    I've just seen a garden full of blue ones, according to its owner they are an early variety.

    Maybe your yellow ones are an early variety too.

    Lunch meal deal not too bad, 3.50 for sandwich, botlle of coke or other fizzy and packet of MS cwispies, 50p to pay, or 2 meal deals and they have double packs of biscwits for 1.50, so 3+5 = 50p to pay.

    Also look out for reduced items too.

    Butter 1.40 or 1.45 - same as the supermarkets
    ice cream - quite a lot of at RTC prices so worth having a look eg Christmas pudding flavour
    Drinks - have a look at the Christmas varieties as some of these are RTC - our store had an entire row of different versions, about 8 - these would make nice presents for later in the year

    I am hoping that the 6 meal deal comes back - side, main and a dessert, even with the 3 AP they worked out good value. The choice wont be the same next time but this is what we got. Some meals I have to make stretch to three people and quite a few things were good choices.
    I got for sides - potato croquettes and rosties as these freeze well and they area good side veg with roasts, sausages, stews, cooked breakfasts etc.
    Mains - there was a full size chicken, ham and leek pie - enough for 3 of us with plenty of veg etc. Also breaded chicken, 4 really thick ones - really one [per person was enough, good to use sliced up for fajitas so easily enough for 3.
    Desserts - full size apple and blackberry lattice pie, peach roulade - all plenty enough for 3 or 4 people. I also got the sticky toffee pudding and we had this with Carte Dor vanilla, again enough for 3.

    I think you need to spend at least 3.49 at underpass to get the 500 points?

    Mushrooms are food of the devil so only 4 Doctors for us assuming I can get some vouchers. Filler against S - I notice you can do two free Happy Downs of each flavour on clicksnap - don't really know what to do with my stash though - perhaps put them into the DKs (13, 12, 9) pack lunches?

    Forgot to check, are these vouchers useable online for collection or can you order in store?

    ...although even if the droids are half and half 3s and 5s (and I think actually they are skewed towards 3s) that would still be 16 returns of 8 items....
