Take 5 With SPAR For A Chance To Celebrate Christmas With Donal Skehan


Cooking up a wholesome meal can sometimes seem like a chore – especially after a long day.

Fear not! We’ve something up our sleeves that will make things a little easier for you. Convenience and SPAR pretty much go hand in hand. There’s a local SPAR just about everywhere so it’s super handy to nip in, grab your bits and get home without all the faff. No one likes faff.

We’re joining forces with SPAR to show you just how easy it is to #take5withSPAR and serve up a tasty meal, no matter how little time you have.

How will we show you these tasty and delicious meals we hear you ask? Ah, this is where Donal Skehan comes in! If you’re not familiar with his show ‘Meals in Minutes’, allow us to lay it out for you: using SPAR ingredients, Donal creates simple and impressive meals that any Joe, or Josephine can recreate. Good man!

So, we’ve taken some foodie inspo to bring you two amazing competitions and even better prizes.
