National Express gives ‘Tastes of Normal’
Fish and chips flavoured sweets?
National Express is releasing its ‘Tastes of Normal’ limited-edition travel sweets.
They have been given a baffling range of flavours inspired by favourite dishes associated with British locations, including fish and chips, pork pie, Cornish pasty, Wensleydale cheese, Eccles cake and curry.
The National Express full UK timetable with hundreds of destinations is now on sale, allowing Summer bookings when restrictions are lifted. Customers can also book accommodation and attractions alongside their coach travel, complete with a price guarantee and ABTA protection.
“We hope the tastes will take people to a place they’ve missed and can now happily and safely return to with National Express” – Chris Hardy, managing director of National Express UK Coach
Chris Hardy, managing director of National Express UK Coach, said: “We suspended all services for 11 weeks at the beginning of the year so we’re delighted to now be back on the road with full measures in place to ensure passenger comfort and safety.
“As the UK’s largest coach operator, we’ve always been part of seeing friends and family, going to events, on day trips and holidays. We wanted to mark helping make this happen again in a fun way.
“Fish and chips and pork pies might not be the kind of flavours anyone would expect to taste in boiled sweet form, but each confectionary celebrates the wonderful diversity of the UK.
“We hope the tastes will take people to a place they’ve missed and can now happily and safely return to with National Express.”
The limited-edition sweets are being given away to the public via National Express social media channels (Instagram @nationalexpress,Twitter @nationalexpress and Facebook @NationalExpress) and the operator’s website.
