Pop Tarts (chocolate and strawberry) £1.44 / £1.29 NUS @ co-op FROM TOMORROW

30
Found 19th May 2015
Just spoken to a member of staff about Pop Tarts on a shelf with no price. They will be on a national promotion as of tomorrow - £1.00 / 90p NUS. Similar price to Poundland (obviously!).

This was in Co-op Brighton.

Update: Looks like the member of staff made a mistake with the price, or head office saw this thread and changed the offer as they are now confirmed to be £1.44 / £1.29 with NUS rather than £1.00 / £0.90 with NUS.

Yep. That's what happened here but there were no signs anywhere, so I asked how much they were and was told about the promo starting tomorrow.

This should be their default price! Happy to pay a £1. They make a tasty treat ;3.. I've noticed Iceland (at least the borehamwood one) was doing strawberry & chocolate ones for a £1. Our Poundland have them in sometimes, and other times not at all.. Atm they're just stocked up on Apple

Same with the Apple ones in Poundland. I first discovered them a few weeks ago when Poundland had the strawberry ones. Really want to try the chocolate ones now I've seen them, but manager told me to wait until tomorrow.

Strawberry ones are my fav

You could do if you ate these and maintained a calorie deficit if overweight. Personally I'd get bored, you need variation, hopefully the wife didn't hear that. Right I'm off to the beach.

why would anyone ask about the price of pop tarts? That type of "food" is the reason poor people die young and childrens teeth fall out. YUK

save 10p and go to poundland instead?

You could say the same about bananas

slow release natural sugars? hardley the same thing. Although I have not mentioned bananas at least putting fruit in a childs hand is better than a can of coke and a pop tart.

Both types of sugar rot children's teeth.. and its almost identical amount of sugar in a poptart as a banana.

I was merely being just as facetious in my statement as you

Rubbish...

Two pop-tarts every couple of days isn't going to kill me or make me obese.

Children's teeth fall out because they are replaced by adult teeth!
My son doesn't have sugary drinks and only gets sweets once per week at most, but he has an enamel defficiency. Of course, people like you would look at his teeth and accuse us of being bad parents as it must surely be due to sugar intake etc. when he was actually just born like it.

So hot it's cool

I've always eaten high sugar snacks, when I was young I was addicted to sugar cubes, I'd eat them all the time.
After 38 years, my teeth are almost perfect ('almost', due to the 'I can open beer bottles with my teeth' party trick).
I'm also not on my death bed...

Poundland costs £1. Co-op costs £1 or 90p with NUS. How is Co-op more expensive?

Co-op on London Road (the one by McDonald's).

I love Pop-Tarts, not the healthiest breakfast though Not so keen on the Chocotastic ones as they remind me of bourbon biscuits. The Strawberry Sensation ones are my favourites!

Heads up these aren't suitable for veggies... Got gelatine (beef) in them

*Citation needed*

It can depend on the fruit, watermelons for example are worse than plain sugar in terms of "slow release" if you want to go down that route. However, a banana and a 250ml serving of coke have very similar glycemic loads and indexes i.e. blood sugar spikes are about the same, so are "slow release natural sugars" really not the same thing? I'm not trying to advocate coke and pop tart consumption, there are vitamins etc in the banana of course, just trying to make a point.

There is also no difference between "natural" sugars found in bananas and sugars "naturally" found in poptarts, they are literally the same thing.

I thought gelatine was made from pigs?

Pork gelatine is, beef gelatine isn't. Gelatine is basically collagen so can be from any source, it all does pretty much the same job.

It does, I like that Percy Pigs from Marks and Spencer uses pork gelatine and not beef X)

£1.44 (half price) in my local co-op.

Just been to the co-op and it looks like the manager either made a mistake or head office saw this last night and changed the offer! Will edit title when I get home to reflect the new price of £1.44 when I get home.
