2. Fulfil your guilty pleasures with Häagen-Dazs's new chocolatey flavours

3. It's wine o'clock with the Penfolds 2020 Collection 

This year, Penfolds has not only unveiled the stunning Penfolds G4, but also released their 2020 collection—a curated line-up of multi-region and multi-vineyard blends; single-region wines; and a single-vineyard wine, all from Australia. It's a testament to the house style of winemaking and a showcase of refined red wines and complex white wines. Whichever you fancy, you'll be sure to want another glass.

The new releases display red wines of distinctive refinement and cellaring potential.
