Forget Blue Monday, it’s Blueberry Monday!

18 January 2016

We helped put a smile on the faces of thousands of commuters this morning, as the country woke up to what is officially known as the most depressing day of the year – Blue Monday.

We hosted our very own pop-up Blueberry Smoothie Station in Tooley Street Metro store, providing customers with tasty blueberry based smoothies designed to make people feel happier and healthier.

Our recipes included ‘The Blue-Monday-berry Smoothie’, a mix of fresh blueberries, oranges and bananas, and the Berry Smoothie made up of blueberries, natural yoghurt and strawberries. All the recipes included superfood blueberries, which are full of anthocyanin nutrients that help reduce stress and depression.

Rachel Jones, London Convenience Director, said:

“We know many of our customers will be feeling the January blues on their way to work this morning so we’ll be cheering them up with some delicious smoothies.  We hope these little health kicks will give people a lift and leave them feeling just that little bit happier.”
