People Are Putting Instant Coffee In Their Spaghetti Bolognaise For Some Reason
At least the caffeine would tackle that post-pasta slump.
Do not adjust your screens. This is a real thing.
As part of an in-store and outdoor advertising campaign, Sainsbury's is suggesting putting coffee into spaghetti bolognese. Some shoppers are incredulous.
Others are intrigued.
This spag bol fan tried it once and wouldn't recommend it.
Some were unsure of the quantity of coffee required.
Various coffee-spag-bol hipsters who've been doing this for literally ages didn't know what all the fuss was about.
Meanwhile, this is a very good question.
BuzzFeed News asked Sainsbury's if they are actually serious and they replied very swiftly to assure us they are.
Cath Wilkins, head of consumer PR for food at Sainsbury's, said: "It may sound unlikely but it really works, I promise you, having sampled it myself.
"The coffee adds a underlying depth of flavour that helps to balance the sweetness of the tomato-based ragu. Rather like adding chocolate to chilli con carne, which is another of our recommended twists – although that one is a little better known."
Just to recap, Sainsbury's really does want you to put instant coffee in your meat-based pasta dish.
There's even a video.
