Today marks an almost milestone for the year – very close to being officially halfway through winter! While we are all patiently waiting for those slightly longer days, warmer sun, and extra bits of daylight, here are our top five tips for keeping warmer throughout the next few weeks of winter: Wishbone style.
1. Hot Wishbone Porridge for Breakfast
Start your day off right with a Wishbone Winter Porridge! Our flavour of the year is Classic Porridge, with caramel, dates and walnuts. Available in all our Wishbone stores (see our locations here), and a breakfast bargain at $7 per pottle , ask our friendly staff to warm it up in the microwave for you. It’s cosiness in a bowl, guaranteed to warm your belly AND make your taste buds tingle.
Porridge not your bowl of oats? Check out our full breakfast range: see our in store menu here.
2. Wishbone Soup
Nothing says winter more than a bowl of piping hot, packed to the brim with flavour, lick the bowl it’s so good, soup. What’s even better? Teaming it up with a toasted bread roll. A bargain at only $10.50… or if you’re feeling decadent treat yourself to a classic ‘South Island’ cheese and onion roll instead! Every day our dedicated in-store* staff members pop on a big pot of soup -some of larger stores have two flavours available, but it pays to get in quick as they do sell well at this time of year. Even better, if the flavour of the day is not what you were craving, pick one of our pottles from the fridge and get it heated in store – see the full of range of soup flavours here.
