As it's Shrove Tuesday today, households all over the country have filled their pantries with heaps of chocolate spread, bananas and any other toppings they like to adorn their pancakes with. Aside from consumers, however, this day is also welcomed with excitement by companies as they look forward to taking advantage of the trend on social media to generate some buzz for their own brand.
