Seems a good price, but that picture just looks like a big pile of mess

Original Poster

Sorry, just found any old picture from google. I would have done a picture of the ones I bought, but they are in my belly!

hahaha yummy!!!!voted hot!!

Great Find, Heat Added

Explains the huge queue at my local branch today. Good deal.

got the munchies now but abit over the dd limit to go ! ;-)

cheaper than putting the oven on at home and less hastle!

Are they free range? If not i don't want them.




haha joke obviously.

what a lovely life those chickens must have had in order for their wings to be worth less than 5p each

Good point. It's not just the welfare of the animals but your welfare when eating their wings. Food this cheap is NOT a bargain. You are what you eat.

Sainsburys charge a thigh and a leg for these, 5p is a bargain compared to (In)sainers...

But then again MintyMat you are indeed what you eat. To be honest though I wouldnt want to turn into any kind of chicken, free range or not...

Hot if you eat this sort of chicken
Cold if you only eat free range.

Cold for me

As a student, I try to be ethical with my chicken (it being the cheapest and therefore most student friendly meat) and would you believe the stick I get for it from my flatmates!
I dont do it for any kind of moral reasons - Its just worth the extra for the extra taste!

Still when they are hot&spice I doubt the chicken is there for taste!

Here we go!

:?

Would it make things better if the rest of the chicken was sold for £10?

Why do people continue to food preach on this website rather than express an opinion on the price in comparison with comparable deals? If free range chicken wings are available at the same price or less then great, post the deal. If not why vote cold or even compare to free range?

For example, I wouldn't be seen dead inside MOld Trafford unless the match was against my club, but if a deal was posted at £5 per ticket I would see it as a hot deal. Not for myself, as I stated, but for those who wanted to go, still a hot deal.

Its like telling someone considering a budget make TV deal at £200 they should really buy a premium make TV at £600!

In short, should we not stick to whether the deal is good when comparing to goods of a similar standard?:thumbsup:

:w00t:
Interesting. How many times before you stopped buying more? Until you were really certain that your 'two-bob-bits' were caused by this chicken?

Maybe this great deal is to celebrate a new recipe that doesn't induce the 'two-bob-bits'. Perhaps you should give them another try.

I am a chicken and I can confirm I am very unhappy about my fellow chicken's wings being sold for 5p each.

hot deal enough said.

You wont have to worry for much longer....... anyone for a leg?? :-D

Hmm. Not bad. Nearly as good as a Junior Spesh for £1 and 50p. Mayonnaise appears to be 20p more there however.

But that is EXACTLY what happens on this site. Post a deal about a budget computer and all the gaming enthusiasts say it's rubbish because it won't play the latest shoot 'em up game. Post a deal about a cheap telly and all the TV enthusiasts with 50" plasma's in their tiny living rooms tell you it's useless because it won't do high definition.

This deal is for cheap food - that's for sure. And in comparison with other cheap food it might be a bargain. But what the people voting cold are saying is that they don't think cheap food is a good idea at all, and the cheaper it is the more suspicious we should be about the quality, and morality, of the food production process.

Voted cold. Chewing on chicken wings that have never flapped because they've been kept in overcrowded growing sheds is not my idea of fun.

Voted hot purely & simply because I can't stand the moral-free-range-food-<....> posting their holier-than-thou opinions on every single cheap food deal.

Yeah it is very very tiresome the preaching on the site when a food deal is posted. Do the preacher really believe people are making completey uninformed decisions in this day and age when topics such as there are thown down your neck day in day out.

As i have said previously i bet alot of the peachers on here go out to eat and i bet they dont go up to the restaurant and check all thier products before they order everytime? (Wait for it, oh yes i do i always check every last pea and string bean just to check they were given enough sunlight and werent in shadow for more than an hour a day) .

Chill out and if you wouldnt buy the chicken thats fine and if you dont want to vote thats fine, just stop with the preaching people are aware of the issues.

Why has this been expired? The offer was still available in Asda Telford when I was in there around 30 mins ago. :?

Heaven forbid that some people might want to change the world for the better, eh? It must be such an inconvenience for you to have other people worrying about stupid, irrelevant things like ethics.

And to state that people know about the issues is simply deluded. Plenty of people have no idea about the consequences of their food purchasing habits. I could equally say that everybody knows about the dangers of saturated fats or MSGs, but coronary heart disease statistics tell a different story. The same is true of purchasing habits - many people simply don't know.

The fact that you don't care about more ethical food shopping does not for one second mean that other people will feel the same way once they learn about it... thankfully.

Your not doing the "I'll eat anything if it's cheap" argument any favours with comments like that.

I'm not that bothered about peas and string beans and I don't think many people would be. I'd prefer them not to be GM or covered in insecticide, but as long as they are tasty that's fine for me.

The issue here is animal welfare and that's not weird, it's common sense.

Oh, and why when somebody has an informed view on food it's "preaching" but when they tell you to avoid a certain kind of telly, pc, video game or whatever because the quality is not very good and it would be worthwhile spending a bit more to get something better, then that's ok because that's helpful advice?

Seriously... **** chickens...

I don't even know where to begin with a post so devoid of reason as this.

People are not bothered about chickens because of the media; they're bothered about chickens because contemporary farming practices are cruel, unnecessary and ultimately lead to poorer-quality meat which is more likely to cause health problems for the consumer. You try an organically-reared, corn-fed chicken and then tell me that your Asda Value chicken scraps taste anywhere near as good. I guarantee that they don't. The better quality the meat, the better the taste.

If you think people are concerned about animal welfare purely solely because of the media, then I'd suggest you don't have a particularly good understanding of the issues involved.

There's no logic in that post whatsoever. I suggest the reason you are not bothered by animal welfare is either:

(a) you don't know anything about it, i.e. lack of education
or
(b) you don't want to have to think about it, i.e. laziness

It's ok to be ignorant. It's ok to be lazy. It's your life and if that's how you live it then fine, good luck to you. But it's not the media that has made the rest of us "bothered about chickens". People that have taken the time to learn about where their food comes from don't like some intensive farming practices. Nobody tells them that, they work it out for themselves.

Now let me see....bird raised in shed with 40,000 others and no space to move, artificial daylight for 23 hours a day, high fat diet gets it to 2kgs in around 40days while it stands, or more likely collapses, in its own waste then is slaughtered, prepared and off to the Asda hot wings counter. It's got nothing to do with the media. That's just not the kind of thing I'd want to eat.

Putting the intensity of this process in context the chickens whose wings you might be eating on Christmas Day haven't even hatched yet!

If you "prefer them not to be battery farmed" then it might help if you didn't by super cheap battery farmed chickens. With less demand for intensively reared chickens the price of higher welfare standard food will fall as that becomes the norm for most people.

YAWN, I have my beliefs & don't believe u need to shove them down everyone else's throats. So why bother coming into a thread about this deal and bang on. I personally wouldn't eat this rubbish.

Cos unless you have been there... or know, for example somebody that produces chickens... pretty sure you got it through the media, whether it be the TV, a newspaper or the internet.
Lack of education? Nope, I'm a University graduate, Laziness? A little, but that has nothing to do with the matter at hand.
I do not doubt that the meat will be of an inferior quality, I do not doubt that the chickens that have been used probably suffered. I just find it incredibly funny that people would want to come into this thread and argue about animal cruelty etc. blah blah blah. What the hell did you expect when you saw a dozen chicken wings for 50p?

I'm guessing both of you are vegetarians...? If not... hush up.

I keep my own chickens. I live in a rural part of Suffolk and have visited both intensive farms (Bernard Matthews in Halesworth) and numerous barn and free range farms. That's where I get my information from. What about you?


hukd don;3446292

Lack of education? Nope, I'm a University graduate.



Ignorance and a 21st Century university degree are, I can assure you, not mutually exclusive! :-D

WRONG! I am a meat eater. That's why I am interested in this thread and genuinely concerned about the state of the meat production in the UK.

Why has this deal been expired?

Unexpired as still available

What does that have to do with it? Yet another pointless and stupid argument. I'm guessing that logic didn't play any significant part in your university education.

But for the sake of argument, perhaps you could enlighten us as to why omnivores shouldn't criticise one another's eating habits?
