I've tried his sauces and they are truly disgusting I ended up putting it in the bin.
You would have to pay me to take them. Voted cold

Thank you so much for posting the only positive comment!:)

sounds a good deal to me!

Thank you so much for posting the only positive comment!:)



Can you post more details please? Like the exact name of the product is and a barcode please? Thanks for taking the time to post this, not everyone has the luxury of being well off and even if it's not the best it'll be better than I can make for a penny!

Sor example I picked up a load of coffee months ago for a penny a bag at tesco, not my favourite but I've paid much more for much worse coffee in the past.

Not tried it so can't comment BUT still think its good of OP to post it.

There must be people out there who like it and use it otherwise they wouldnt still be making it. Sure some of those people will be on here so this could be a great post for them

Alternatively, there will be others who may have just not tried it or been put off by the price & will now try it.

I never thought Jamie is so cheap?! X)

Hot.
Pasta sauce tastes good too.

Each to their own. I think apple products are overpriced, underspecced garbage in a shiny case, but I don't feel the need to say this every time a deal for them is posted. 1p for pasta sauce is great, heat added. None in my store though, its a discontinued line.

guardian.co.uk/lif…ent Alright if you like eating salt the equivalent of a salt mine!

Why won't anyone buy my sauces?

what is wrong with people in here, is it a case of Scrooge all around this year?! 1 pence for any brand of pasta sauce that saves you the hassle is an excellent deal!

And to all those who want to moan about ingredients, lets have a look shall we? -

Tomato Pulp (69%), Tomato Paste (15%), Black Olives (5%), Olive Oil, Capers, Basil, Salt, Garlic, Chilli Peppers.

ALL of which I would add to my own pasta sauce, so I really dont know why people love to moan - go and have a look at other leading brands and compare ingedients and youwill see Jamies is actually very good and doesnt have any rubbish in it at all.

Anways, I was going to post this before OP, but I cleared out the Tesco Extra at Maryhill, Glasgow, 36 jars at home! Good times!

Thanks OP, HOT DEAL!

Sad aint it, we all grew up eating more salt than this yet we're fine. I mean, they even reduced the salt in Pot Noodles FFS, who cares if they are unhealthy?!?!?!

Guess a lot of people just love to "moan" !!!:)

It probably means that someone has been sloppy at your Tesco. For accounting purposes, so as to not make it look like they have high wastage costs Tesco reduce things to 1p that they have discontinued and are about to throw out. When these items are reduced to 1p they are meant to be disposed of immediately, staff are meant to ensure customers do not buy these items. Sometimes they forget to remove them from the shelves so you get an item at a bargain of 1p but it won't be a national deal for two reasons..

1. Almost every other Tesco store will have disposed of them.

2. Depending on the size and location of the shop some may not have discontinued the line.

Tesco are ruthless with the space, a product must make a certain profit per cubic foot of shelf space, if it does not it is dropped thrown out and replaced with a different product.

even if you don't like it its a good deal

Staff must be"sloppy" at most stores then as my 2 local tesco had stock of it and most
of my friends who I have told have managed to get some at their local stores

I keep hearing this, yet the staff at my local seem hell bent on putting up big signs saying 1p. Some are there for weeks, like the Schwartz onion bits, and they even go to the hassle of putting yellow labels on them. Why bother when a simple removing the stock from the shelf would solve the problem?

The manager on the fresh section tells me that all 1p items are to get them out of the store, as they don't want the shelf taken up with items that must otherwise be disposed of. According to him its a way of not only ensuring their wastage figure is down, but also getting customers to remove the products rather than them paying to have them disposed of. Also if customers think there may be the odd 1p item around they may pay more attention to the shelves, thus buying more stuff.

1p items simply mean Tesco no longer plan to sell them, and removing those items from their shelves actually saves them money.

Bargain, even if the sauce is crap they are worth 1p for the large jars for me to do some pickling in, great way of storing excess eggs! Especially in the summer when the chooks are giving us 7 a day!

May have a dabble at various other pickles too at this rate.

You are rating the deal, not based on your taste buds.

Every TV, food product, item of furniture and everything else I don't like, whether a good deal or not to others, I'll be sure to vote cold.


Cheers.

Does this sauce contain actual Jamie Oliver pieces? If not then I'm afraid I'm going to have to vote cold and possibly expire for such a misleading picture.

How is the quality of the product not relevant to it's value?

e.g. Lung cancer at 5p is not a good deal.

Not guilty!! hukd mod posted the picture!

Fine deal if you can get it. Wish the moaners would either post some useful reasons as to why its a cold deal (like the high salt content post) or stop posting the "its cr*p" mindless comments which help no one.

Unless you can find the same product for cheaper, I can't see your point? Lung cancer at 5p may well be a good deal, if other places want £50k worth of fags to be smoked first. Your personal opinion of the product is not the opinion of others, and its a little up yourself to think yours is worth more to people than their own. This is a deals site, not a gastronomy one.

taste or quality of the sauce

Absolute madness! Most things for 1p is a good deal - its a branded product that is edible!
Edited by: "mat297" 22nd Nov 2010

Its a jar of pasta for christ sake ! 1p is a complete bargain. If it was a jar of lloyd grossman for 1p it would again be a great bargain. but then those who didn't like them would complain. as someone else said, your rating the deal , ie: price of the product , not the actual product its self get a grip ! I'm sure most of you only come on here for banter half the time !

Hilarious. The point of this entire website is for individuals to vote on deals based on their own opinion. The system itself will project the general consensus of the deal based on how people vote.
So yes, my opinion is the one that counts. If everyone were like you and vote solely on the difference in price, this would be a pretty horrid website to look for products. The comments sections are also particularly insightful to see whether the product is actually any good. I do not like to purchase bad products, irrelevant of the price.

It seems you are the one that is "a little up yourself", seeing as you are trying to impose on specific guidelines on how people should vote. You can vote how you want and so will everyone else.
