Mini snack-size variations of Milky Way Crispy Rolls have been spotted featured in tubs of Celebrations by eagle-eyed shoppers at B&M this weekend and fans are already going mad for it.
Now, this really is a cause for celebration.
It’s long been disputed which chocolatey treat is the best of the bunch in the Celebrations selection, with many Brits often electing the Maltesers Teasers to reign supreme, but one thing’s for sure, the addition of Milky Way Crispy Rolls is sure to be a worthy contender in this race.
Milky Way Crispy Rolls – milk chocolate-covered wafer biscuit fingers with a lightly whipped filling – have been spotted inside of large tubs of Celebrations at multiple B&M stores across the UK this weekend and have been shared to social media with positive response.
The sighting of these new Celebrations tubs was shared on popular food-spotting Instagram account @newfoodsuk on Saturday afternoon.
The tubs also appear to be pictured on the shelves at B&M under a sign that confirm them as a ‘new’ product.
Since sharing this new-in product, the post has already gone on to amass well over 7,600 likes and hundreds of comments from people seeming very eager to seek them out for themselves.
One Instagram user commented: “The best news I’ve had all week”.
“The best addition” commented another.
These Celebrations tubs were also spotted and shared on Twitter by @morganbeckers with the caption: “Celebrations with milky way crispy rolls in B&M is beautiful” – which is hard to disagree with, right?
One thing’s for sure then, it sounds like there’s going to be a bit of a mad dash to B&M if you want to treat yourself and try to get your hands on a tub.
It unfortunately hasn’t been confirmed which B&M stores these Celebrations tubs have been spotted in, meaning that it’s probably going to be a case of keeping your fingers crossed that you can find them in your local branch.
Pricing of the product also wasn’t indicated, but we don’t reckon it’s likely to be a bank breaking purchase.
If you are planning on taking a trip to uncover these Celebrations across Greater Manchester, then it’s advised that you always check the opening times of your local B&M branch before heading to any store and you can do that via the store locator here.
Sir David Jason set for TV return in Only Fools and Horses documentary Christmas special
In a surprise bit of festive news, the only and only Sir David Jason is returning for an Only Fools and Horses Christmas special this December. Lovely jubbly!
The best-loved and most-watched British comedy of all time will be back on our screens in documentary form this festive season, with Del Boy himself David Jason revisiting the iconic comedy character after 20 years he last played him on screen.
While the legendary sitcom was broadcast on BBC back in the day, the highly-anticipated Only Fools doc will be airing on Channel 5 right before Christmas as a special one-off programme.
Looking back on the show’s incredible run on UK screens over seven series and the several ‘Christmas Cracker’ specials, specifically, the latest Only Fools and Horses documentary will see Jason and a number of other guests appearing to chat about the legendary show.
While it’s still unclear how many of the original cast will be appearing, Jason’s on-screen wife Tessa Peake-Jones (Raquel) is confirmed to be appearing along with other special guests including newscaster Krishnan Guru-Murthy and Bendiorm‘s Sherrie Hewson.
Sadly, a full theatrical reunion just isn’t on the cards following the deaths of Roger Lloyd Pack (Trigger), Kenneth MacDonald (Mike the Landlord) and Buster Merryfield (Uncle Albert) in the 30 years since the show ended its run.
Only Fools writer John Sullivan also sadly passed away aged 64 in 2011 and fellow co-star Nicholas Lyndhurst, a.k.a. Rodney Trotter, told Metro: “We can’t. John is no longer with us. John was the driving force of the show and we have also lost quite a few cast members now.
“I don’t think I could do it without them and I certainly couldn’t do it without John. At the risk of depressing everyone, I think the last two times I’ve seen David has been at funerals.”
Simply entitled, ‘The Story Of Only Fools And Horses At Christmas’, the 90-minute special is yet to have its broadcast date fully confirmed but you best keep your eyes peeled on the TV guide — we’ll let you know as soon we do.
Jason, 81, has only just recovered from hip surgery earlier this year, so it’ll be nice to see his familiar grin back on our screens.
Right, we’re off to binge a whole series on UK Gold.
Habas restaurant in Manchester announces shock closure – with huge closing-down discount
Habas, the Middle Eastern restaurant launched by the team behind El Gato Negro, has announced its shock closure.
The subterranean restaurant will be going out with a bang though, promising one last knees-up with a big discount.
Habas will be doing 25% off its entire food and drink menu this New Year’s Eve so that fans of the eatery can raise a glass to the Manchester restaurant.
They’re also hoping that Mancs will raise a glass to new beginnings, teasing a brand new concept.
Habas is located at Brown Street in Manchester city centre and has been serving up its Middle Eastern menu since 2021.
It comes from Mills Hill Developments Limited, the company also responsible for El Gato Negro and Canto, fronted by celebrated chef Simon Shaw.
Habas has stressed that its closure ‘is not forever’ as it announces details of its New Year’s Eve closing down party.
You can ring in the new year with a selection of mezze dishes, sharing platters and small plates, feasting on chicken tagine and traditional tzatziki, all 25% off on Sunday 31 December.
Drinks, too, like the cranberry elderflower martini, blackberry ginger smash and clementine daquiri will be with 25% off.
Simon Shaw, Chef Parton at Mills Hill Developments Limited, said: “As of January 2024, we have made the decision to close the doors of Habas Bar & Restaurant, however we are thrilled to announce that our Brown Street venue has an exciting new concept on the way.
“Throughout December, Habas, will continue serving up the city’s best middle-eastern cuisine, so make sure you pop in and see us.
