Iceland many frozen lines discontinued with full BBE's now all HALF PRICE (be quick!)

Found 4th Sep 2014
Chocolate Curry 375g was £1.50 now 75p
Spice Beef Chilli Taco 350g was £1.50 now 75p
Spicy Chicken Taco 350g was £1.50 now 75p
Prawn and Chicken Jambalaya 350g was £1.50 now 75p
Ranchero Rice 350g was £1.50 now 75p
Sea Spray King Prawn Flavour Tales 200g was £1 now 50p

Was what I bought. ^^^

Called in at my local Iceland 10 minutes before closing time this evening and there was an entire freezer full of discontinued lines at the front of the shop. Everything was HALF PRICE.

It was packed to the top so looks like they'd only just put it out ready for the morning. Again these were discontinued items, not damaged, nor were they short dated either. In fact some of the dates I checked were March, April, May and November 2015.

I'm therefore assuming this will be nationwide subject to stock. Probably a directive from head office to clear the old stock out.

They also had boxes of Southern Fried Chicken, pizzas, Youngs Scampi, Gregg's pasties, 4 pack Cornettos, a couple of random 89p meals (45p), and big bags of frozen peas.

Got home and I just about had enough space in my freezer to shove it all in.

Just remember to check the taco shells before you buy them as one or two were slightly cracked but most were absolutely fine.

Hurry they'll probably be all gone by tomorrow lunch time at the latest. My dad is going back for some scampi for me in the morning.

They've been running two limited edition curries the last few months. Atomic Vindaloo and Chocolate Curry. I've tried it before it's mild and brown looking with the slightest hint of cocoa. The chicken is shredded. You could probably give it to someone and if you didn't tell them about the chocolate they more than likely wouldn't realise.

I'm more a fan of hot curries myself, such as the vindaloo - which comes with a whole red chilli in each one, but for the sake of 75p I'm happy to stock up on a few of the 'chocolate' variety.

I wish they'd discontinue the lines spoken by Peter bloody Andre in the new advert - it's driving me up the wall!

I tried their £1.50 chicken tikka massala a couple of weeks ago and it was awful, far worse than other supermarket versions. If this is any indication of the quality of the rest of their ready meals then I wouldn't even pay 75p for them.

Common sense really. A 75p ready meal can't be doing you any good. Cheap low quality meat and ingredients.

Great for the Dog though

I know it's a disease my friend, but you have got to stop shopping for reduced food to save enough to get your alcohol fix!There is only one way for you now brother and that's up!:|

Have voted hot simply for the effort.

Gotta say though that on two previous Iceland experiences there food is terrible, I purchased loads of stuff for a buffet about a year ago and everything was so poor.

Ready meals in general are poor but I do have the odd HEALTHY LIVING range at tesco, alot healthier than there normal Tesco Ready Meals but nothing like cooking it yourself from fresh.

Saturated Fat content ( daily recommend ):-

Tesco Healthy Living 19%
Tesco 93%

Massive difference and I recommend going for the Healthy Living range lol

If i was the store manager there i would put toilet roll on special offer next to those reduced curries X)

The Mexican "stuff" was 75p back in June. I bought a load and it's all liquid. Few bits of chicken in it. Awful. The rice is like stodge. Spoke to Iceland CS and they gave me a small voucher as compensation.

Shame that everything at Iceland is virtually 'tasteless'.

not even tempted to buy anything at half price. their own branded products don't tempt me at all. I think I'll stick to freshly prepared home made food. you can't beat it.

It's not. The Tikka Masala is by far the worst one - the others are actually very good (though the Korma has quite a bit of garlic). The best one is the Sri Lankan curry imo. And the Chocolate Curry was fantastic but the marketed it very very poorly - if they didn't call it a Chocolate Curry but instead called it a 'Gourmet Chicken Curry with a twist of something special' then just listed chocolate in the ingredients, I think it would've been hugely popular as that's what it is.

RE: Freshly prepared home made food; you're absolutely right in that you can't beat it BUT many people don't have time to cook 3 0.5-3hr meals every day. I enjoy cooking, but when I finish work all I want to do is relax, not slave over a pile of vegetables and a cooker for hours to make a meal. So I use ready meals and easy 'oven' food as a way to make a meal without having to slave over it - then I save the great meals for weekends or the odd weekday where I feel up to it.

It sure as hell beats ordering a takeaway every day.

The chocolate curry is lovely. It's a medium hot chicken curry really. You can't taste chocolate - it just makes it taste a bit smoother. It's the only one from the above list that might tempt me to pay a visit.
