Supermarket deals are they the real thing?

When Supermarkets do a promotion on a product is it the same product you pay full price for. Take for example they were doing a promotion on Ragu. The Ragu seemed more runny than the stuff i had got before and when i got some from Costco it was definately thicker in texture. Is it just a coincidence in a change of recipe or do some manufacturers dum down their products in offers.

I should think its coincidence as the manafacturer wont choose who does promotions. it will be the stores choice..also they would have to alter the ingredients to reflect the greater or lesser quantitys used
maybe it was cold in costco... make the sauce appear thicker lol

my guess is your right temp defnitely would have a bearing in wether its thick or runny

yeah but the thing is if they advertise 25g or whatever it is then they have to give you 25g or they could be done under trade descriptions.

They have to be at the weight on the bag, Walkers would be committing suicide if they did that.

Multi-pack bags are smaller in weight than regular bags.

As far as I know - the supermarket approaches the supplier about an offer and the supplier is supposed to help out with the cost. These goods often have special packaging and therefore could be produced separately easily enough. The spec is usually downgraded for these offers to offset some of the cost - therefore I reckon it is entirely possible that certain goods are not as good as those that are full-priced. If weight is stated however, I'm sure this has to be adhered to - unless of course the weight measuer is left off the special promotion goods!!!
