Sainsburys Basics Fish Fingers x10 (250g) - now reduced to 17p a pack - great for fish finger sarnies!
I picked these up this afternoon in my Local Sainsburys (Penarth) lots left in the freezer, so not sure if it just applies to the smaller Local stores or if it's in the regular stores aswell. They have a red 'sale' label on the shelf reduced from 69p to 17p. I thought it would be worth a post as it might be worth having a look if you're instore anyway. I know they're not cod or haddock fillet etc..but they are a bargain for 17p
Ingredients:
MSC Certified Alaskan Pollock (58%); Batter; Signature™ Breadcrumb; Palm Oil.Batter contains: Country Ground™ Wheat Flour, Water, Salt.Signature™ Breadcrumb contains: Country Ground™ Wheat Flour, Yeast, Salt, Turmeric, Colour: Capsanthin.

Do they? I gather that you have tried them then?


Fish Fingers for 17p? Sounds fishy to me (but only 58% fishy)!!!

Birds Eye are 64% fishy.

fraid so.. at 69p too (thought they might be the same as Youngs, but for..17p Bargain!)

At 17p it is good value cat food - voted hot.

I can feel a fish finger sandwich coming on.

Students, fill your freezers!

They're not bad imo. Might be store specific, clearing old stock as they've recently changed the packaging to a new design

And people say you can't feed your family for a fiver!

I take it you guys didn't watch the report by Dispatches.

cheap post-pub food. Wouldn't eat if sober though.

yum yum black pepper + salad cream sarnies with said fingers:-)

Do you like fish sticks? Do you like putting fish sticks in your mouth? What are you, a gay fish? Good old south park

Dread to think what's in these...apart from Tranny fats...No thanks, good price for putty cat food.

mmmm fat tranny

They have to get rid of the heads and other rubbish from fish somewhere, it costs a fortune to dump it ;-)

Sounds like cat food is better quality than these.

Who cares, if it taste's ok then stuff what's in them, Stop being fussy and eat up, Their like eco finger's, Less fish killed, more in the ocean's.

DIRRRRRRRRRTTT KEEP EM

These are fine, good lord there are so many snobs about. I have never checked the ingredients in these but know that Asda's Smartprice fish fingers used to (might still have) 1% more fish in them than BirdsEye. Personally I don't care where on the fish it comes from, it's fish, it's ALL good for you!!!

Edit: SP fish fingers have 2% more fish than birdseye

Does anyone else have a deep-seated hate of the word sarnie? Who the hell decided to start calling them sarnies instead of sandwiches, it's not like it's even that much of an abbreviation. I hate that word so much.

do they contain fish? xD

Banned

Fish eyes and fish ar$ewhole in batter. Sweet

haha people are probably right with the cat food (have u ever tried it, not to bad when u get over the fact its catfood), but its the same as most "fish" fingers, and "chicken" nuggets, but hey if it tastes good it hasnt killed us yet

Price great......product disgusting,more fish on a fishmongers knife

Well when I hear the word in my head I always picture it being said by a northern woman with a really grating voice, so it makes sense. Try saying it to yourself impersonating a northern woman with an irritating voice and then tell me the word isn't annoying.

+1 - LOL at some of the comments in this thread and the bandwagon effect - getting worked up about fish fingers and the word sarnie! Methinks some people have got confused between meat and fish, as most fish fingers are now made with Alaskan Pollock and Sainsburys Basics are made by Youngs seafoodsource.com/new…272

These how about as much fish as corn in my crap,which is none.

is it snook?

Likely to be made with 100% fish fingers at this price.

OMG this is epic, its pretty much all i eat!!!!

dont listen to the naysayers, bit of basics ketchup and ur good to go!

Gross. would feed to my cat at a push. I reckon some pubs use this sort of stuff tho for their kids menus. Yuk

Not a snob - just that minced fish in value fingers is all sort of muck. No problem with other value stuff like tinned toms or kitchen roll and what not :-) I'm all for a bargain - as obviously, being on here we all are!

You must be living in a dreamworld if you think it is at all possible to sell decent quality (ie, worthwhile eating) fish for 17p.

hmmmm....fatten up the neighborhood cats on this, then a nice moggie stirfry

this is brilliant if you are increasin your protein intake as part of a diet. these cheap fishfingers are always the same protein content as expensive fish fingers (£2.00 a box) and yes, maybe they are scales, gills and eyeballs, but for 17p for all this protein... I don't know a cheaper way to get virtually fat-free protein intake.

Yes!

Thank you.

"Cordial" is another one of my hated words.

Lol, what a thread... I wonder what some people here are like if they were in some asian country where it's the norm to eat an entire fish, eyeballs and all. Good value imo, not bothered what 50+% of the fish is in it myself.
