Meeting Marmalade and making cookies with intu Merry Hill

Thursday, 31 May 2018
If you are local you may have seen the recent mysterious happenings over at intu Merry Hill. Initially, a crushed car was found in the car park with the only evidence being large footprints and tufts of orange fur. Then something was spotted on the CCTV of the centre, what could it have been?

Well, all was revealed on Saturday when intu Merry Hill revealed their new mascot Marmalade the Mammoth.

To celebrate Marmalade, there are lots of fun activities happening at the centre, from today until Sunday you can take part in Marmalade Cookie classes where you can make your own sweet treats with Marmalades favourite treat. 

Today, we headed along to intu Merry Hill to not only meet Marmalade himself but to also attend the Marmalade's Factory and make some cookies.

We headed there early so we could meet Marmalade before our session began and to grab a bite to eat and wonder around the shops. At midday Marmalade was out stomping around the centre for all to meet, he enjoys nothing more than cuddles and tickles. 
Initially, Jack was a little nervous about going near to Marmalade, but he soon overcome that and before leaving the centre we met him another twice. Isla still wasn't unsure, until we got home where she declared she wanted to go and give him a cuddle, too late now!

At our time slot, we headed along to Marmalade's Factory which is located just in front of customer services on the lower mall and got ourselves ready to make some cookies.

All of the ingredients were weighed and measured for us and lay out ready for us to use. Once hands were washed and everyone was ready, as a group everyone individually made their cookies following the lead of the hosts. There were plenty of learning opportunities throughout and we even learnt how marmalade was made.

 Once our cookies were complete we put them to one side so they could be placed in the oven and cooled down and we were to come back after 30 minutes.

Enough time for us to scoot around some more shops, and for us, a trip to intu Merry Hill wouldn't be complete without going into the Disney Store so that was our final call. Of course, we picked up some treats before heading back to collect our cookies before heading home.

We have all had a fantastic day at intu Merry Hill, meeting Marmalade and getting to make some cookies. It was certainly a fun day during the holidays. 

There is still chance for you to meet Marmalade and make some cookies until Sunday. 
Marmalade will be stomping through the centre at various times throughout the day which can be found here. If you want to have a go at making some cookies of your own, then you can book in advance to secure your slot here.  

Why you're over on the intu Merry Hill site, why not join the family club? It's a new scheme recently started where you can pick up some exclusive discounts within a variety of the stores and also pick up a special treat for your little one. The family club is available at all intu centres, not just Merry Hill so if you are local to one of the others, you can join there too.
