Morrisons Is Selling Freshly-Baked Steak Pies For Just 50p
What's better than a freshly-baked chunky steak pie? A freshly-baked chunky steak pie that only costs 50p, of course! But surely, you're thinking, it's impossible to find such a miraculous deal in 2020. Well, no, it isn't.
To celebrate National Pie Week, for seven days supermarket chain Morrisons is selling those delicious pies for just half a quid. Although two of those seven days have already passed, so time is running out.
The last time, on average, that pies would have cost that much was back in 1998. So in a way, it's like getting a time machine back to a happier, kinder, warmer and cheaper world.
The average price of a pint of lager, for example, was just £1.86, and the average UK house price was £53,973, compared to more than £200,000 today. Take us back.
The 50p price tag is a 60 percent reduction of the usual price of the pies, which are made with 100 percent British beef and are freshly baked in-store each day - the thought of which is making us exceedingly hungry as we type.

The offer runs until Sunday this week and is available in the majority of Morrisons stores. Steven Halford, the company's pie buyer - which pretty much sounds like the best job in the world - said: "What better way to celebrate British Pie Week than with an ultimate chunky steak pie - for just 50p."
Honestly, we can't think of one.
This is not the first time that the supermarket - which spent £3 billion on a takeover of Safeway Group back in 2004 - have defied inflation and modern prices.
In 2018, it offered the same promotion for British Pie Week, which went down an absolute treat. Because of course it did. Because pies are delicious - and even more delicious when they're cheap. Nom, and indeed, nom.
Of course, if you're a vegetarian, then none of this will be particularly exciting news for you, but you could always pop down to Greggs to indulge in one of their vegan sausage rolls. No, it's not the same thing as a pie, but it's still very, very tasty.
