Oh, the only really good stuff was the prepared foods..and some of their branded frozen foods, like the shepherd's pie.

For staples I'll stick to Walmart (50˘ for a can of beans vs. 69˘ at F&E) and for my other items Trader Joes is definitely better. But I was really impressed with the large variety of prepared foods -- a godsend to someone like me who can ruin boiling water. I can highly recommend the cranberry bleu cheese spinach and romaine salad with raspberry vinaigrette.

Fresh & Easy is UK-chain Tesco's attempt at entering the US market (pun intended).

Like some US chains, Tesco has different levels in the UK. Many in California believe they chose their format for the States based on Trader Joe's.

I've only visited the store near my home a couple of times, but I was not impressed. It wasn't nearly as unique as I had hoped it would be. They had a decent selection of prepared foods, but the rest of the store seemed pretty generic. Just my opinion.

Does anyone else have this grocery chain in their area? They've been popping up all over the place here and I went in one for the first time today.

They had tons of prepared salads and meals, and a bunch that were low calorie although not advertised as such. I got a yummy beef shepherd's pie with 330 cal/serving and a serving was huge! I also got a big bowl of jambalaya with 360 calories total.
