Here's some irony. Just got back from shopping in the expat's favourite supermarket in Doha. Iceland microwave chips, kebabs and deep fry chips, all stamped with the Iceland £1 price, all in excess of £5! Great, expensive cheap food.

I do think education is the key to improving diet but I agree that pricing is very manipulative.

secondcoming, this would make about 12 greggs size sausage rolls

Right can I report back that after eadng this thread, last night I made soup for the first time grin

Carrot and potato, not rerribly exciting, but add some cream and it looks good. Lunch time will reveal if it's actually any good....

I don't get this.

Yes multi buy offers take advantage of people and get them to buy more and on the case of food consume more than they necessarily want/need to but it's not only/always on junk food.

I find the greengrocers and fruit and veg market the absolute worst for this. Nothing is priced individually and quantities are enormous. Would much rather have bought 1 Mango for 20p than the 5 for £1 I bought today, but that's not the offer.

Anyway this argument is totally null and void. Have none of you ever even been in Iceland? You can buy frozen greggs sausage rolls, 4 for the princely sum of £1.50that you can cook whenever the fancy may take you!

Has anybody else noticed that the pastry on Greggs' sausage rolls has changed?

It seems puffier and drier than it used to be. Don't like them any more sad

The joke is that if 2 are £1, and one is 70p, she wants the 30p one.

I've just had a look at the special offers on the ASDA website. Straight away I saw mulitbuy offers for stir fry veg, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, mandarins, melons, various fruit salads, yogurts...
It's not just junkfood.

HollyBerryBush Thu 24-Jan-13 21:01:26

Let them eat buttered pasta.......

Bad enough you're poor but now you're decadent if you eat more than bread and water.

Marmalde - must just be people local to me then grin. A few times in recent months I've heard something along the lines of "c'mon this wean is starving, I'm away to buy her a Gregg's dummy...." found it quite amusing...
