The line was launched in China and it comes in two 'Finger Lickin' Good' flavours, Original Recipe and Hot & Spicy.

Two lads living in London have listed an en suite room in their PS8-million penthouse for free.

All the pair ask for is someone who is "interesting" and "good company" to take up the room. In the listing on SpareRoom, landlord Andrew wrote: "We're two lads living in a large 4000-sq-ft penthouse in Paddington. We've successfully built and sold two well-known technology companies and are now working on the third. We'd like to find an interesting flatmate to hang out with - we don't need the money (hence the room is FREE!), but we want some good company - someone to hang out with, party with, bounce ideas around with and generally enjoy all that London has to offer."

A couple is being hailed as the modern-day Romeo & Juliet after meeting through Snapchat.

Reed Bjork and Abby Diamond met through the video-sharing mobile phone app and after Abby - who studies at Wisconsin University - spotted Reed on there. She then decided to upload a video to the university's website. She said: "To the guy wearing the Vikings jersey in the UW Snapchat Story, I'm seriously in love with you. Find me". Luckily, Reed's close pal spotted it and encourage him to reply. He wrote back: "To the girl from Memorial Library. It looks like they took down my first Snap. That's okay, if it's fate maybe they'll post this one. Meet me here."

Charity Chuggers were set the challenge to stop commuters in London to award them with tickets to the UEFA Euro 2016.

A team of four were briefed to operate outside a busy London train station and adopt the role of an everyday fundraiser, including the overzealous behaviour we are all familiar with from street fundraisers. The squad attempted to lure the public away from their busy days and anyone generous enough to stop and agree to give up 90 minutes for their nation were instantly rewarded with a pair of tickets to watch England at UEFA Euro 2016 as part of Carlsberg's UEFA Euro 2016 campaign, If Carlsberg did substitutions. Senior brand manager Dharmesh Rana commented: "As the official beer of UEFA Euro 2016, we want to build excitement ahead of the tournament this summer. As the domestic season comes to an end, our aim is to get the nation to substitute their clubs for their country. And, to be able to reward football fans with the chance to go France and support the England team is something we're really proud to do."
