Coles ’bargain’ causes frenzy

JUST days after Woolies held a flash sale on frozen food, Coles has slashed the price of a popular brand of frozen chips - and people are delighted.

Bags of Birds Eye's Deli Style chips and roast potatoes are being sold at just 98c, a huge saving from their regular $3.50 price tag.

With both the sea salt and rosemary and parmesan garlic and basil varieties available at the heavily discounted price, Aussies are stocking up.

On Facebook, fans of the frozen chips have been sharing photos of their fried potato hauls, declaring it "a fantastic markdown".

"We love these but can never afford them," one person wrote, sharing a photo of her many bags of "cheap chips".

Another said: "Thank you to whoever shared the post about the cheap chips, good to know they are available in WA too, just went to Coles Alkimos Trinity and they have a full freezer."

Someone else shared a photo of their entire kitchen top covered in the frozen goodies.

"So guys I told mum about the Coles deli chips this afternoon, and she just sent me this pic," she wrote. "The whole family are getting chips, don't worry guys Wynnum plaza still have plenty, freezers full and plenty."
