so which bags offer the best mass:cost ratio?

obviously the least massive sweets would be Maltesers, they'd be the least mass of sweets per pound when sold in fixed bag sizes.

edit - will be back with some research results soon.

I did some comparisons when in Tesco yesterday. You get more Minstrels for your money b*ying 4 x £1 bags than 2 x £2 bags.

From memory, last year the best offer we got for these bags was when the large bags were reduced to £1.50 as you only needed 2 of them to get a cinema ticket so that's the offer I'll be watching out for . . . . BTW I b*ght 3 packets of sweets, the individual packets where there is a code to text inside each bag to see if you've won a cinema ticket . . . I never won but would be interested to hear if anyone wins from these bags. :rolleyes:
Preferred cinemas: Best: Glasgow Quay, Glasgow Braehead, Glasgow Renfield Street, Glasgow Fort & Paisley
Others I'd go to: Glasgow Showcase Baillieston

Hope to get tickets for: Every film if they come to my preferred cinemas

For those of us who are planning to supplement our totals with these vouchers, and particularly those like me who are waiting for the bigger bags to go on offer, these are the cut-off dates:

Offer runs between 16/7/14 and 19/11/14
Vouchers are valid until 7/12/14.

Also when we are notifying each other of where the sweets are on offer, can we perhaps also make a note of when the particular offer runs until? That way it could save us a wasted trip to a particular supermarket only to find the offer has finished.

Roll on the bigger bags!
