Did you know?... Tia Maria has launched a new ready-to-drink cocktail in an Iced Coffee Frappé. The new Iced Coffee Frappé is made with 100% Arabica coffee, milky cream and Tia Maria. Using nitro technology drinkers are able to enjoy the typical frappé foam, which is created as the can is first opened, the coffee liqueur brand said. The new packaging has been created in collaboration with Dutch street artist Karski. “I’m extremely happy that Tia Maria identifies its branding with my vibrant works of art," Karski said. "This ready-to-drink can has a unique appearance with its abstract design and ‘one of a kind’ colours,” he added.

Did you know?... Aldi has launched a half bottle of prosecco which is now available in all 143 stores nationwide. The Danti Prosecco DOC is €6.87 for 37.5cl with an ABV of 11% and is a delicate prosecco with citrus aromas, perfect for pairing with seafood, savoury cheese, cured meats and fruit! Prosecco is also delicious with Asian dishes such as Thai noodles or sushi. 

Did you know?... Britain's biggest sportswear retailer JD Sports reinstated its annual guidance on Tuesday, saying it was encouraged by its performance since stores reopened thanks to the easing of coronavirus-led restrictions, reports Reuters. The owner of Footpatrol and Cloggs said first-half pretax profit sank 68% to just £41.5 million due to the effects of coronavirus-driven store closures, but it predicted full-year headline pretax profit would be at least £265 million pounds. Shares in the company were seen rising 2%, according to traders' premarket calls.

Did you know?... Aldi Süd has announced plans to introduce reusable bread bags as an alternative to disposable paper bags with a plastic film window. The new washable bags, made of organic cotton, will be available in Aldi Süd outlets from 7 September, and priced at €0.99 each. Shoppers can use these bags for packing bread, rolls and other loose baked goods hygienically, the retailer added.
