Security tags on basic food items.


Recommended Posts

I can remember rationing after the war. Never thought I'd see this. I know its a feeble hope, but this article should be top of the government's agenda.

Shoppers took to social media to share pictures of security tags on £3.99 blocks of Aldi cheddar and £8 lamb chops in a nearby Co-op store in Wolverhampton...

Best to just eat your stuff in the shop 

exactly country is f****d but has billions to send all over 

How many of these 'poor people' have a 60" TV, the latest mobile, and smoke 40 a day?

None of this in my local Asda, Lidl, Aldi.

Yes things have gone up, but if anyone is daft enough to pay nearly £8 for Lurpack, good luck to them, same as the idiots who pay £8 for a pint !

Just boycott the profiteers, it was a crime during the war......should be now !

Cheers.

Who buys that shit buy the f***ing kilo!?

I haven't noticed anything particularly mental about the price of actual butter.

My missus mentioned this article about Lurpack, but on reading into it it was for 3/4 of a kilo !

Yes, as I've said, prices are going up, but this particular item is just MSM sensationalism.

Judging by some of the reaction, it's working ! 😂

Cheers.

Should be buying British butter anyways, the local shop was saying it was 7.50 a pack in asda didn't mention per kilo, lol. Local shop is a bit of a rip off that's how it came up, charged my son £2 for a tiny shitty flake Cornetto. Asked my boy if he felt it was worth the £2 he said yes definitely.....

It could be due to people struggling but I'd imagine it's because they're things the door to doors have always lifted

My misses is a baker and uses stork for baking; in the last year it has gone from £2.10 to £3.25. May not sound much but like alot of other stuff it has gone up over 50% when they're saying inflation is 10% ... how do you justify the additional cost to people's food shops? You can't imo, someone on the breadline who has £50 to do a shop is getting half what they did last year. 

We've also noticed through looking back through her books (we were on about this the other night) that things have just been creeping by a few pence here and there.

I guess the security tags are in impoverished areas of the UK. And there are plenty of deprived areas of the country. It shows how desperate a lot of folk are.

Alot if 'smaller' shops are dearer just because imo they can be. Co-op is a prime example of this and using my misses as an example again .... she asked me to grab her a few bits which I would normally get from tescco but couldn't be bothered so stopped at the bigger coop. Same stuff was over double the price but wasn't double the quality

Alot depends simply on where you do your shopping imo and whether or not your willing to sacrifice names. Price differences may not look like much but over a 100 item shop it quickly adds up. 

Personally I'll happily use own brands and wonky veg, it all tastes the same and can cut the cost of a shop in half

The article shows a kilo of Lurpack  for £9.35.at one of the cheaper supermarkets. How do you shop around when you are already shopping at a cut price outlet, have no car and a bunch of hungry kids at home?

Yeah well spar does an even better job , shitter produce for marks and Spencer prices, 

We do lidls/Aldi for main shop , I don't mind co-op as I don't like big supermarkets and it's next to my butcher 😂, I will use small individual shops like butchers , pet supplies etc where it's practical
