A BARGAIN hunter walked out of Marks and Spencer with a roast dinner staple so cheap that foodies have dubbed it a “real bargain”.
Nicola Mansfield was so pleased with her food find that she went back and bought two more.

Posting in Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, she revealed that she picked up a tub of Bisto Chicken Gravy Granules for £3.
But when she got to the till, the tub scanned for 30p.
Nicola went back to the shelf in the Rayleigh, Essex store and nabbed two more tubs.
She posted a picture of the receipt to prove the first tub wasn’t just a glitch.
Shoppers have nabbed the roast dinner find a “real bargain” and are rushing to their local store to see if it’s a nationwide price.
“Real bargain, well done,” someone commented on her post.
“Pop them in the safe when you get home!” another joked.
One woman told her mate to “get her shoes on” and joked that she’d be at M&S’ “door waiting on it opening” to nab tubs of the gravy.
According to Lisa Bailey, Bisto’s chicken gravy is 30p in the retailer’s Horsham, Sussex store too.
Foodies were left questioning why food items can randomly scan at lower prices when they reach the till.
“I’m guessing someone missed a 0 when they set the price on the system,” Nicola theorised.
“So instead of £3.00, it was 30p.”
Others thought it could be a secret sale, or a discount that the product labels under products in supermarkets haven’t changed to reflect yet.
Savvy shopper Andy Fox was left thrilled when shopping in his local discount store and spotted the reduced TV aerial.
