£2 a kilo with an impending best before date? It should be much cheaper than that for the amount you've got to buy and how short dated it is.

Did you read the link about dates on certain foods?


Yes. It's still expensive for the quantity you have to buy and the fact it IS shortdated, even though as dry food it should be fine for a while.

Do you know the difference between best before and use by? It will be 100% safe to eat, but it nay not be 100% as tasty as in date food.

In Costco you can buy 2 x750g boxes of Coco Pops for £3.69, barely more per kilo than this deal and you only have to buy 1.5Kg. I'd expect you to get this stuff for £1/Kg. Unless you've got a huge family, it will take many months to get through this, by that time it may well be going soft or losing flavour.

Problem is probably due to this company going through eBay to reach a wider audience. Couple quid on delivery, then PayPal and eBay fees, they'd be lucky to make a profit on this hence the £20.

Not for me, can be bought cheaper elsewhere.

Agree with the fees, but surely they should be just be trying to make as little a loss as possible and not profit on stock like this?
Yankee cowboys missed this deal

Irrespective of what use by and best before mean, they have no doubt bought it very cheaply and are selling it at a price not really taking into account the date or passing pnnany of the savings
I really love coco pops but even I would struggle to eat 10kg in 18days .
I know what the guidance is on BB dates but the last box of cereal I had that was a month or two out of date really didn’t taste that nice.
