Next Episode of Rip Off Britain: Food is
Gloria Hunniford, Angela Rippon and Julia Somerville investigate the truth about our food in a series exposing everything from the secrets of the supermarkets to the truth behind the labels.
The team get to grips with some of the promotions, prices, and portions of the food we buy. From the supersized to the super small, they explore why some meals have fallen short of expectations - in particular revealing the surprising truth about how little filling is required inside pies. Plus a look at why big helpings prove you can have too much of a good thing - is the lack of smaller helpings good business sense, or are some establishments missing a trick?
The team explore viewers' concerns about supermarket deals and offers - do they always save as much money as it might appear? From the lunchtime meal deal to the best value if dining for one, they have tips for everyone wanting to avoid feeling short-changed. Plus a look at why, as many of the major supermarkets opt out of selling sweets at the till, some say the so called 'healthy alternatives' at the tills are no better and could even be worse for childrens' teeth.
The team unravel some of the costs involved in eating out and investigate whether the prices some restaurants charge for wine are fair. What is a reasonable profit to make on a bottle, and how can customers tell if what they're being charged is fair? Also, with continuing controversy over what happens to any tip you might leave waiting staff, there is a look at the surprising ways some establishments deal with the issue. Can a no-tipping policy ever work? And a former member of the royal household explains how to get the best value from a traditional afternoon tea.
