15 quid for a 7kg turkey at Iceland



You clearly haven't tasted M&S, Iceland compared to M&S, really?

Yeah I would have thought that too but ended up with an Iceland Golden something or other..... It was one of the nicest I have had.

I'll try this and come back and tell you.

Our M & S were selling theirs off on 27th December there were loads even the ones at £80 - yes turkeys originally £80 - they were all down to around £8 to £12 - bargain if you have the freezer space to put one.:)

That Turkey looks like a Heart.

Not the most helpful but ..

M&S isn't what it used to taste like.

Now overpriced for the quality you get imo.

I've been a chef for over 25 years & can assure you my good fellow, that a turkey is a turkey no matter how you dress it up & so makes no difference if buying from M&S or even B&Q :-/

Well if you think frozen meat is the same as fresh meat I hope I don't end up in your restaurant.

Well its more about the farm it was bred on than the shop you bought it from.....

Oooooh, didn't know b&q sold turkeys. Handy for next year.

Samshoz was not talking about how it was stored, but more about it just tasting better.
Snagzie is correct & then it's down to the buyer on how they cook it.So again it's not down to the shop you buy it from.

Really? Work in any decent restaurant or the microwavable meal re-heater type joint?

RE the above argument:

I know that at one point, it was uncovered that cheap supermarket meat was (/is?) often pumped through with extra water, to increase the weight? Therefore, turkey probably CAN differ in taste / texture, depending on the store from which it was bought and the profiteering techniques employed there...

Also, the specific breed of a bird is likely to have an impact on its' flavour.

You do realise that the premium products at places like M+S are made at the same places as the budget stuff, I remember when I worked in a fish factory and we did M+S salmon pieces that were labelled at around £10, after the order of about 2 or 3 thousand was made we changed the labels to Tesco Value, same fish just far cheaper. I also worked in a biscuit factory and the same sort of thing was done with supermarket premium brand there, was little to no difference most of the time.

They do this with biscuits,pies,sausages etc as well.Just stick it in the M&S packaging & charge them double.The smug donuts will still think they have better/richer foods LMAO.

Agree,besides m+s is nothing special nowadays .

Last one in Twickenham M&S was marked up at £4.80 (reduced from £44.56). Wow, thinks I, can't beat that.
Oh yes, you can - took it to the till where it scanned at half price - £2.40 Feeds 10 - 14, apparently. So that's 17p a portion.

We all have an inner Snob in us.

In truth, we are all equal.

Even on this site, some think they are "more equal" than others.

Its all in the supermarkets marketing/TV ads, they brainwash us into thinking quality or value.

We are a fickle bunch.

I worked in a pea plant once.

Best stuff went in M&S.

Next best went in brand names, like Birdseye.

Worst of crop went to supermarket own brands.

That was years ago though.

As to chef who thinks it all tastes the same? Many things can alter the taste of meat. If you buy chicken breasts from a good quality butcher or farm shop, you can very much tell it is different compared to the tough breasts that come from the supermarket.

As to Turkey- Breed, the way it is reared, fed, treated in post slaughter production can all result in differing quality and taste. I am not saying M&S is better than the Iceland one because for all I know the Iceland one is a good quality bird. If the chef thinks a Turkey is a Turkey, they all taste exactly the same and are the same quality no matter what price, then let us all know where you work, so we can avoid your place- if you are in charge of buying, no doubt your only consideration is cheapness of ingredient. Whilst I am no chef this seems to fly in the face of my own experience and when you see high quality chefs talking about quality of ingredients.

Funny how a pea-shooter think's he/she knows more than a chef of over 25 years with City & Guilds 706 1&2, but I supposed on the Net we can be great at anything Ehhhh.

You seem to have only read my first post & forgot about post 12 ?

You stick to pea-shooting & I'll stick to cooking quality foods on a daily basis.

Most chefs I know don't even like eating that's a fact ha so the poor bloke was just saying if u want cheap turkey go to Iceland lol.

Hmm most chefs I have worked with would eat your mum if served with chips & not forgetting drinking 3 gallon of booze :-)
The point I was making was that a turkey is a turkey & it's down to the cook.
I also pointed out that you can buy better turkeys,but M&S selling better than elsewhere is crazy talk.
You buy one from M&S & get a chef buy one from iceland & i would be very confident his would be much nicer.If not, then he's in the wrong game.


Well I've read some tosh today....I would bet that half the Turkeys or produce (quality or not) sold either from the posh shops or the lowly supermarkets were anywhere near cooked, served or presented properly... at home this Christmas

Quality produce needs a quality cook/chef to deliver the very best from it, even poor quality produce can be enhanced by
someone with skill and knowledge

All this talk of yet more turkey is making me feel sick.

You whinging bunch of girls....read all the comments.....pathetic how people can get riled about a sale on TURKEYS!! YES TURKEYS!!!!
