Eggstraordinary pricing

#1
I like Cadbury creme eggs -but even I struggled over the best price for a while in Tesco today.

Single egg - 60p

3 eggs in a box - £1 (33p each)

6 eggs in a box - £2.95 (49p each)

12 eggs in a box - £3.50 (29p each)

then by the till...

3 x 6 eggs in a box £5.00 (27p each) - not advertised by the main shelves.

I'm not good enough for the decimals but the above averages in brackets should be close enough.


My brain hurts.

The only flaw with this system is that you end up having to eat Cadbury creme eggs.

That is Cadburys' "chocolate" that only missed being classified as tile grout by the smallest of margins.

If you got a job and amounted to something in life you would not have to scrat round worrying about pennies. Deadbeat.

The Cadbury's Creme Egg game.

You will require...

some leery mates who you hate.

Half a dozen deep frozen Cadbury's Creme Eggs

One normal Cadbury's Creme egg.

You shout "I bet none of you can do this" and chuck the normal Cadbury's Creme egg in the air and catch it in your gob.

Cue your mates giving it "Yeah, go on then".

You chuck the deep frozen Cadbury's Creme eggs in the air and watch as their broken teeth hit the tarmac.

Fun for all the family.

Yup and everything else supermarkets sell are the same. When shopping in general I look at the price per kg or litre or unit cost. Pre-packed salad per kg is more expensive than fillet steak.

almost as good as feeding them to labradors tied outside the shop the gluttonous *******
Ah. The Sport of Kings. Feeding handfuls of chocolate to Labs tied up outside a shop / pub. In the sure and certain knowledge they will skitter all over their owners carpets and cheap Ikea furniture.

I think that's what you meant.

Tesco pricing is mad. Several times I have noticed multiples cheaper than single items.

And yes Cadburys is cack. We were given two 600g boxes from reps at Christmas. Opened one for guests and the wife. Noticed a few weeks ago only four had gone whilst after eights ferro concrete's etc vanished right away. Tried one. Vile thing tasted like toilet duck so sent both boxes back. Still waiting for voucher ,apology or preferably money.
By the way noticed they were made "under licence" in Europe. That would be Romanian tractor,polyfilla and chocolate factory number 9 then.

Is this the same Cadburys who when bought by some US firm said they would not be moving production anywhere, then before the ink dried on the contract they were hoofing people out of their jobs and sending everything to eastern europe?

I thought they tasted different! Now I know why they taste like yank shite.
The UK is, and has been plundered since the Thatcher years. The efforts of generations of British people, whether they be workers of mind or hand are being stolen and frittered away to allow the owners of banks to keep themselves in their unearned luxury.

Or get it a pint when it's your shout. There's nothing funnier than a drunken lab. {Gibsons} :p :p

Don't get me started.

The other week the slippery bastard that runs our local grocery store/newsagents/Post Office/trading post/ammunition store/tractor repair centre/swinging & dogging information exchange and hub of all ******* activity and gossip within a 5-mile radius had some "Hershey Bars" up alongside the till. 'Cos there's only the one till serving the whole shooting match, I was constrained to endure three lonely octogenarians' respective life-stories, one dispute over the shelf price vis-a-vis the till price of out of date ******* free-range eggs and a lengthy phone call regarding the non-delivery of that day's Daily Mail before reaching the head of the queue. I was taking no chances. I'd seen them on M*A*S*H and figured they must be ******* good, seeing as here they were still knocking around 40 years later. Who knew when I'd get the chance again? Five, please.

******* disastrous. Actually tasted what I can only describe as vomit-like. Unbelievably bad.

I've four (and a half) left over if there's any homesick Septics out there want 'em. You poor bastards.

The Holywood team was gifted a box of 48 after clearing a shop of incendiaries.

Malky ate most of them (44 IIRC) in one day.
