ASDA Extra Large Turkey Crown 8.48/kg. The price mentioned is the price per kg and the price you pay will depend on the weight of the turkey. The weight band for this Turkey is between 3.5kg - 5.5kg.

Bernard Matthews Mini Turkey Crown (Approx 1.1Kg) 9 (8.18/Kg) at Sainsbury's.

And Aldi were also doing turkey crowns a couple of weeks ago for 9.99 (1.8kg-2.4kg, 4.16-5.55 per kg).

Try your local butcher and ask how much their turkeys are, ask how much their whole turkeys are as well. I think I've got this right: 7.89/kg is approximate 3.57/lb. You never know, your butcher may sell turkeys cheaper.

Also, a frozen turkey might work out cheaper for some as well.

We always go to Bury market on Christmas eve where you can get them half price as they don't want to be left with them. I paid 10 last year for a huge one but sorry I can;t remember the weight but it was huge and was originally 20 which was already good value being on the market.

These Crowns must be the most expensive way to buy turkey around ! think about it , your paying premium price for less turkey for ( or should that be Kilos ! ) nah , i`m a person ! lol
Why not just buy a Turkey , Fresh or Frozen , remove the Wings , Legs and the Backbone , it`s not hard and you have your Crown plus Legs for another day and the Wings and backbone for your stock pot to make lovely soups and gravy !
Will cost you around 1/2 the price of a crown for about 15 mins work ! Give it a try !
A Bast**d I May Be ! I Was Born One !
Whats Your Excuse ?
