We’ve seen many exciting chocolate products drop recently such as; pineapple jaffa cakes, mint maltesers and even heinz chococlate! And now, Bounty has released a biscuit representing their classic chocolate, that has a ‘secret centre’ filled with coconut flavoured cream.

Bounty Biscuits

Bounty Secret Centre Biscuits are currently being sold in Aldi stores for just 89p!

The response from social media is very mixed as it is no secret that this is a controversial treat. With one person saying “Next please” and others not sounding too impressed either.

However, there are happy customers with one saying ” I got them, ate the whole packet in one sitting…..Miss Piggy has nothing on me when it comes to Bounty.” People have also been tagging friends in bounty biscuit posts and sharing their positive feedback.

This new product is bound to raise different opinions as the chocolate is commonly known as the one that gets left at the bottom of the celebrations box! Regardless, we and many others are excited to try this new biscuit and can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

Will you be buying this new biscuit?

Salted Caramel Twix Bars Released – After high demand from customers!

After a long wait, a new version of the original chocolate that we all know and love is here. Hopeful chocolate fans have been tweeting the creators of Twix for months. The people wanted a salted caramel version of their favourite bar, and they got it!

Salted Caramel Twix

The bar is very similar to the original, the only difference is the normal caramel sitting between the biscuit and milk chocolate will be replaced with salted caramel. A new twist to answer the much-needed demands of chocolate-lovers on social media.

Salted caramel alternatives of Kit Kat Chunky and M&Ms already exist, meaning the Twix was obviously next in line to join the trend.

The new bars have been found on sale in Co-op stores by customers, but are only available to buy in the ‘xtra’ version which cost £1 rather than the usual 60p. However, due to the bigger size, it’s a price we can afford to pay!

To make news even better, The Sun has also stated that the new version even comes in at fewer calories than the normal size pack at just 224.

The social media fans who were a key part in bringing this idea to life will be more than pleased. One said: “When will salted caramel Twix be available in the UK, I NEED to know!”

A second also argued: “OK living in a world without salted caramel Twix sucks. @Twix respond or I’ll commit an unspeakable horror.”

These bars are available in most Co-op stores in the UK from here on. Let us know when you get a chance to grab one!

THE HISTORY OF FORTUNE COOKIES

The History of Fortune Cookies

As fortune cookies featured in our Chinese New Year box last month, we wanted to give you more information about these cookies and the history behind them. You may only know these cookies from your local Chinese takeaway or supermarket but there is more to learn about them than you think!

The famous cookie’s origin is unknown, however it is said to have first came amount in San Francisco, America. Nobody knows who invented the iconic fortune cookie idea. Although certain people such as David Jung and Seiichi Koto claim to have created them – it is not known for sure.

The fortune cookies were named as ‘fortune tea cakes’ until World War 2. The ‘tea cake’ brand can relate back to the cookie’s Japanese history as these were traditionally consumed with tea. Unexpectedly, they didn’t come to China until 1989 and were commonly known for being ‘American cookies.’

Each year, 3 billion fortune cookies are made. The largest manufacturer is located in NYC by Wonton Food Inc who produce around 4.5 million cookies per day. They start as round cookies and are folded round the paper fortune whilst they are still soft. Here is a video to show exactly how they are made in bulk.

The vice president of Wonton Food writes most fortunes and has a database and limited number for each. This company has around 15,000 fortunes sent in the biscuits to ensure there is variety and aren’t the same.

We hope you have learned more about background of fortune cookies and enjoyed them in your box last month!

Exciting New App for Ordering Coffee in 2020

The mobile app ‘COFE’ is being described as the new ‘deliveroo’ but for coffee. The app claims to be an “online coffee marketplace” which allows people to pre-order their drinks from their local coffee shops or be delivered to them in select stores.

Mobile app for ordering coffee

The app is being launched in London very soon where it is bound to gain the most success due to demand. This helps busy workers get their daily coffee with ease and save a lot of time waiting for their drink to be made.

‘COFE’ is different from other pre-order services that are provided by companies such as Starbucks or Costa. This is because the app allows orders to be made from a variety of different cafes including boutique coffee shops. So far, almost 40 coffee shops have agreed to work with this app’s early trial in London.

In the UK, the average person buys three coffees each week – this adds up to around £300 per year. However, as Brits, if this helps fuel our day we won’t complain!
