Tesco customer complains about “turkey trimmings” wrap that looks like it was made by Scrooge


A TESCO customer bought a mouth-watering turkey and trimmings wrap only to find a very Scrooge-like filling.

Katie Brightwell was promised turkey, bacon, cranberry sauce and sage and onion stuffing mayonnaise in her tortilla.

But the 33-year-old instead discovered two tiny fragments of turkey, a few spinach leaves as a smear of white and red goo.

Katie, from Sudbury, Suffolk, shelled out £2.50 for the seasonal snack but found it failed to get her in the Christmas mood.

A disappointed Katie took to the company’s Facebook page to complain to the retailer.

The sad looking snack left Katie hungry

She posted a photo of the snack with the sarcastic caption: “Wow Tesco! Steady on with the filling in the Turkey and trimmings wrap!

“Definitely don’t need any dinner tonight, completely full now.”

Photos on the Tesco website show a generously filled, “hand wrapped” tortilla stuffed with turkey, spinach, smoked bacon and sage and onion stuffing mayonnaise with cranberry sauce.

The product’s description even boasts five times how the snack is “carefully handpacked” daily.

The website states: “Our chefs’ recipe layers turkey with cranberry sauce and a bacon & stuffing mayonnaise. Carefully handpacked everyday.

“Our wraps are made using selected ingredients, then expertly hand rolled in a soft tortilla.”

Fellow social media users were tickled by Katie’s situation.

Aaron Quinn wrote: “Should’ve saved it for Christmas! That would’ve been Christmas dinner sorted.”

And Kate Rowley said: “Are you sure you didn’t eat it and forget?”

Speaking today, carer and part time barmaid Katie said: “It looked full when I opened it, till I picked it out and could feel there was clearly nothing in it.

“I was extremely disappointed, but actually laughed at how minimal it was.

“I got an apology, took all the relevant details to be passed on, and got a refund just for the wrap.

“It has put me off buying this particular wrap again.”

Although a Christmas wrap being sold at the start of November might raise a few eyebrows, Tesco are not alone in rolling out festive stock early.

Earlier this year, Card Factory hit headlines for selling Christmas cards in August.

Meanwhile, Christmas sandwiches were spotted on sale at Boots and Marks and Spencer’s almost three months early.
