YO! Serotonin-Packed Summer Menu

With mortgage rate rises, a negative news agenda and a looming recession, three in four Brits are actively looking for extra pockets of happiness now more than ever.

The research from YO! – the brand looking to cheer Britain up with a new serotonin-packed menu and relaunch of its iconic belt – shows that spending more time with friends/family (22%), getting out the house (14%) and listening to their favourite music (13%), are at the top of people’s lists to securing that little bit of joy, with 1 in 10 (12%) actively surrounding themselves with positive people.

So, alongside it’s mood-boosting menu, it’s also advised that the UK’s biggest celeb mood killers will not be welcome during its new ‘Happy Half Hour’ including former PM Boris Johnson, controversial newsman Piers Morgan and American rapper Ye (formerly Kanye West).
YO! has set its new rules as it reintroduces its kaiten belt to all UK restaurants and launches a ‘Happy Half Hour’ to help the 3 in 4 Brits who said they are looking for ‘extra pockets of happiness’ everyday with most (27%) people feeling a ‘happiness zap’ during an afternoon slump (between 2 – 5pm).

Its new menu is packed with foods proven to boost serotonin naturally, such as salmon, chicken, seaweed and eggs, to help provide happier and healthier vibes for the UK every day.

Happy Half Hour will see YO!’s new dishes served on the belt at 25% off for two weeks from Wednesday 28th June, 3pm-3.30pm.* Dishes include the new Big Maki, Sriracha chicken inari taco, Tuna non-stop, and Nigiri ‘n’ maki mix, as well as some of the much-loved YO! classics.

Victoria Mathers, UK Head of Marketing at YO! said: “Brits are looking for ways to bring pockets of happiness into their day-to-day lives, and we know that our menu contains a range of ingredients known to naturally boost Serotonin. The Happy Half Hour promises tasty food, joy, and a lift for that afternoon slump many of us experience.”
