Just when we thought chocolate couldnt get any better, Nestlé goes ahead and releases a brand new Munchies flavour.

If youre not familiar with the original, the square treat has a thick chocolate coating filled with soft caramel and a small round biscuit in the middle.

Munchies was originally launched in the UK in 1957 and has been a staple chocolate snack in the country every since.

Well, things are about to get even more delicious, with the release of a chocolate fudge brownie flavour.

Munchies fans will be delighted to know that the new product will still have the same texture as the original – but with the added goodness of a chocolate fudge brownie ganache around the biscuit centre.

Before you run to your nearest supermarket, note that it seems like Poundland has scored an exclusive deal on the product.

The supermarket announced the arrival of the Munchies chocolate fudge brownie addition on Facebook earlier today, though one person commented on the post and claimed the product had been on sale for several weeks in their local Poundland store.

One woman was particularly enchanted by the flavour and wrote: Literally bought a pack and I can confirm Id die for them.

Probably wont be as nice as they sound, said one sceptic.

If youd like to try it for yourself, you can pick up a pack for just £1.

For those not big on sharing, we recommend buying two packs – just in case it tastes as good as we imagine.

When youre after some vegan grub, Wetherspoons likely isnt the first place you think to go.

For pints, sure. But plant-based meals?

That could be set to change with the pub brands newest addition to the menu.

JD Wetherspoon has teamed up with startup The Meatless Farm – the UK rival to those Impossible and Beyond Meat burgers youve heard about – to create a vegan burger with the taste and texture of meat.

The burgers first landed on the menu early this year. Now, after a successful six-month trial in 40 Wetherspoons pubs, itll be available at all 880 Wetherspoons branches.

You may have sampled The Meatless Farms offering before – they sell their plant-based mince, burgers, and sausages in loads of major supermarkets.

Made of pea, soy and rice protein, chicory root, and carrot fibre, the burger is designed to have that meaty feel that will convert even the staunchest carnivores to give it a go.

While Wetherspoons already does a vegetarian burger, this will be the first ever vegan patty the pub has sold.

Its served with a side of chips and onion rings for around £6 (prices vary depending on which Wetherspoon you head to).

Wetherspoons head of catering, Jameson Robinson, said: We are keen to offer vegetarian and vegan pub-goers an excellent choice of meals to enjoy at Wetherspoon.

The plant-based burger is a great addition to the menu and we are confident that it will prove popular with vegetarians and vegans as well as those who eat meat.

We all know somebody who loves condiments a bit too much.

The one who drowns their roast dinner in ketchup, or eats lasagna with a squirt of salad cream on the side.

But are condiment cupcakes a step too far? Heinz has teamed up with the famous Hummingbird Bakery to create a range of cakes inspired by the beans manufacturers iconic products.

The cupcake flavours include ketchup, beans, mayo, salad cream and tomato soup – and were not sure how to feel about them.

The launch of the cakes this Friday is to celebrate the birthday of company founder, Henry John Heinz.

Each of the six Hummingbird Bakery branches in London is giving away 25 of the cakes for free, on a first-come, first-served basis. After that, youll be able to buy them for £3.45 each.

But do we really need a mayo flavoured cupcake? And how does a tomato soup flavoured cake even work? Were not sure, but were definitely intrigued.

Attention, plant-based pals: Zizzi has launched a new vegan pizza and it sounds amazing.

The new jackfruit pepperoni pizza comes in partnership with plant-based protein company Jack & Bry.

The Jackfruit Italian Hot is topped with a new kind of pepperoni to create a vegan alternative to the classic, so now vegans dont have to miss out on enjoying circles of meaty joy.

The plant-based pizza, which costs £10.75, is the first vegan dish to be permanently added to the Zizzi menu, and has been voted as the Best Vegan Pizza at the PETA Vegan Food Awards 2019.

The new pizza comes topped with four ingredients: spicy harissa, roquito chili, vegan Mozzarisella and jackfruit pepperoni.

It took 12 months to develop the palm oil-free meat alternative which is high in fibre and also features 70% less fat than the traditional meat pepperoni.

So yes, its a pretty healthy option all round – even for those who arent vegan.

The Jackfruit Italian Hot is available as a Rustica, Classic or Skinny pizza and comes as part of Zizzis new Autumn menu which will be available from 15 October.

Bryony Tinn-Disbury, Co-Founder of Jack & Bry says: Were absolutely thrilled to be working with Zizzi on their latest vegan dish. There is a huge opportunity right now for brands and restaurants to listen to their audiences by expanding their plant-based offerings. Its great that Zizzi are committed to its audience and are helping to create delicious, guilt-free plant-based alternatives.
