This is a cracking deal. While stocks last..

Fresh, prime cuts of organic back bacon from Walls. Made from real pork loin. Not reformed. Smoked in barrels for a few years. Cured.

6 shunks per pack. Ideal for BBQ, kids lunch boxes and dinner parties.

Can be made into a casserole or simply a hog roast.

Can also be smoked if desired.

A great deal. Many thanks

NOT 'organic' & NOT 'Smoked in barrels for a few years.'

Also 'with added water'. In other words, processed rubbish.

Nowhere on the Tesco site does it claim to be Organic or smoked in barrels for a few years, where did you get this from?


And what is a Shunk?

How do you make a hog roast from sliced bacon?

It would seem that every time you post a deal they always seem to full of (to be kind) untruths/fabrications. Why do you do it? Just post the deals without untrue embellishments.
That's it, just looking for my coat!

A lot of what I've written is either from anecdotal evidence or is written on the packs in small print.

Occasionally, it's based on speculation.

But this deal is gaining a lot of heat and is from a good company.

Bacon rashers are actually very versatile. I use them in sandwiches and for pizza toppings. I have also put them into stews.

Anyway, I hope you will make good use of the deal.

As it's fresh meat, it is suitable for home freezing.

With kindest regards.

Please see formal reply below..

Hot deal terrible fabrication of a deals description. Smoked for years? From my experience I think walls actually use artificial smoke flavouring rather than cold smoking the meat. I may be wrong but either way unless you have bacon confused with whisky it's not been near a barrel for smoking.

Walls a good company, I suppose if you are comparing them to the makers of Richmond sausages you may be right!
No way organic, free range, just pig. It's not fresh meat, it's cured.
Btw.youve not got my coat have you?

Ps. I'd love to see the small print you seem to imagine.

Then why don't you leave and take your untruths with you, cos as far as I am concerned you are just as bad as a troll.
I am hardly trolling, I am just picking up on your fabricated/ untrue descriptions.

Or the reality that the deal itself isn't bad just the write up.

Took an age to reply as I was trying to make a hog roast with 6 rashers of barrel smoked back bacon. Damn near impossible.
Just to clear this is the same walls that make ice cream?

Originally the same company, but Unilever sold the meat business to Kerry Foods about 20 years ago.

By checking the ingredients. If there is more than one listed then it cannot be 100% anything. Also doesn't specify it's British on Tesco site. Just your post.

Please note that this is an exclusive Tesco offer and is not available at Ocado. Some items are specifically made for certain retailers and this may well be the case for these pork pies..

Thanks for your valuable input regardless.

Yes. But the end product is not pure.

I can use 100% fresh eggs to make a cake. Still a cake at the end of the 'process' no longer a pure egg as it has been changed through additional ingredients being added and the basic structure changed.

Were talking about you horrific bacon listing here. Your appalling pie listing is elsewhere.

Without going into the maths of this.. the 89% pork may well be 100% pure British pork, as 360 has eluded to. You cannot rely on listed ingredient but instread have to trust what they say and use common sense from time to time.

I got coated chicken strips the other day from Aldi which were made from 100% pure fresh British chicken. Yet the ingredients said ; chicken beast 76%. Goes to show..

Anyway, just thought I'd give you all a quick maths tutorial..

I see you have not answered the questions in my first comment.


Also your grasp of English is as poor as your facts when posting a deal
Eluded

escape from or avoid (a danger, enemy, or pursuer), typically in a skilful or cunning way.

Apologies Mr Trebor, but this was due to auto correct and of no fault of my own.

The word I wanted to use was 'alluded'

With best wishes and kind regards. And thanks for your comments.

I was referring to the Aldi/Lidl bacon pack in the above post. Your post is of no interest to me as I am unable to accurately make a purchasing decision based on the information you have provided.

I will enjoy my evening (in about 5/6 hours - for the time being I shall enjoy my afternoon, and hope you do the same)
