Stunned Tesco shoppers spot Kellogg’s Fruit n Fibre on sale for £7 with SECURITY TAGS on boxes 

Tesco shoppers have been left stunned after spotting Kellogg’s Fruit n Fibre cereal on sale for a staggering £7 – so pricey that staff even put security tags on boxes.  

Oli Headley, 32, was among those to spot the expensive cereal sighting a box in Hereford, Herefordshire, yesterday afternoon.  

The horticultural engineer was in such ‘disbelief’, he asked a member of staff to run the cereal through the till only for it to still show up as costing £7. 

Brandon John, from London, contacted Tesco on social media as he spotted the same £7 boxes of Fruit n Fibre in his local store complete with security tags

Even more mysteriously, when Mr Headley contacted the supermarket chain on social media, they told him that according to Tesco’s systems they don’t even sell the 500g boxes.

Oli, who runs his own business, said: ‘A friend of mine works in the store and he was stood there staring at it [the Fruit n Fibre] in disbelief. He ran it through the till and it actually came up as £7.

‘I don’t know how it’s happened. It’s strange. Other people have seen the same thing so it must be quite nationwide.

‘It’s not just local to me, it’s quite a nationwide c**k up I would think.

‘Tesco did reply to my message saying they don’t have it on their system that they sell the 500g box which is a bit strange.

‘It is a bit odd. It almost makes me tempted to go back and buy one.’

Mr John asked the supermarket in a series of social media posts: 'How come you are charging nearly four times of other retailers for the Fruit n Fibre?

Another shopper Brandon John, from London, also contacted Tesco on social media as he spotted the same £7 boxes of Fruit n Fibre in his local store complete with security tags.

Mr John asked the supermarket: ‘How come you are charging nearly four times of other retailers for the Fruit n Fibre?

‘Even the store know they are expensive hence the security tags on them.’ 

When approached for comment, a Tesco spokesperson said: ‘It appears to be a pricing error and we’re looking into it.’
