McCain releases 50 per cent bigger meals

McCain Foods Australia is set to fill the freezer aisle with bigger meals and bigger flavour with the launch of new Mansize meals.

As many consumers continue to supplement their frozen meals, McCain saw the need to satisfy their hunger by creating even better quality and more satisfying frozen meals.

The meals are 50 percent larger than the traditional frozen meal, loaded with quality cuts of meat and hearty sides that completely satisfy the hungrier appetite.

According to McCain Foods ANZ Product Manager, Rebecca De Xavier Pinto,  McCain continues to look for ways to help both satisfy the hunger of consumers with great tasting food and offer fuss-free solutions.

Drawing inspiration from traditional pub favourites, consumers have three meal options in larger 480-500g packs: Bangers in a rich Onion Gravy with Creamy Potato Mash, Grilled Chicken and Bacon Creamy Pasta Bake and, Chicken Kiev with Vegetables and Potato.


Hello Possums! – Drumstick’s new summer flavours set to be ‘divine’

One of Australia’s favourite ice creams, Drumstick, has joined forces with a couple of Aussie Legends to celebrate summer and two new flavours; Glamington and One Tough Cookie Dough.

Inspired by Australia’s favourite housewife, Dame Edna Everage, Glamington is a sponge cake flavoured ice cream with a raspberry swirl, topped with choc-coconut ice cream, chocolate sauce and a sprinkle of coconut.

With her signature glasses and lavender coloured hair, the mythic bird of paradise Dame Edna said, “My Drumstick is quite superior I believe. Cookie Dough is fine for a “Working Class Man” like Jimmy Barnes, but my Glamington ice cream is simply divine. Wrap your lips around that Possums!“

On that point, One Tough Cookie Dough has been created in honour of Australia’s legendary Rocker – Jimmy Barnes.

One Tough Cookie Dough is a cookie dough flavoured ice cream studded with cookie dough pieces, topped with lush chocolate sauce and cookie crumb. “It’s one hell of an ice cream,” Barnsey said.

“I’m stoked to be working with DRUMSTICK and celebrating Aussie legends and I’m honoured to have been considered as one of them”,” Barnsey continued.

The new flavours and the rivalry between Dame Edna and Barnsey on who is the biggest legend will hit TV screens in November.
