Wagamama has launched a range of new meal kits featuring some of its fan-favourite restaurant dishes, and they’ve been spotted on the shelves at Morrisons.
As part of the Japanese-inspired restaurant chain’s Cook From Home collection, the new Meal Kits contain the core ingredients that you’ll need for each dish – including Katsu Curry, Chicken Ramen and Pad Thai.
However, you’ll still need to buy the meat and fresh vegetables to go alongside each meal. So, for example with the Katsu Curry, you get soy sauce and spices, panko breadcrumbs and salad dressing – but no chicken or yasai.
If it’s the Chicken Ramen you’re after, you’ll get noodles, chicken stock, sesame seeds and wakame seaweed, but again, not the chicken itself.
Profits from the sales of its supermarket products will be donated to Wagamama’s charity partner, YoungMinds.
Speaking on the launch of the new meal kits, Thomas Heier – Wagamama CEO – said: “After seeing so many of our guests benefit from cooking along with Steve during the lockdown, we were inspired [and] we wanted to make it easier for our guests to enjoy the mental and physical benefits of cooking, long after lockdown.”
The Meal Kits first landed in Waitrose earlier this month, and will apparently be arriving at Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Ocado in just a few weeks.
Shoppers over at the popular food spotting Instagram account @NewFoodsUK have apparently spotted the kits stocked on the shelves at their local Morrisons branch for only £2.
A post sharing the new kits has racked up thousands of likes in less than three hours.
That’s tea sorted, then.
If you are planning on heading down to your local Morrison’s branch to grab yourself a couple of these new Wagamama treats, then you can check the opening times via the Store Finder here.

James Corden is trending as football fans joke loser of England vs USA ‘has to keep him’
Twitter users might have noticed that James Corden is trending again – and it’s not because it’s nearly Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special season.
The reason the British actor, comedian and presenter is trending is much funnier.
Once the World Cup games were matched up and we realised England and USA would face off in the group stages, people started joking that they would use Corden as a punishment for losing.
It’s become an ongoing joke that the loser of tonight’s World Cup match will ‘have to keep James Corden’.
And nobody seems to want that.
Corden fell out of favour last month when New York restaurant Balthazar called him ‘a tiny Cretin of a man’ and said that he abused their staff on his visit.
He was banned, then apologised, and now all seems to be forgiven.
But the internet does not forgive so easily.
At the time of writing, England vs USA is drawn 0-0.
Here are some of the tweets that sum up why James Corden is trending tonight:
You can buy half Christmas trees so you don’t have to decorate the full thing
December is nearly ready for rolling around once again.
It’s time to reach out the decorations out and get into the festive spirit, but for those who’d consider themselves a bit lazy, there’s an invention that could be a life saver, and it’s quite honestly genius.
You can now buy ‘half Christmas trees’ – otherwise known as or ‘against the wall Christmas trees’.
Unless your tree’s going to placed in front of a street-facing window for rafts of passers-by to see on a daily basis, it can be really tempting to just not decorate the back of it at all, right? The faff off trying to evenly-distribute strings of lights, tinsel and baubles around a full tree is often a lot more trouble than it’s worth, especially when it’s not going to be properly seen anyway.
Some would probably say it’s pointless, and it’s this thought that has presumably prompted companies to start selling these ‘half Christmas trees’.
If you’re wondering what a ‘half Christmas tree’ is, it’s basically exactly as it sounds – half a tree.
Half Christmas trees – which are also a great option for those with slightly less space to dedicate to seasonal decorations – are available in various places, and for all manner of budgets, so it should be fairly easy to get your hands on one this festive season.
According to the product description on the Very website: “This may look like a regular Christmas tree, but it’s been cleverly designed so that one side is completely flat, so no matter how limited your space might be, you and your family can still enjoy the magic of having a tree in your home,”
“Standing an impressive 6ft tall and featuring 511 tips for a lush look, you can stand it flat against the wall to save on valuable floor space,
“It also means you don’t have to worry about any of your favourite decorations being out of sight at the back”.
If you’re looking for something a little cheaper though, then there’s plenty of different options available on eBay and Amazon too, and our pick for this would be the vidaXL Artificial Half Christmas Tree – which is currently being sold on eBay by a number of different sellers for prices starting at £24.
