Yes, I have just ordered 20 creme eggs (for £2 – it’s a bargain!). I won’t be eating them all…honest!
Approved food has the kind of stuff you get down the market on those stalls that sell packets and jars of things at a discount. I usually make a beeline for those tables when I’m there as they always have some good offers.
Approvedfood has a variety of stuff – some of it looks like tins that are a bit bashed (the mushroom soups were bashed a bit when they turned up) but I don’t mind that. Also there are ends of lines (e.g. the creme eggs which are a bit out of season now!) and some packets of things with the labels taken off (I guess the manufacturers don’t want us to know that they’re doing the food at a discount.
It’s not the sort of site where you can do all your shopping but it’s good to stock up on cheaper versions of things you would buy anyway. If you’re not sure if something really is cheap then check it against Mysupermarket.com and you’ll find out there.
I definitely think it’s worth a go. I’ll be going back, even if it’s for more chocolates and tins!
