Mums have expressed their anger with M & S’s ‘outdated’ description of their Mother’s Day meal deal.
The supermarket has found itself in the middle of controversy after the description of the £ 20 Sunday lunch was shared online.
It reads: “Let Mum put her feet up and tuck into a flavor-packed Sunday lunch with our Mother’s Day Family Dine In.
“This serves-four feast includes a centerpiece roasting main (such as British beef or a vegan roast), three sides and a sharing dessert for only £ 20!”
Many mums took to social media to share their thoughts ahead of Mother’s Day on Sunday, March 27, the MEN reports.
Claire Sparks commented: “Seriously. Are the ‘mum usually does the cooking’ adverts so passé.
“Mums are actually worth more. They work and do things more exciting than stay in the kitchen.”
Jen Campbell agreed: “I totally agree.“ Let Mum… ”is horrible.
“What, sorry, because Mum has no choice in the matter… someone else has to“ let ”her not produce a family meal, and only because it’s Mother’s Day?
“How about” Treat Mum to a flavor-packed Sunday lunch … “
Claire replied: “Seriously it’s so dated. Like mum’s key job is cooking for the family every Sunday.
“My mum rarely cooked a roast. If we had a roast my dad did it. Shock horror. Men can go in the kitchen too !!!”
Jen said: “Welcome back to the 1950s.”
However, many were more interested in the food itself.
Jean Kelsall wrote: “That looks so yummy.”
Margaret Ann Stenson said: “That looks delicious.”
Maggie Kirby noted: “This deal looks amazing in my local M&S.”
Kathy Freeman added: “That’s me sorted rather cook my own at home than sit in overcrowded pub.”
The £ 20 Mother’s Day Meal Deal is available in M&S stores now.
