Taste the Love in the Air on Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day is celebrated worldwide in hundreds of different ways and with a huge variety of traditions. From heart-shaped mandarins in South Korea to ‘love spoons’ in Wales and carved melons in China, everyone has a different way of expressing their love, both for family and partners.

However, a common known fact in both the UK and America is that the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. What better way to express your love than presenting them with a selection of treats that are just as sweet as your partner? Have they experienced the cloudy strawberry goodness of pink Marshmallow Fluff or the deliciousness of a fresh Betty Crocker Red Velvet Cake? Are they an Oreo fan who have never tried the alternative American flavours such as Cookie Butter, Apple Pie, Dunkin’ Donuts Mocha, Mint, lemon and loads more? Or are they a snack fiend who constantly craves Pringles, Snyders, beef jerky and popcorn?

Strawberry Marshmallow Fluff - Valentines Day

If your partner is American, or loves to visit across the pond, ask them what American foods they miss most. You can then surprise them with their favourite American treat, without paying for flights to LA or New York!

We know that in America, Valentine’s Day isn’t just about your partner – it also celebrates the love for friends and family, more so than V-Day in the UK. If you’re looking to bring the American Valentine’s Day spirit back to the UK, we have so many typical treats to give away to your besties, or even to create some crafty yet delicious masterpieces with the kids! Check out this video on how to make Valentine’s Day love bugs using Hershey’s Kisses!

We hope you all have a fantastic Valentine’s Day with lots of delicious treats to share with the ones you love!

Flipping Awesome Pancakes!

Pancake Day is next week and we just can’t wait to be smothering some fluffy pancakes in syrup on the 13th Feb!

Everybody loves their pancakes in a certain way, whether you go for the classic bacon and syrup combination, sugar and lemon, ice-cream and chocolate sauce or something a little bit more original.  And are you a flipper? In France, people like to make a wish before flipping their pancakes, but we’re not sure what happens if you miscalculate the landing! If you really think you’re a pro then why don’t you try to beat the world record? The most tosses of a pancake in one minute is 140, or if you’re going for the highest pancake toss, try beating the monumental flip of 9.47m (Guinness Book of Records).

No matter how the flipping goes, we want your pancakes to be fluffy and delicious! Order our varieties of Aunt Jemima Pancake Mixes for quick, simple and almost fool-proof fluffy goodness! Don’t worry if you have a gluten free diet – we offer Bisquick Gluten-Free Pancake and Waffle Mix.

So, have a flipping crazy Pancake Day with no pancake flipping disasters!
