Thursday supermarket thread (marmitegate/unilever vs. tescos edition)


#1

@Balonz love to hear your thoughts on this


#2

I’ve actually been stockpiling my own source of Marmite for about a month now, I’d love to say it was in anticipation of this but it wasn’t.


#3

knock knock


#4

This has to be one of the most boring “headlines” in recent days. Christ.

I don’t shop at Tescbook so idgaf


#5

marmite, hellman’s, pg tigs (eurgh), dove, flora and bertolli, knorr, ben & jerry’s, bovrill, colman’s…

(even i buy dove bar soap and sometimes knorr stock pots)


#6

I am really low on marmite, I shit you not. I have to go to M&S at lunchtime (collect a new suit, £200 down to £35 in the sale!) so might pop into Tez and try to buy the last of the stock.


#7

Do Tesco do their own brand of marmite? How does it compare?


#8

Don’t shop at Tesco pal.

Excluding occasional visits to Expresses when I’ve been out on the road, I haven’t been in one for at least 4 years I’d say


#9

Maybe. I wouldn’t be allowed to buy it.


#10

#11

You’ve got a stash of excess yeast production?


#12

Probably exactly the same. From the same production line.


#13

yeah man, yeah! Tesco are the worst of all the supermarkets, hands down


#14

Asda has some CHip Shop McCoy’s which I might buy today

as for this, not really fussed, Tesco is a bit shit


#15

Sainsbo’s are pretty shit too. Their price:quality is all wrong.


#16

£200 down to £35!?


#17

In five or so years when we’re all in a bread queue somewhere or carting a shopping trolley full of cash down the street to buy milk we’ll look back on this as a warning.


#18

Don’t know why people would shit the bed about the price of Marmite. Even if you love the stuff, a jar of it lasts about three months. Even if it goes up by £1, you’re looking at a difference of less than 10p a week to your shopping.


#19

Was looking to buy some of that special edition extra-strength Marmite a while ago


#20

you are kidding, right? reckon a jar lasts 7-10 days at my gaff
