Found 23rd Jan 2014
It is nearly Chinese New Year and the last time I saw this featured on this forum was well before Xmas. Priced as single packets for £3.45 but there is a 3 for £10 offer now. Not as cheap as it once was per packet but at £3.33 (when bought as 3 sets for £10) for 500g of half duck (no bone) with pancakes and hoisin sauce it is still a bargain especially you use a £2.50 or £5 off voucher against a £25 and £50 shop, then it is £3 per packet. If you are single then just a quarter duck for £1.50!

The whole set is imported from China so it is authentic. You'd need to buy the cucumber and spring onions and chop them up if you want it like in the restaurant Just cut open the packet and pop the duck in the oven for 30-40mins. Sometimes I save the pancakes and hoisin sauce for another recipe! Just eat the aromatic duck with rice or noodles with stir-fried veg.

I don't know how much you shop at Farmfoods, their pricing is good deal as normal prices. Their pricing method rounds off to £5, £10 or to the nearest £ for multi-buys. But the aromatic duck £3.45 on its own is one such good deal all year round when you compare with what you pay for at Sainsbury, Tesco, Morrison and Waitrose which is nearly double. IMHO it is very good flavour and succulent. The Sainsbury deal is on special offer now : "Sainsbury's Half Aromatic Duck With Pancakes & Hoi Sin Sauce 550g Save £4.00 was £9.00 now £5.00" Sainsubry's special offer The standard £9 price at Sainsbury is possibly a better product but it claims "packaged in the UK" and there is nothing to state it is British duck. So sometimes rather than paying £9 at Sainsbury, just pull one of the freezer for £3.45 single pack , so it is a good deal nevertheless.

Is it any good?

I've had these before, they're not bad actually. I do prefer the pack from Sainsburys but only get that when it's on special offer

Tasty these. Been getting one a month for a while. Big shop again Saturday, unless Len's waltzed off with the lot ...

Excellent IMO better than Sainsburys, but not been in stock the last few times I've popped into my local Farmfoods I'll try again on Saturday.

hardly a deal if its a saving of 35p from regular price...

Well, post a better deal then so that the final deal price is less than £3.45! Or are you sucker to deals where the RRP is £19.99 and reduced to £3.45, like TK MAX? Just because pricing is honest and keen from Day 1, it does not make it no deal.

Quackers deal. I'll get me coat...

OP is right, it's not as cheap as it has been, but then *all* duck has risen in price. I often buy the 'canned' duck (its nowhere close to as bad as that sounds) when I'm in France, used to be 4.50Euro a tin of six pieces, now nearer 8.5Euro. This is a much better way of buying it, for me at least. The duck is pre-cooked, and only needs heating - we crisp it in a pan to get nice crispy skin. Since the duck is preserved in its own fat, you get to reserve that and use it for roast tatties - there's no roast tattie like a duck fat roast tattie. Even with the near doubling of price, I still think buying duck this way is a bargain.

I've had one and they're not bad.

great for the 31st Chinese new yr

I'd rather save the space in my freezer than buy two or three of everything, to save 35 pence... unless I was going to embark on a duck and hoisin extravaganza.

The original price is good, but that doesn't make buying 3 of them for a 'poultry' saving of 35p worth it.

I see what you mean. No problem , buy one then. Your single purchase is still a deal. Get practical and enjoy that lovely duck rather than being pedantic about another administrative process for 35p as I would then have to post a separate deal post to avoid your moan. You can type here a model example of perfect words if you like.

Thanks op, going later for these and the Heinz beans;)
