Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. All the supermarkets have a cheapo range. Sainsburys have always been a bit up themselves - not quite Waitrose, but nearly.

    Anyway, they've got their orange and white "Basics" range, which is similarly priced to Asda and the rest, but the quality is really good. Tuna chunks are big chunks, not mush, the 39p pasta sauce doesn't have any crap (like artificial sweetner) in it, the muesli is wholegrain with no added sugar at 59p a kg, the apples are proper varieties and not fekin Golden Delicious, the natural yoghurt is the best I've tasted, the 50p 800g wholemeal loaf is okay. 205g packets of sliced chicken breast for £1.18 - a bit of pea starch in it, but pretty good. They do 9p jars of curry sauce as well.

    As long as you don't mind having a basket like Mason Boyne it's value.

    Try the tins of chicken curry,great cold or over chips,the frozen chicken portions,under £4 for a big **** off bag are really good value!
  3. Stir Fry veg for a quid is good, but yes I rate the 9p curry sauce.
  4. Trust you to be about when there talking about cheap food saying that Ive never heard you talk about veg before, obviously it was the kebab van at Bordon on your Tiffy course that changed your ways :wink: .
  5. The spag bol they do isn't bad and it's quite low in fat!
