    I am probably too late as usual, certainly too late to see any stock on the shelf of my store tonight:

    Birds Eye Breaded Nuggets 22 pack - possibly 45p in Sains. if the 'normal' price label on the shelf of my store is correct.

    It seems they are showing 3 online on sains.co.uk, where I notice picture of packaging saying "New recipe". I might want the old recipe. This does not say RTC at all on the SEL in my store. If the price it shows is correct, and despite this seeming not to be RTC, you will pay more if you buy this item from Mr T as it does not take instore prices but will probably match 3 online. Enough of that bugbear again - onto the other things:

    Everything that I have concerned myself with in S has been a different price today to what is showing online. Some Starburst large pouches - showing 1.25 online but, today, they are scanning at 1. I suspect they may be going up to 1.25 tomorrow as one of my Ss has 1.25 on each of them on the SEL and the other I tried has a missing SEL for one of them - not usual for me to see that SELs are missing in S but today have have more than one. One item I suspected might be on cheap reduction because it's no longer online and there was no SEL on the shelf, initially came up with "Item not found" when scanning at the SS but then came up with a full price - seems they have taken the opportunity to increase the price by 30p from the standard price it has been at for a long time until now.

    I have KTC Rapeseed Oil 1L with a SEL of 50p - marked "whilst stocks last", no stock today but I was told it may come back in. Apparently not KTC Extended Life Rapeseed Oil 1L as that scans at full price in the other store. I tried KTC Sunflower Oil 1L at the till (didn't say "Extended Life" on the bottle but how I am to know?) - it was absent from the store with the SEL for Rapeseed Oil on RTC and therefore I thought maybe that's also on RTC and is absent because it has already cleared - tried the other store but I'm told it is 1.25 although I still have my doubts about whether it really is. The SS had closed unfortunately.

    The other store also had KTC Plum Tomatoes tin (400g) saying 20p RTC - once again no stock. I found some KTC Chopped Tomatoes tins (400g) on the top shelf in another part of the store with no SEL on them and took them to be checked and I'm told they are 40p. Again this is a different price to online, which I notice says 30p.

    Perhaps I will find stock of the Rapeseed Oil at 50p later at the place that has the SEL and the 22 nuggets in stock at 45p at the place with the SEL for those, but neither will come into the stores that currently don't have the SELs for them. I did find my one pack of Birds Eye 42 Dippers in the M where I first had the SEL, after many weeks of no stock.

    Not seen it mentioned but O2 priority has free cinema tickets to see Mary and the Witches flower.

    It's limited Odeon cinemas...

    Not read small print as to whether it includes free water and popcorn like the last O2 offer.

    Yes, wifi is working, just tested it by opening a new website. No dots on the right of mine, I have always in the past used the way below.


    Tried, as that is how I usually do it, but it is saying it is unable to do it. 2 days now, its going to get rather annoying and confusing



    And where the bladdy hell do you think you've been all this time without a passout??!! People have been concerned

    If they wont remove, the only thing I can think of is to screenshot all your vouchers then you can just delete as you go.

    Have just made myself feel sick

    Opened a box of Turkish delight that Mr TS bought me for xmas and have eaten about 8 pieces without stopping.

    And when did they stop doing the little wooden forks in the boxes to stop you getting the icing sugar all over your fingers?

    That's good to know Seren, I didn't know Robinsons did cordials now.

    The coca cola life, the one in the green bottles had Stevia I think, not sure if it's still around don't remember seeing it in the supermarkets lately.

    I would still rather have good old sugar if I'm honest, according to the many comments on Ribena FB page, among the complaints, people are recommending Rocks Organic and some are saying Waitrose still does high juice without sugar but I don't know how accurate that info is as I'm sure DD1 said she couldn't find any in her local, not checked myself.

    I got the last old recipe Ribena bottles from my local Ts couple days ago, the smaller bottles I got before had some offer on the label and I noticed that these 2 bottles had the same label mixed in with all the others.

    I had a shock that not only has my coke gone up in price they have made the bottles smaller. I am kicking myself for not stocking up before the sugar tax came in. But unfortunately it's one of those things that I don't like to keep a stash of as I would drink a lot more than I should. I just buy the odd bottle when I really fancy some. I'm not fussy pepsi or coke as long as it's full of sugar....

    Izzy I have read somewhere that some people have had luck in places like Home Bargains and B&M for the old recipe.

    I hope you find a decent offer, vaguely think I read that small 500ml bottles were pre sugar tax prices in one of the discount stores, not sure if that size would be any good for you and sorry can't remember which store it was.
