The number of slices is unimportant.
It's pissing wafer thin, that's the problem.
Let's do the maths.
Tesco value cooked ham, 10 slices, 113g. £0.55p
Ingredients: 78% pork.
This equals 88g of ham for 55p
Tesco crumby ham, 5(?) slices, 120g, £2.00p
Ingredients: 98% pork (Near enough 100%)
This is 88g of ham for £1.46
Even when you take into account that there is a lot of water in the poverty ham, it's still about a third of the price. Is it really worth it? They taste pretty much the same, and are identical in terms of the preservatives that have been added.
Part of the extra cost is for the larger packaging, most of which is just empty space.
