How can it be standard if its on sale? Its always above £1 in the other main supermarkwts also, unless theres a deal on.
These are very nice but don't serve 2

I personally think 1 full pack is too much for 1 person. 2/3rds of a pack would have been perfect portion.

Are these Pakistani or Indian rice
These are £1 factory price marked as standard in corner shops. Not a good deal to be honest

But you are buying it in Waitrose, ask a Waitrose employee to carry it to your car and they will do, while you can get a free proper coffee on your way out. Try that in a corner shop

I don't think i'm silly enough to fall for that spin, if I wanted upmarket shopping experience I'd go to the food halls at Harrods or Whole Foods, not a mass customer supermarket where low earning middle classers think they socially sophisticated because they buy cheap prosecco and over pay for stuff.
Definitely can't serve 2, doesn't it even claim that on the packet, or it never used to.

Carrying stuff to your car if asked and a free coffee is spin? I thought it was fact. Silly me.

That's the **** all manufacturers do to claim that they have less sugar, salt .etc. per serving. A Frijj milkshake claims it's not 1 serving, it's clearly sold as one serving!

75g of uncooked rice becomes ~150g of cooked rice. That's a minimum portion for one person. Tilda are claiming that 125g is a portion, and that's including the weight of other things like the egg and peas!

I keep hearing that these are regular price... if b&m sell them for £1 (regular price), then i can gaurantee its only 3 flavours max

To keep you happy.

At Waitrose, Sainsburys and Asda it's £1 (or @ Asda 2 for £2, genius marketing!), at Morrisons it's £1.58 or 2 for £2.50, at Ocado it's £1.59 or 3 for £4, at Tescos it's £1.59.

Is it allowed to be hot now you know it's sold in Saisbugs and Asda at the same price?

1 pack serves 1 actually....
These are great for a simple lunch at work (if work has a microwave) I just stir in a tin of tuna to bulk it up a bit.
These were 75p in tescos a few weeks back picked up quite a few then chilli one is the best.
2 white mice?

It was back to the future day last week.
49p john west in home bargains, way better value...
Cold always £1 in corner shops.
These are 79p in B&M at the moment
You get less than a portion of rice from a takeaway, so def not 2 servings.
Its 80 p in BM bargains
thanks, have a money off voucher for Waitrose so will definitely get some of my fave - lime & coriander!
