Clearly you were eating them wrong.....(cheeky)
Bargain. These are lovely.
Love these , I have just eaten a jar today 😄 but never seen them this cheap! I know my Tesco’s won’t have any but well done you for a fab find x
No wonder Mrs Elswood is smiling
Voted 🔥 doubt if they’ll have them at my store though, but will definitely have a gander.

She should be crying at that price Tesco is selling 😜
Never heard of these before, are they basically gherkins? 🥒
25% of normal selling price is Tesco clearance

Yeah

A pickled cucumber (commonly known as a pickle in the United States and Canada and a gherkin in Britain, Ireland, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand) is a cucumber that has been pickled in a brine, vinegar, or other solution and left to ferment for a period of time, by either immersing the cucumbers in an acidic solution or through souring by lacto-fermentation.

I am still on my quest for Gherkins like the ones in Mcds Cheeseburgers apparently they are Gherkins with Dill but i have tried every bottle from every manufacturer but nothing as good as a Mcds Gherkin but the WAITROSE ones come close:-

Waitrose Gherkins Pickled in Sweet & Sour Vinegar with Dill Flower(680g)

I reckon if Mcds bottled em they could sell em for £2 a pop i would certainly buy a weekly bottle!

Thanks, having serious cravings for gherkins, pickled onions and Piccalilli at the moment, in the 1st trimester of pregnancy. Been getting through a jar a day of any of the above!
Mrs is addicted to these. Not even joking.

Me too I am always Jerkin' the Gherkin!

You're a Cucumber Spear

This is nothing personal to the poster but this post has made me realise that I have wasted far too much of my precious time on "chasing deals" on HDUK.

Saving pennies on pickled cucumbers is not really a "deal" for me. I've been here for ten years and have probably only clicked through to about one deal per year. If and when I want to lease a car, I'll be back. Fond regards.

This is NOT a HotUKDeal just a Leeds one.Bet we could all trawl round the supermarkets and find almost in everyone an item which they've reduced because they've over ordered.
I remember when this site did not allow one-offs to be called a HOTUKDEAL.
AN ITEM REDUCED IN ONE STORE
IS NOT A HOTUKDEAL!
