Winter is well and truly underway, meaning most of us are currently hibernating under as many layers as possible to keep warm.
But what about those times when you’re forced to leave the comfort of your sofa, when you have to actually drive somewhere?
Well, worry no more, as you can now get a heated blanket to plug into your car and make those cold journeys extra toasty.
You can grab a range of heated blankets over on Amazon, from ones starting at the bargain price of £8.28, all the way to the top rated heights of a £24.99 blanket.
The high rated £24.99 offering comes in a black and white chequered pattern, and promises to warm you up in just three minutes – all you need to do is plug it in with the cigarette lighter socket adapter.
The temperature can be adjusted from low to high, meaning you can make things extra toasty on those long winter journeys, and the blanket has a soft, cosy feel.
And it’s getting rave reviews, with one shopper writing: “This is so easy to use and instantly heats up. This will be ideal for keeping the kids warm in the back when we are travelling to see my in laws on Boxing Day as it is a long distance away.”
Another said: “This is so lovely, very soft so you can not feel any wires inside, looks good and working perfectly. Usually my husband like cold air when we are going for a trip and I like hot, so now there is no problem as he can put a cold air and I can use a blanket and be warm.”
Greggs launches new vegan sausage butty and vegan ham and cheese baguette
Good news for vegans
In some good news for vegans, Greggs has announced it will be launching a vegan sausage butty and a vegan ham and cheese baguette.
The bakery chain has introduced vegan products in the past, including the now iconic vegan sausage roll – which caused much debate among the public.
Greggs also has a vegan steak bake on the menu, which is set to be joined by the Vegan Ham and Cheeze Baguette and Vegan Sausage Breakfast Roll.
A Greggs spokesperson told Metro.co.uk: “Over the coming weeks we’ll be trialling our delicious Vegan Ham and Cheeze Baguette and Vegan Sausage Breakfast Roll in a very small number of shops, with a wider launch planned for later in the year.”
This means vegans will soon have the option to grab a vegan breakfast butty and a baguette for their dinner.
The new sausages will be made with Quorn mycoprotein, and the breakfast butty will set you back £1.90.
Meanwhile, the ham and cheeze baguette will set you back £2.95, and will be made with Quorn mycoprotein ‘ham’ and cheddar flavoured vegan cheese slices.
It’s not yet been confirmed which shops will initially trial these two new additions to the menu.
Fingers crossed they land in a Manchester branch soon!
