saw this on a chat thread, cant belive its only 4p. Have addded it to next weeks online shop but was wondering if anyone else had tried it and if its ok?

yes I saw that thread as well. What could be in it for 4p?

haven't tried it but have tried a tin of their 5p stir fry veg, which were fine.

Went to buy more, to stock up for next camping trip but price has now increased to 59p!

have looked at the ingredients list, and it doesnt seem much better or worse than any other shop brought curry sauce. But 4p..... surely then packaging must be cost that?

I think they are doing the low prices to introduce a new line and then when people are seen to be buying it, they increase the prices massively.

Oh that makes sense cali. So it's worth bulk buying now then.

i have tried the asda 5p curry sauce (well the price jumps around 4p to 10p) and its really nice. i think others on here and have suggested adding stuff to it to spice it up a little

its quite bland but if you dont have any curry paste or spices it is fine...obviously you need to add quite a bit to it tho i suppose if desperate you could just have the sauce with rice

it reminds me of school curry

It's a 'loss leader'; it must cost them more than 4p to make! They have also been selling tinned beansprouts for 5p.

Its very much like school curry sauce but quite nice with chips!

I had a tin last week and was pleasantly surprised.

I have bought some more for this week, gonna add leftover chicken from the roast & some mushrooms and maybe a little bit more curry powder for our Monday night dinner.

chip shop curry sauce is what it reminds me of. Fine as a base for a spicier curry but just as good for on chips just as it is smile

Not sure about the Tesco one, but the Sainsburys one is delish! think theirs is only 4p too!
