Strawberries, Strawberries EVERYWHERE!
We wanted to get in (and more importantly get YOU in) on the fun and games happening over the next two weeks.
Wimbledon Mania is here again, and top of the mind, as ever,
are SUMMER STRAWBERRIES…
Game, set and snacks!
Pop, pop, pop. There’s nothing quite like the sound of a new tennis ball being struck at more than 100 mph in the sweltering summer sun. And there’s nothing finer than popping a few strawberries in the mouth to make the most of the world’s most celebrated tennis event!
Bring on the fruit!
That’s right the Wimbledon Tournament fortnight is here and it’s going to be Strawberry-tastic! Check it out…
In addition to a staggering 54,000 balls being served over the two-week sporting event, an equally staggering 28,000 kilos of strawberries (around 1.5 million), slathered in a whopping 7,000 litres of dairy cream, will be sold. That’s still a lorra-lorra strawbs and cream. Why so many and so much?
Because we’re Brits and because we love them!
Supermarkets predict that strawberries will outsell all other daily essential items such as eggs, bread, and milk over the two-week extravaganza, making one thing abundantly clear—when the caps are on and the balls are out (or in), tennis fans love nothing more than tucking into anything strawberry-related.
At DIFG we know that, because every year, without fail, we see a spike in our strawberry-themed confectionery sales.
Step aside Murray – It’s Time for the Strawbs to take Centre Court
So…in keeping with the spirit of things, we’ve launched a fantastic Strawberry-style promotion for contract caterers and retailers. Our only bit of advice at this juncture? Start stocking up NOW. Because if history is in the habit of repeating itself – which history tells us it does – there’s going to be run on these little beauties.
So…what do we have?
More strawberry naughtiness than you care to throw a stick at, starting with, curiously enough…
Sour Strawberry Stix – White on the inside, red on the outside, with a sweet-and-sour fizz that will have you reaching for your racket and volleying your way to advantage in less time than it takes to say: ‘velly velly deuce-y’.
Giant Strawberries – A huge and fruity favourite with our contract caterers. They’re big and they come in big bags. What more can we say?
Strawberry Kisses – We heard these delightful little confectionery bites are really in love with themselves. But we don’t mind? We love them, too. Mmmmmmoi! xxx.
Strawberry Milkshakes – Soft and sensuously chewy. Wash down with Champers.
Last but not least – Strawberry Mini Pencils. Doubles up well with Strawberry Stix. Don’t try to write down the score with them, though. You’ll need a real pencil for that!
Hold on a minute, Umpire
How could we impossibly forget! What tennis-oriented summer picnic would be complete without popcorn? And which popcorn could be more apropos than RETROCORN’s – Strawberries and Cream?
These delicious, gluten-free, naturally cooked popcorn bites, sprinkled and dusted with crushed retro sweets will have you teary-eyed and reminiscing over the days when Macenroe, Bjorn Borg and Martina Navratilova held millions captive on Centre Court.
The Popcorn ball is IN!
Pop! Pop! Pop! Game, set and…
