The answer is
1.some kind of meat
2.Some people cannot afford anything else,have some empathy.
I'd eat em and wouldn't mock anyone for eating them too.
For some people it's all they can afford
Less of the snobbery
I had to use the Foodbank a few times a couple of years ago - and was extremely grateful for what i was given by generous people-it was food and kept me from going hungry - i didnt really care what it was so for a lot of people in those situations these things do make a difference.

Depending on what the meat is (if any) this is a great price. I'd walk out with a few trays full. Can be mashed up and used with mince meat to bulk out a shepherds pie, lasagna quick spaghetti and meatballs for the kids stuff like that.

Cheap meat that should last a few years in the cupboard.

yes course they are !!!
Probably more meat on a butcher's pencil! I remember I tried a Morrisons cheap-cheap spaghetti bolognese tin and it felt like it had soya or some sort of papery substance in it. Ended up throwing it in the bin.

Empathy doesn't come into it. I'd rather feed my kids beans on toast than this crap!

I thought you asked why would anyone eat it, the answer is it`s all they can afford.

What beans can you buy for 11p?

Empathy always comes into it when you question peoples ability to afford food.

People have their priorities completely wrong. These are the same people that would rather spend £500 on a tv than 50p on a loaf of bread.

Yes I am a nice person... too nice for my own good.

You're not hearing what I'm saying though.

Even if this item was free I still wouldn't eat it. I'd make better food choices even on a very tight budget.
Edited by: "DigitalFootprint" 31st Jul 2019
Whaaa all this over meatballs? Seriously? What's wrong with people? Yeh people eat this stuff cause some have hard times sometimes that's why supermarkets sell it..I eat cheaply most of the time but also cautious what I am eating ..why don't people understand that other people struggle? And no I dont struggle as I work full time etc but I still try to save where I can
joncfc31/07/2019 20:27

Since no one on here has actually eaten any of it.. [Video]


The weird thing about these, according to the video, is that they're made from 44% chicken (though he says they use 75% of the chicken), 16% tomato purée and other ingredients. But they don't sound that bad.

Calm down, they are only meatballs.


Me?
Totally calm.
Just baffles me when people don`t understand that not everyone can afford to buy "quality" products.
These meatballs could be a once a week treat for those people.

Yep keep em in there place!

Tinned meatballs and instant mash. Tonight, we dine as Kings. I used to love tinned meatballs when I was a nipper. They probably look a bit smaller today.
I avoid.most smartprice items except their pasta/Bolognese sauce range.

Fry some onion, garlic, some spices, add in the sauce and then finish with dried herbs and Worcester sauce.

Just to enhance it a bit.

I'm sure same same could be done to this.

Cheap ingredients can be turned into excellent meals!

Haha, I used to love tinned Heinz spaghetti with mince. Used to season that up bubble it in the pan and mop the sauce and pot up with bread. Have not had that for years.

I remember that stuff. It was sort of spag bol. I think they might still do it. Latch key kids 'cooking' their own dinner in the 70's.

One tin would probably be a meal for a couple of primary school children.
I'd like to here what you would give them for the same price ?

How depressing predictable these pathetic comments are. To answer the question they are 11p as they are reduced to clear. Normally they are priced slightly cheaper than branded products, and contain pretty much the same things.
These would make a good combination with the Asda 8p spaghetti!
If you can, please consider donating to the food bank, usually there is a trolley near the check-out for donations. Even if the meat isn't nice to eat, at the very least it would be used as a sauce.
