A tasty treat on Pancake Day

Pancake Day originated over 1000 years ago, when housewives would use up their cooking fats that they did not use during lent to cook pancakes. Also known as Shrove Tuesday, it is a day of great tradition. The word ‘shrove’ means ‘to confess’ which makes this day one of religion too; people will attend church and confess their sins. To add to that, it is also a day of great joy; in 1445 the very first pancake race was contested in Buckinghamshire where you have to flip your pancake in a pan and reach the finish line first.

Away from this, Pancake Day is a very tasty occasion that all ages revel in, so let us at Coinadrink help you enjoy it to the max. At our Refreshment Shop, we offer incredible tasting syrups and condiments to enjoy with your pancake such as jams, chocolates and sugar.   Why not tempt your taste buds further and compliment your pancake with a delicious tasting caramel latte.

Did you know that today is National Chilli Day?

Who doesn’t like Chilli? So what better way to enjoy it on one of the coldest months of the year! On Thursday 27th February 2014, the Nation can share their love of chilli and forget about the wintery weather for one day as they embrace in the great bowl of red. Beginning in the 18th Century, historians are under firm belief that three different cultures got together in Texas and believed they could produce the best bowl of chilli, sparking a competition. To celebrate this piece of history, indulge in a glorious spicy supreme and forget the sub zero temperatures outside your window.

And who says that you can’t mix the peppery nature of Chilli with the sweet, silky context of chocolate. It may seem many across the globe enjoy an odd combination, chilli chocolate, and surely that many people cannot be wrong! Why not try it for yourself with our superb chilli chocolate recipe?
