B&M is selling huge tub of Ben & Jerry’s 10 TIMES bigger than normal for just £5

B&M is selling GIANT tubs of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream that are almost 10 times bigger than the ones you get at the supermarket – and they only cost £5.

The tubs come in peanut butter cup flavour and contain a huge 4.5litres of ice cream.

The tubs cost £5 - £1.50 more than they did last time


The tubs cost £5 – £1.50 more than they did last time

That’s £1.50 more expensive than when the discounter last stocked them but you’ll still be saving a fortune compared to the supermarket tubs.

A 465ml tub of peanut butter cup Ben & Jerry’s will typically set you back £4.50, which works out at around £43.50 for the same amount of ice cream in the tubs from B&M. That’s a saving of £38.50.

Usually, the tubs would be stocked in places such as restaurants, cinemas and theme parks, but due to coronavirus closures and restrictions businesses haven’t need to stock up so much.

Instead, some of the industrial size food products have been snapped up by supermarkets and high street retailers.

Here’s how to cut the cost of your grocery shop

SAVING on your shop can make a big difference to your wallet. Here are some tips from Money.co.uk about how you can cut the cost of your shopping bills:

  • Write yourself a list – Only buy items that you need. If it isn’t on your list, don’t put it in the trolley
  • Create a budget – Work out a weekly budget for your food shopping
  • Never shop hungry – you are far more likely to buy  more food if your tummy is rumbling
  • Don’t buy pre-chopped veggies or fruit – The extra they’ll charge for chopping can be eye watering
  • Use social media – follow your favourite retailers to find out about the latest deals
  • Be disloyal – You may want to go to different stores to find the best bargains
  • Check the small print –  It’s always worth checking the price per kg/lb/litre when comparing offers so you’re making a like for like decision as a bigger box won’t necessarily mean you get more
  • Use your loyalty cards – Don’t be afraid to sign up to them all. They all work slightly differently – work out what bonus suits you better and remember to trade in your points for additional rewards

The giant tubs are only available in the one peanut butter flavour and contain around 330 calories per 100ml.

The cooling treats are available to buy from B&M stores that sell frozen foods – you can find your nearest one using the locator tool.

They’re also available to buy at Heron Foods, which is owned by B&M – you can find your nearest branch here.

Neither B&M or Heron Foods offer an online delivery service so you will have to visit a branch.

The ice cream won’t be a regular addition to shelves to you might not want to hang around as they’re unlikely to be restocked once they’ve been snapped up.

Remember though, the tubs are nearly 10 times bigger than normal so make sure you have the freezer space at home before snapping them up.

Other industrial sized products have also been spotted in supermarkets following the closure of restaurants and pubs during lockdown.
