We've only Tesco and Morrisons near us. I have the jars but they aint the same in a stew. Now when I cook it tastes different and I am feeling deprived. It is an awful thing to have to relearn to cook a stew after 50 years. Elaine.

Husband told by our tesco that they are discontinued. I've emailed Unilever to try to find out why, so I will see if they reply. Meanwhile no stews, no braised liver no steak and onions. Oh I will have to stop it's making me hungry just thinking about what I can't have. Elaine.

Hi Elaine, just googled them and they still seem to be on the website for the company. Maybe you will get a box sent to you free.
hope you are ok.
