If there’s one thing everyone in Manchester can agree on, it’s that you can’t beat a good brew.
Mancunians know their way round a decent cup of tea, so this new PG Tips advent calendar is absolutely perfect for us.
It contains 48 tea bags – that’s two brews a day (as well as the extra ones you’ll get from the 1st) – and features a range of different types of tea.
If you want to get your hands on one of the limited edition calendars it’ll set you back £7 from Sainsbury’s, although you’ll have to go in-store to grab one.
The brew-based advent treat was spotted on popular Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, where it quickly racked up the likes.
Even PG Tips themselves spotted the post, writing in the comments: “So glad to see you recommending this! The calendar contains 48 tea bags and has 24 doors. The idea is to provide you with two cuppas each time so that you can share. As we often say, cuppas taste better together!”
They continued: “The calendar contains 8 different PG tips including PG tips Original, The Tasty Decaf, English Breakfast, Camomile, Peppermint, Raspberry, Earl Grey, Green Tea. You can find it at selected Sainsbury’s and from today on Amazon too. Drop us a DM to check if this is available at your closest Sainsbury’s.”
So what are you waiting for? Get yourself down to Sainsbury’s then stick the kettle on – it’s officially brew time.
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!
