Yes, those singular giant Quality Street chocs are reduced in my local Tesco Express. Dunno if it is national or just local, but they are luvly! All stores should be reducing this stuff around now. Get 'em at this price if you see them.

Purple ones were 9p at Sainsbury last week.

Don't take this the wrong way....but can a saving of pence REALLY be called a 'hot deal'?
There was a time when you could come on here for amazing savings.

No different to a 30p pack of cat food reduced to tuppence

I agree and voted accordingly.

One man's hotdeal is another man's damp squib ( whatever a damp squib is)

What's a damp squib?

Every squid, seeing as they live in water.

It's all about percentages..........Voted Hot :thumbsup:

If something is expected to have a great effect or impact but doesn't, it is a damp squib.

big purple ones reduced in wilkos also down to 9p each, had orange ones as well.

Squib, not squid :thumbsup:

according to wik......
Origin of the phrase "damp squib
"Being an explosive, cheaper uninsulated squibs need to be kept dry in order to ignite, so a "damp squib" is literally one that fails to ignite because it got wet. The phrase "damp squib" has since come into general use to mean anything that fails to meet expectations..

The squid on my digital ariel is wet tonight, but that doesn't live in water?? But it doesn't have a very big impact on my TV signal, so I suppose it is a damp squib squid :oops:

This is all getting very Monty Python isn't it?

If you run a football team and have 14 lads who you like to treat after a match then it's a great saving! I don't think people should vote on the amount saved or just because a deal isn't for them. Surely it's all about percentages and it is a good saving.

Unfortunately for me I can't eat them

No, I disagree..... the whole point of voting is whether each person, as an individual, thinks a deal is hot.
Obviously, I am in a minority, but saving pence doesn't make an amazingly hot deal for me.
Now I didn't want to cause an argument, merely to voice an opinion. :thumbsup:

Less than a quarter of the orig price. Vote hot, good deal. Thanks

I might have had a serious amount of pop by now, but this seems like a really good deal for anyone who can still get into the clothes that they were wearing before Christmas to me. If you can stagger to Tesco - take advantage.
Blow the pennies, look after the pounds - weight/money/whatever-you-like

There's nothing like a Tesco Express in my part of the world - just moved on from horse and cart so there's a vacuum.

Scribbles, my poppet, hope that you're still on-line to grab a few Whittards items - cappucino wasn't it?


Don't be misled by the on-line name ( as simplygifted was! in a different thread)!

Squib/squid - who's admitting to dyslexia predjudice? Only molluscs?

Yes, what is it? Greek I think - no vowel ending

I saw a box of them and bought the lot, all 27 of them LOL
I asked the manager if he could do me a deal on the lot, but he wouldn't. Tight git!

Of course it can. That's 79% off. Buy 1000 and that's £90 instead of £410. :thumbsup:

its 1 poxy sweet for 9p not even worth 9p

I gotta agree with Fleet here... more and more times on this site we're getting deals of product x down from say £1 down to 30p etc, ie really low price stuff,
and not what I'm really on the look out for when I search for hot deals!

Yum Yum!

"A squib is a small explosive device used in a wide range of industries, from special effects to military applications."

en.wikipedia.org/wik…ive)

I'm having a squib for dinner tonight - will go down well.

the 'saving pence' complaint would make sense if it was reduced from £20.49 to £20.09, but if something is reduced by a large percentage, the saving adds up when you buy a bunch of them.

If you don't think pennies make a difference, tell that to Societe Generale - the French bank which just lost several billion Euros because a large number of shares were sold after going down by 'a few pence' each

Personally, I'd like to see a separate category for these supermaerket daily items types of deals. If ASDA are doing a TV for £20, then it may be a hot deal, heinz tomato soup for 12p isn't. Have a separate "Supermarket savers" tag, and let the rest of us read on.

Yes, because reduced chocolate is equatable with shares. :roll:

I agree with some of the sentiments in this thread - deals like this are UTTERLY pointless and are turning the site into a joke. Aside from the horrible redesign, the frequency of rubbish deals like this are making me visit the site less and less.

Would you say the same thing if the deal was for cadbury creme eggs? I'll bet that everyone would have nowt but glowing praise for such a deal.

I would say exactly the same - what a stupid question.

I consider this a fantastic deal... But then again I also agree that these sort of supermarket savings should be in a seperate thread.
