BBQ season officially on the way as heatwave hits Britain

With Britain basking in hotter than Mediterranean temperatures this week shoppers have wasted no time in stocking up on BBQ foods.

Demand for BBQ foods at Tesco this weekend is set to soar, with fresh fruit like strawberries, as well as ice cream and ice lollies also set to be high on customers’ shopping lists.

Tesco BBQ meat range buyer Natalie Bastow said:

“After months of rain and with temperatures set to hit 25C plus this will be the first real opportunity Brits have had this year to get out into the garden and enjoy a BBQ with family and friends.

“Shoppers are wasting no time in stocking up for what is set to be a great few days of fun with al fresco cooking for a change.

“This season we’ve brought in some really mouth-watering gourmet BBQ treats such as teriyaki kebabs; succulent Thai spiced fish sliders and chicken and chorizo sliders to help customers dine in style.”
