There's where the pizza companies are clawing all their money back with these sides, drinks and desserts. Would you pay £5 for 4 small cookies in Tesco? £4 for a quarter of a bag of McCain's potato wedges? strawberry float NO. But ordering a pizza? Yeah sure, I'll take 3...

I really, really miss the days where you could game the Domino's system into giving you two large pizzas for £13. :(

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Usually get one a week or every two weeks on a Saturday or Sunday. Either a fish supper or a Chinese (fried rice, chicken, pineapple, onions, sweet sauce), or a Dominos.

It's annoying how Dominos changed it so you can't really use the vouchers if you get sides and deserts or whatever.

The wedges are awful at Pizza Hut and Dominos, but Pizza Hut warm cookie dough =/= tesco cookies.

Also sure they make a ton off the sides, but lets not pretend they don't make a load of money from the pizzas either.

I’m still pissed off at Dominos for getting rid of the cheesy nachos with jalapeños :x They were always my go-to sides.

Sometimes I order Dominos just for the chicken kickers

I don't know how they make those things but they are one of the few foods I genuinely get cravings for

Chinese usually tops £30 for two, but they give so much food that we can usually have leftovers the next day of equal size to the first meal.


I clearly don't eat what others eat. I spend about £20 on Chinese and that feeds 6 of us.

It's a lot of different dishes meaning we get a lot of different bits (dat salt and pepper chilli chicken) with an eye on having another meal out of it the next day

I guess we don't get a lot. We tend to have.

2 large bags of chips,
Beef curry
Noodles
Large Egg Fried Rice
Prawn Crackers
And the weird kids have 2 large jumbo sausages.

Occasionally we spend a little more by getting spare ribs and/or chicken balls.

TBH, I'd rather just do my own Chinese styled food. Only thing I can't do is make Chinese styled curry. I can't get it right.

That pizza looks strawberry floating disgusting. My usual one is the Pepperoni Passion or the Sizzler depending on what mood I'm in.

Unless that was delivered by The Queen I'm unsure how they can charge £23.

Was there not that meme where someone in a Dominos uniform was seen buying wedges in ASDA?
