What do we think of this then?

Christmas dinner is one of the greatest meals we have all year, and when done right it’s the stuff of legend.

But there’s one classic festive food item that’s guaranteed to divide opinion like nothing else – well, maybe Marmite can cause equal love/hate.

That’s the humble Brussels Sprout, those little green balls of veggie goodness that inspire both hatred and visible anger from a large portion of society.

If you are on Team Sprouts then you’ll love these new offerings from Tesco – battered Brussels Sprouts Bites (and if you hate them, this might be enough to turn you).

The bites are coated in parsley batter and breadcrumbs and come in a 260g portion, complete with cranberry dip.

According to one happy buyer, going by the name ‘A Tesco Customer’: “Bought from the Christmas range, I think they are really nice ….”

So what are you waiting for? You too can be as happy as A Tesco Customer with one simple sprout ball…

’90s kids will love this…

WantTheTrend.com & ASOS

Groovy Chick is back and I’ll be honest, I’ve never been happier.

The brand from 30 years ago, made popular in the late nineties and early noughties, is back and it might just be saving 2020.

Those famous shades of pink and purple are gracing our eyes again and at least a quarter of the population is getting serious flashbacks to their childhood bedroom. 

You can pay tribute to the Grooviest Chick of all each night in a brand new snuggly pair of PJs. 

The set of PJs that feature the Chick herself about a million times, plus yellow daisies and pink love hearts, come in sizes Small to XXL on wantthetrend.com.

They’ll set you back £19.95 and are complete with front and back design. Plus they’re 100% cotton so you know you’re going to be a comfy chick.

If you’re ready to get a bit more Groovy in your wardrobe, you’ll be pleased to know that Daisy Street the high street brand has collaborated with them to create a whole range of t shirts available on ASOS.

There are two brand new t-shirts available, one green that features the Groovy Chick lying down for £19.99 and a second white one with a Groovy Chick back design for £21.99. 

A Twitter user shared the ASOS T-shirts stating: “i thought… i’d never see her again. but here she is”.

The resurgence of nostalgia has got everyone pulling out their old lunch bags, pencil cases, photo albums and one person has even shared a picture of them in Groovy Chick rollerblades.

One person is even upcycling their old Groovy merch into scrunchies. We really love to see it.

It was the height of fashion and everything else is a flop…
