Desperados (3 pack) £3.99 @ Home Bargains

56
Found 19th May 2012
This stuff is *Insert swear word here* awesome!! Normally sells for about £5.50 but HB have it for £3.99!!

It's the usual 3 pack and without checking I think they are 330ml (Which is the normal size of the bottles).

The bottles sell for around £3 in an average pub.

Yes I know this wont get much heat as people are happy with toilet water (Carling) and that Desperados is more than £1 per bottle so it's not a deal etc but this stuff is NEVER on offer in supermarkets and a box of 24 in cash & carry is around £30 (Inc VAT).

So this is cheap for this product, is it cheap lager, no ... but is it good lager, HELL YES! (There's tequila in it for those who don't know).

Happy drinking.

Your husband has good taste in alcohol!!

Great idea! Cheap beer mixed with cheap tequila must taste GREAT... enjoy.

Love this stuff and I don't really like beer. Great price for these.

I ain't tried the Amigo's, I was thinking it was a cheap version of this (As in quality not price). I might give it a go sometime as paying £5.50 for this is quite expensive but at £3.99 ... it's stock up time! :-D

Excellent beer, criminally hard to find in this country and normally expensive. No home bargains near me but a good price

O/T but worth noting that Aldi have a copy of this in on the 24th for £2.99 - aldi.co.uk/uk/…htm - which could be horrible, but is probably worth a go for people who like Desperados / Amigos

(but £3.99 is a good price for Desperados when you can find it, so voted hot!)

there's no tequila in it, its "tequila flavored" beer.....voted hot though

Bought these for hubby as he normally pays £3 for 2 at the corner shop so great value. I didnt post because i see people who havent tried it start commenting so to add no it doesnt tast like tequila it's actuakky quite sweet because of the lime.

Aromatique. :-D

It is strong though, 5.9%. Some people can't handle Stella and that's only 5%.

If only I had a HB close, this is a great deal!

It's unfortunate that it's at a store that doesn't have as many stores as a supermarket but they are opening more & more stores, i see new ones all the time when I'm travelling.

Ooh him indoors loves these as well as Amigos and as it's his birthday on Thursday, I might have to take a trip down to HBs and buy him a few for the occasion.

Desperados are £24 for 24 in Makro or Costco.....

nice beer, popular in trendy bars in mainland Europe, French, sweet to taste goes well with a lemon or lime.... would recommend... will have a look in local HB

This stuff is beautiful, had it once before in Germany. It was free too, not exactly but we went into an empty pub and drank the lot in about 3 hours then left.

Usually about a pound a bottle if buying a case so this isn't a great deal.

the old reverse psychology "this won't get any heat" worked, congrats!

its a good deal if you dont have £24 to spend

£4.99 for 4 bottles in Tesco. This is always £3.99 in home bargains. Tesco price is better. I'm not sure if it is on offer in Tesco or if £4.99 is the normally price, but it was this price in my local earlier today.

My local have these at 4 for £5 too. Nice for every now and then but wouldn't be in my top 5

or even better still, is the el tequito stuff lidl sells, £3.99 for 4 bottles and its 5.9%

Normally I don't really liked the taste of lager until after about the third bottle.(_;)

However, when I first tried this a while back, I instantly liked it. The only problem is that it's just a little too easy to drink. (_;)

As others have already said, Amigos is very similar to Desperados and is also very nice with a slice of lime stuck in the top. It's also around is 6% and was actually on 3-4-2 at Tesco recently making it £10 for 12 bottles. Niiice.

Hopefully be back on 3-4-2 soon.

You've been a member of this site for over five years and you've posted ONE deal. It's a good job others post deals for you isn't it because you clearly don't contribute anything!

Yeah it's that price in Tesco every time I buy it so this doesn't really look like a good deal to me either oO

...although maybe it's a good deal for if you don't have £4.99 to spend

Lovely stuff but it's usually about £25 for 24 bottles in Costco, so this isn't really hot unless you don't have a Costco membership.
