    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:

    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!

    & yes I know it's crappy food but we all have those emergency 'Go To' foods in our cupboards & this one happens to be mine!! I do make my own stew too (which we call lobsgows in Wales) but these are for my lazy days.. Thanks again!

    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!!

    The normal Irish Stew 400g is 4.1/2 syns.

    Sorry to be a party pooper.
