Any shockers here then?

Tesco has officially revealed what the UK’s most popular meal deal combination was in 2023… and it’s all feeling pretty familiar.

We all know that meal deals are a classic lunch option for hungry office workers and for those looking for something quick to grab on the go, and it’s fair to say that Tesco’s is one of the most popular on the market – but which combination was the most popular over the past 12 months? Which meal deal was the most commonly-picked from supermarket shelves in 2023?

Well, it looks like it’s we have a case of ‘new year, same meal deal’ on our hands.

That’s because, for the second year running now, the supermarket retailer has revealed that the nation’s favourite meal deal combination in 2023 was the Tesco Sausage Bacon & Egg Triple, McCoy’s Flame Grilled Steak ‘Grab Bag’ Crisps, and a Coca-Cola (500ml).

While the ‘all day breakfast’ triple butty took the top spot for mains in 2023, this did, however, change during the festive season, as the Tesco Turkey & Trimmings Sandwich took over the coveted number one ranking instead.


The Tesco Chicken Triple Sandwich, the Tesco Smoked Ham & Mature Cheddar Sub, the Tesco Hoisin Duck Wrap, and the Tesco Chicken Caesar Wrap all rounded out the top five.

Some of the other most-picked snack options included the Tesco Egg Protein Pot, Big Hula Hoops BBQ Beef ‘Grab Bag’ Crisps, and Walkers Sensations Thai Sweet Chilli ‘Grab Bag’ Crisps.
