Bad news for The Happy Pear pesto lovers!

The Happy Pear has been forced to recall five different batches of their Lovely Basil Pesto after a mislabeling issue

The Irish company are taking a precautionary measure to recall the products as they may pose a health risk to those with an egg allergy.

"We can confirm that a voluntary recall of The Happy Pear Lovely Basil Pesto has been initiated because a very small number of tubs have been incorrectly labelled," reads a statement on The Happy Pear website.

The product has been withdrawn from sale because it contains a trace amount of egg and may be a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to egg."

"The product is perfectly safe for all other consumers."

So unless you have an egg allergy, the pesto should be good to eat.

The incorrectly labelled pots are from batches labelled 7030, 7033, 7037, 7039, 7044.

Anyone with an egg intolerance who has purchased one of the tubs is asked to refrain from eating it and return it to the store from which it was purchased. 


All this week, the lads behind the Happy Pear have been celebrating National Vegetarian Week like absolute pros.

From their unbelievable Jumbo Jaffa Cake to their Vegan Chocolate Lasagne, Dave and Steve know how to knock it out of the park when it comes to recipes which satisfy our sweet tooth without leaving us riddled with guilt.

And that, ladies, as we all know is no mean feat.

In addition to schooling us on desserts which don’t have to be chock-full of ‘processed baddies’, the HP lads have also reminded us that these incredible creations can work just as well under a Christmas tree or in a birthday gift-bag as they can in our own bellies.

We’re not sure whether we’re completely on board with that idea just yet, and we can’t promise we’ll try, but we’ll TRY to try.

Ladies, prepare to drool all over yourselves.



Ladies, the future is here.

There now exists a vegan dessert which undoubtedly trumps any other dessert we've laid eyes on in recent times, and in honour of National Vegetarian Week, we reckon you need to treat yourself to it pronto.

The Jumbo Jaffa Cake, which is both gluten and dairy-free, is everything you could want of a Happy Pear creation, and we are PUMPED at the thoughts of making our own this week.

If you're a little slow in the kitchen (Join the club ladies, join the club), then simply follow Dave and Steve's direction to flavour-town in this handy vid below.

Breathe girls, breathe.



If you're somebody who doesn't or can't drink, you probably know the struggle of trying to keep up with your plastered mates on New Years. 

You can go to the pub or club with them, but ultimately you'll either lose them or grow bored of their drunken antics. 

But for those who want to socialise, soberly, on New Years this year, there is another option. 

The Funky Seomra is an alcohol-free nightclub that has been running for the past seven years, yet mainly goes unnoticed. 

However, this year it's planning to be bigger and better than ever. 

The group is hosting an event at Filmbase in the heart of Dublin's Temple Bar. The night will begin at 9pm and run until 2.30am, with tickets going for €15 or €12 from here

There will be two dancefloors, three DJs, a smoothie bar and an organic cafe from The Happy Pear… Which sounds absolutely deadly, right?! 

David Mooney, the club organiser, said that these features will make the event unlike any other.

"Having massages, musicians, cafes, all makes it a very, very different atmosphere," he told The Journal

“New Year’s Eve is our busiest night. The people who come before know what to expect, but other people are a bit unaware.

“But you’re all in it together because you’re in the middle of Temple Bar but you’re the only place with no drink.”


Twin brothers Stephen and David Flynn, who are the owners of The Happy Pear in Greystones, Co. Wicklow have been treating their Twitter followers to some saucy snaps.

The pair have been enjoying the good weather by going for a dip in the ocean, and sharing the customary topless snap on Twitter, which has gained them plenty of attention – but they say it’s not a marketing campaign. Stephen said: “I suppose it’s just swimming season! It definitely is not an intentional marketing campaign.

“The pictures are just taken as all pictures are. You know, you’re down on the beach and it’s a beautiful morning or you’re at the cove enjoying it with the kids.”

Wait – did he say kids?

Yes, unfortunately there’s no point in rushing down to The Happy Pear if it’s a boyrfriend you’re after – both brothers are married.

Oh well, a muffin will have to do.
