I'm getting major deja vu from making this thread, so if I'd made it before, soz!

Anyways, so our Tesco's started a Brit Invasion of the US an according to the good people (lulz) of America (Inc Sunny), it's a loada shite basically.
So let us all compare what we feel think of the great Tesco an their Value beans!

nah, i've only had Tesco in Europe, but here's the scary part:

"Tesco PLC today announces that it intends to enter the United States through the development of a new convenience format, beginning on the West Coast in 2007."

oh nos!

but seriously, USians, Tesco is the worst of the worst. especially their generic brand. their orange juice tastes like cleaning products. their soap will strip your skin off. i shudder at the thought of what their milk must be like, but i've never had the courage to try it.

be very afraid, West Coast!

Their milk's fine, but only cause it's the local farms that do that an all Tesco do is put their name on an sell it on. But their branded food isn;t that nice. The only think of theirs I like is the Tesco Value meatballs an thats just cause it's a dead cheap snack an takes 60secs to make.

I quite like Tesco products. The "value" product range of any supermarket is pretty bad,but Tesco's regular products are OK, and cheaper than most supermarkets'. Though I try and shop at independent stores when I can.

Tesco had these Tesco brand chocolate biscuits. I haven't seen them in years, but Jesus Christ they made amazing stoner munch.

I actually don't mind Tesco's own at all. I'll say this, it's a damn sight better than Morrison's and Asda's - I know of this 'cos both are closer to me than a Tesco. It really says something when you're out to buy some biscuits, and you'll pass -two- supermarkets to go to a fuppin' Tesco.
