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!

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.
