Ben & Jerrys fans can buy huge 4.5 litre tubs for the bargain price of £3.50 – Mirror Online

Some days there’s nothing better than sitting down on the sofa, putting on a trashy film and tucking into a pot of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.

But, if you’re like us, then you might find that the pot ends up empty far too quickly.

Well, it seems we no longer have to deal with that issue anymore.

That’s because savvy shoppers have discovered you can now buy huge 4.5 litre tubs of the frozen treat, as opposed to the regular 465ml ones sold in supermarkets.

And the best part about it is, the tubs don’t cost a fortune – in fact, they’re a bargain in comparison to the smaller ones!

According to HotUKDeals, you can get a giant tub of Ben & Jerry’s from Heron Foods for just £3.50.

Heron Foods is owned by B&M so it’s likely you might also be able to find a similar deal in their stores as well.

A tub of Cookie Dough, almost 10 times the size of the ones we’re used to was recently spotted in the Walsgrave branch of Heron Foods in Coventry.

And don’t worry if you’re not a Cookie Dough fan, people have also come across large tubs of Baked Alaska as well.

Yum!

These size tubs are thought to usually only be sold in cinemas and other areas of the catering industry – so this seems like a pretty rare find.

People on social media were thrilled by the discovery.

One person called it the “deal of the millennium”, while another said they were considering driving 35 miles to their nearest branch of Heron Foods to get some.

Others joked about having to make some major space in their freezer to fit the ice cream in.

A spokeswoman for Heron Foods told Mirror online: “I can confirm that we are selling these tubs in all Heron Foods stores however as you can appreciate they have been flying off the shelves as everyone is going mad for them!

“We are unable to say exactly what stock is left out there but we advise that shoppers are quick to ensure they don’t miss out!”

They added: “Watch this space… there are some other amazing ice creams deals coming this way and we’re confident they’ll fly just as quickly as the Ben & Jerrys!”
