Love is in the Air

12th February 2018

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner we have noticed a few lovely campaigns this February from some of our favourite food brands. Valentine’s Day is the perfect chance for couples to spend a romantic night together over dinner, and brands are battling to prove that they are the ones to help make the night a memorable experience.

Greggs, the go to fast food chain for a cheap and cheerful lunch, are offering candlelit dinners across 5 of their branches. No we’re not joking, and yes we kind of want to go too.


For the bargain price of £15 customers are promised a romantic restaurant environment, table service and a four-course valentine’s meal all prepared with Greggs food. It will be interesting to see the feedback from the diners lucky enough to secure a table. Is this the beginning of a Greggs restaurant chain? Let’s hope so!


Brands are also catering for couples who prefer a night in on Valentine’s day… Cadbury Crème Egg have partnered with Deliveroo to bring Crème Egg desserts straight to diners’ doors.  Luckily for the Crème Egg, Valentine’s Day is perfectly placed in the lead up to Easter to help get consumers hooked just in time for that Easter chocolate splurge. Offering something a little different they have created Delivergoo, available from 8th – 14th February in four UK cities. There are two desserts, one of which is a toastie filled with melted crème egg… I’m excited to see if Cadbury throw us anymore Crème Egg curveballs this Easter.


What about for the singles on Valentine’s Day? Well brands haven’t forgotten them either! For the first time, fast food restaurant chain, Leon are running a speed dating night.

On Tuesday 13th February singles are invited to a Speed Dating event at Leon, Ludgate. It is £20 for two drinks, nibbles and the chance to find the love of your life. The best part of this campaign is that if any attendees do find true love and wish to get married then Leon Ludgate have offered to host the wedding for free… don’t say you don’t get treated!


So don’t forget to make the most of Valentine’s Day as there are plenty of affordable and unique experiences available to the romantics out there
