We ordered 'bargain' Christmas cake in Tesco delivery – we were baffled when it arrived | The Sun

December 22, 2022

A COUPLE who ordered a bargain Tesco Christmas cake felt seriously short changed when it arrived.

The 'Fruity and decadent Iced Rich Fruit Cake' from the supermarket's 'Finest' range comes with a star on top.


The 283 calorie festive treat is neatly packaged in a posh box and viewing window.

But the size of the Christmas cake, which appears to be flogged for a tenner each online, left the couple gobsmacked.

The TikTok video was captioned: "When your wife gets a bargain fruit cake for Christmas delivered."

The camera then pans out to show the iced cake is in fact the size of a cup cake and fits in the palm of your hand.

The clip sparked a wave of laughing emoji reactions in the comment section – with viewers left giggling at the mishap.

Tesco say the treat is meant to be a half size Chrimbo cake.

The Christmas let down is not first this year – as Brits have experienced a string of shoddy festive experiences.
