"Pierde Almas creates their Pechuga every November by taking their Espadín mezcal to the next level with a third distillation. The most notable step is hanging a turkey breast in the still, a variation on the traditional chicken breast. Before the third distillation, the mezcal is infused with a variety of wild fruits, herbs and nuts, such as apples, pineapples, almonds, pecans, citrus blossoms and anise."

The jobless total is down though wages are still not rising
Our PM is more concerned with Brexit so it's no good criticizing
Our productivity is falling and our only rise is that of food banks
What does that tell you about this Government filled with utter planks

They very quickly place the blame on you for your rather poor lot
While out there fiddling their expenses and working other jobs while caring not a jot
Personal and National debt is rising to levels never ever seen before
No amount of austerity will ever correct the rot so is it time to show them the door

Things must be really bad if we have to buy out of date food for a pound
Or working families having to rely on Charity when they nothing else to eat can be found
What a sad country this has become so the super rich can make even more
So many of our young men sacrificed... but just what was it for

I took a punt on this with my last order as previously they've been great but this one was disappointing.

The only things in date were a packet of walkers crisps and a pot noodle, so I've put them to one side to add to the harvest festival foodbank donations my village is organising.

I'd been planning on giving most of the stuff to the food bank so it's a shame about the dates.

Overall actually it's good value but this time it's stuff I really didn't want to eat (smash, tinned strawberries & lychee drink?!) and I couldn't donate the bits. If you're more accommodating to random foods then for a quid it's worth it.


I got:
- pot noodle (in date)
- small packet walkers crisps (in date)
- box of 4/5 alpen bars (date early October so fine but unfortunately not suitable for donating to the foodbank)
- tin of cape drink in flavour lychee and peach with roiboos (out of date, may?! Sounds rank)
- bottle of water (out of date, but will use)
- bag of chocolates (out of date, September, I'm sure they're fine)
- smash, mashed potato (out of date, September, sounds rank I don't even want to try it).
- tin of strawberries (out of date, may?! Sounds rank, don't want to eat them).
- bar of chocolate (early October date, bit crushed but fine).

They should be donating this to food banks not making money.



Except that they're a business, which don't tend to last long if they give all their stock to charity and don't make money...

Although, somewhat ironic, as we didn't pay a penny in tuition fees and got some sort of grant unless our parents earned well over the national average. Plus we could still claim housing benefit and unemployment benefit in the holidays too. Beer was relatively cheaper and there were fewer graduates competing for jobs. We had it cushy!

they did a £2.99 per order all of march and looks like they are doing again for April as my email had the advert on it. I have used both Approved Food and Clearance XL for a while now. Poubdstretcher no longer deliver and nor do poundland. Asda has an absolutely diabolical delivery service and there are a lot of good bargains. if you have had stale crisps, you have been unlucky. they don't just sell food and not that much is actually out of date. I think they are great websites to reduce food waste, for those on budgets and to buy in bulk for charities to feed the homeless.

My only issue is it's cherry flavour. Yuck.

When I have drunk coke close to it's sell by date I found it had turned into fizzy (although somewhat flat) water.

Hahaha nothing wrong with approved foods I work in retail for 25 years in major chain supermarkets and some of items are really cheap and in date code . Use MARSHIP3 for half price delivery maximum spent of £17.50

£2.10 for 12 in our Pound Stretcher store, choice of sugar free or normal too. Ordered a few things from that site that were supposed to be bargains but it turned out that overall they cost the same as the likes of Asda and the quality was dire. £1 for 6 bags of stale crisps, rank. Never again.

You can extend the delivery time in the Deal Post (if you wish) - just had an email saying the code has been extended till midnight tonight. (Actually, I left a little comment at the bottom instead).

Approved Food are still pretty good - I only order when there's free delivery. Had one or two things that have been off (such as Soreen Malt Loaf minis) but they always refund promptly if there's problems. Most stuff is still decent.

Especially useful for stocking up on heavy things (like dishwasher tablets/laundry liquid, powder) etc. Their case deals are a great bargain as well.

I must have missed out on the glory days of Approved Food when it was really dirt cheap! I often see people on MSE mentioning that the prices have skyrocketed.

This company is a joke, Large p+p costs with very cheap rubbish food with hardly any nutritional value at all. Also after making a couple of orders suddenly started getting lots of scam calls from Sheffield where they are based from our foreigner friends who are probably working there. I deleted my account so be warned.

Shocked to see just how out of date some products are, 2015. Most are not even that cheap. Really just not worth the risk of ruining a meal.

Botulinum killed plenty, canned food has only been around since I think the late 1700s maybe early 1800s, trust me in the early days it did indeed kill many, maybe not instantly but slowly over time from the metals of the cans getting into the food, lead poisoning and later aluminium poisoning.
