    Weirdest supermarket substitutions

    We had one today. Ordered lasagne, received chicken tikka masala.

    On a previous occasion, we ordered a quiche and got a pack of Brie.
    Scoots still says that Apr 2020 didn't mark the start of a new stock bull market.

    It is down to the picker-person, some of whom are not familiar with products. eg. They have never had sight lasagne or quiche in their lives.

      Four packets of smoked salmon, each subbed with 8 packets of fish cakes for a total of 64 fish cakes.

        Way back when Tesco first started online shopping I ordered some cat food in a shop. The substitute they sent was 6 cans of shaving foam!
        Just done a shop at Morrisons via Amazon and had 3 substitutes all very closely matched.

          Waitrose once tried to exchange the yums yums I'd ordered for Mr Kipling's chocolate slices.

            My subs are closely matched now. I suspect refusing to take tulip substitutions has helped.

                Dreamies (or cat crack, for the uninitiated) were subbed with doggy chew sticks. At least the driver laughed. Which is more than could be said for the cat...

                    We once had a pack of lamb steaks subbed for an entire lamb joint. Under the "don't pay more" guarantee
