Move over sushi, it’s time for ‘Frushi’ as Waitrose launch a new type of sushi that’s made with fruit instead of fish!
After becoming the first supermarket to sell sushi in the UK 20 years ago, Waitrose have now become the first UK supermarket to sell fruit sushi as they add to their range with their new ‘Frushi’ packs. Frushi already exists in the US, Waitrose said, where it has been gaining popularity, but it’s now gathering interest in the UK thanks to foodies posting photos on Instagram and Pinterest.
The new range of ‘frushi’ is made with delicious fruit centres enrobed with sushi rice and then coated with toasted desiccated coconut fruit centres for a tasty tropical treat, and are available in 270 of their 346 stores across the country. We got in touch with Waitrose, and the good news is that their Frushi packs are suitable for vegans!
Each pack costs £2.35, and contains two absolutely scrumptious sounding rolls made with melon, pineapple and mango and two rolls with blueberries and a mint and mango coulis.
Shaun Birrell, sushi buyer at Waitrose said: “Frushi is a delicious on-the-go snack, a great substitute for dessert or can even be enjoyed for breakfast. And for those who fear that it might be accompanied with soy sauce or wasabi, fear not there’s not a drop in sight.”
