Deliveroo

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.

Joe Groves of Deliveroo said, “We’ve been known to place some stranger things on the menu from time to time, hello Creme Egg Quesadilla! So there’s no better time to do so than with the return of this series. 

The Stranger Things-inspired waffles will be available on the Deliveroo app or website from the night of July 4 for one week only (excluding Sunday and Monday). 

What better way to celebrate the return of one of the world's most beloved shows? Get in the 80s mood, grab a Rubix cube and some binoculars and get ready for some strange treats.

Pride is the greatest month of the entire year; it's full of rainbow colours, glitter and love in all it's wonderful forms. What could improve such a glorious time? Free ice cream, that's what.

Thanks to Deliveroo, a kiss cam is being launched in Dublin in celebration of World Pride Month. 'Scoop for Pride' allows anyone who locks lips to get a free scoop of delicious gelato.

Kissing and ice cream? This is a miracle. The Deliveroo app is now being updated to Deloveroo on their home screen, and showing love is being hugely encouraged by the food delivery service.

The month celebrates activists who fought hard for LGBTQ+ equality over the years, taking a stand against violence and prejudice in 1969 at the Stonewall Inn in NYC.

Following a police raid at the bar, it's been 50 years of rebounding discrimination, but June reminds us to keep pushing for equality and love for everyone.

100 percent of donations from Deliveroo's Kiss Cam with Scoop for Pride will be given to BeLong To youth services. Dublin Pride takes place on June 29, and we are SO excited.

The kiss cam will open in Merrion Square from 12pm until 4pm, and thousands of free gelato will be given away to those daring enough to lock lips.

Deliveroo will send the adorable images via email to each participant, so a memory of that special kiss will live on forever.

You can receive a starring role in Dublin pride if you can make it on to Deliveroo's giant kiss cam screen.

The limited edition Deloveroo rider kit will also be available for free to those who wish to show their support for Pride this June.

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.

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.

Time will tell what we'll be stuffing into our faces this summer, but it seems the rest of Ireland are on a mad health kick?

It's probably time we join in on that trend, instead of sticking to what we know…

We've all stumbled in from a night out and craved every single type of food in the galaxy, but opening hours of these glorious fast food institutions have held us back.

It ain't our fault that we get snacky around midnight, and why should we have to cater our food bingeing needs on time? Well, Deliveroo is here to deliver the answer to this age-old problem on a silver platter. 

That's right. The food-delivery service has just announced new and extended delivery hours, so from today in Dublin, Cork and Galway you can now order the likes of Supermacs, Papa John's and KFC to your door as late as 2am.

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.

Whether your Easter traditions involve a raucous family egg hunt or enjoying the cut-price Easter eggs in the days following the chocolatey celebrations, one thing is for sure: Easter is one indulgent holiday.

Many families go all out and do a big roast dinner to mark the occasion, or simply fill up on delicious chocolate. 

To honour the Easter weekend, one popular Mexican mecca on Irish soil is melding the sweet and the savoury into a very intriguing Frankenfood. 

The avocado pizza, the cronut, the carrot latte and the unicorn anything dominated the 2017 frankenfood trend charts. 

In 2018, we saw the eggs benedict doughnut, the crossushi and salted watermelon. 

2019 kicked off with the sushi sandwich, and now another iconic food pairing has been blended. 

Boojum has a massive Irish fan base, with their burritos making the 4th most ordered dish globally on Deliveroo in 2018, and the food favourite has risen again to create a bespoke miracle for Easter.

Teaming up with an Easter classic, the Cadbury's Cream Egg, Boojum's speciality team at Quesadillas by Boojum have collaborated to concoct the Cadbury's Cream Egg Quesadilla.

The traditional Mexican flat bread has been reimagined to host the sweet treat, as well as a generous helping of the sumptuous Cream Egg goo poured over top. Is that the unmistakable sound of growling stomachs we hear? 

Joe Groves at Deliveroo says: It is a privilege to partner with the amazing team at Quesadillas by Boojum to bring this bizarre creation directly to our customers’ doorsteps or desks.'

'Two things we absolutely love in Ireland are Boojum and chocolate, and since our creativity knows no bounds, we thought, ‘why not bring these two together?' they finished. 

If this sounds like something that would be right up your alley, here's how to get your hands on one: 

The Creme Egg Quesadillas will be available exclusively from the Deliveroo app or website during Easter.

They launch on Wednesday, April 17th and are available to order up until Easter weekend – with Quesadillas by Boojum of Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Belfast and Derry all participating.

If you're not feeling like cooking over Easter, this could be the perfect treat to satiate the salivating family you might have around, or if you will be spending the holiday solo, it could be ideal for a quiet night in foodie experience. 

The dish is priced at €9.50 (ROI) and £7.50 (NI) respectively – happy hunting.

It's the day of Barry White and overpriced roses…Happy Valentines Day ya'll.

And if anyone's thinking of having a seductive night in with your other half (or better yet, yourself) then we have good news for you.

Deliveroo is teaming up with Scoop on Aungier Street to create a limited edition Valentine’s Day aphrodisiac ice -cream.

Yes, you read that right: aphrodisiac.

This flavoursome, libido-enhancing ice-cream is aptly name ‘Ice Scream’ and is available from exclusively from the Deliveroo app or website for one day only on February 14.

SO GET ORDERIN' LADS.

Oysters are notoriously famous for getting us in the mood *wink wink* and were made famous by Casanova, the 18th-century lover, who used to devour 50 oysters for breakfast a day.

Oysters and champagne have been traditionally associated with having aphrodisiac properties, so whether it’s for love or lust – this ice cream is much to be desired.

Bobby Burns at Deliveroo said, “This Valentine’s Day, we intend to play Cupid for those looking to embrace the holiday of love to the fullest extent.

He continued, ''We’re very happy to work with Scoop, who share our passion for pushing boundaries with innovative and delicious treats.''

So what are you waiting for?

We know what we'll be stocking up on tonight – happy day of romance one and all.

January has almost drawn to a close, and if you managed to maintain your healthy eating resolution, fair play to you. 

You weren't alone, with Deliveroo seeing a 63% increase in the number of healthy orders made to offices for lunch across Ireland, particularly in Dublin and Cork. 

According to data accumulated by the foodie app, certain careers enjoy particular cuisines the most: 

Work in Finance? You might enjoy a standard lunch.

Deliveroo found that accountancy employees order classic sandwiches and wraps, while their investment services counterparts are a tad more adventurous, enjoying halloumi and grain salads, focaccia and artisan sandwiches. Swit swoo. 

Business and Consultancy workers tend to like a protein packed lunch with lean meats. This sector orders mainly from modern Greek restaurants.

Tech workers seem to enjoy the taste of Asian cuisine, ordering mainly Japanese foods such as sushi, ramen and noodles.

Advertising and Marketing employees are focused on a vitamin-infused breakfast, ordering double the amount of juices and smoothies versus any other profession.

They also favour brunch over lunch ordering egg pots, avocado toast, acai bowls or yoghurts, often in bulk for those morning meetings.

Engineering workers on the other hand, crave a good carby Italian to get them through the afternoon, ordering the most pizza and pasta out of all the professions. Delish. 

According to Deliveroo, those working in the Law sector make the most amendments to their lunch orders and love a good salad, just add extra chicken, remove the bread and give them extra sauce.

Whether you're avoiding sweet treating, ditching the booze or trying your hand at Veganuary, well done you if the integrity of your New Year's Resolution has remained intact. 

However, we regret to inform you that tomorrow is the day that most people fall of the wagon. 

According to Deliveroo, on Wednesday they are set to see a significant jump in orders of alcohol and sweet treats – hardly a coincidence? 

17 days without gin and tonics or refined sugars is enough of a detox for us, thanks. 

The exact time people give into temptation is in the magic half hour marker of 18.34pm.

When it comes to booze, Deliveroo saw a spike of 67% in prosecco, wine and beer orders during December but demand plummeted by 49% from January 1st, with many deciding to take part in Dry January.

Though it seems that two weeks, one day, eighteen hours and thirty four minutes is enough for Irish January teetotalers.

Veganuary is particularly popular this year, and those who partake seem to have more willpower than their alcohol or sugar abstaining resolutioners.

On average, Irish participants of the plant-based effort last the entire month.

Deliveroo reports a whopping 203% increase in the number of vegan dishes ordered on Deliveroo in comparison with January 2018.

However, last February there was an increase of 53% in burger orders as many went back to their omnivore diet. Deliveroo predicts another increase this February 1st, when Veganuary ends.

Whether you're ready to throw in the towel right now or have disbanded your resolution days ago, we have to say that one evening of indulgence won't ruin the entire diet and exercise plan you have going on. 

However, if you manage to soldier on through the day of retracted resolutions with your's intact, then fair play. 

We know what we'll be choosing… *opens Deliveroo app*

Veganuary is in full swing, where individuals challenge themselves to adopt a vegan diet for the first month of the new year. 

Veganism has become pretty popular these days, with the number of vegans in the UK rising by 360 per cent in the last 10 years, according to a recent study by The Vegan Society.

With this in mind, we're sure there are plenty of Irish people willing to try the vegan lifestyle, which strictly prohibits the consumption of any animal by-products. 

Veganism has been cited to improve the health, aid weight loss and be better for the environment than a carnivorous diet according to its followers. 

Deliveroo has reported that orders of vegan takeaways have increased by 203% on last year. 

'December’s excesses mean that we all often spend January trying to make more conscientious decisions when it comes to food' said Bobby Burns at Deliveroo.

'Each year there’s pressure to create and follow a new year’s resolution. Deliveroo makes it easy by offering healthy food choices, making it easy to stick to those changes.'

Deliveroo is encouraging curry lovers to give The Garden of Vegan's new offering a go. A comforting vegan curry consisting of chickpeas, lentils, sweetcorn, and roasted potato, cooked with cumin seeds and tumeric is on the menu courtesy of the Ranelagh based restaurant. 

It's also National Chicken Curry Day on 12th January, so if you needed another excuse there you have it.

Looks like we'll have to have a burrito in celebration of Boojum's success – well done, lads.
