By Gemma Gray, Ice Cream and Desserts Product Developer
This year, we wanted to do something a little bit extra special for all the lovebirds out there. I’m a bit of a romantic, and I love both receiving flowers and enjoying delicious food. That’s why I wanted to develop something really exciting this year – our Strawberry Rose Cones.
The ice cream took a year of research, development and tests before we were able to bring this truly unique product to life. The ice cream petals look stunning and the green cone stems really bring the product together. Inspired by the insta-famous gelato parlours across the world, you can now give your loved one a new kind of bouquet which looks spectacular and also tastes delicious.
Sometimes, nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a home cooked meal and at just £2 for a box of four, these Strawberry Rose Cones are a perfect finishing touch to one of our many Valentine’s Irresistible meal deals for two for £6.
Why not start your night with a succulent Co-op Ranch Steak as part of a candlelit dinner, or maybe you’d prefer our Irresistible Vintage Cheddar Mac and Cheese. Pair your main with a glass of our bubbly Irresistible Prosecco for £8 a bottle to add a bit of fizz into your evening.
Our meal deals all come with a main and either two sides or one side and one dessert. This is the perfect chance to try our devilishly good Irresistible melt in the middle chocolate puddings
If it’s a sweet treat you’re after, we have Fairtrade Chocolate Confectionery including our nets of chocolate hearts or a chocolate bear lolly. And for the true romantics out there, we also have 12 Fairtrade African red roses available just for £10. These beautiful red roses will add a pop of colour to brighten up your special someone’s day and now colleague members can save 50p on our Fairtrade roses through the Co-op app (from Monday 10 February – Sunday 16 February inclusive). Download the app to make sure you don’t miss out!
