Going to sainsbury's soon ( well when it stops raining and I get off HUKD!! )
what weight are these? Did you notice any other bargains?
Hot by the way have my +8 degrees
#3
They are 270g and there are roughly 10-11 goujons in the pack

They had a load of deals on beers, but didn't notice anything else on the food side, was only a quick shop :)

Could you confirm whether these are 100% chicken breast meat?!
Thanks

Take a closer look on the individual packs. Short date ones have the £2.29 price on them however the newer packs are exactly the same and priced at £1.15!!! so you are only saving 30p

Another example of over inflated prices for an offer, making you think you are getting a bargain.

I actually felt like complaining in the store about this offer.

Sainsbury's websites says they are 68% Chicken pattie and 32% breadcrumb. The chicken pattie is made from 80% chicken meat and the rest is water, pea starch etceteras. If these were chicken breast they would advertise the fact strongly.

Having written the above I am no food warrior:x, I was merely answering the question posed! :thumbsup: They are probably quite nice!

These are chopped and shaped chicken breast.
Had them before,they are awful.Just like compressed cardboard.
The best ones are the chicken 'mini fillet' ones.They are the small fillet from underneath the breast.100% pure chicken breast.

Unfortunately Sainsburys moved away from the accepted use of the word "Goujon" to mean whole strips of chicken (or fish). They now often use "chopped and shaped" chicken instead for their "Goujons" which in turn means they have to use something to bind the chopped chicken back together. You could also consider why it's chopped and shaped rather than strips of chicken.

A small distinction maybe, but to my mind it makes this product little more than elongated chicken nuggets (without going into the whole free range vs battery chicken debate)

Not saying it's not a good deal at that price, but be aware what you're buying.

The breaded mini chicken breasts are half price and much nicer. £1.64 for about 7

I've just got back from Sainsburys and there are loads of offers on at the moment - the most I've ever seen there.

Couldnt agree more. Just a word of advice to avoid these if possible. I had some in my freezer from a previous similar deal and ended up throwing them because of the terrible taste of the fresh ones. Dry/Cardboard like unforunately.

Mystery meat.

Asda has the Bernard Matthews goujons at a pound a pack. Mostly turkey goujons I think, but probably the same mechanically recovered meat as these. Noticed that they were reducing the packs still further today as none was selling.

I have lost count of the numer of times that I have seen "offers" like these in shops (not just in supermarkets). Yes, it makes me angry to think that these shops think us customers are that stupid to fall for one of the oldest tricks in the book - raise the price and then say "sale" or "offer"! Sadly, some of us are that stupid and just see the "50% off" or "BOGOF" and all else goes blank. Just think whether the item is something you really want and then determine if the price is reasonable for what you are getting.
Going back to this specific "offer", I would not pay £1 (£1 per pack) for reformed chicken (the worst parts of the chicken) which is totally tasteless and of no nutritional value. If you want to eat chicken, get it fresh from the butchers. You can get a nice piece of chicken breast for £1 and you know exactly what you are getting (in most cases!). It will be without added water (to increase the weight and size of the chicken) and should be without any added preservatives or other artificial substances.
Of course, this is my personal opinion and I'm sure there are enough out there that disagree or else these chicken goujons would not be selling, KFC would not be doing well, etc.....
Final point - this is indeed a "deal" if the "normal price" is £2.29 so maybe the "heat" that this deal is getting is justified - just in terms of the money saved compared to normal INFLATED selling price??

Doesnt KFC use 60% chicken

More like 6%. 94% is oil and fat.

not free range so rated inedible!

Broiler chickens have a terrible existance! And I speak from experiance, I have my own, happy hens, including some recsued battery hens.
Now if you saw what they were like when I first got them, you too would never eat battery eggs again!
