Waitrose HALF PRICE Burgers (cheese or onion) now £2.14 instore / online

17
Found 10th Sep 2017
Now £2.14 (was £4.29)
4 burgers, 454g

Two flavours:

1) Cheddar cheeseHERE
or
2) Onion & shallotHERE

I'm not posting these because they are THE CHEAPEST EVER BURGERS, but I tried both types and I really liked them so I think it's a decent deal. I'm not saying they're THE BEST BURGERS EVER, but they were enjoyable, certainly better than average supermarket burger. Worth trying anyway if you're in Waitrose.

Also, Waitrose have many other half price items right now, some of which are very decent deals too. Don't forget your Waitrose card/myWaitrose offers! That free coffee ain't gonna drink itself

Well, you can buy your "mechanically recovered" beef and rusk and additives burgers somewhere else - but I'd rather eat something that actually tastes and is made from decent ingredients.

The problem here in the UK is that people seem convinced that food is just a fuel and can be produced cheaply - it can, but at a massive cost to your health, animal welfare and the quality of the end product. Mad cow disease, salmonella, added horsemeat, use of condemned carcases - all products of this mindset.
Sounds like you've got more money than sense. I shop at Aldi and buy they're fresh burgers and I'm happy with the ingredients on the back with no mention of 'mechanically separated' anything. They're always £2, not £4 reduced to £2 to make you think you're getting a bargain when the reality is you're not!

As I said, these are not THE CHEAPEST burgers out there, however for the taste and quality they are worth trying whilst half price, and yes this is a genuine reduction compared to normal WAITROSE prices.

Yes, I understand that Aldi is cheaper, but for the sake of 14p, I hardly think that means I have more money than sense. To me, a good deal is not only about how cheap an item is, but also takes into account other factors such as quality/enjoyment derived from a product/convenience etc.

Nail on head!

As I recall, a few years back, Aldi was found to have sold products containing horsemeat (of dubious origin), whereas Waitrose was not. It appeared to be more common among the cheapest supermarkets.

You might have that back to front. Aldi and Lidl source most of their products in-country where possible - that means most of their fresh/chilled meats are UK sourced, and not Polish horsemeat. Of course, if the contamination was in a prepack frozen meal, then all bets are off.

As I remember it Iceland came out worst, with one of their frozen lasagne ranges containing 100% horsemeat.

The best budget burgers I know of (and the only ones I know I can safely eat), are Lidl's Scottish Beef burgers, they use potato and rice flour instead of wheat rusk. Wheat brings the risk of wild yeast, and I have a rare illness that gets triggered by yeast. Aldi probably have their own version, but the nearest Aldi is 12 miles away.

OK, thanks; however you have read it incorrectly, that is a list of products withdrawn as a precaution; if you look to the far right it says "x tests, no contamination found" for Waitrose, Aldi and Lidl.

Interestingly, I cannot find Findus on that list, and AFAIK, it was Findus lasagne from Iceland that started the whole horsemeat saga.

I wonder if anyone trusts the BBC with its reputation now quickly becoming on par with The Sun.

...but on topic, these burgers are far better tasting than normal supermarket burgers.
I usually make my own burgers from mince, onions, egg and chilli/herbs but I thought I'd try some pre-made. It was a toss up between these (not on half price offer) and 2 GBK burgers which were on offer... I wouldn't by the GBK burgers again that's for sure! Maybe I'll try these or maybe I'll just continue making my own!
