Burrito babes Boojum are putting the spotlight on skyrocketing student rent prices with their new campaign, which lets one lucky student win a life-changing college prize.

The franchise is going above and beyond for its student customers. The food brand is highlighting the serious issue of student rent, with the food company offering the chance to win free rent for one year.

With students heading back to college over the last few weeks, they're facing another year of trying to balance study, examinations and social lives. Many take up part-time work to help their living costs.

The rents in Dublin are ever-increasing and add to the worsening homelessness crisis in the city daily.

David Maxwell, Boojum’s Managing Director commented on the campaign: 

“We’re on the side of students, always aiming to deliver real value every day for them, but we knew we could take it beyond burritos. Almost fifty percent of our workforce is made up of third-level students so we’re really conscious of the pressures that they’re under.

“From speaking with our students, increasing rent really is one of the biggest issues for them and is a distraction that they don’t need."

"That’s the thinking behind this promotion; if we can help one student this year by taking the pressure of rent off their mind, then we’ve done something positive,” he added.

Boojum has become known for its ties with students, whether it's the exam season burrito boosts or part-time jobs. The new campaign looks at the struggles students face financially nationwide as tuition fees rise.

Boojum is duplicating typical ‘To Let’ signs that line the streets in popular student areas in all university cities, announcing the chance to win free rent.

The food company has also turned two restaurant windows into Estate Agent windows, with listings available from €0. 

According to the National Union of Students in Ireland (USI), colleges are increasing campus accommodation costs by as much as 11.5 percent. 

Boojum aims to solve this problem for one lucky student, freeing up much-needed cash to help pay tuition fees and household bills.

Irish people adore pizza, there's no denying that fact.

What we wanted to find out was what weird and wonderful delicacies our nation was ordering, and the results have arrived.

To celebrate National Cheese Pizza Day on Thursday, September 5, Deliveroo have released data of their Top 10 Most Ordered Pizzas in Ireland as well as the strangest custom pizza requests made.

While many of us are still arguing over whether pineapple should touch the tomato/cheese heaven of pizza or not, other people are ordering some pretty damn questionable items for their meals.

Here are by far the oddest orders, and we gagged at more than one of them so that's a warning to those of you with weak stomachs;

The Roast Pizza

One devout roast dinner lover in Cork City asked that the restaurant, instead of the selection of toppings listed, would decorate his pizza with a generous spread of roast chicken and carrots. Mammy would be so proud. 

Sweet and Savoury

We know – public opinion of sweet pizzas is mixed. Some consider it to be just another wonderful way to enjoy pizza, while others view them as total abominations, but one Ballsbridge customer played with fire when she requested a chocolate dessert pizza topped with chilli flakes.

Ketchup Pizza

Everyone knows that pizza is made with a dedicated pizza sauce. That sauce is not ketchup. In any case, a ketchup-crazed individual near Stephen’s Green requested that her pizza base be slapped with the condiment instead of the usual sauce. Each to their own?

Salt  and Vinegar 

A customer in Tallaght, who presumably confused pizza with fish and chips, requested in the order notes for the restaurant to ‘put plenty of salt and vinegar on it’. To be fair, it doesn’t sound gross, but there’s no doubt that it’s an unusual request.

The Breathalyser

One Donnybrook customer embarked on a mission to create the ultimate bad breath sensation. There were no out of the ordinary special requests as such, but… her toppings choices were tuna, anchovies, basil and garlic. They speak (or breathe) for themselves.

Top 10 Most Ordered Pizzas in Ireland

Joe Groves of Deliveroo commented on the data results;

“Ireland has an eclectic taste in pizza, and this is reflected in the diverse range of popular pizzas around the country, from the Spicy Devil to the Diablo.

“Better still, it’s clear there is no fear of standing out from the crowd with these bizarre pizza orders. Luckily for them, we will always go above and beyond to cater to their needs."

Nice to know that the Deliveroo staff aren't judging our strangeness…

Summer coming to an end can be a troubling time for all of us. Why should we have to cope with Ireland's gloomy, cold seasons once more? It doesn't seem fair.

What can be the best stress reliever during difficult and chaotic moments in our lives? Food, obviously.

Deliveroo has revealed how the return to school and end of August can affect our food preferences, and we're not one bit shocked at the rise in alcohol orders during September.

september 21 GIF

Summer 2019 is leaving us behind *pause for sobbing* and it's time to ditch the bikinis for uniforms and work clothes. According to Deliveroo, healthy orders significantly increase in September…what?

The alcohol orders rise by 14 percent as we realise that exams and essay deadlines are back in our lives once more.

The end of summer has broken our hearts, but at least we got to enjoy Love Island and let our pasty skin tones get a tad bit more…red? There were glimmers of sunshine and plenty of rain showers, but it was a good time all the same.

As the nights become shorter, we're less likely to stay out dining late or visiting Dublin's best beer gardens, but Irish adults still need some vino to take the edge of the darker September evenings.

Back-to-school season means that rather than venturing out in dark, dreary weather, it's much easier to order a Prosecco Fiabesco from DRINK! or a Coors Light from Herlihy’s instead on Deliveroo. 

With the end of summer comes the end of the 'beach bod' goals. The month is associated with changes and positive progress, with healthy food orders rising by 22 percent last August.

From salads and falafels and miso salmon to super-sub sandwiches, Sprout and Co and SuperSubs see a rise in Deliveroo orders during the month of September. Look at you go, gals. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Deliveroo Ireland (@deliveroo_ie) on

September is also seen as a 'new beginning' time of the year, but we all dread the darker nights accelerating from here until December. It's depressing as f*ck.

The darkness weirdly makes us feel more tired at an earlier time, which means that Deliveroo orders start coming in earlier in the evenings too. 

Last year, the average order time in June was 8:01pm, whereas by the time September rolled around, the average order time was at 7:34pm. Mad what the sky can do to us, isn't it?

So we’re making some new changes with the addition of salads and other healthy orders, but then we need a drink as a result. It's safe to say that September has us in a state of total flux.

It's hardly surprising that Deliveroo drivers come across a variety of strange incidents, seeing as they travel across the whole nation and bring food to eager customers.

The food delivery service have gone through some of their more bizarre Irish order notes for our entertainment, and boy are they eccentric.

The five more unusual delivery requests observed in the country to date have been revealed, and we honestly think these drivers deserve a pay rise for dealing with some of these requests…

1)  Breakdown Assistance

One Dubliner, whose car broke down on the M50 at Tymon Park, decided that waiting 45 minutes for breakdown assistance to arrive was not going to fill the food-sized hole in his stomach.

To meet this need, the stranded motorist ordered breakdown assistance in the form of a tasty meal from the Deliveroo app. The note simply read "Look out for the broken down Fiesta".

2) Don’t Forget to Say Grace

In Cork City, one family made the decision to order a Deliveroo on Christmas Eve to make the Christmas rush that little less stressful.

They specified on their delivery instructions to deliver "no earlier than one hour’s time as we are going to mass now". The family went to mass and got through rush traffic, arriving home before the rider got to them

3) Maternity Meal

A young couple in Galway City Centre had just welcomed the arrival of their newborn and Mum was feeling a bit famished but hospital food was not doing it for her.

So, she got the new Dad to whip out his phone and put in an order from her favourite restaurant. He was then sent to meet the Deliveroo rider at the hospital entrance so that he could sneak in their newest delicious delivery.

4) Birthday Wishes

A family, celebrating their daughter’s birthday with a party at their home in Sandycove, requested in the delivery notes that with the special delivery, the rider, would give a rousing rendition of happy birthday, which he was more than happy to oblige.

5) Late Night Hidden Pizza

One female customer in Dublin who was out enjoying a couple of drinks with friends ordered pizza and wanted it delivered to her house so it would be there when she got home.

Based on her note in her order, she was obviously worried that her flatmate would get stuck into her pizza so asked the rider to hide it for her; “Please, please, please hide my pizza under my car as I won’t be there and my house mates keep eating my food!”

Joe Groves of Deliveroo said, “Food delivery is less about getting that ‘Saturday night takeaway’ nowadays, because different people have different needs and circumstances.

Deliveroo recognises this, and we will always do our very best to ensure that our service meets your needs, whatever your circumstances may be,” he added.

"Whether your housemate is stealing your food or you're stuck in one of life's pickles, just tell us in the delivery notes and we'll try our best to sort you out." Absolute heroes, they are.

Finally, we have the data which reveals the changing ordering habits and food trends poised to hit Ireland this summer.

It's vital information that we simply HAD to know, and Deliveroo went full FBI secret agent to discover the fascinating food facts.

The summer trends reveal that low alcohol consumption and the 'fourth' meal notion are changing our eating habits. The data also shows that seafood, exotic fruits and hemp-based products are on the rise.

Summer is knocking on the door and it's time to binge the ridiculousness that is Love Island and crack open a beer in the back garden.

There's a grand oul stretch in the evenings, meaning we can have a picnic lasting pretty much all night. It's no surprise that our eating habits change in the sunny season.

Deliveroo's data shows that changing consumption patterns, seafood and exotic fruits are all on our summer menu in 2019.

carmen miranda fruit GIF

Without further ado, here are the top five summer food trends in Ireland:

1. Lower alcohol consumption

Restaurants like Morocco Gate and The Hill in Ranelagh have incredible virgin beverages for those who are kicking the booze.

According to research, younger generations of Irish people are drinking way less than the previous generations at the current age. Whether that's for health reasons or just preference, it seems the youth are lovin' that sober life.

The trend is due to carry on in the same manner, as delicious mocktails and non-alcoholic beers come further into the fray.

2. Hemp-based products

CDB Oil (Cannabidiol) is a phytocannabinoid which is believed to be associated with wellness and health benefits.

Hemp-based products have exploded onto the scene and their popularity is showing zero signs of slowing down.

Deliveroo caters for CBD lovers through hemp ingredients found in Freshii and 143 restaurant dishes.

Umamii and The Hulk both contain ingredients of this kind, and the food-delivery platform expects to make many more hemp-based products available soon.

3. Seafood

Ireland's taste for seafood has apparently evolved past the stage of 'fish and chips' for the warm summer months.

The emergence of gorgeous restaurants ike Bao House, Miyazaki and Toyko Kitchen has led to an influx of seafood dishes becoming trendy in the capital city.

Shellfish, seaweed, sushi and sea snacks have become sophisticated common orders on Irish menus, with requests for sushi alone increasing by 35 percent this year.

5. Alternative eating times

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are becoming less than regular for many Irish people's standard meal structure. 

A 'fourth', smaller meal fits in with the busy lives of Ireland's millennials, apparently. The most popular times to order on Deliveroo at the moment are 9:43am, 1:04pm, 3:45pm and 7:35pm.

As a result of this newfound demand, Deliveroo has extended its delivery hours to later times, where customers can now order from over 30 food favourites.

Eddie Rockets, Subway, Burrito & Blues and Supermacs in Dublin, Cork and Galway are now delivering food via Deliveroo until 2am. Midnight snack alert?

5. Pacific-Rim Influence

2019 has seen a 23 percent jump in the number of partners who have used ingredients from the Pacific-Rim, featured in the new dishes of Maneki and Opium.

Flavours from the Southern Hemisphere are diversifying Ireland's food palate, and this summer will see more fresh, tastebud tingling foods emerge.

Dragonfruit, guava and seafood dishes are at the top of our Pacific-Rim lists, that's for sure.

Aries (March 20th – April 20th)

Impatient Aries wants food now, and wants it hot. Since Aries prefers food of a spicier variety, the fire sign seeks a dish that packs a punch, such as a fiery burrito from Boojum or a Chu Chee Curry from Camile Thai.

Aries sticks with fellow fire sign Sagittarius when it comes to dining together and enjoying the spices of life.

Taurus (April 20th – May 21st)

Steady Taurus savours every mouthful at their own pace. The earth sign enjoys food of all varieties – all that really matters is that it’s edible and plentiful.

Such dishes may include the bacon cheeseburger from Five Guys or a penne arrabbiata from Belucci. Of course, Taurus’ partner in crime is Cancer. The crime? A private food appreciation party, with no leftovers.

Gemini (May 21st – June 21st) 

Social Gemini loves to talk and eat, and loses interest quickly so bite size variety is key – in fact. Dishes like sushi from Aoki Sushi or spring rolls from Mao at Home are likely to grab their attention.

A Gemini’s best dining partner is Virgo, as they can both enjoy their grazing habits whilst they’re busy talking – there won’t be a dull moment.

Cancer (June 21st – July 23rd)

Food is life for this sign. Cancer enjoys nothing more than a quiet night in with comfort food and friends.

A hearty rotisserie chicken from Camden Rotisserie would hit the spot for this water sign, finished with a brownie and Nutella cronut from Krust.

There’s no better person to enjoy this level of comfort with than Capricorn – the perfect food match.

Leo (July 23rd – August 23rd)

Regal Leo expects to dine as a king would – a lover of all that is lavish, entertaining and expensive, budget permitting.

The majestic sign would enjoy a fine dish such as lobster from Klaw and wash this down with champagne from Baggot Street Wines. Of course every King needs a Queen – or some sort of regal equivalent, at the very least.

Leo’s best food appreciation will come from food-aholic Taurus.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 23rd)

The health-conscious, moderate and discerning Virgo chooses wisely when it comes to nutrition.

Find them enjoying a salad bowl from Blazing Salads and a tasty salted caramel protein ball from Vandal.

The intelligent water sign makes the finest food match with Aquarius, discussing the merits of health and future foods, whilst putting the world to right.

Libra (September 23rd – October 23rd)

There’s no better dining partner than air sign Libra – the choice will always be yours, as they can’t make a decision.

That said, Libras are all about presentation and balance, and particular favourites would include the chicken borek dish from Keshk or gelato macarons from Amorino.

Pisces shares Libra’s elegance, making for a meal of mystic muse.

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 22nd)

Never one to deny the indulgence of temptation, water sign Scorpio loves to delight their taste buds with succulent, rich and strong flavours.

Scorpios can be seen enjoying dishes like the mega special burger from Tasty Hut, or tasting a sensual Belgian Chocolate Slice from The Cake Café.

Only with Cancer can Scorpio enjoy the company of someone who takes food as seriously as themselves. A culinary combination of indulgence and sensuality.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 22nd)

This fire sign isn’t often seen eating traditional Irish meals. No, Sagittarius has a flare for all things exotic and ethnic.

This may be a dish such as zaaluck from Morroco Gate or kimchi fried rice from Hailan Korean Restaurant.

Teaming up with curious Gemini is the best foodie fit for adventurous Sagittarius when it comes to strong flavours from lands far away.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 20th)

Practical Capricorn prefers to opt for the old reliable, tried and tested approach.

While Capricorn could venture into new tastes, it prefers to go back to basics with a B.L.T. from Amicus or a good old fish and chips from The Fryery.

Putting their thrifty heads together, Capricorn and Taurus can come up with a sumptuous evening feast, while still having plenty of leftovers to share in the morning. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Amicus Restaurant (@amicuscork) on

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

This sign always has a keen eye on the latest trends, and is the first person to be ahead of health trends. If it’s vegetarian or vegan, then great.

You’ll find Aquarius enjoying vegan porridge from Sprout and Co or munching on falafel bites with hummus tahini from Umi Falafel.

For an intense and enlightening experience, quirky Aquarius should share dinner tables with fellow food extremist, Scorpio. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Sprout & Co (@sproutfoodco) on

Pisces (February 18th – March 20th)

Romantic and refined, Pisces isn’t too concerned about what the food is as long as it creates a dream meal environment of pleasantry.

With this in mind, Pisces typically enjoys dishes like duck ramen from Slammin Ramen, or talking about the stars in the company of a warm and homely macchiato from Cocobrew Café.

Easygoing Pisces would dine well with earth sign Taurus who is happy to dine, unwind and just enjoy life. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Cocobrew (@cocobrew1) on

Joe Groves of Deliveroo spoke about the experience of partnering with an astrologer,

“It’s fascinating to see how our food preferences vary based on our horoscope, and working with Kate on this has been an enlightening experience."

He added; “Mercury may be in retrograde, but Deliveroo is not, and we will always endeavour to cater for every food preference, regardless of your zodiac sign.”

Amen to that. Now give us the goods before Leo season ends.

Small, Far Away Day, the fictitious July 19 holiday from Irish sitcom Father Ted, is nearly upon us and Deliveroo is celebrating this rejoiceful occasion by partnering with Sano Pizza in Temple Bar to bring a miniature food menu exclusively to Deliveroo. 

The holiday became a reality on social media years after the episode originally aired. In it, Father Ted and Father Dougal went on a holiday in a caravan. During their time, Ted struggles to explain to Dougal the difference between the concepts of ‘small’, and ‘far away’.

Image result for FATHER TED NEAR FAR AWAY GIF

Although Dougal struggles with this concept, Deliveroo does not, and these delicious treats are living proof of it. The exclusive to Deliveroo menu consists of a holy selection between far away (large) and small (mini) pizzas:

Marinara – Mini (€4) / Large (€7)

Margherita – Mini (€4.50) / Large (€8.90)

Diavola – Mini (€5) / Large (€9.90)

Joe Groves from Deliveroo said, “We are thrilled to be partnering up with the heavenly Sano Pizza, celebrating one of the greatest sitcom series of all time.

“While we do offer small foods, as can be seen, Deliveroo is never far away, with delicious meals delivered straight to your doorstep in thirty minutes or less,” he added. 

The hilarious ‘small, far away’ scene has gone down in history as one of the best one-liners of any sitcom, and despite the show being over twenty years old, the scene from the episode ‘Hell’ is fondly remembered today as TV gold in Ireland and the UK.

We're all eagerly anticipating the arrival of Stranger Things season three to Netflix this Thursday, and Deliveroo are helping us celebrate July 4 in a very special way.

The food delivery app and Brother Hubbard have collaborated to create Eggo Waffles in a tribute to everyone's favourite 80s sci-fi show.

The delicious treat will be available exclusively on the platform on July 4, in perfect timing to binge the show.

Stranger Things have inspired the Dublin favourite's new menu, with the gastro geniuses at Brother Hubbard creating both savoury and sweet variations of Eleven's iconic food staple.

Customers can decide between a peanut & jelly waffle sandwich, an shout out to all the times the characters are served up PB & Jelly sandwiches on the show, or get savoury with a dark waffle topped with buttermilk fried chicken, Thousand Island Sauce and Chipotle ‘Slaw.

The incredible creations are priced at €11 each (good one), they'll be around just in time for your Upside Down session in front of the TV screen.

The adolescent-led series has started a waffle phenomenon outside of the show, with Eggos rising in popularity once again as a result of Eleven. Good thing Brother Hubbard caught on to the trend fast…

Garrett Fitzgerald, Owner of Brother Hubbard said:

"Some of our customers love the series and a couple of us in the restaurant do too. When Deliveroo got in touch and asked us to create exclusive treats for the series' return, we couldn't wait.

"They certainly are an homage to the series and the nostalgia of it, but the waffles are also made with Brother Hubbard’s quirky flair and flavour that our customers know and love", he added.

With over 30 restaurants and takeaways signed up to the new service, including Eddie Rockets, Subway and Burritos & Blues, it will no longer be a twilight search for sustenance ending in disappointment.

No more burnt toast or undercooked microwave-able meals in the late night, it's time for deliciousness to arrive at your door after dark.

Deliveroo aims to provide the ultimate food delivery experience, and customers also have the option to schedule orders via the Deliveroo app up to a day in advance.

Joe Groves at Deliveroo commented on the new launch:

“We’ve added a late-night delivery service after overwhelming requests from hungry customers looking for their favourite bites late at night. We’re delighted we’ve been able to make it happen and with so many excellent partners on board that are available exclusively to Deliveroo customers”.

Bank holiday weekends might mean lie-ins, beer gardens and general laziness to most of us but this one will be different.

We all the know Grand Canal for being a stunning part of Dublin city but it is also covered in litter, affecting the environment and by extension, our planet.

So this Bank Holiday, why not team up with Deliveroo to help with its canal clean-up initiative?

Taking place on Saturday, May 4 at 10am to 6pm the volunteers will get a €10 Deliveroo credit voucher. 

Win-win, right?

The initiative, which was a great success in 2018, will be held along Charlemont Mall and aims to get more people involved with clean up activities.

Volunteers are invited to spend a small part of their Saturday picking up rubbish around the canal areas of Charlemont Mall.

Buckets, litter pickers, and gloves will be provided.

With the Bank Holiday Weekend fast approaching, rubbish along the banks of the canal and other public areas will have reached an all-time high.

Deliveroo has taken many strides to reduce its carbon footprint, with the introduction of sustainable, non-plastic, eco-friendly packaging over the past year as well as opt-in cutlery options.

A Spokesperson for Deliveroo said, ''It’s fantastic to see Irish people enjoying this spell of good weather as people eat and drink outdoors, but in doing so we must be respectful of the local environment.”

Sounds great to us, we'll see you there.
