If you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months then you may be unaware that this year is the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, and all sorts of fantastic events are being put on in celebration of the momentous occasion. One of which is HP Sauce and Salad Cream’s royal makeover to mark the occasion.
This June, between the 2nd of June and the 5th of June 2022, we are set to enjoy a four-day long bank holiday to celebrate the Queen’s 70th year as a reigning monarch.
Heinz is renaming two of its more quintessentially British condiments HP sauce and Salad Cream to HM Sauce and Heinz Salad Queen. The limited-edition sauces will be available in all UK supermarkets from this week, ready for the June festivities.
Anke von Hanstein, a senior brand manager at Heinz, said: “This is an extraordinary moment for the Queen and the great British public, and we want to celebrate this with two of our most well-loved and historic sauces.
“Releasing limited-edition bottles in time for the Jubilee felt like the perfect fit.
“HP Sauce and Heinz Salad Cream have been on the dining tables of Brits throughout all the Queen’s reign, bringing delicious and distinctive flavours to our favourite meals.
“We hope our customers enjoy these celebratory designs and that they add a squeeze of fun to the Jubilee celebrations, however one is celebrating.”
Prepare for a big one by putting the tinnies in the fridge. Over the holiday weekend commemorating Queen Elizabeth II’s ascension to the throne, England and ales have been granted permission to extend their operating hours from 11pm to 1am.
The extended pub licensing hours for the Platinum Jubilee could possibly be a sign of things to come in Britain going forward as the minister for policing, Kit Malthouse, said the government wants to relax closing times for pubs.
Speaking to The Independent about the amendments to the Licensing Act of 2003 he said that there is currently an impact assessment being prepared.
It currently allows extended hours at moments of local, national and international significance, but could be relaxed further – which is great news for all.
