Do you enjoy meal deals? Do you often get meal deals? What is your favourite meal deal?

Meal deals are often a staple of British life. For a reasonable £3 you can get a sandwich and a packet of crisps and a drink which will fill you up for lunch and is extremely convinient when you forget to bring your lunch in or are travelling.

Do other countries have meal deals sold by supermarkets and shops? What is in your meal deal? Do you just eat burgers and tacos all the time in America for lunch? What is a nice lunch for people in other cultures and countries?

Usually less than 10 bucks with a can of soft drink

Never really seen them as being a big thing here. Sandwich shops might have some sort of deal going most times, but then sandwich shops aren't really that big here either.

We're the kind of people who bring a packed lunch everywhere we go, and if we forget it, we go to the supermarket, get the stuff to make a packed lunch and then make a packed lunch

In 'poor struggling student' mode, the equivalent of 85 cents or so for a shawarma and a drink is a Godsend. Best of all it's usually clean.

I'm no penny saver, just give me a meal.

I'm hungry now, in fact. Might pick up some tacos since, as usual, we've got nothing to eat at the house.

I'm going to make such a successful living when I start living on my own. :')

i used to get them every now and then, what i preferred doing though was going into the local butchers shop where they sell all sorts of hot pastries and getting a couple of sausage rolls or something and then a drink from the corner shop cause the drinks were cheaper there and they had better selection, they also did huge bacon baguettes, not exactly healthy but whatever

I have a long-standing relationship with those bacon and egg sandwiches. They taste so good, but I can feel my arteries clogging with every bite. But they're so good.

The shop at my work does a decent meal deal. Chicken and Chorizo pasty, bottle of Coke and a Twix for £3.85.
My old signature was too long. Have a daisy.

I'm a fan of the wraps that have a chicken based play-doh like substance that is good and terrible at the same time. I'm 90% sure it will be looked back on as the predecessor of soylent green.

As a future ingredient in Sainsbury's soylent green wraps, I figure it might benefit me to learn a thing or two about food.

Fanta was great until they reduced the amount of fizz in it. Now it tastes like slightly bubbly vomit.

Does anyone remember when that become a thing? Soft drink companies making drinks that were "less fizzy" so you could supposedly drink them faster? What a fucking crap idea that was.

Why would you want a fizzy drink to be less fizzy?

It makes the burp way less impressive, and that's the only reason to drink them fast.

Maybe they can save like 0.001g of aluminium from each can because it doesn't have to be as strong?

Fanta is worse than Coke Zero.

I don't know why people choose to drink Coke Zero.

Don't even get me started on 1.75 litre bottles.
#31
But every day there's something in the news about there being a shitton of CO2 being produced over and above our fizzy drink needs. Surely they should be making drinks more fizzy, not less.

Coca Cola causes climate change, people.

I've come to the conclusion that it's self-loathing.

Have you tried Irn Bru Xtra btw?

The few times I do drink soft drinks, I go for the 'regular' version. All the stuff with other sweeteners tastes different/weird.

Because they taste better, and not everyone hates themselves enough to choose diet.

Are soft drinks with "30% Less Sugar" popular overseas?

We have a heap of them over here now, the worst of which is "Coke Life" which tastes like what I imagine bong water to taste like.

I drink sugar free drinks for the diabeetus factor, and since I was pretty much raised on a sugar free diet, I prefer the taste now anyway, but I see why some people like the sugary shit.

There must be a lot of denial involved too because people insist it tastes the same as regular Coke. If those people genuinely believe that then I really do worry for them. Troubling times.

I haven't tried it yet but I can't say I've thought much of Irn Bru variants in the past. The fiery one was okay but I don't miss it.

It's not worth trying, tbh. It kind of tastes like supermarket own brand diet Irn Bru.

Yeah, you see that a lot here as well.

Honestly, it's like having sex with a hole in the mattress, but instead of sticking it in all the way, you leave out 30% of your penis in an effort to feel 30% less guilty.
