Serving the taste of Wimbledon

On June 8, 2017, Posted by , In Blog, With No Comments

Ahead of the best grand-slam of the year we are celebrating the flavour of Wimbledon with these scrumptious treats! Ace the competition by offering your client these high-quality British-made treats. But before all that, lets backhand to tell you all about how this quintessential flavour first started being a smash on the courts of Wimbledon.

The Wimbledon tournament manages to get through more than 23 tonnes of strawberries and 7,000 litres of cream every year. But the link between the three elements – tennis, strawbs and cream – is mysterious. According to the Independent, strawberries and cream were first served together in 1509, when Cardinal Thomas Wosley paired them at a banquet during Henry VIII’s reign. The combination stuck and nearly 400 years later was among the offerings at the first Wimbledon tournament in 1877. So there you have it. Now lets serve the products!
