Today is all about the sweet things available at Manchester Arndale. Did you know it is not just the eating establishments taking part in the Get Your Eat On campaign this year? There are loads of offers for you to take them up on! Here are my favourites for some chocolate or sweets when all that shopping just gets too much –
The amount of people who have said they thought Hotel Chocolat had closed in the Arndale, I can’t tell you! They have moved, directly opposite so there is no need to panic and you can use your Get Your Eat On voucher for 10% off when you spend £15 or more. They also have a new ice cream which is just amazing. It is studded with cocoa nibs but not a chocolate ice cream so you get the nutty and earthy flavour without it being overly sweet. Top with salted caramel sauce for the perfect summer treat. Their summer chocolate ranges are fun too with chocolates ‘to chill’ that they recommend you pop in the fridge to bring out the flavours. The gin and tonic one is not to be missed.
Krispy Kreme are well known for their doughnuts particularly those delightful glazed rings that I first discovered in New York City. But did you know that they also do milkshakes? The chocolate shake looks particularly good with its chocolate sauce, cream and flake! You can get ‘buy one get one half price’ at Manchester Arndale
One retailer you may not know is taking part in the Get Your Eat On campaign is Lindt. Not just about restaurant outlets, they are offering you 10% off all full priced items in store with your voucher. They have released a new Lindor this week too. The hazelnut variety has the same smooth chocolate centre that you will know and love but there are also hazelnut nibbles for added texture. They are my new favourite.
Millie’s Cookies have 20% off their 12,24 and 50 cookie boxes during the offer, I particularly like their new emoji decorated cookies! I hadn’t seen the cookie slices before which consist of two cookies sandwiched together with icing. I will be picking up a slice next time I pop by.
Cinnamon buns are a favourite of mine when in America but I didn’t know we had perfectly good, if not great ones, here in the UK. Rollers are offering 20% off a box of four to take out and there are some great flavours to choose from. I tried the maple and pecan which was served warm and the perfect lunch time treat. It is a good job I didn’t get a box of four to be honest because I would have polished off the lot, they are so good!
Another surprise for me was that Thorntons do ice cream and they are offering a free scoop when you buy one. Their ice cream is thick and creamy with some lovely flavours to choose from. I tried the limited edition eton mess which has crunchy nuggets of meringue for added flavour. I also spied their ‘3 for £10’ deal and some of the boxes in the deal are over £6 alone, a steal!
Bobo Tea are just outside TK Maxx and offer bubble tea! Cold tea based drinks with jelly beads that pop in your mouth like bubbles add a bit of something extra to your iced tea. You can try a couple too as their offer is ‘buy one get one free’, I believe their pineapple iced tea with strawberry bubbles is a favourite amongst their customers.
Don’t forget you could win a £50 gift card if you download your vouchers via this link. You can show them on your phone to redeem or pick up a voucher book at Manchester Arndale. Let’s hope the sun comes out for all that ice cream!
