New Discount Added

Another wonderful discount exclusive to Keble Discount Card holders…

Bolitas – 10% off

Originally from the State of Minas Gerais – Brazil, Bolitas™  are the most popular Brazilian snack. They are cheese flavoured balls made with cassava flour and cheddar cheese.  Oven baked from frozen, they are best eaten warm as a tasty addition to coffee or tea, as after school munchies, anytime snack, or as appetizers before lunch and dinner parties. Bolitas™ go well with wine or juice, are divine with beer, and are fantastic with  coffee which brings out the unique taste and flavour. However you try it, one thing is for sure, you will never have just one …. That is a warning!

Casa das Bolitas, Covered Market, Oxford


Treat yourself for the beginning of a new year
