Tesco Finest Valentine's Day Dinners Are A Thing Now

By Holly Brockwell on at

Romance has gone bust this year.

From Poundland engagement rings and packets of nothing to cut-price Valentine's dinners, there's a way to show your beloved that they mean less than your phone bill from every retailer, it seems.

Said dinners are of course from Tesco, purveyors of the correctly-priced Freddo (this week only, sadly).

The Tesco Finest Valentine's Day meal deal costs £20 and gives you a choice of 28 products to mix and match as your starters, mains, sides, desserts and drinks. That's 38,400 possible combinations, fact fans: one for every person you swiped on Tinder before settling for this particular human.

You get any starter, any two main meals, any side dish, any dessert and either a half-bottle of champers, full bottle of prosecco, wine or a box of chocs.

Some of your new choices include:

Finest Red Onion and Camembert Tear and Share Bread to start, Finest Chicken in Champagne Sauce and Finest Seabass with Roasted Shallot and Garlic Butter for mains, and Finest Salted Caramel and Belgian Chocolate Profiteroles and Finest Belgian Chocolate Tarts to finish.

And some of the more popular choices from last Valentine's are back too:

Succulent Finest Sirloin Steak with Diane Butter, Finest Lamb Shank with Seasonal Vegetables and bistro-style Finest Lobster Mac and Cheese, all return to the menu for 2019.

LOBSTER MAC AND CHEESE. We've just ruined our keyboards with drool.

Of course, most of those choices aren't much good to you if you're vegetarian. Tesco's got you covered there (but sadly it doesn't sound like there's much for vegans):

Buttery pastry filled Finest Slow Roast Tomato and Mozzarella Tartlets to start; Finest Goats’ Cheese with Maple Roasted Butternut and Caramelised Onion for main; and a twist on a classic with Finest Coconut, Mango and Passion Fruit Desserts to finish.

The £20 meal deal will be available in store and online from the 8th of February. Alternatively you could just buy 200 Freddos to share.
