Would you buy a three-course Valentine's meal from Poundland?

The main course might get you dumped...

Valentine's Day meal from Poundland

Step in, Poundland. They're encouraging hopeless romantics to buy a three-course Valentine's Day meal from their stores and, best of all, it'll only set you back seven quid.

That's just £3.50 per person. Bargain, right?

But you might not think that once you've seen the main course, which will more than likely get you dumped...

The starter

For starters, they recommend 'Crab Bruschetta Antipasto', which is a fancy way of saying 'crab on bread'.

Poundland

"A wonderfully decadent twist on the classic Italian appetiser.

"Succulent crab meat tops delicately toasted, delicious and light bruschetta with tomato and oregano. Drizzle a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar for that finishing touch!"

  • Bruschetta Tomato & Oregano – £1
  • Princes Crab Meat – £1

The main

Remember, this is the one you only serve if you absolutely hate your other half... 'mouth-watering meatballs with noodles'.

The only catch is that the 'noodles' come courtesy of a Pot Noodle... beef and tomato flavoured, specifically.

"Recreate your own lady and the tramp moment [are Pot Noodle noodles even long enough for this?!] this Valentine's Day with tender meatballs and noodles in a rich tomato sauce enhanced by the subtle flavour of herbs and a sprinkling of peas throughout."

  • Look What We Found Italian Beef Meatballs – £1
  • Pot Noodle Beef & Tomato – 2 for £1
  • Batchelors Garden Peas – 3 for £1

Dessert

"Chocolate Treats'? We can get on board with this.

"Indulge in a refined selection of artisanal chocolates that suit a sophisticated pallet."

  • Ferrero Rocher 4 Pack – £1
  • After Dinner Mints- £1

Our advice? Maybe buy the Ferrero Rocher and after dinner mints, then pick up a bunch of flowers on the way home for good measure...
