    Big Bags of 3KG Conchiglie Pasta Shells - Does Anywhere Sell Them? 9th Nov 18 at 8:33 PM
    Does anyone know where to get them? I know they do the Penne 3KG bags and fusilli 3KG but does anywhere do Conchiglie pasta shells 3KG bags?

    Thanks

    I've noticed that Sainsbury's have 3kg bags of pasta in store, not sure if that includes conchiglie, an online search suggests not.

    Tesco do a 1kg bag: https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/254878516

    Amazon.co.uk do them but their price is ridiculous !

    12.38 compared to a 3KG bag of Fusilli in Tesco which is 2.80!

    I appreciate Chef Larder might be this big premium brand but for almost a 10 difference it seems a massive increase for basically the same product but in a different shape !

    I thought all pasta was made from the same stuff, just different shapes.

    I've found the most cost-effective way t buy pasta is to look at the price per 100g, generally Lidl is competitive. Don't get hung up on the idea large bag is the best buy, frequently it isn't.
