Jubilee Food and Drink News
Joining in with the current patriotic feeling, we have a special round-up of new Jubilee products and some old favourites with a special royal twist.
What can you buy for £1?
The familiar tin of Lyle’s Golden Syrup has been given a royal makeover to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee. Inside there is no difference, Lyle’s golden syrup has been made with the same unchanged recipe for 125 years, at its original refinery on the banks of the Thames. For the first time ever, and for only short period, you will be able to buy a limited edition of tin of syrup with the special slogan ‘Happy and Glorious’ at the rather reasonable price of £1!
Lyle’s Golden Syrup is available from all good retailers nationwide including Tesco Sainsbury’s Asda and Waitrose
Do you love it, or do you hate it Ma’am?
In their tribute to the Queen, Marmite have revamped their packaging, by changing the name on their celebration jars to Ma’amite. The iconic yeast spread, loved (and hated), the world over has the nation divided, there’s no middle ground where Marmite is concerned.
Limited edition jars of Ma’amite are available from good retailers nationwide including Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Waitrose, Morrisons and Co-op.
What a pickle!
Meanwhile Tracklements have created a special limited edition A Right Royal Pickle, which his presented in a stylish Le Parfait jar. Patriotic through and through it is made with British vegetables, blended with vinegar, sugar, lemon juice chillies and spices to give a crunchy, tangy pickle. Serve it with cheese on a sandwich, with cold cuts or a ploughman’s lunch.
A Right Royal Pickle is available from good delicatessens, butchers and farm shops as well as online at www.tracklements.co.uk
A Royal touch
Davidstow Diamond Jubilee Cornish Cheddar was made on the day the Prince of Wales visited the creamery in July 2011 and added the starter culture to the creamy Cornish milk. The final result is a smooth, creamy mature Cheddar, that is irresistible to cheese lovers!
Davidstow Diamond Jubilee Limited Edition Cornish Cheddar is available from Marks and Spencer and Waitrose. Although the packaging will differ, look for Davidstow and Diamond Jubilee.
Celebrate with Cadbury
If you are planning a tea party or having friends to stay over the Bank Holiday weekend look out for special tins and cartons of Cadbury biscuits in their Jubilee biscuit range. They include a collectable Union Flag Assortment Tin and Mini Fingers in a vintage Jubilee Barrel. Something to please all biscuit lovers!
Cadbury Biscuits Jubilee Limited Edition biscuit tins and cartons are available nationwide.
Quintessentially British, there is nothing that lets us know the hot weather is here, quite like a glass of Pimm’s on a balmy afternoon. Look out for Limited Edition bottles with a redesigned sparkly label to include a Union Jack flag and their recently awarded Royal Warrant. You can’t get more regal than that!
Pimm’s is available from all good supermarkets nationwide.

A Royal punch
Serve something a little more exciting than water and orange juice to drivers this weekend. Belvoir Summer Celebration Punch is a refreshing, gently carbonated drink, made with real pressed strawberry juice (not from concentrate), a dash of lime juice and a touch of mint. Serve it well chilled; in a long glass over ice, you could even add a wedge of lime or a sprig of mint to decorate.
