    (Sorry it's a small pic). See how full the plate looks? But if you look closely you can see there are hardly any carrots and peas, only a few potatoes etc. They must have put it on a saucer to make the plate look so full! It's certainly not a normal sized dinner plate.
    Packaged roast dinners are mickey mouse to the extreme - I could probably eat 5 of them in one go there so unfilling.

    Love this thread, however, Big Macs in real life look and are delicious, and does that pizza look so bad?! That 'lasagna' though :lol: ready meals are just a sure fire path to disappointment xD

    Don't have any pics, but I'm always disappointed at the size of burgers from McDonalds, Burger King etc, the pictures make them look huge, then they are barely the size of my fist :'(
    Apparently, the ones in America are huge.

    Go there and god bless your return. :sadnod:

    So you've looked at the menu. You've ogled the picture on the box. What you're about to consume looks freaking awesome. The picture you're looking at has a pristine article of food or drink glory, positioned in a way that makes it look irresistible.

    Then, YOURS is served. What the hell. WHAT THE HELL. Mine doesn't look anything LIKE that!

    We've all experienced this, but I'd like you to post your absolute favourites - food and drink that look absolutely NOTHING like advertised. Be it your favourite fast food, to something in a restaurant or cafe, or something out of a tin, all examples are welcome!

    So let me start us off with:

    Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Lasagne

    This is what the box shows me. Mmm.



    And this is the picture from the website. Even better. Look at those perfect layers and the just-bubbling cheese. Yumzers.



    Now, let me just get mine out of... what the hell.

    I seriously love your threads, you make TSR a better place

    Me too. I'm enjoying looking at it and thinking should I go downstairs and get food or not.

    Sorry, but to be surprised that a dirt-cheap, machine processed and frozen meal isn't actually as good as the picture implied it would be makes you either incredibly naive or very easily entertained.
    Easily entertained? How exactly does that make someone easly entertained?

    Oh look, a stating the obvious thread.

    Paying 99p for a burger isn't going to get you a gourmet delight. Whatever next?
    If you haven't got anything constructive to add to the thread, **** off and go post your sarcy comments elsewhere k?

    Isn't the original one stuffed a bit more? I mean, sure it doesn't look uber pretty (doesn't look too bad either)...But at least it comes with more stuffing.
