After taking her daughter to an Asda Café for a treat, one mum is 'furious' saying they served her daughter chips that smelled and tasted of 'rotting horse manure'.

The Essex mum vented her anger on Facebook, and wished to remain anonymous after the failed trip with her daughter, 'P'.

She took the little one out for a meal in the Asda Café in Clacton-on-Sea, however when P went to bite a chip she said it 'tasted like horse poo'. Sorry if you're eating while reading this.

The angry parent said the chip was 'vulgar' and agreed with her daughter that it smelled like 'rotting horse manure'.

She continued saying the unsavoury lunch made her feel 'sick to her stomach'.

Now worried, she didn't want to let her daughter finish the meal.

Complaining on Facebook, she wrote: "Do not eat at Asda in Clacton. Ordered P chips today, she bit into one & said 'erghh Mummy it tastes like horse poo!'

"I smelt it & no word of a lie, it was VULGAR & smelt like ROTTING HORSE MANURE! Obviously, I told them & the lad agreed it smelled horrid, & they refunded me but I am FURIOUS they could even let something like that happen & they weren't even apologetic in the slightest!

“Makes me feel sick to my stomach! Never mind my poor Daughter who actually put it in her mouth!”

As well as the smelly chips, the mum also had a few other issues with the café.

She was annoyed by the limited range on offer, and the fact that the pick 'n' mix was pre-made.

She continued: "Not to mention the shambles of the café having a menu & being told 'most things on it we don't actually serve'.

“The woman working there was also pre-making the pick n mix kids lunch bags because 'she's sick of customers throwing in anything they want' & 'I bet the kids will whinge that they don't like certain bits'...

"Well what's the point of trying to help parents with 'kids eat for £1' when they can't actually choose what they want? Defeats the purpose, surely. The whole café is a shambles".

The deal allows kids to eat for £1 at any time of the day in Asda cafes.

The supermarket introduced the offer to help families who might be struggling with the cost of living crisis. It's valid during the summer holidays.

The angry mum was offered a refund, however was upset that staff didn't apologise following the mistake.

An Asda spokesperson told LADbible: "We are sorry that [the customer] was unhappy with the kids eat for £1 meal in our café and have refunded this purchase. Thousands of children across the UK have already enjoyed the meal offer since it was launched earlier this week and we have not received any other complaints like this."
