I am the insufferable, clich√© girl that studied abroad in London and am still talking about studying abroad in London seven years later. And now, this is the perfect opportunity for me to do just that because the beloved UK store Marks & Spencer (have you been? I have! It’s where I studied abroad) is bringing its signature food and beverage to the US.¬†

The retail chain is teaming up with Target to bring some of its fan-favorite products to America for the holidays, Food & Wine reports.

The pair have put together a 15-item collection “anchored by items that signal the joy of the holiday season” with “exquisite and interactive packaging (some light up, play music, etc.) that guests will be proud to gift and excited to consume.¬†

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
