Next week Taste and Tell returns and this time around, there’s an all-new healthy treat available for our colleague members. 

You’ll be able to pick up a free healthy ready meal from Monday 10 January to Sunday 16 January. With every meal boasting fresh ingredients and a series of health benefits, the range is a great way of staying on top of your health goals whatever they may be. And with seven delicious options to choose from, there’s something for just about everyone. 

So, what’s included in the line-up? 

  • Pesto Cheese Ravioli (V) – in a basil pesto sauce with pumpkin seeds, sun-dried tomatoes and yellow peppers. The dish counts as two of your five a day and is just 401 calories. 
  • Chicken and Chorizo Jambalaya – cooked in a mild spiced tomato sauce with a spicy brown rice mix, red peppers and spinach. It’s a source of high protein and is one of your five a day too. 
  • Katsu Chicken Curry – mild and creamy with butternut squash, sugar snap peas, red peppers and a black and brown rice mix. The curry’s a fantastic source of fibre and is 415 calories per pack. 
  • Beef Singapore Style Noodles – in a rich soy and ginger sauce with carrot, red pepper and pak choi. It’s also 318 calories and a source of high protein and fibre too.
  • Beef Lasagne – minced beef in a rich tomato and red wine sauce with pasta, bechamel sauce and cheese. It’s one of your five day and 368 calories per meal.
  • Chicken Tikka Massala with Lentil Rice – marinated chicken breast pieces in a creamy tikka sauce, served with a pilau rice and spiced lentil mix. Just 394 calories per meal and one of your five a day.
  • Cottage Pie with Root Vegetable Mash – minced beef with onions, carrots and lentils in a rich sauce topped with root vegetable mash. It’s also high in protein and is a low 326 calories.

  1. I got the chicken tikka masala with lentil pilau rice. Hubby had it and said the rice was nice(he likes lentils anyhow) but the tikka a bit bland. Put them both together for a bit of taste and it was ok

  2. I tried the Chicken Tikka Curry with Lentil Rice. It was really flavoursome and made a lovely meal while also feeling fairly healthy. Thank you for the opportunity to try it!

  3. Tried the lasagne. Disappointing . The cheese was tasteless ( for me at least) and the tomato sauce too thin. Sorry.

  4. I had the chicken tikka masala and was pleasantly surprised how tasty it was as I was expecting it to be bland. Spicy but not hot with sufficient chicken pieces and liked the lentil rice which I hadn’t tried before. Big thumbs up!!

  5. Have tried the chicken tikka masala it was nice and tasty but can do with a bit more spice

  6. What happens if we do not sell these in our store.

    • Hi Mechele, I am sorry to hear your store doesn’t stock these, we do try and pick products with a high DOD, hopefully another store nearby will have these in stock for you to enjoy.

  7. Hiya the free meal is not appearing on my co-op app? Any idea how I can get it?.

    • it wont appear but if you scan your card it will take money off

    • Hi Paula, the Taste & Tell offers don’t show on the app, all you have to do is scan the product and your membership card at the till and the cost will be deducted from your total.

    • It doesn’t come up on the app preloaded to your membership card

    • From my understanding it doesn’t appear as an offer within the app. It is added to your card automatically. They’ve done ones like this before and it will show up on your reciept afterwards.

    • Hi, it won’t appear in the app. You just need to scan your membership card and the value of the meal will be deducted from the balance.

  8. Can we have a vegan option please?

    • Hi Kathryn, unfortunately this range does not include a vegan option at the moment, we would have loved to include some of the GRO Range but we already have the fantastic 25% off the whole GRO range this week. Keep an eye out for future Taste & Tell that will have lots of yummy vegan options.

  9. Had the Singapore noodles with beef …overall I liked the product a tad too much ginger for my personal liking ..and in my opinion lacked other seasonings ..that said I’m sure most will enjoy this product

  10. Only one veggie option – and it wasn’t available in my local store. Didn’t seem to be stocked at all actually??

  11. Hi, This is a great initiative. It would have been super if there was a Vegan option too, particularly during Veganuary.

    • Hi Neil, we would have loved to add some of the GRO range to this Taste and Tell but there is already a fantastic 25% off the GRO range this week, don’t worry though we have lots of great Taste & Tell offers planned that include GRO and other vegan options.

  12. why is there no vegan option please ?

    • Hi Rosemary, Thank you for your message, unfortunately this range doesn’t yet have a vegan option yet. We would have absolutely loved to add a GRO item to this Taste & Tell offer but with there already being a fantastic 25% discount on this GRO range this week we were unable to add this to the Taste & Tell option as well. Don’t worry though we have lots of great offers for Taste & Tell planned for the future that include GRO and other vegan options.

  13. Thank you for healthy treats from Co-op 😊
