Asda Smartprice corned beef warning

54
Found 13th Feb 2012
Having picked up a tin of Asda Smartprice corned beef (340gms) I noticed they had changed the tin shape,now looks like a tin of spam.

Anyway I bought it and when I opened it the first thing I noticed is it didn't look like corned beef,more like luncheon meat,but beef instead of pork.The taste was disgusting,its going back today for a refund.
Be warned this so called corned beef is made in........Romania !!!!,Not South America where most of it comes from

Does smartprice corned beef need to come with any additional warning other than its name???
Sorry OH is in the process of returning it.Their website still shows the old style tins,but they have changed all the smartprice labels and in this case the tin shape.Also the price was £1.58 a tin,not £1.39 as on their website.

I'm just saying it looks and tastes nothing like corned beef as we know it.I just thought I would warn people of the fact thats all.In the past I have found just as good as other brands of corned beef

Fail on so many levels

1. Buying corned beef
2. Buying "smart price" corned beef
3. Highlighting both of the above facts.
Corned beef is what we won wars on....food of the Gods,Corned beef and picallili sandwiches...you've never lived.:D
Corned beef sandwiches nicely toasted in a Brevill sandwich maker are fab
OP you = brave

a) you admit to the whole internet the fact that you buy not only asda smart price stuff but asda smartprice corned beef

b) you admit to the whole internet that you will happily return asda smart price items and so will your wife

c) i like the tiles in your bathroom

Why the hell is corned beef so expensive is beyond me , i dont eat it personally but Husband asked me to get him some as a change from ham etc......paid about £2.50 for 4 slices oO..and that smelt and looked like something you would give the dog so god knows what cheap tinned stuff smells /tastes like ..yuk lol

I have never had meat from a tin ever, I don't intend to ever go there either.

Purely down to the simple fact that the boys had two choices: 1) take a headshot 2) get back home to real food asap. With those two choices I'd want to win a war as quick as poss.

Being a bit of a corned beef expert

About 3 to 4 years ago it was 39p a tin for a very long time then suddenly it doubled to 78p,it then has slowly crept up to over £1.50 a tin with the likes of Fray Bentos well over £2 a tin oO
As you say God knows why it is so expensive.

It mostly comes from South America, always has - it's actually a cured product so the cooking twice thing is odd!
Corn Beef tastes like crap no matter the tin.

make your mind up (france or romania)

hotukdeals.com/mis…413

either way, its about as bad as 'food' can get
Why is it unexpected for the OP to be buying smart price items, we are all on a deals forum.
Saying that I will admit, I do go for a branded CB, but given the latest horsemeat drama, it seems that trusting well known brands isn't going to always get you a better product.

I love Cornbeef & Beetroot sarnies, or Cornbeef hash.
Ive just realised this is nearly a yr old!!!!!!
