As Shrove Tuesday approaches, Central Co-op is celebrating the various ways people can enjoy the occasion, stocking everything customers need to enjoy pancakes, with toppings to suit all tastes too. 

Those wanting to whip up their own pancakes can check out this recipe online, and many of the ingredients are reduced for Members as part of the extended offers locked until Easter. Members can exclusively save a combined £1.15 on flour, eggs, and milk as part of these deals, and with Fairtrade Fortnight fast approaching, Members can also experience savings on Fairtrade bananas to add to their pancakes for a fruity flavour, reduced from £1.05 to £0.75. White flour is down from £1.00 to £0.75; six free range eggs are reduced from £1.55 to £1.00; and a four-pint carton of milk is reduced from £1.85 to £1.50. 

Customers and members are invited to try delicious alternatives to traditional lemon and sugar toppings with its Macadamia Nut Butter, Macadamia Chocolate Butter, or Crunchy Peanut Butter and support farmers and producers in south-eastern Africa through Our Malawi Partnership at the same time!
