I'm there! Consider them sold!

I've already filled the freezer with them. Just a shame I can't fit any more in. What a bargain.

poor Bernard, it almost makes me want to go round and wipe his brow in his Chinese rom/conservatory

Sales of these have apparently risen by 30%.

beansprout are you kidding????

No she's not. I think it's governed by the same mentality of the kids I teach when we discuss what goes into making cheapo sausages. At the end of the lesson there's always a few of them that say 'oh that's made me really hungry - I really fancy a sausage roll now...' and they head straight for the canteen.

I read that as well, if they are BOGOF though it is no wonder sales are rising....

Tesco have, over the past few weeks, had an amazing amount of crap food on special offer. I have put in a complaint on the instore suggestion cards asking why they can't do the same for proper food rather than all the junk. I don't really shop there as much as I used to, their fruit and veg areof shocking bad quality.

Maybe they are trying to clear out the stock of Turkey Twizzlers and other rubbish!

Shouldnt this be on the bargains thread-people might miss it here

twoifbysea... I have also stopped shopping at Tesco because of the shit fruit and veg!

example... I spend hideous amount on "Finest" plum tomatoes on the vine. 2 days later "and 2 days before the bbd) they are covered in thick hair!

We have also complained in store about the awful quality of their "fresh" meat. It is always going brown when you get it out of the packet.

I cannot believe sales have increased. I despair.

starlover, I bought Finest plum tomatoes and mine went mouldy in two days too...grrrrrr

Tesco schmesco. I'm going to live on a commune and grown my own vegetables.

I emailed them about their BOGOF on evil turkey twizzlers a while ago. Glad to see I hold such sway with the head of Tesco

starlover, i find the beef turns "brown" after a day or two, well before the best before date. IMO if beef is not red it is not fresh. it turns my stomach

That Bernard Matthews site is hilarious!! I particularly like the appetizing looking pork tendersteak "shaped into an attractive cutlet shape"

What's the 'Hungry for Success Anytime Formula' mentioned in connection with twizzlers, anyone know?

starlover Tue 05-Apr-05 10:38:27

it's vile isn't it? I now go to sainsburys, even though it is twice as far! Tesco is within walking distance for us, but I just get tired of wasting so much stuff because it goes off.
They were actually fined a while ago for selling skanky meat, but doesn't seem to have stopped them...
We tried the meat counter at Tesco, thinking it may be better than the pre-packed, but then saw them taking a big vacuum sealed lump of meat out of the fridge which looked like it had been frozen previously... so not FRESH at all!!!

When we visit my parents we stock up from their local butcher... at least we know it's fresh there.
wish there were some greengrocers round here as well though

starlover Tue 05-Apr-05 10:39:44

pmsl at turkey 2004!!!

I once cut into a melon I bought at Tesco only to find it hadn't defrosted properly and still had ice crystals in it. Had to bin the whole thing and go without.
