As usual, Tesco special offers should be taken with a pinch, or punch, of salt. Regular reader Janet gets in touch to say:
I was in Tesco last week. I have always bought 4 packs of Ryvita crackers per week which were 88 cent per pack last week. The price is now €2.59 per pack. The manager stood closeby so I went to him to query the price hike. He said they were on special last week. I told him I buy them every week and since the change before Christmas they have always been that price. He abruptly turned and said ”well that’s the price of them now”. Needless to say, I went to Dunnes and got them for 99 cent per pack. My advice to anyone is check the prices of goods in Tesco as they are on the rise in a big way.
Is Janet making a fuss over nothing, or have you noticed price rises in Tesco?

- Irish baby plum tomatoes (250g) – reduced from €2.39 to €1.79
