Christmas & New Year Opening Times

We’ve been so very good this year that we’ve decided to treat ourselves to a few days off over Christmas and the New Year. 

We will close at 5.00pm (ish) on Christmas Eve and will re-open at 9.30am on  Tuesday 4th January 2011.

We’d like to say a very big thank you to all of our customers for making 2010 a great year.  So here’s wishing you a Cool Yule and a peaceful and prosperous 2011.

Something to Warm the Cockles

Like everyone else, we’re feeling the cold this winter.  We’ve found a great way to keep out the chill with Rochester Organic Hot Toddy.  New to us this year, this is a lovely warming mixture of of ginger, lime, orange, lemon & honey.  It’s non-alcoholic, but it really hits the spot.  Obviously there’s nothing to stop you from adding an extra drop of what you fancy if you’re lucky enough not to be the designated driver.

We also have the other  seasonal non-alcoholic favorites Rochester Mulled Berry Punch, Yorkshire Punch and Rochester Ginger.

If you’re nearby on Thursday, drop in for a taste of Hot Toddy and let us know what you think.

Blasta Gift Vouchers

Run out of ideas for that perfect Christmas gift for the foodie in your life?

We have Blasta Wholefoods gift vouchers in denominations of €5, €10, €20 and €50. There’s no sneaky stuff like expiry dates & we make sure that the recipient will receive the full face value of the voucher.

We’re even open this Sunday 19th December from 2.00 pm til 5.00 pm, so there’s no excuse for not getting your Christmas pressies sorted.

Christmas Pud Heaven

Its Christmas Pudding Heaven here at Blasta Wholefoods.  We have an enormous range of puds this year including Gluten Free, no added Sugar and Organic.

Stars of the show this year are some Irish made artisan puddings.  Delicious, the Gluten Free bakery from Ballincollig Co. Cork have produced some lovely gluten free puds, individual Christmas cakes and super mince pies for the Ceoliacs in your life. 

I’ve been banging on about Green Saffron spices all year & now Arun & Olive from Midleton have produced the most wonderful Christmas puds packed with warm exotic spices.  We had one of these ourselves last year and it was without doubt the best Christmas pud I’ve ever had.  This year they’ve added a Gluten Free Christmas pud to the range.
