Got 3 of the £15 ones last weekend. This sounds good too though. The sticky toffee pudding is delicious.

Always a winner! ;-)

None of the other stores can match this deal for price or quality, even though they keep trying. Tesco's attempt at Mothers Day was a battery farm chicken and a bag of dubious vegetables for a fiver; an insult to any mother.

M&S meals always sound gr8 but whenever I get to our local Simply Food there is nothing ever left...

Always gets my vote!

OMG im gonna have it all to myself :-D

Will never get my vote and it's not always a winner as it may be a bargain for omnivores but it's a total waste of time for vegetarians.

I don't, for one minute, begrudge you "eat anything" folks your treats, it is just that M&S Head Office's emails on this subject show they just don't give a toss about providing a comparable value choice for the large number of vegetarians there are.

I don't eat anything with less than four legs, yet all I see is "chicken+fish" everywhere I go.

It's a choice, and majority rules I'm afraid.

You're just gonna have to live with it.

Hot from this omnivore. Really do think they should offer a veggie option though...can't think why they don't really. Ho Hum.....not many benefits of eating meat but this must be one of them I suppose.;-)

What a seemingly ill thought out and insulting post.

Not everyone can afford to fork out fifteen quid for Mothers' Day lunch and I would suggest that there were many 1,000s of families who were very grateful for the £5 Chicken and a Bag o' Veg deal.

The same can also be said of the Valentine's Deal. In my case, the £9 deal from Tesco was a much better value option, three dishes and a bottle of wine, and the vegetarian option was delicious but then we are very fond of Brie and caramelised onion parcels.

If you look you will see they offer a Vegetable Moussaka which is suitable for vegetarians. so they do offer an option

It's not that they don't offer a veggie option on these £10 deals, it's just that the choice is from just a small part of the veggie main dishes that they do sell and what is included is poor value for money by comparison with the non-veggie options.

Mind you, the Mothers' Day offering was a total joke for veggies as there was not even one option for us. :x

The other misunderstanding seems to be, as someone else suggested, that there aren't many vegetarians in the UK. Well, the most biased organisation of all, the Meat and Livestock Commission grudgingly admits that there are at least 4,000,000 of us and so I'm guessing the number is likely to be quite a bit higher. Either way, that makes us a VERY sizable minority - more of us than there are Liberal Democrats. :):)

It wasn't ill thought at all. I was comparing an abused chicken and bag of veg for £5 from Tesco with a three course meal with wine for £10 at M&S.

Some posters are professionals at getting offended on others behalf.

Horses, no probs. Deer etc also.

I didn't say I ate everything WITH four legs, that would be silly.

Although the Chinese down the road from me did get shut down for serving cat in place of chicken....

There were hardly any strays around for ages!!! :-D

:thumbsup: especially the stickly toffee pudding

So 1 in 15 people are veggies, and 1 in 9 of the main meals is veggie. That's disproportionate in favour of the veggies. Not only that, but 9 out of 10 of the accompaniments is veggie. And all of the deserts and all the wine.

The Vegetarian Society estimate between 3 and 4 millions veggies in the UK.

Edit: I've just seen 3 of the mains are fish too. Nowt to complain about there.

better than the £15 mothers day deal. they advertised it as for 4 people yet a lot of the products were the same as the ones in this deal for 2. same size aswell.

Woo Hoo when does the deal launch exactly?

the mains were not the same size the joints were the bigger ones
the sides bigger the desserts some were same but easily fed 4 depends what u chose

Thanks for posting this so early.

I think the puddings are a bit samey this time, and all very strictly two portions only (presumably to underline the fact that the £15 deal ones were larger than usual).

The Elderflower Presse was great for those of us who aren't so keen on wine, so it is a pity to see the bitter orange juice back on the menu.

Will still probably buy 2 deals, though!

Using this 'deal' it would cost £20 to feed a family of four. I could put a hell of a spread on for that!

Ice cold, learn how to cook fresh ingredients and save a fortune.

That was not what I was writing about and your reply above completely ignores the ill thought out bit. It was, to quote your words - Tesco's attempt at Mothers Day was a battery farm chicken and a bag of dubious vegetables for a fiver; [COLOR="Blue"]an insult to any mother.[/COLOR]

My point is that if someone could only afford a fiver, at least they could do something. To seeming belittle their efforts and thoughtfulness with your throw away - [COLOR="Blue"]an insult to any mother[/COLOR] - is unkind at the very least.

p.s. I'm not a professionals at getting offended on others behalf, I am just one of those others!

I agree with this but as a lazy meal this is better than a takeaway.

OK, no offence was intended,especially to those who wanted to make every effort to treat their mothers wherever they chose to shop. I just felt that Tesco could have made more of the offer. However, saying that my flatmate made good use of the 50 tulips for a fiver deal.

Just to let you all know the M&S clothes sale has already started online about 40 minutes ago. Got my order in! :-D

Appreciated and accepted - thank you. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

As to Tesco/Sainsbury/Morrisons etc needing to make more of an effort, let's not go down that dark and dirty alley or none of us will come out smelling of tulips!!!:roll::whistling:

IMHO Waitrose's similar offer beats M&S's hands down for value and quality but each to their own. Shame they don't offer it so frequently, mind.

And I agree about the relative poor value of the veggie option. The mousakka only costs £2.99 which is much cheaper than any of the animal-based products and barely makes it worth the effort.


@androoski - Fish are animals too, you know :roll:

@APil - Thanks for that revelation about nature. Many who claim to be veggies include fish in their diets you know. Pesce-vegetarians. Some even draw the line at red meat. That was the point.

All you veggies out there should get off your moral high horse..........You're all born as meat eaters for goodness sake.....

Bring on a nuclear winter and watch your supplements and vitamins go out the window when you need meat....
Survival of the fittest and omnivores rule !!!!

PS Voted HOT !!!

All the components of this deal were half price in Hastings M&S.

Good deal, good value
I have earmarked 4 as many can be frozen
