No longer the excellent value item it once was.
Nothing wrong with the product itself - it makes a pretty tasty meal with some rice and a side salad, but as others have said, to raise the price of something that used to be in the Everyday Value range by a whopping 30% is inexcusable. This is just going to force those of us on a low income to shop at Aldi and Lidl.
Why raise the price of the food poor people buy by 30%? Why not raise the price of luxury food by 1%? Same outcome. Poor people are experiencing enormous food price inflation because of these practices.
Large price rise
Recent massive price rise of over 33% means this is no longer the good value it used to be. Why are so many Stockwell labels being increased substantially in price?
It's just okay.

Had this with jacket potatoes last week - delicious!
Better, and under half the price
This is the SAME as the Tesco branded product BUT under half the price. Want the extra spicy version? Just add a few drops of cayenne pepper / Louisiana hot sauce, or some chopped jalapenos and it will surpass the Tesco's own label.
A very good cheap qwick meal , just add jacket pot
A very good cheap qwick meal , just add jacket potato etc a bit off grated cheese as good any tinned chilli ive ever tried, and for 59p a tin
I honestly wasn't looking forward to eating it but money is tight and I needed some very cheap meals, sick of meal replacement shakes. I ate it on its own and it was surprisingly very nice. I would probably add more kidney beans but this is genuinely a tasty, cheap chilli.
A good backstop for the money
I like a good chilli and usually would cook it myself, but I thought a couple of cans in stock for quick meals might be worth a try. FOR THE PRICE it's reasonably good, with filling ingredients and not an overwhelming amount of sauce. My main issue is the very bitter - bordering on burnt - flavour. I can't really identify what causes the unpleasant aftertaste, but it's made better if I add a couple of extra ingredients to balance it out. Worth having as a backstop, but definitely no substitute for a home cook!
