Sudden Chicken Bovril Shortage....

My local Sainsbury's and Tesco (both quite large stores) have BOTH suddenly stopped stocking chicken bovril.

My C checked her Tesco (she lives quite a bit away) where she normally gets hers and they didn't have it either.

I wonder if they're discontinuing it??? I'm going to check a few more stores around me but I'll be bummed if I can't get it anymore. :sigh:

the asda near me no longer sells chicken bovril nor the one near my b/f mums. i got my last lot in tesco but bought 3 jars as the shelf edge label said it was being discontinued and i havent found it anywhere since. i also cant get vecon anywhere its a nightmare
you wonder what makes them discontinue some stuff dont ya!!! x
if i can find any im going to buy the whole shelf n become a chicken bovril dealer lol .. i cant find it in Tesco or Asda so looks like a jolly to morrisons is on the cards
Guess I'll pop out to Morrison's now!


Where's Skinny Minnie?
You can try the online stores or Holland & Barrett for vecon.
The beef bovril was recalled recently due to a salmonella scare - don't know anything about chicken though. The Sainsbury's by me has it but only the small jars which works out more expensive (I like to make soups).


Just follow the plan
I just use a stock cube and syn it, I only use 1 stock cube which is 1 syn for the whole pan of soup.

Thanks flipflop, that might be a better idea for me. Miles cheaper than bovril and I usually have spare syns - plus I do prefer the soup done with a chicken oxo, I find bovril a bit salty. Think I'm being too cautious trying to make everything syn free.
Morrison's had TONS of it! Woohoo!
I bought 3 for me and 3 for my C (i'm such a swot! hahaha)

They had loads and no sign saying discontinued so I didn't buy 50 jars of it!
