Heinz Beans – Valentines Day Ketchup & Chocolate Truffles
This Valentines Day, Fortnum & Mason have partnered with Heinz to create a crazy new product. Mixing tomato sauce and chocolate, they have certainly done the unexpected!
Made completely by hand, these 9 truffles come in limited edition heart-shaped packaging to add a classy touch. The box includes milk, white and dark flavoured truffles containing chocolate mixed in with Heinz tomato sauce. This is the strange treat that we never knew we needed!
The idea behind these truffles is that chocolates and ketchup are two of the UK’s most loved food. Therefore, the companies decided to combine them both to create the tastiest product possible.
Heinz have stated that: the tangy tomato flavour from the ketchup bursts through the silky creamy rich ganache with a sweet finish.
The perfect gift for the Heinz tomato sauce lover in your life!
McDonald’s New Deal: 2 free hot drinks after buying 5
A change in 2020 means that McDonald’s are now allowing customers to collect stickers for hot drinks on their mobile app. Also, only five stickers are required to claim this deal, opposed to six which was the old deal.
However, you can still collect the tokens from the physical cups which will gain you an extra hot drink. This will save you between £1.78 and £3.56 which is a great offer!
This is available for all hot drinks on the McCafe menu at a regular size. Clever customers have been taking advantage of this deal and are saving money on their coffees everyday.
In addition to this, McDonald’s have also released vegan products such as the veggie dippers which are a permanent addition to the menu. This is a real benefit to the company as these are very popular amongst healthy eaters and specific diets.
Let us know if you use the McDonald’s free drinks trick!
Costa has rewarded us with a new addition to the January 2020 menu. A ruby hot chocolate that is perfect for Instagram has been launched and customers are loving it.
The drink is made from ruby cocoa beans, which are the ingredient that make it naturally bright pink in colour. It also has a fruity taste, which just adds to the uniqueness of the hot chocolate.
In addition to this beautiful drink that is priced at £3.35, Costa have also added three more hot beverages to their menu all Coconut flavoured;
Latte – £2.55
Flat White – £2.70
Hot Chocolate – £3.35
Although these drinks are also popular, customers seem to have taken to the pink drink the most. This is likely due to it being so aesthetically pleasing to share online to social media – giving Costa more publicity.
We think this hot chocolate is a dream for posting online and can’t wait to see more of it!

New York’s Bandit opens a ‘mobile-only’ coffee shop
There is a new way to purchase your morning coffee in New York at The Bandit Coffee shop. This is a cafe where customers will not be served by an employee, instead they will download an app and place their order on their phone.
The main idea of Bandits’ coffee shop is to make it the most convenient experience for their customers. People can order via their app, be notified when it will be ready and where to pick it up. This can take the stress out of rapidly trying to place an order at the till. These busy customers are now able to purchase with more ease.
This concept can be hard to grasp by people who are passing by the shop and don’t completely understand it. However, Bandit have multiple employees on the floor who are happy to assist anyone who may be confused.
Another benefit to this unique coffee shop is that the prices are kept lower than usual. Instead of the drinks being as high as $7 or $8 in competitor businesses such as Starbucks – many of Bandits drinks can be around $2.
Bandit are also experimenting with a $20 subscription deal that allows the customer to get an unlimited amount of $1 drinks for a month.
This new shop is bound to be a success, Bandit is extremely likely to fulfill many New Yorkers’ coffee needs!
How long will the UK customers have to wait until this genius mobile-only coffee shop idea is launched over here?
