The logic of Boots Meal Deal

The Meal Deal costs ‘2.49. You get a sandwich, a drink and a snack. You would expect naturally that you would be saving money with this combined purchase. Nevertheless with some of the sandwiches in the deal costing ‘2.50 by themselves, it is almost counter intuitive that the sandwich-only fan buyer HAS TO buy a drink and snack. Rehydration is all good, but you also have to get unhealthy stuff like crisps or a chocolate bar.

Luckily they had a packet of dried prunes as the snack as well, so all was right with the world. If not the Easyjet flight I embarked on just after I ate them.
