M&S has released their own pre-made versions of Aperol Spritz just in time for summer!
With the weather looking up, there’s one thing we’re all thinking of and that’s Aperol Spritz. It’s the perfect summer drink, fresh, dry and citrusy it’s everything you need to cool down in the blazing heat of British summer.
Luckily, if you’re a bit lazy like me you can get that Friday sunny feeling even easier with M&S’ version of the summery drink pre-made, taking away all the faff.
M&S’s Aperitivo Spritz is made with completely natural colours and flavourings and has a perfect alcohol amount at just 8% abv.
The 250ml can will set you back just £2 so it’s also a bargain, and perfect for a picnic!! The 750ml bottle (which me and you both know you’re going to opt for) costs just £5.
Sam Pembridge, M&S Drinks Developer said: “This is not just any cocktail, this is one of the UK’s favourite cocktails, given the M&S magic treatment and available for our customers in a can! Our Aperitivo spritz captures the classic bittersweet taste, ready mixed and perfect for summer evenings. I pour mine over ice for maximum enjoyment but sipped straight from the can is delicious too.
“Our cans are iconic with our customers, we’ve launched many great quality, exceptional value cocktail favourites including the infamous Passion Star Martini and we think this new Aperitivo Spritz is going to join the ranks of these must-have cocktail cans- treat your taste buds and give it a try.”
Iceland is now selling Chicken Smileys for the ultimate nostalgia tea
Everyone will remember potato smileys from their younger days – or maybe you still have them as a sneaky tea occasionally (I definitely do).
They went great with chicken nuggets, so what better way to upgrade the humble smiley than by replacing the potato with chicken?
That’s exactly what Iceland has done, releasing some limited edition Chicken Smileys to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
Iceland’s Chicken Breast Smileys are 100% chicken breast breaded in the traditional smile shape, and will set you back £2.00 for a 356g bag.
Shoppers are loving the concept too, as the news of the launch was shared on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, with one person commenting: “Finally something good to come out of 2020”.
Richard Walker, managing director at Iceland Foods, said: “Our 50th year is a great excuse to celebrate with some of our dishes from over the years, we’ve worked our way through the archives and selected the very best that our customers will love.
“Throughout the rest of the year we’ll be celebrating in different ways and we’re looking forward to bringing the party into our stores and customers’ freezers the way we know best – with great food.”

Shoppers are loving this new £1 lavender pillow spray from Poundland that ‘helps you sleep’
I need this!
Poundland has launched a lavender-scented pillow spray and everyone is raving about how relaxing it is.
Lavender, an anxiolytic, increases levels of calm and reduces agitation – it’s something we all need to cover our house in at the minute.
Many other lavender sleep sprays exist on the market but often, they come with a heavy price tag. Neom’s ‘Perfect Night’s Sleep Pillow Mist’ will set you back £20 for just 30ml of the relaxing spray.
And Lush’s ‘Twilight body spray’ is also £20. Poundland’s £1 ‘Land of Nod’ spray is being hailed as the perfect dupe!
A savvy shopper shared the find on Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group on Facebook.
Lauren wrote: “Got this spray today and it smells exactly like the Lush ‘Twilight’ spray I usually buy for £20!
“Definitely want to try more of the range, they had shower gels, bath bombs, soap bars all sorts, well worth a look.”
The post has racked up over 2,000 comments with many people excited about the find.
The range also features Shower Gel, Bath Powder, a roll-on Essential Oil, Bath Bar plus Bath Fizzers for the ultimate relaxing evening.
Everything in the range is all a pound of course!
A lot of people are saying it is great for kids and others are pointing out that the spray is perfect at the minute as many people are struggling to sleep in the current situation.
One commented: “I will try anything. Three hours sleep last night.” Another simply added ‘Need this!’.
Sadly, you can’t shop online at Poundland so you’ll have to grab it in store.
