One savvy shopper was left stunned when she spotted the cheap buys when browsing the shelves in her local M&S.

Thrilled with her finds, Victoria Carrick took to social media to alert other shoppers.

Posting on Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, a private Facebook group with 2.4 million members, Victoria shared a picture of her buys and penned: “M&S (Cardiff) are selling these off at 50p per bag instead of £2.”

Victoria bought two bags of the reduced treats and beamed: “They are lovely.”

Ways to save money on your food shop

THERE are plenty of ways to save on your grocery shop.

You can look out for yellow or red stickers on products, which show when they’ve been reduced.

If the food is fresh, you’ll have to eat it quickly or freeze it for another time.

Making a list should also save you money, as you’ll be less likely to make any rash purchases when you get to the supermarket.

Going own brand can be one easy way to save hundreds of pounds a year on your food bills too.

This means ditching “finest” or “luxury” products and instead going for “own” or value” type of lines.

Plenty of supermarkets run wonky veg and fruit schemes where you can get cheap prices if they’re misshapen or imperfect.

For example, Lidl runs its Waste Not scheme, offering boxes of 5kg of fruit and vegetables for just £1.50.

If you’re on a low income and a parent, you may be able to get up to £442 a year in Healthy Start vouchers to use at the supermarket too.

Plus, many councils offer supermarket vouchers as part of the Household Support Fund.

At the same time, another M&S shopper wrote: “They are yummy. I paid £1 for a bag on Saturday.” 

Someone else shared: “Got two bags today.”
