I&J Meal Box costs more than actual meal

I was at Athienitis Spar the other day, and as soon as I saw a display of I&J Meal Boxes, I went for it.

Their curry range is amazing, and I especially love the tikka masala. You would think it’s fresh from an Indian restaurant, not out of the box.

Then I saw the price, and I had to take a picture. $7.10 which is about R61.

That seems a little steep to me, but I don’t have any comparison, so I can’t be sure.

What I do know is that $7 is extremely steep for a normal meal, let alone a frozen instant meal.

I did NOT buy it.

    We also have running water, CocaCola and some even use mobile phones.

  2. People in Zimbabwe are now consuming frozen cooked meals? Surely it’s the emergence of the global middle class.
