Rivers of chocolate, everlasting gobstoppers or candies the size of castles, Willy Wonker certainly knew how to seduce the sweet toothed.
To celebrate Shrove Tuesday, 8th March, Giraffe, the global restaurant group, is encouraging you to indulge all your sugar-coated fantasies and ‘Pimp Your Pancake’ in keeping with the day of eating, feasting and excess before Lent.
Forget ‘Pimp Your Ride’ and ‘Pimp Your Snack’, between 8th – 11th March diners will be given the chance to pimp their own pancakes, big-up theirbreakfast or super-size their sweet.
Available from 8am* until 4pm, Giraffe’s stacked American style pancakes will be served with your choice of toppings to ‘pimp’ or eat as you see fit, from just £5.95 per person.
Guaranteed to please big and little people alike, additional toppings include everything from marshmallows to maple syrup, Crunchie to caramel sauce and Baileys to blueberries. Want to add more pancakes to your pile? You can. Order as many or as few as you fancy and see how high you can go.
Better still, pimps can win prizes. Post a picture of your pancake dish on Facebook.com/girafferestaurants via the events page and send in your recipe or method to be in the chance to win a foodie feast for you and up to five of your friends. Pictures may be posted from 8th – 20th March. Comments will be courted from Facebook fans and the King Pimp will be chosen by popular consensus by 28th March 2011.
