    Default Oh Dear Iceland

    Iceland's chicken tikka Yorkshire pudding will make you sad

    It’s a cruel world we live in (Picture: Iceland) Iceland have launched a ready meal (a sad, lonely ready meal for one, at that) that combines the comfort of a Yorkshire pudding, usually reserved for roast dinners and gravy, with an Indian curry. The frozen meal, which retails at just £1, has…

    Read the title and had serious anxiety. Thought it was going to say that bloody volcano has erupted again and I would be stuck in Thailand!
    I wonder if anyone will actually buy this. I know my mother has recently got obsessed with Iceland. They sell all manner of weird combinations that I can only guess are aimed at pregnant women's cravings.

    Looks like a natural combination of 2 of Britain's great national dishes.

    How did it taste, Col?

    Defo on the list to try the next time I am in there.


    Hardly unexpected though, at some point someone was going to do it, after all Yorkshire's have been having all sorts of concoctions put in them for years, why not a ruby.

    Don't knock it until you have tried it because there are some great bargains to be had in Iceland, and not all crap stuff either.

    I must admit, I don't think I've been in there for a couple of years but I did used to buy quite a lot of stuff there until it became too expensive! Farm Foods and Heron Foods for me these days! Plus Aldi and Lidl for the rest - and B & M Bargains for me beer!

    I really enjoyed that little series they did about Iceland, very interesting. The big boss is a one-off.

    I am not into Indian food so have not tried it, my idea of a yorkshire pud filling is more like a UK roast especially beef

    Do some nice (well I think so) Indian meals, Chicken Jafrazi, Chicken Tikka etc. for £1 - £1.50. Does me for a meal and beats paying £8-10 for a take-away.

    I was in my local Iceland today - I picked up a stock of delicious mushy peas to take with me next week for the in-laws in Korat.

    They're rather partial to the "Harry Ramsden" brand which Iceland stocks - I've taught them to appreciate quality! A bargain at £1 for 3 tins. The local Waitrose charges 50p a tin! Thankfully I now have a 42kg baggage allowance with Emirates. Yum!

    Mushy peas are so easy to do yourself and with the cost of them in Thailand it's a good idea. The hardest bit is getting the dried peas. I make loads at a time and freeze what I don't use, costs about 50 baht and you get about 15 portions.

    The Korat in-laws seem to have a particular predilection for the "Harry Ramsden" brand over the DIY mushy pea route. And who am I to deprive them of one of the pleasures and treasures to be found in my local Iceland store...

    ...it also earns me loads of brownie points too

    Maybe Iceland should open a store in Thailand?
