They did this offer awhile back and it made such a tasty roast I thought I'd let people know it was back on. I can't find anything with the search, and never posted a deal before so apologies if it's wrong.
Price is per Kg.

Whot a quacking pwice !!

Are there lots of Tesco salesmen on these forums ? Are they using HOTUKDEALS as free advertising boards as there are lots of Tesco products here lately? How comes there are not the same quantities of 1/2 price, special offers from Somerfields, Sainsburys , Waitrose, Morrisons, ASDA, Budgens and the Patel corner stores as they have weekly loss leader deals too. E.g. My nearest is Sainsburys and they have Gressingham ducks from to time at 50% off too , like 2 weeks ago when they had half priced ducks and half priced Wild Alaskan Salmon but they never got a mention by the same people who are enthusiatics about Tesco. Now supermarket daily and weekly special offers had been around since the sixties, I wondered what would happen if HOTUKDEALS list every special offer?! Will it be a huge forum with supermarket specials on every page!

It's a duck, there isn't! :-(

Gressinghams are normally a fair bit better for meat content than Aylesburys too!

Is this the Chinese Duck or just frozen duck - sorry if seems silly question, just wanted to know which section to look in?

We agree on something then, in a roundabout sort of way!... I have NO idea why Tesco are the "No 1" retailer either, and usually take less notice of the Tesco offers, as someone else's prices usually beat them. I live in sight from my bedroom window of the biggest Tesco of them all, and rarely venture there, and when I do, it is usually for non-food items, as I shop far more in Sainsbury's Netto, Lidl and Aldi, as well as Somerfield, for differing reasons.

Unlike you though, I do however like to have some idea of what is a good buy at supermarkets, I spend a LOT of my income in supermarkets, on one lot of stuff or another; and while we all like Cars, TVs, cameras and gadgets, they are not nearly so big a part of my yearly spend as groceries and household gear! OK, 2p off when you buy 3 packets of soap powder are not "hotdeals" but some decent offers have real impact on what I spend, so:

Keep the decent supermarket offers coming please!

I hope this is free range duck :whistling:

:giggle:

I love eating ducks, especially roast duck, but this I found just now has put me off a bit independent.co.uk/env…tml ..............battery ducks! I guess this is what happens to get a price point of £3.14 a kilo. This is about £1.40 a lb....does this means that it must exit a farm at less than about 50p a £ as the animal has to go to the abbatoir, distribution, and then supermarket..how can a duck live and put on 1 pound of meat for so little money!

Like I always say the "free range" adjective is the supermarket businessmen. The car that that they drive is a "Range Rover". The duck itself is factory, machanised product. I heard recently on LBC radio about a famous Aussie whose name I forgot, she said that when she came to England the biggest cultural shock was that she found in Britain pervasive use euphemisms.
So the euphemisms for supermarkets are :-

1. Factory conditioned battery eggs are called "barn" eggs.
2. Traditionally made means machine made in giant vats with of E numbers and chemical additives
3. Selected cut in in cooked meat means mechanically recovered reformed meat - meat that has been in a giant rotating tumbler
4. Home made ..how can a factory made product ever be home made
5. Hand picked .. means handy work that is cheaper than a machine's to deploy or a machine cannot be deployed
6. Pure and natural wines fully of sunshine and goodness from the soil. ........nope.. for the supermarket plonks these wines can contain up to 30 chemicals which they don't have to label.

...so on and so on....

Maybe Tesco have now changed the adverts they had in my local tesco which clearly stated £3.14 per duck, NOT £3.14 per kilo. only when i looked at the price label and saw it was actually per kilo did i put it back.

i wasnt sure if the r&r they used to do was still on but was tempted to get all 10 and then pay the full price and demand my money back and free ducks but then thought i would have no where to put them anyway.

Oh dear oh dear oh Duck....
A quacking deal?
Well, Battered, Crispy, Fried, Free, roaming, Mallard, or not.... I can feel a whole debate coming on here.... You know like the ones that the techno heads alwaz have!
LOL!!!
:-)

Is this the chinese one?

don't be silly its a tesco duck:thinking:

Kind of odd, as Australian & NZ regulations are so similar in extent to the UK you would hardly know the difference, although they don't have nearly so much control of nutritional labelling, so we seem to be ahead there.

It would be funny if it were true, but it isn't!

Food humour from the land of the "Pie floater" just doesn't seem to translate very well - for a start, most of the the things in the list are just not legitimate claims, therefore would not be permitted at all, you are pretty much unlikely to see them on the shelves, so it makes me wonder why she made it up - probably the only one that has any basis in truth is item 6, and applies to everything from cheap plonk to Chateau Lafite Grand Cru as well as Australian wine, which is no different, so I wouldn't shout about it if I was her!

That leaves item 5 - So....let me see - Hand picked - means it IS hand picked.
Hmm.
[pauses for tumbleweeds to blow through]

I suppose I it must be funny from the Australian point of view to see well fed healthy Poles & Latvians picking fruit instead of half starved Aborigines, Polynesians or Chinese where they don't pay them a minimum wage like here! After all the only reason they let anyone with a darker skin into Australia is to work them to death :-(

I would advise her not to give up a day job if she "tells 'em like that," although I suppose it was funnier at the time. Just sounds reminiscent of a standard Daily Mail article to me, only this time it is excusable as the usual Aussie having a go at "Whingeing Poms"
I imagine the shared houses of Earls Court must have lit up as she rolled out this rib-splitting satirical stuff.

thanks! owe my neighbour a meal for the help he gave, will roast a duck for them!
