What has caught our at­ten­tion in the news this fort­night…

Cap­tain Bird­s­eye

For gen­er­a­tions he’s been in com­mand of ad­ver­tis­ing Bird­s­eye’s fishfin­gers. But an eagle-eyed mil­i­tary en­thu­si­ast re­cently spot­ted Cap­tain Bird­s­eye ap­peared to have been de­moted, with just two gold stripes on his uni­form, de­not­ing the rank of lieu­tenant, in­stead of a cap­tain’s four. The wa­ters were quickly calmed by Bird­s­eye who said, “To keep him­self grounded, the cap­tain of­ten chooses to wear his hum­ble be­gin­nings on his sleeve.” Phew!

Diet av­o­ca­dos

If you’re a fan of av­o­ca­dos but not quite so keen on their calo­rie count (a typ­i­cal large fruit has about 330) you’ll be pleased to hear a diet ver­sion has been de­vel­oped by Span­ish firm Eurobanan. Grown un­der spe­cial soil and cli­mate con­di­tions, it pro­vides the same nu­tri­tional ben­e­fits but with less fat. Called The Av­o­cado Light it has all the health ben­e­fits of its larger cousin but a third less fat. They are also said to be juicier and to ripen faster. The down­side is they are only on sale in Spain, but de­mand could soon see them ap­pear­ing in Bri­tish shops.
