The Most WTF Christmas Food Launches Of 2020 (So Far)
However, we could all use some early cheer right now. So, what better way to kick off festivities than seeing what novelty food items retailers are offering up.
From some, erm, unique flavour combos to some truly innovative seasonal snacks, brace yourselves, because the holidays are coming – and here’s what you could be scoffing down soon.Related... The Top Mince Pies Of 2020 – And Other Festive Food Worth Buying 1. McVitie’s Christmas Pudding BiscuitsHad enough of dunking plain old chocolate biccies in your tea? Well, now you’re in luck. The good people at McVitie’s heard your biscuit woes and they’re bringing out some new festive seasonal flavours. Dash through the SNOW to be one of the first to try the Gingerbread or Christmas pudding varieties. Expect all the choccy goodness of the unbeatable OG digestive, but with the additional flavour of the nation’s favourite festive pud. Someone pop the kettle on, will ya?
Available in Asda, Morrisons, Nisa, Co-op, and Spar stores across the UK at £1.50 a packet.2. Brussels Sprout VodkaChristmas was never all fun and games. Nobody actually enjoys being forced to eat a sprout, but it’s a rite of festive passage. The humble veg – small, green, smells of rotten egg when over-boiled – is unfailingly the most divisive item on any Christmas menu. Luckily, Nelson’s Distillery have bottled that mini-cabbage flavour into Brussels Sprout vodka form. This love-it or hate-it seasonal green tipple is only around for a short time only, so get it while you can. 
Available from Nelson’s Distillery at £25. 3. Sainsbury’s Pigs in Blankets Flavour Noodles Some (mad or excellent, we can’t decide) genius from the research and development team at Sainsbury’s has plucked the best item from the Christmas menu and created pigs in blanket-flavoured instant noodles. Slurp up the taste of Christmas without the usual effort. Imagine your fave tiny herby sausages wrapped in smoky bacon, but you’re actually eating slippery noodles. Oh, and it’s vegetarian too – talk about a mindfuck. Ideal for that post-Zoom Christmas party hangover cure.
Available in Sainsbury’s stores and online available now at £1.
 4. Christmas Tree Colin The CaterpillarEveryone’s favourite caterpillar has undergone a festive makeover, complete with Santa hat, edible decorations, and cute little red booties. This seasonal Colin combines the classic chocolate sponge roll with chocolate buttercream covered in delicious milk chocolate. If even the office go-to log-shaped sponge roll can be bothered to dress up for the Christmas party season, then you really have no excuse. Even if we have nowhere to go.
Available in M&S stores and online for £10.Related... Colin The Caterpillar Is 30. Let's Revisit Our Ultimate Taste-Test  5. Aldi’s Giant Ferrero Rocher Picture the scene. Christmas day. Crackers have been pulled, bad jokes told, that novelty miniature cheese grater pocketed like you don’t have a proper-sized one, and everyone is wearing multicoloured paper hats. You’ve had the most delicious roast Turkey dinner with all the trimmings and your chosen six family members (or friends). You couldn’t possibly eat another bite as you loosen a few notches on your belt. Dessert? No, you’re so full you might explode. Then suddenly you see it in all its chocolate spherical glory.
Aldi’s giant Ferrero Rocher: a chocolate praline dome, filled with milk chocolate and hazelnut mousse, milk chocolate feuilletine, and a cocoa sponge cake, encased in a hard chocolate and hazelnut shell. It’s like the classic gold-wrapped version but 10 times better (and bigger). This is what the true meaning of Christmas is about. Christmas is saved and all is right in the world again.
Available in Aldi stores from October 26 as a limited edition for £4.99.6. Fudgeina Advent CalendarThought 2020 couldn’t get any weirder? Well, think again. Enter: an advent calendar filled with edible chocolate vulvas. Open the door to 24-mini ‘fudgeinas’, which come (ahem) in milk, white and dark Belgian chocolate, and, yes, are shaped like private parts. Countdown to Christmas by eating out chocolate vulva every day in December. Because, why not?
 Available at Fudgeina.com for £24.99 
 7. Haribo StarmixmasThe kids and grown-ups love it so, but would you love it so if the happy world of Haribo was Christmas-fied? Starmixmas are the same gummy sweets found in a classic bag of Starmix, but the only difference is all-new Christmas flavours. Expect cherry trifle heart, gingerbread bears, eggnog eggs, Apple strudel bottles, and cherry and eggnog crumble rings. There are people out there in the world who are trying to screw with our minds – and we’re not sure if we can handle it.
Available wherever you buy your sweets.8. Roast Potato CrispsEver looked at golden crispy roast potatoes and thought ‘I wonder these would taste like as crisps?’ well, wonder no more because Co-Op has done just that. Their seasonal festive roast potato crisps are... How do we put it politely? Well, they’re already made from potato? Does this mean they’re potato-flavoured potatoes – or do we smell a tactical marketing ploy to upsell the humble spud?
Apparently, there is more to these double carb-on-carb action hand-cooked Herefordshire potato crisps – they’re seasoned with Cornish sea salt, rosemary, roasted garlic, and black pepper. So, essentially your standard *fancy* flavoured posh crisp.  
Available in Co-Op stores and online at £1.75 for a 150g bag. Related... Christmas Isn't Cancelled, But Here's What It'll Look Like In 2020 Here's How Likely It Is You Had Covid Back In December Opinion: If Christmas Isn't Cancelled, Boris Johnson Will Have To Answer Questions About Eid

Star Wars Director Says It's About Time A Woman Makes A Star Wars Movie
Jan 02, 2024
Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Sharmeed Obaid-Chinoy is directing an upcoming Star Wars movie that brings back Daisy Ridley in the role of Rey. Obaid-Chinoy will become the first woman to direct a Star Wars film, dating back to the franchise's origins in the 1970s. Speaking about this, Obaid-Chinoy told CNN that she is "very thrilled" to make the movie and create something that is "very special.""We're in 2024 now, and I think it's about time we had a woman come forward to shape the story in a galaxy far, far away," she said.Obaid-Chinoy won Best Documentary, Short Subjects Academy Awards for Saving Face (2012) and A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (2015).In 2020, Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy told the BBC that a woman would eventually direct a Star Wars movie, saying that would "absolutely" happen, "without question." Victoria Mahoney was a second unit director on The Rise of Skywalker, but a woman has never claimed a top directing credit on a Star Wars movie.On the TV side of things, The Mandalorian has featured a number of female directors, including Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard. Chow went on to direct the Obi-Wan TV series, too.Another high-profile franchise that has never had a female director is James Bond. Producer Barbara Broccoli and Skyfall director Sam Mendes have both said they want to see a woman direct a future 007 film.As for Obaid-Chinoy's Star Wars movie, little is known about it apart from the fact that Ridley will come back to play Rey. It is expected that this film will be the first of the three new Star Wars films to come to theaters, possibly releasing in December 2025.According to a report, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight is writing the Rey movie, taking over for Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson.

NBA Names Clare Akamanzi CEO Of NBA Africa
Jan 02, 2024 15:29
The NBA named Clare Akamanzi – an accomplished business executive and international trade and investment lawyer – as CEO of NBA Africa. Akamanzi will start her position on Jan. 23, 2024, and report to NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum. In this role, Akamanzi will oversee the NBA’s business and basketball development efforts in Africa and will be responsible for continuing to grow the popularity of basketball, the NBA and the Basketball Africa League (BAL) across the continent, including through grassroots basketball development, media distribution, corporate partnerships, and social responsibility initiatives that improve the livelihoods of African youth and families. For the last six and a half years, Akamanzi was CEO of Rwanda Development Board (RDB), where she spearheaded Rwanda’s economic development by enabling private sector growth. Under Akamanzi’s leadership, RDB implemented several business policy reforms and initiatives that led to significant investment and development for the country, including through partnerships with the BAL, Arsenal FC, Paris Saint-Germain FC, FC Bayern Munich and TIME Magazine, among others. “Clare’s business acumen, international experience and familiarity with basketball and the NBA make her the ideal executive to lead our business in Africa,” says Tatum. “NBA Africa and the Basketball Africa League are well-positioned for continued growth, and under Clare’s leadership we believe these initiatives will transform economies, communities and lives across the continent.” “I’ve seen firsthand how sports can positively impact businesses, families and communities in Africa, and the NBA and the BAL are a perfect example of that,” says Akamanzi. “The NBA has done an incredible job growing basketball and the economy around it across the continent, and I’m excited about the enormous opportunities ahead to build on that momentum.” Previously, Akamanzi was Chief Operating Officer of RDB and Head of Strategy and Policy Unit, Office of the President of the Republic of Rwanda. She has extensive international trade, business and diplomatic experience, having previously worked for the Rwandan Government at the World Trade Organization in Geneva, Switzerland and at the Rwandan Embassy in London, England. Akamanzi has worked or studied in seven different countries and holds an honorary LLD from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, in recognition of her work in Rwanda. She earned a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was the recipient of three prestigious awards for academic excellence and distinguished contribution to the community: the Lucius N. Littauer Fellows Award, the Raymond & Josephine Vernon Award and the Robert Kennedy Public Service Award. In addition, Akamanzi holds a Master of Laws degree in international trade and investments from the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and a Bachelor of Laws degree from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Akamanzi has served on several company boards, including the World Health Organization (WHO) Foundation, ECOBANK and Aviation, Travel and Logistics (ATL) company. She was recognized by Forbes as one of Africa’s Top 50 Powerful Women in 2020.
