Tesco Fruit & Veg

I’m the first to admit, I’m a recent Aldi convert (sorry Tesco). However, having a £2 voucher from The Orchard at Tesco for fruit and veg, encouraged me to try for free from Tesco this week. I bought a bag of pepper stir fry, an aubergine and a pack of 3 peppers. A pretty standard part of my weekly vegetable purchases. There was a good selection in each area of what I was looking for, and each item was easy to find. The dates on the items were good, however I intended to eat the stir fry over the next 2 days anyway, and do not bother too much about dates on other fresh vegetables. Eat until mouldy.
I was pleased to see that the packaged peppers had a variety of combinations available, therefore I could avoid buying my least favourite colour. I eat peppers regularly and so 3 for 99p is very good value for me. They are regularly roasted in my household and accompany a variety of meals. Aubergine was firm and a good size. Both the aubergine and the peppers are still fresh 5 days on – as evidenced in the photo!
The only reason that my review is 4 stars instead of 5, is the lack of peppers in the stir fry! Generally this would not be a problem but I feel it is a stumbling block when it is advertised as a mixed pepper stir fry! It is a good amount of stir fry for 2 in one sitting, but also keeps well when splitting it over two days.
