    Starbucks, Costa, Cafe Nero and any other large coffee shop.

    I know for a fact that they buy huge bags of coffee beans that can make around 40 cups of coffee for £1.50....

    A coffee alone is £2.50. Which if my calculations are correct...every coffee sold makes a 66% profit.

    Pizza Hut and Dominos Pizza have the highest profit markup of any takeaway junk food chain.

    Yeah. THAT.
    :O And that pizza doesn't even look good... Well done Pizza Hut and Dominos Owners!

    I think it's got to be pints of lager etc.
    I mean, £3 a pint is normal now, that's considerably more than petrol ffs. you can't tell me lager is more valuable than petrol.

    Considering you're predicted AAA, apart from Durham they're all horribly weak. I was going under the assumption you knew this?

    Yes and if you look closely you'll notice I'm applying for Primary Education which isn't offered at any Russel Group universities. I was going under the assumption you knew this?

    Lancaster, Edinburgh, York, Warwick, Manchester, Birmingham? Sorry if I'm wrong, I'm just going on what I can see in the guardian table for education.

    In one area I go to, I can get a 7 inch pizza, chips and a can of drink for £2. In areas closer to home (Central london-ish) this will cost in an excess of £10 ...ridiculous

    I'm sure corned beef used to be cheaper than real beef - suspect the Argentinians are quietly screwing us because of the Faulkland Is.
    Sainsburys basics is still under £2 for a 340g tin. Lidyls stock corned beef at a similar price. I don't know about Asda, but the best price Tesco offer is £2 a tin, which is still a sensible price, just not much of a bargain.

    Advice: every single tin tastes exactly the same, no matter what brand you buy.

    I was shocked at how expensive chicken breasts were.

    £4.65 for ASDA own brand 3 chicken breasts. Yet I got like 4-5 massive chicken legs (ASDA own brand) for £2.40.

    I want chicken.
    That's because each chicken has only two breasts, and every ****er seems to want them for some reason (don't ask me why, I think they taste of nothing). A simpel case of supply vs demand. As well as that, they have to pay someone to butcher them.

    On the other hand, you can get some serious bargains on wings, thighs and drumsticks in the supermarket.

    Which leads me to point out: KFC is a massive rip off.
