In the shops now! Double means trouble for choc chip cookies

20 August 2009

So there's the price for a single pack of Maryland cookies at Tesco in Axminster. And there's the price for a twin pack of the same cookies. Not only is it more expensive, but the twin pack appears to be normally over three times the price of a single pack. Which is the special offer again?

Good job, Tesco team - your unique understanding of mathematics could probably solve the global recession - if only they'd talk to you, and not those so-called "financial experts". The fools. Thanks to BW reader Gavin for the spot - your label lapses please, to [email protected]

    £1.48 does not equal "over three times the price of two single packs" (88p). Yes they are dunces but so are you, dunce.

    this is also true of tesco value garlic bread, 2 x single = less than the double pack

    Article says: "Not only is it more expensive, but the twin pack appears to be normally over three times the price of two single packs. Which is the special offer again?" "twin pack" = £1 or £1.48 normally. "two single packs" = 44p x 2 = 88p Article says £1.48 is over 3 times the price of 88p Please tell me which calculator you used.

    If any of you donkeys would look at the image a little closer, you'd see that the labels are for 2 different products. This article is basically saying "Look - there's 2 completely different things..... WITH DIFFERENT PRICES!!!!! What's more...... ONE OF THEM'S MORE EXPENSIVE!!!" Open your eyes, losers.

    I think you guys are milking it a bit, Supermarket misprices are really not THAT funny.

    I don't see the problem anyway. If you are crap at maths, you pay more. So Tesco are actually helping today's youngsters by saving them money if they learn maths. What nice, kind, altruistic people they are.
