B&M is selling giant 4.5litre tubs of Ben & Jerry's ice cream for £3.50

B&M is selling massive 4.5litre tubs of Ben & Jerry's ice cream for a bargain £3.50.

Normally, you can expect to fork out around £4.50 for a 465ml pot of the branded snack – so you'll be getting almost 10 times as much ice cream for £1 less.

Usually, the tubs would be stocked in places such as restaurants and cinemas, but businesses haven't been able to open as usual over the past few months due to the coronavirus lockdown.

As a result, some of these industrial size food products have been appearing in the supermarkets.

For example, last month Sainsbury's was stocking massive 16kg bags of flour that would normally have been bought by the catering industry.

Shoppers have spotted the giant tubs of ice cream in baked Alaska flavour and cookie dough.

The baked Alaska version is made up of vanilla ice cream, loosely mixed with a marshmallow swirl and white polar bear shaped chocolate chunks.

Cookie dough is also made from vanilla ice cream that's been mixed with chunks of chocolate chip cookie dough.

Per 100g, there are 220 calories in the baked Alaska ice cream and 270 calories in the cookie dough treat.

Some shoppers have said that they have spotted the deal in Herons Food stores too, where the same size tubs also cost £3.50.

Heron Foods was taken over by B&M in 2017 in a £152million deal, which is why you may find the same deals at both retailers.

It's also worth noting that not all B&M shops have a freezer section so you might want to call your local branch ahead of leaving the house to avoid disappointment.

Neither B&M or Heron Foods offer an online delivery service so you will have to visit a branch.

You can find your B&M nearest store and its contact details using the locator tool here or Heron Foods shop here.

Remember though, the tubs are nearly 10 times bigger than normal so make sure you have the freezer space at home before snapping them up.

As the warm weather continues during lockdown, there's one thing to enjoy the sun with – an ice cream.

Because of the coronavirus guidelines, many ice cream parlours are now open for business again – so here's some of the best in cities across the UK.

If you fancy giving it a go yourself, one reader has shared her simple recipe for home-made ice cream using just three ingredients – and it looks incredible.
