Tesco Enchilada Cheese Travesty

Dh feels he is being misold his Enchildas.

The image on the packet shows them covered in a light but definite smothering of cheese.

Dh wishes to know how this is going to be achieved with the amount of cheese they have put on.

He feels he shouldn't have to use his own supply of cheese to obtain the enchilda that Tesco claim to supply within the packet.

Are Tesco being unreasonable cheese withholding asshats?

Or is dh a unreasonable cheeseyfucker who should damn well accept that amount of cheese as having been deemed adaquate by Tesco, and just eat them as they are, and stop lamenting?

I think your DH should write a strong letter of complaint to somebody who cares, then eat his darn dinner.

Cheese withholding asshat is a great insult

Try the Daily Mail. His sad face while holding the enchilada.

Write a letter! You'll get a voucher and can use it to buy more cheese!

Dinner's cooking now.

I'm in charge of complaining to companies. Ever since he purchased a limited edition bottle of Frjj and then phoned them up and asked the poor lady on the other end of the phone whatever had he done to them to "deserve drinking what ever it that you have put in this bottle. Why, why would you do this to me?" grin

He should have got Marks and Spencers enchildas, they are lovely, and cheesy.

I think it's a combo of Asshattery and Cheesyfuckery.

They because the cheese on the pack is definitely more generous than that within the pack and DH because how hard is it to grate some extra?

As an American, I am appalled at that pitfall amount of cheese. Complain!!

HotPinkWeaselWearingLederhosen Tue 26-Aug-14 19:31:39

Good point Coco, I've just said to dh "why didn't you get the M&S ones which are nice"

He replied "because I went to Tesco"

I can't argue with that

Should have got Costco enchiladas - they are enorme and tres cheesey.

I had a Tesco three cheese pizza the other day with hardly any cheese on it. Definitely a cheese conspiracy going on at Mr T.

<sniggers> What Frijj flavor was it.

Also, that is a crap amount of cheese.

HotPinkWeaselWearingLederhosen Tue 26-Aug-14 19:33:00

We have ready grated cheese <<posh>>

But his point is that he is having to use HIS cheese to make up Tescos cheese failure.

YANBU Tesco are cheese scrimpers.

Its false advertising, its criminal.

Report them to Advertising Standards.

HotPinkWeaselWearingLederhosen Tue 26-Aug-14 19:33:39

It was Popcorn flavour Frjj, so really he only had himself to blame.

scarletforya Tue 26-Aug-14 19:33:56

A serious dearth of cheesiness there. I would not be happy.

TaliZorahVasNormandy Tue 26-Aug-14 19:35:50

ewwwwww, what was he thinking?

AnimalsAreMyFriends Tue 26-Aug-14 19:36:53

Post the picture on their FB page with a "disappointed" message.

I did it about a pizza I brought from Morrisons (obviously I didn't post it on Tesco's FB!!!! grin ) Their customer service messaged me directly & sent me a load of vouchers!!!

A stern letter to the big cheese at Tesco is called for. CEO Cheese Executive Officer

CurlyBlueberry Tue 26-Aug-14 19:38:19

He is NBU. That amount of cheese is pathetic!

Yes yes, he could grate some more, but for all Tesco know the meal has been bought by someone with arthritis or something who would find it very difficult to grate more cheese. Therefore, IMO, they are being unreasonable.

HotPinkWeaselWearingLederhosen Tue 26-Aug-14 19:38:33

I've already complained to Tesco last week. Maybe Tesco just hate us.

DisgraceToTheYChromosome Tue 26-Aug-14 19:44:57

HINBU. But then given that Tesco cheat* customers, staff and suppliers equally, hardly unexpected.

*Obviously, this would only be at gin rummy, not in a business sense. I would never suggest otherwise given their lawyers.
