Normally, now’s the time for getting into the summer spirit. But we’ve had a huge head start this year, and it feels like we’ve already had months of opportunities to make the most of the glorious weather. How have you been celebrating so far?
This is one of the best times of year. The sunny days and evenings mean we’ve got all day to head outside and get together with friends and family, planning days out, picnics and BBQs. Summer’s when ‘the more the merrier’ becomes everyone’s favourite phrase, turning up for al-fresco dinners and picnics in the park into chances to see friends and bring yours along, making new connections that’ll last long past the sunset.
This summer, we’re here to help; the BBQs, picnics and dinners in the sun all revolve around eating together, and we’ve worked hard to put plenty of delicious products in store, making food that’s worth sharing. Have you been enjoying any of our summer range already?
Planning a BBQ and not sure whether to go with burgers, steak or salmon? With 3 for £10 on selected BBQ favourites, you don’t need to decide. Make sure you try our Irresistible Herefordshire Beef Burger – it’s not just us that loves it, it’s WHICH? award-winning. Our picnic goodies are 3 for 2 as well; mix and match your favourites and pop them on the table for pre-BBQ nibbles and sides, or grab a selection on your way to lunch in the park.
How many days have there been recently, where it’s too hot to think, everyone’s feeling it, and ice cream is the only solution? Whether it’s lunchtime at work or in the park on your day off, try sharing out a box (or four) of our show-stopping Rainbow Uni-Cones to make everyone’s day. For an indulgent treat, take a couple of tubs of our Irresistible Coconut & Belgian Chocolate Ice Cream to your next BBQ. Cracking through a crumbly biscuit top to reveal a hidden chocolate truffle core, they’re a real talking point and everyone will want to have a taste.
Our new summer TV ad appeared on screens last week – have you seen it yet? The team that created it chose a classic summer setting, a social BBQ, to showcase the different ways people enjoy it. However you build your burger or serve your sausages, summer’s about eating food you love in great company – and we’ve got you covered.
