What your meal deal says about you
Ahh, modest meal deal – your workweek is even complete if you don’t go to the aisles of your chosen supermarket at least once Monday-Friday and peruse the shelves Delicious ready-to-go to get you through to 5 p.m. ? The answer is not difficult.
While the jury has not yet determined which supermarket has the best Meal deal offers, perhaps most controversially, are the three sacred choices you must make in choosing your chosen meal, snack, and beverage. It’s stressful stuff.
The Team Zoella office may have seen some *things* in its time, but nothing compares to the meal deal combos of the people who work there. Time to explore our meal deal options really talk about us, and who needs to look closely in the mirror before contaminating this place with tuna again – an al desko crime if we’ve ever smelled it once.
Egg and watercress bread | Sensations Sweet Chilli Crisps | Lipton Peach Tea
Eggs and watercress is an interesting option for ages under 60 and should therefore be reconsidered at the nearest opportunity, even more if it is eaten in a communal space, in which case, please open the window for you to be the villain. The snack selection is the best part of this meal deal, with Sensations Sweet Chilli said to appear in the category of the top 5 available crunchy choices – light redemption. Have you finished with Peach Iced Tea? It’s bland. To conclude, this meal deal is an eclectic mix and not in a good way. Its confusing combination of flavors is less than inspiring, and the combination of egg and watercress plus iced tea is conjuring up images of afternoon tea at extended families. Not likely to inspire a great afternoon after your lunch break, let’s put it that way.
Tuna Mayo Sandwich | Crispy Salt and Vinegar | Effervescent water
Take a break from the tuna mayo and re-evaluate our selections. Unless traveling alone and far, far from the desk area, you can also expect an email from human resources to be waiting for you in your inbox as this is a forbidden office. In its final moments of revenge, this tuna was simply placed on the shelf waiting let the Hulk get rid of its stench containing cardboard, and you let it. Shame on you.
On a lighter note? Salt and vinegar deep fried. A pretty standard but error-free pick and maybe even +1 here to get you out of the minus range – very good. The combination of fish, salt, and vinegar suggests you’re craving some beach time, and it’s really a blessing if a seagull takes a whole lot from you as you walk down – still not past the tuna.
Just like everything going, we end up with carbonated water – is there even any comment requested? Static TV in a bottle, consider this your final warning from the Tesco Meal Deal Gods.
Chicken & Bacon Sandwich (Brown Bread) | Innocent ‘Energize’ smoothie | Proper lentils
A strong combination here, with an emphasis on brown bread and lentil chips suggesting health, is a top priority, which we cannot criticize. First up is the classic chicken, bacon and mayo sandwiches and sandwiches – someone has got the job done and that person is you. An affordable, filling option that’s guaranteed to satisfy your 2 p.m. cravings, leaving portions delicious and satisfying. Things get a little tricky when it comes to snack choices – do lentils even count as crisps? The barbecue flavor is a light innovation that complements your sandwich beautifully, but next time try some classic Walkers and call it a day.
Finished on a high level here- premium Innocent smoothies. You have to consider yourself a brand hunter because refusing a £2 smoothie on a £3 meal deal would be simply blasphemous. Watch out for your white shirt while drinking with this bad boy, but you can sit back, relax and enjoy the sweet fruity flavors and succeed knowing you’ve improved your system. System at its fullest, you Meal Deal is your tycoon.
BLT Sandwich | Skip | Water
Did the definition dictionary of boredom just come out? Sorry that’s a bit harsh, but the BLT beyond this combination hardly gives us any reason to look forward to lunchtime – you can get water from the faucet to cry out loud. Bacon, lettuce and tomatoes are a solid combination and we won’t argue. Trustworthy and, quite frankly, a classic meal, crispy salads, soft bread and juicy tomatoes make for such a delicious option, that you probably won’t notice the generous servings of bacon. faintly considering the first letter of this acronym suggests it will be a major feature.
This is where things get a little less interesting. Bypass, although somewhat tasty, are definitely not among the top crunchy options on a dining deal, let’s put it that way – they’re basically air-flavored! How about BBQ Hula Hoops!? Doritos? Feeling? Even Cheese and Onion Walk? Skip faster than you can say ‘Tesco Clubcard’ and waste all your money as a result.
However, the last straw – a bottle of water. Skips looks more like a Michelin star meal than a regular bottle of still water. If we think glitter is bad, at least it has a little something, a little something about it, but water? It is an unfortunate offense.
Cheese and Pickles Sandwich | Hula Hoops | Diet Coke (must be cans!)
Fixing the sharp look, Little Miss Diet Coke Addict has arrived, Aspartame creeping through her veins.
A classic fusion meal deal – a triple threat if you will. All bases are covered here with these top lunchtime picks that celebrate the true potential of a meal deal. Cheese and pickles sound safe, but sometimes reliability is what you need on a Wednesday at 1:30 p.m., and you always know cheese and pickles can work – never give up the power of the weak.
Next and among other classics including Pride and Prejudice and The Peak of Wuthering, we have a pre-salted bag of Hula Hoops. Their satisfying crunch and finger-salty taste have saved many hangover moments over the years, and for this we will always be grateful. Wash it all down with a cold can of Diet Coke and feel the sweetness of the sugar that makes everything better in an instant. A midday slap Coke.
Tomato noodle soup | Munch Onions | Ribena
Did we accidentally pick up the wrong children’s lunch box? Objectively, this is not a bad choice, but the combination of tomatoes, pickled onions and black currants is somewhat bold, and at the same time the most childish dish. Pasta is a decent meal option that’s respectable and somewhat original, so we’d say +2 for the adventurous, however, it’s Monster Munch where we draw attention to the words. praise. Get yourself into the tuna quarantine room and enjoy your stinky snack there. Finally, Ribena is giving 10 year olds energy, and if you can live with that, so be it…
Chicken Caesar Wrap | Salt and Vinegar Plate | Redbull without sugar
A wrap person – someone who likes to be a little different. Chicken caesar is a strong choice, there’s no doubt about it, with crispy lettuce, creamy mayo, little bacon and soft tortillas, it’s pretty close to *chef’s kiss* in the world meal. It’s yet to be confirmed whether salt and vinegar complement these flavors, but either way the choice is a pretty bold one and so we respect that.
Washing it all down with Red Bull feels a bit like psychopath behavior, but choosing this meal deal is nothing if not self-confident, and for that reason, we don’t like.
