    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

    '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.

    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.
    Started Paleo/Primal Apr 2012 at 9st 9lbs.Got down to 8st 4lbs October 2012 and have been maintaining between 8st 4lbs-8st 7lbs since.


    If you want it enough you won't keep finding excuses to not do it.
