In anticipation of Pancake Tuesday next week, Tesco is preparing to sell over 500,000 fresh lemons and 200,000 punnets of berries over the coming days.
“We are preparing for the sales surge in all our stores with extra stock of Pancake Tuesday favourites, such as lemons and berries, being delivered over the coming week as our customers continue to embrace & enjoy a traditional pancake treat on Shrove Tuesday,” said David Stokes, Tesco Ireland Fresh Food Team.
Last year’s sales figures showed that Pancake Day essentials are mostly sold at lunchtime on the day, with sales of ready-made pancakes seeing a rise. Selected Tesco stores will be preparing fresh pancakes on in-store ‘hotplates’ on the day itself.
According to the retailer, the top five pancake toppings and accompaniments are fresh lemon juice, Nutella hazelnut chocolate spread/peanut butter, fresh berries, honey, and raspberry or strawberry jam.
