Heat! No edible food should go to waste in my opinion. It's great it doesn't just get thrown away. If you don't want to order after the best before date, then don't. But this is a great deal, not least because this is food which could have gone to waste, and with starving people all over the world, that is just disgusting.

I never see the appeal of AF, I thought most towns had a shop that sold stuff close/past the BBD and I would imagine they are cheaper than these.

We have a Premier local to us who sell a limited (usually crisps, chocolate and biscuits) range of past BBD stuff and all are cheaper than I saw on there when I had a look.

10 packs of square crisps £1
6 Bounty £1 (can mix and match with other bars)
3 tear and share walkers £1
12 packs of walkers crisps £1

are some examples.

Alot of the other stuff is the same price or cheaper in B&M etc.

Like gr1340 said.

A few years ago I went to a on a tour in "chocolate making" factory in South Wales. They told the group I was with that, if stored properly, chocolate will last indefinitely (assuming you don't eat it haha), and the only reason that a "Best before" date is stated is because of the laws relating to food safety. This applies to endless food types... gone the days of "common sense" - sighs.....

The give away for not having been stored properly is when you see white discoloured patches on it. Even then, I was also told it's perfectly ok to eat, but may not taste as good.

Tiptop spot!

Worth ordering £35 of these maybe!

33250005-rXBTL.jpg
Right up until this deal was posted and I checked 3 times, I would not
believe there was something called "NomNoms" for sale!!!!
for £35 worth of items, i'd end up filling 3 boxes (75kg) which is £13.00 for delivery so a total of £45 and i don't have enough room to store it.

its worth noting that the weight of an item can outweigh the price, you end up filling a box in no time and you just keep adding stuff you don't want or need.

Some things are not as cheap as you expect but I have had a few bargains. …Some things are not as cheap as you expect but I have had a few bargains. Things like fizzy drinks and chocolate are fine for weeks or months past the bbd. I have had crisps that are 2 or 3 months past and they have been fine too. There was a TV documentary about them and they try a sample of everything they sell so it should be mostly fine.


while most items i have bought over the years have been fine to consume well after their BBE date, some flavoured water i ordered was awful so i just ended up binning it, it wasn't just one bottle but a full case

As in not cloudy, or cork has disintegrated, or seal in some way breached.The stuff they sell is reduced for a reason so I see this as a gamble until I get my pristine bottle delivered!!


I don't think they could get away with selling anything like that though. They can't sell stuff that's likely contaminated. They're not selling opened Mars bars, so why would they be selling opened whiskey?
Mine arrived today. Great find, doubt I'll find a better whisk(e)y deal this year!

I have read a fair bit about Approved Food from MSE, where I first heard of them. Apparently they were a LOT cheaper at one point, but I only started shopping from there in the last few years.

Generally I've always found them really good - well-packed items, good customer service (you do get the odd item that is "off" - doesn't happen often, but I have had a couple of refunds).
Used to use this place u til they started limiting the amount you can buy to 1-3 items of something per customer,wasn’t worth bothering with them

I think you can find cheaper as postage is high, but I highly recommend this vape, Ive got two and they are great.

Dont understand how anybody could be against vaping, its a way better alternative to smoking fags and way easy to give up/wean yourself off than smoking cigarettes too; no brainer.

Get dealGet deal
Read their info pages, it is very clear, also goes with governmental or food standards agency guidelines.....

BB = BEST before date
Product would be at its best before this date, still safe to eat for a long time after..... probably not much different from when it was 'IN date'.

Use by - Use it or bin it, normally on fresh products like meat / fish etc. where the product is expected to decay / rot / go off soon after, do not eat after the Use By date. (although we all know some products will still be ok for a day or two after, smell it, look at it and work it out. Milk for example....... does it smell off? no, then use it. Is it stinking and lumpy? yes, then bin it)

no its usually short shelf life, but what if it was out of date ? crisps / drinks / chocolate months out of date wont kill ya.

this site usually specialises in short life/expired products, hence the price.

The most notable step is hanging a turkey breast in the still, a variation on the traditional chicken breast.

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!

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.

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.
