Lidl Brings Back 99p Churros But You'll Have To Be Quick

Every week we're given false hope that that summer is on its way. The sun rears its head for five minutes and then it's gone.

Well, fortunately for you, the good people at Lidl are on hand with some much-needed summer vibes as they have announced the return of their best-selling churros.

The highly-coveted fried dough choux pastry pipe snacks hit UK stores last Thursday and they only cost 99p per pack.

But if you want to get your hands on them you'll have to be quick as they're only available while stocks last.

All consumers need to do is pop the sweet treats in the microwave for 15 minutes and then serve piping hot with a side of gooey chocolate spread. And/or cover them in some sugar and cinnamon.

Right, so this doesn't sound like the healthiest of options, and if you're trying to get fit you may want to give the sweet toppings a miss - but where's the fun in that?

Besides, cinnamon has plenty of health benefits and is packed full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory effects.

According to Healthline, it can improve risk factors for heart disease, has a powerful anti-diabetic effect and can help fight off infections.

And if you don't like cinnamon on your churros (weird, but whatever), cocoa or dark chocolate can improve your brain function. You heard it here first.

So all this medical advice means only one thing - churros are actually healthy. We knew this all along - we'll have ten packs thanks, Lidl.

But maybe they just aren't your thing?

Well, over the weekend the store also announced it was bringing back yet another favourite, its famous Peaky Blnders gin, and it's just in time for the bank holiday.

The budget supermarket chain brought it out for Christmas, but it's back again to get us all excited for season five.

The gin is named after everyone's favourite Brummy street gang, which became famous during the 1890s, the gin is made by Sadler's - a distillery in Stourbridge in the West Midlands.

It's not too pricey, at £21.99 and is made from exotic spices and nine botanicals - including ginger and grains of paradise. This is a bold spicy gin choice and probably not for the faint-hearted, but in 2018, the gin won a bronze at both the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the International Spirits Challenge.
