I think you are being unreasonable for mentioning Gregg's cos now I want a sausage roll!

I can see what you are saying but it's the same with all offers, they are tempting you to buy more, supermarkets do have offers on fruit too, and they don't force you to buy it, and its all about balance I eat stuff that's bad for me but I eat good stuff to.

Greggs is a business and is expected to turn a profit. I am sure it costs a great deal less than 50p to produce one of their sausage rolls. The bogof's get people in so they see, and buy, more stuff. Thats how it works. Doesn't matter if the stuff is healthy/unhealthy or whatever.

Some people cannot afford Gregg's. sad

70p? Only 70p?

They are 90p round here...

Grumble, whinge, moan...

YANBU. As a small family this grinds my gears, I don't need 6 chicken breasts, I need 3. But I pay more per 3 than someone who needs or has room for 6 in the freezer.

It's your choice to spend more for something you don't want confused. I'm not sure you can blame Greggs for your inability to say no to a 30p sausage roll.

Our local Gregg's was closed the other day because a pigeon keeps popping in for a sausage roll and a fruit shoot

You grow oats in a hanging basket? Really? How?! I want porridge in my back garden! grin

I really want a Greggs now. sad

I totally agree with you though. It is shit that all the junk is the cheapest but it is so because it is so shit.

Tastes good though. grin

I think you're right. It is a huge issue that junk food is so cheap, too. It is a whole lot easier to become unhealthy and seriously overweight if you're struggling for money, because this stuff is cheap and quick and, as you say, a lot of it is marketed to make you buy more than you need.

I know people go on about how you could buy a sack of lentils and cabbage and make delicious farty soup for pennies, but you have to commit some time to that, don't you?

Tomorrow I can afford, just today. Gawd petty Betty.
