454g Somefield branded Tinned Tomatoes 9p @ Co-op

Found 28th Sep 2010Made hot 28th Sep 2010
My first deal ever here!

I happened to pop into Somerfield in Glasgow city centre today on my way to work and I saw a Point of Sale display with Somefield branded tinned tomatoes on sale for 9p a tin and given the price of tomatoes these days it clearly would be considered a good deal to some.

I dont know if it is store specific or not or if it is just the Co-Op getting rid of all Somerfield branded stock.

Either way its a bargain to the many people who use tomatoes on a regular basis.

Im at work so I am unable to upload a picture I am afraid.

do you happen to know what percentage of tomatoes make up the cans contents?
sounds good, looking to stock up again as my Tesco buy-1-get-2-free-plus-cash-back-and-a-free-bottle-of-vodka cartons are just about to run out.

What store? anyone seen them?

Some field where?

Great price. Not seen tinned tomatoes this cheap for a couple of years.

I can't abide the slimeness that is a tinned tomato, shudder, but good find OP heat added.

Im just home so I will answer the questions.

They were just a normal tin of tomatoes to me so Im sorry I dont really know what the content between actual tomatoes and juice was.

The store was the Union St branch in Glasgow City Centre.

They were on a POS near the tills but they were not branded as a manager's special or anything they simply had a sign saying Somerfield tinned tomatoes 9p.



My local Somerfield sold off loads of wine, beers and spirits the other day as it was closing for 2 days to have new touch screen tills fitted and pricing and sel labels swapping to Co-op. They had bar codes that wouldn't be recognised after the change so they sold them of with up to 75% off. Some of the wine was already in a half price promotion, so bottles of white & red of various types were priced up at £1 a bottle in most cases - it was mad, people were filling boxes and buying dozens at a time!

I bought some of these when they were on offer previously. They are very thin and more like passata. Ok for flavouring I suppose but I wasn't keen when I used them in a bolognese sauce.

Thanks for sharing!
