There is a new wine on the scene quite unlike any other. It’s canned, it’s vegan, and it’s eco-friendly.
Say hello to HUN.
Created by millennials for millennials, the brand is the brainchild of Mark Woollard – who enjoyed the convenience and environmental benefits of cans, but could never find the same quality and taste associated with the bottled wines.
He began partnering with some of the world’s best wine regions – the South African vineyards in the Stellenbosch region – to create HUN; putting proceeds from every case towards The Fairhills Fairtrade project (which offers life-changing benefits for communities).
HUN has been building a real buzz on social media ever since; building a buzz on social media for their humorous billboards.
The wine cans have already won over celebrity fans including Amanda Holden, Natalie Pinkham, This Morning presenters Holly and Phil, and Love Island’s Josh Denzel and Wes Nelson.
And the hype is justified.
Currently, there are three different flavours available: Sparkling Rosé, Rosé, and Sauvignon Blanc.
The Sparkling Rosé containing only 69 calories, is refreshing, sweet and sparkly – packing a good fruity punch inside.
It’s perfect for a light, low alcohol content tipple; best enjoyed whilst sunbathing in the garden with a good book.
The Rosé – perhaps the punchiest of the three – has almost double the alcohol content of the sparkling can… and you can tell from the first sip.
It has a sharp, tangy flavour which mellows into a cool red-berry aftertaste; a great accompaniment for a BBQ as it balances out all the smoky flavours.
Last but certainly not least is the Sauvignon Blanc – the most sophisticated can of the bunch.
Singletons in lockdown have been using online dating and video chat to form new connections, and a glass of this classy wine is almost certainly going to boost confidence and make the chat flow.
At the very least, it should spark conversation as to what on earth you are drinking!
Fancy sampling a can or two? Head over to the HUN website to learn more.
Cans are available in Tesco supermarkets and online at Amazon.
Coca-Cola confirms the Christmas Truck is coming to Manchester this weekend
Coca-Cola has finally confirmed the news we’ve all been waiting for… the Christmas Truck will be in Manchester this weekend.
December is here, the temperatures have plummeted outside, and the ‘most wonderful time of the year’ is nearing closer and closer by the day – but it’s not Christmas until you’ve gone and got a Coca-Cola from the giant red van is it, right?
Well luckily, we won’t have to wait too much longer to get to do that once again.
The soft drinks company confirmed that ‘Holidays Are Coming’ a couple of weeks back, with the UK tour of the iconic Coca-Cola Christmas Truck now well underway, and having visited other major northern cities such as Leeds and Liverpool over the last few days.
And now, Coca-Cola has revealed that the legendary van is coming to Greater Manchester this weekend, and will be stopping off at the Trafford Centre for one day only.
The much-loved festive symbol will be arriving outside the shopping centre tomorrow (Saturday 2 December) from midday right through until 8pm to provide “the ultimate Christmas celebration”, with a whole host of activities planned for families of all ages.
The 2023 Coca-Cola Christmas Truck journey will be packed with “interactive experiences for visitors to immerse themselves in”.
Anyone who heads to the Trafford Centre from midday tomorrow will first be welcomed by a walk-in, snow-filled bauble that invites them to “step into a winter wonderland for the perfect holiday snapshot”, all before making a stop at the ‘Ho-Ho-Hoop Hut’ to take part in a fun festive game for the chance to win a selection of prizes – including meal-inspired rewards, and recycled Christmas tree decorations.
Families can then finish off the tour by posing for a memorable photo opportunity in front of the iconic Coca-Cola truck.
Visitors are welcome to listen to the Coca-Cola Christmas choir as they perform a set of carols too.
Fancy it then? If you’re ready to kick-start Christmas the right way, then make sure you get yourself down to the Trafford Centre from midday tomorrow.

Tesco has slashed the price of one-litre bottles of Baileys by more than 50%
Tesco has slashed the price of one-litre bottles of Baileys by more than 50%, and they’re now available to get your hands on for a limited time only.
With December officially here, and the festive season nearing closer by the day, most UK supermarkets are rolling out deals left, right, and centre to help shoppers save a few pennies during ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ as the cost of living crisis continues – and it seems like Tesco is absolutely no different.
That’s because the retailer has decided to knock a whopping £12 off the regular price of one-litre bottles of one of the best-loved Christmas tipples.
Fans of the classic Irish cream liqueur drink will probably want to run not walk to their nearest Tesco to stock up on Baileys ready for the big day to arrive, as big bottles of the festive favourite have been reduced from £22 right down to just £10, and are now available to fill your basket with.
But… there’s a bit of a catch (isn’t there always?)
Not only is the over half-price offer only available for a very limited time, and due to expire at the end of next week, but shoppers will only be able to buy the one-litre bottles at the impressive £10 price if they’re Tesco Clubcard customers.
You were probably expecting that’d be the case, right? The supermarket – which is well-known for the savings it offers via is loyalty card scheme all year round – is giving Clubcard users up until Monday 11 December to nip to their nearest branch or head online to the Tesco website and buy as many bottles of Bailey’s as they fancy.
As part of the supermarket’s commitment to “keep prices low” until the end of the year, stuffing, roast potatoes, cranberry sauce, and even tin foil have all seen their prices slashed as the retailer aims to help those struggling to cover costs.
