I used to buy the Iceland ready meals in the late 90's when I was in college. Back then you'd get a 360g frozen curry for a pound.

Roll on another fifteen years and not only are the portion sizes a more generous 500g, but today I went in and they've slashed the price across the entire range to a more than reasonable 89p.

They mightn't be anything special but they're still tasty and fill a hole. There's a decent range of curries,pizzas, lasagnes, 'toad in the hole' etc available. Ideal for anyone on a budget wanting to get their freezer stocked up.

I walked past my local Iceland earlier. Kerry Katona was coming out with a wheelbarrow full of these for the kids.

I had one of these last night. It was tasty but I've still got a bit between my teeth.

Better off microwaving the cardboard box that it comes in with some water and curry powder. It'll certainly taste better and contain less cr*p. I know these meals are super cheap but .... Hot though for price. A deal is a deal.

That is just wrong on so many levels...

Reason they are 89p? Because they are cr*p.

you have to laugh at the iceland haters you always find on any of there deals.

the quality is the same as any of the other supermarkets when it comes to ready meals,hell even slightly better taking into account the price range these are in.

but just because its from iceland it apparently the devil incarnate.

so many idiots in the world......

Cheap rubbish......but still cheap. Ideal for anybody on a tight budget, or in financial difficulty.

Certainly a bargain, heat for the price.

and what do you find inherently bad about a meal that is frozen in a box?

freezing means they need not use carcinogenic preservatives and such, and people have been freezing meals for decades for consuming later.

Cold. Freezing cold. The meals that is.

THATS ALL FOLKS.

These aren't at all bad for a quick meal and have a lot less junk in them than some ready meals. I like to buy nice food and I will actually cook occasionally but these have their place, especially at this price.

They're just attention seekers I wouldn't give them the time of day. "Oooh look at me I'm much too pompous to eat a meal costing less than a pound!"

Well not likely as that's not one of the 89p ones. I love how this one is "mild". So it's not a hot chocolate then.

These are great for people who do shift work and don't have the time to cook a meal. If feeding a whole family tho, it is cheaper to buy ingredients and prepare yourself. Heat added for convenience

For a family it might work out cheaper - but even that's only through dividing numbers. But of course some of us live on their own. And it's an absolute myth that it's always cheaper to make this kind of stuff yourself as a solo occupant.

i think the price cut is due to changing packaging (not that it matters at all)

some of they own brand pizza's ware cut to this price for the first half of the year

as for any other comments frozen ready meals are just that so some as any other supermarket (just you get more *500 g* for less *89p*) in some cases iceland even have a higher meat / chicken / horse content than the big 4

I don't know why so many people are hating on them. This "ready meal" is aimed at a certain target market and it seems to work! Of course, you could buy your own chicken, curry sauce and rice for cheap enough to make proper curry for the entire family but not everybody has enough time to do that when they get home from work and the kids are already whining that they're hungry!

I have a lot of respect for Iceland as a retailer and don't actually 'hate' these cheap ready meals. I disapprove of them because Britain is now Europe's biggest consumer of the "prepared meal" and it is no coincidence that we are also right up there in all the fat/unhealthy league tables. Cooking our own meals does not need to be either expensive or take a lot of time but it is healthier and tastes so much better. I'm no Jamie Oliver fan but the guy does make some valid arguments on this subject. Feeding this garbage to children is so bad at every level and probably isn't all that filling.

Taksim_Red

they're still tasty



cold for lying.

Hot. These are much better than other supermarkets microwave meals.
The portion size is much bigger and better quality, it doesn't all stick to the tub like Tescos do. I recommend the spaghetti and meatballs, really nice for a quick on-the-go meal.

Nah, those £10 chunks of meat are nice for those on a budget. These are unhealthy, taste horrible and nutritionally unsatisfying.
Edited by: "Alethia" 9th Jul 2014

Ready meals in general are just cheap and bad (Not all I guess) I just think Iceland don't try to make as much of a profit on it.

Do they do fresh food in Iceland? This boxed food can't be very healthy surely.

was in the local iceland earlier. got a lot of the £1 items reduced to 89p from pizza ready meals, icecream lolly's and loads of other items. i do like the hot vindaloo curry they sell.:D
