#36 FOOD NEWS: Costa v’s Poundland!

They say (whoever ‘they’ are), we’re shopping around more for our weekly food shop to find the best deals. With that in mind I thought I’d do this for my somewhat Britalian treat.

I love a little sit-down in Costa with a large cappuccino and the Victoria sponge-style Mini lemon and raspberry cake.

At £2.65 for the cappuccino and £2.50 for the cake, this *cough, cough* little treat is more of a whacking great, big, fat indulgence. So I took a hop, skip and a jump over to neighbouring Poundland. Oh my! Here’s what a found!

1 Victoria sponge cake (enough to serve at least 6!) for er…. £1

12 sachets of instant cappuccino for yes you’ve guessed it … £1

CAKE -17p per serving
COFFEE – 8p per serving
TOTAL – 25p per serving

That’s 20 Poundland cups of coffee and 20 slices of cake for my £5.15!!!

I think this could be the start of a beautiful friendship… tinned tomatoes, McVities Cheddars, Jayne Asher cake-pop holders, cupcake boxes, cake boards, *high visibility vests … Hhumm perhaps I should get back to Costa before I spend £10 on stuff I don’t need!
