children, you can instead make your own game or play others such as Go Fish, Checkers, Crazy Eights and Match Up. 

Lockdown fun is BACK!
