Asda launches new meal deal which is half the price of Tesco and others

Thoughts?

Asda

In the battle for a cheap dinner at work, nothing comes close to a classic meal deal in terms of value for money.

Well, Asda has just thrown its hat into the meal deal ring, offering a different version of the classic three items for a fixed price setup.

The supermarket previously didn’t offer a meal deal as it claimed its prices were already low enough.

Asda’s take on a meal deal is a bit different, essentially you can choose from between the 300 items in the Food to Go range, with the cheapest item coming free.

This means its meal deal starts at just £1.60, which is nearly half the price of Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s offerr -they all offer a drink, main item and snack for £3.

Meanwhile Asda is doing three for the price of two, meaning you’ll save between 38p and £4 per meal deal – the cheapest option is either the egg and cress, ham, or cheese and onion sandwiches (£1), an own brand mineral water bottle (38p) and packet of Walkers Baked crisps (60p), which will set you back £1.60 with the water coming free.

And it’s more flexible, meaning you don’t have to buy a sandwich, snack and drink, you could drop the drink and get two snacks, for example.

However, it can come in as more expensive than other supermarkets’ offers, like if you got the £2 ham and cheese sandwich, a can of Red Bull for £1.69 and a pack of crisps for 80p it would cost you £3.69.

So if – like most of us – your greatest meal deal pleasure comes from buying the most expensive things on offer and feeling like a king as it only comes to £3, you’re best off sticking with Tesco, Morrisons or Sainsbury’s.

But if it’s just a bargain you’re after, then Asda’s deal is already available in-store and online.

Lindt is combining its succulent white chocolate Lindor range with Candy Cane truffles for the perfect festive treat. 

The indulgent treats are a brand new flavour for the UK and are absolutely perfect for Christmas.

Combining deliciously smooth white Lindt chocolate with peppermint candy cane pieces and an oozy truffle centre.

Kevssnackreviews shared the new flavour on Instagram with the caption: “There’s crunchy candy cane pieces in the shell atop the classic smooth filling, it’s nicely minty but the white chocolate tempers the flavour so it’s not too overpowering.

“The chocolate melts in the mouth nicely leaving little crunchy candy cane pieces.”

The treats are available for £5.99 on GBGifts.co.uk but boxes are already selling fast so you’ll have to be quick! 

You can also get the truffles on Amazon but they come with a heftier price tag of £22.99, as the truffles come from America.

In other white chocolate news, you can now buy a white choc flavoured liqueur from Aldi that tastes just like a boozy Milkybar

The boozy treat, described as ‘a light yet luxurious cream liqueur with the classic flavour of cocoa butter and cream’, is part of their festive range and will set you back £6.99.
