The hearty food company is just "tesco value" rebranded
"Eastmans" ham and "growers harvest" frozen veg are other ones

always check the ingredients, listed in order of greatest first, some cheap own brand stuff is pretty good, like some curry sauces can be high in more expensive ingredients like cream or coconut.

Those value meals are very watery

This is the cottage pie.
INGREDIENTS: Potato (59%), Beef (15%), Water, Onion, Carrot, Cornflour, Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Beef Fat, Tomato Purée, Caramelised Sugar, Onion Powder, Carrot Juice from Concentrate, Pepper, Black Pepper.

so 60g of beef, just a bit more than half a quarter pounder, miserable.

The "finest" cottage pie is 32%.

quarter pounder has 113g of beef, 60g is smaller than the little flat cheap burgers. And then what quality is the "beef" too.

That "hearty" range is best avoided

Oh yes !! Had the worst quiche ever from Eastmans. Couldn’t get any sort of taste from it.

We got no coupons, probably because we stopped shopping there a few months ago

I rarely shopped there last year, and got no coupons then. I've been shopping there every week since lockdown and still got no coupons, just my usual Clubcard ones.

Same, Tesco would be my primary market and similarly no coupons received. Last time there were reported coupons sent with the earned vouchers I complained to their customer support as to why I didn't receive any money off vouchers for being a loyal customers while infrequent shoppers had. After some arguing they said they couldn't re-issue vouchers and as a poor compromise added 1k points to my clubcard.

I have been a loyal Tesco shopper since early November. Especially during the lockdown with my shopping doubling as I was doing it for my elderly parents as well. Really disappointed to receive next to nothing after a huge significant spend. Contacted customer service and received a brush off, shocking stuff, really unhappy to say the least.

I've only done the odd bit of shopping in Tesco in the past 18 months. Haven't got any spend & save vouchers from them in that time, until now. Got six €5 off €25 vouchers in the post yesterday.
