    ^ i agree, emzy.

    I went in Tesco today and their stuff is soooooooo much cheaper than what i've been paying locally, at least a third cheaper, with some products a whopping 50% cheaper than in local Orkney shops!.

    I am unethical i suppose but my shopping bill will now go back down from over 100 each week to around 60-70, and that's a lot of difference on a tight budget.
    Well Tesco have got a good deal on fruit and veg atm...like 50% off on most items. My food bill was only 25 this week...which is a fuck load less than normal!

    Just found these chicken style fillets in my local tesco, labelled vegan & they also do chicken style dippers!
    No sign of these in my local Tesco so i e mailed them and got this back!


    Thank you for your email.

    I understand that you're looking for meat-free chicken style fillets. I've checked our database for you, but couldn't find the item that you're looking for.

    Our computers only work with very precise, detailed descriptions or barcodes. If I enter a description like 'baked beans' the system will come up with over 100 products. This often means that, unless we have more precise details, we won't be able to find the product you're asking about.

    If you can give me the description as it appears on the product, the price and/or the barcode, I will do my utmost to locate the item. If you don't have all these details, please give me as much information as you have



    Anyone?
    Cheers

    Sorry to hear you haven't found these in your local tesco gogs. How big is your local store? It may be worth looking in one of the larger stores perhaps? I found the pic that I posted above on the tesco home shopping website, but I buy the fillets & nuggets from my local. You need to be registered with tesco online but perhaps you could do that then a search in home shopping? Just an idea, if they appear it may be that they are available to you locally :O)

    Boo! Maybe they haven't stocked them in all stores yet. I just looked to see if I could find a product code but there isn't one sorry. All I can suggest is to keep your eye on the frozen section & hope that they appear, or email tesco with a photo copied from the one I posted? Good luck!

    I found the chicken-style fillets and dippers in my local tesco yesterday, think they've only just appeared there. I noticed they also had some non-vegan nut cutlets (in the old packaging) next to the vegan ones (in the new packaging) - I guess they're just using up the old stock but watch out in case any others are doing the same! Would be easy to pick the wrong ones up if you were in a hurry.

    They don't stock these in any Tesco in Hertfordshire or Bedfordshire! Pisses me off because the biggest Tesco I have ever seen in my life is about 30mins from my house!

    My local Chinese supermarket do great chicken 'style' pieces but they're kinda dear so any other option would be handy!

    And got this very nice, if a tad disappointing, reply!

    Further to your enquiry.

    Please accept my apologies for the disappointment my reply may cause regarding the availability of these two products.

    I have checked our data base and unfortunately the nearest store stocking the Dippers and Fillets is the Glasgow St Rollox.

    Once again I am sorry there is not a store stocking in your area.

    If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us at customer.service@tesco.co.uk quoting TES5377.

    Kind Regards

    Ann Massie
    Tesco Customer Service

    Ah well, cheers for the help KJ!

    I bought the new vegan nut cutlets the other day at my local Tesco but no chicken-style fillets or dippers have appeared yet, there's only a small veggie section. I think they taylor their ranges to suit what sells best and as I don't live in a particularly veggie-friendly area they don't stock the full range, but if they don't try them out they won't know if they prove to be popular or not. If they don't appear soon I'll ask if they're going to stock them.

    Sorry to hear the response wasn't very positive, Gogs, but hopefully they may appear in your local tesco soon.

    I did notice yesterday that Tesco have changed the recipe of their reduced fat salad cream, it now contains egg, which is annoying. Can anyone suggest an alternative? Thanks.

    Sainsburys and Co-op reduced fat salad cream are free from egg, and so is the brand Waistline.

    im sur the alpro organic "cheese" will be like the one you get from provamel in germany. there was already a thread and all i can tell is, that it tastes a bit sour. it reminds me a bit of sourcream.

    i wonder which tesco might have all that stuff, cus mine does neither cheezly nor the alpro "cheese"

    None that I have ever frequented have ever stocked it - so I was positively palpitating when I spotted this!

    The alpro cheese is pretty nice. Yep, it is a little sour, and seems a bit part way between what i remember cream cheese and cottage cheese to be like.

    I found the alpro creamy 'cheeze' a bit grainy, I much prefer Scheese creamy ones to be honest, and there are more flavours. A shame because it's organic and I would prefer to buy organic if poss.

    I'm not sure about Tesco doughnuts.........on page 2 of this thread there is talk of them not being vegan. I remember reading somewhere else on the forum that ingredients vary from one store to the next and that some have milk in them.
    I really really hope they are vegan as I used to love their jam doughnuts but haven't had one in years! I wish I knew for certain, as last time I was just about to go out and buy a bag when I read that they might not be vegan!
    Does anyone know for sure?
