Tesco has launched a new premium £5 meal deal

Tesco has launched a new premium £5 meal deal

The new meal deal will have more options for hungry shoppers

Tesco's meal deals have long been a go-to for Brits looking to pick up a quick and cheap lunch on their work breaks.

But now there's set to be a major shake-up, with the meal deal range expanding.

The supermarket chain has now announced a 'Premium Meal Deal' to sit alongside the standard meal deal in shops.

The new range will set you back £5 and will include a wider variety of items, including meals from brands such as itsu, YO! Sushi, Pollen and Grace, in addition to items from the Tesco Finest range.

Alessandra Bellini, Tesco's Chief Customer Officer, said: "We know that our Tesco Meal Deal is hugely popular with our customers, and is a lunchtime staple for millions of people day in, day out.

"But sometimes you want to treat yourself to something a little special, and the new Premium Meal Deal gives our shoppers the opportunity to upgrade their usual lunch choices.

"Featuring a wide range of mains including new Finest and Wicked Kitchen sandwiches and salads, as well as options from itsu, YO! Sushi and Pollen & Grace, there are over four million combinations to be tried.

“What’s more, at only £5 for the full meal, Clubcard members really can enjoy gourmet on the go."

Shoppers with a Tesco Clubcard will find their meal deals to be £3.74 cheaper than they would be if they had bought each item individually.

There are over 33 main meal choices on offer through this new line, including exciting new flavours such as Tesco Finest Roast Beef, West Country Cheddar & Truffle Mayo Tiger Roll, the Tesco Finest Chicken & N'duja Wrap and the YO! Rainbow Salmon Poke.

In addition to the mains, customers opting for premium are still able to buy drinks and snacks that would have accompanied the standard Meal Deal.

This could see shoppers knocking back drink favourites such as Oasis and Coca-Cola, or treating themselves to a packet of Walkers crisps or a bar of Cadbury's chocolate.

The Tesco Premium Meal Deal is currently available in 1,200 stores around the country for £5 per head with a Clubcard or £5.50 without.

The standard Tesco Meal Deal remains £3.40, which was an increase of 40p from its original price.

In October 2022, the price rose from its original price of £3 after ten years.

At the time, a spokesperson for the supermarket said: "Clubcard members will pay just £3.40 for a main, snack and drink, making our meal deal an ideal way to grab a great value lunch on-the-go."
