    Please Help, Once & for all - IS Tesco's Everyday Value Irish Stew Free or not!?

    Help.

    I remember a while ago someone stated that Tesco Irish Stew (in a can) was free. However, in Tesco.. there are two kinds. There is the first one 'Tesco Irish Stew' & the second is their 'Tesco Everyday Value Irish Stew' - Are ANY of these free? I'm following Slimming World (EE) & would love to know as I have a few tins leftover of the 'EVERYDAY Irish Stew' - I was eating it a while ago, assuming it was free, lol. Help! Here's some more info on both:

    'Tesco Irish Stew'


    Ingredients: Vegetables (34%),Mutton (30%) ,Water ,Wheat Flour ,Pearl Barley ,Salt ,Modified Maize Starch ,Lamb Stock ,Carrot ,Onion ,Mushroom ,White Pepper,Carrot Juice ,Black Pepper ,Vegetables in varying proportions: Carrot ,Onion ,Peas ,Potato (Sulphites).
    Typical Values 100g contains Half of a can (200g) contains
    Energy 75kcal 150kcal
    Protein 7.7g 15.4g
    Carbohydrate 6.5g 13.0g
    Sugars 1.3g 2.6g
    Fat 1.7g 3.4g
    Saturates 0.7g 1.4g
    Fibre 1.3g 2.6g
    Salt 0.8g 1.6g


    'Tesco EVERYDAY VALUE Irish Stew'


    Ingredients: Water,Potato (17%) ,Carrot (15%) ,Lamb (11%) ,Garden Peas (3.5%) ,Tomato Purée ,Modified Maize Starch ,Wheat Flour ,Lamb Fat ,Salt,Flavouring,Colour (Caramelised Sugar Syrup) ,White Pepper.

    Typical Values 100g contains Half of a can (196g) contains
    Energy 65kcal 125kcal
    Protein 1.9g 3.7g
    Carbohydrate 5.7g 11.2g
    Sugars 1.2g 2.4g
    Fat 3.4g 6.7g
    Saturates 1.5g 2.9g
    Mono Unsaturates 1.3g 2.5g

    Fibre 0.8g 1.6g
    Sodium* 0.3g 0.5g
    *Salt Equivalent 0.6g 1.2g


    They both look pretty similar & the cheaper one (everyday value) seems to be less calories.. but is it free, yay or nay!? I used to have the SW app to be able to check everything, but since I'm doing it at home now, I can't check! So could someone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE once & for all, settle this! Thanks in advance!

    Look at the ingredients in both of them. Irish stew one may have more calories but it is better for you. The everyday one has double the fat.

    That free one would be handy to have in for those "need something quick" times (especially in the winter). Could always bung a steam fresh veg in the microwave and add it to the pan too - more sf!!
