The supermarket’s low calorie ready meals are back on shelves after a legal battle with Slimming World, and they include a beef lasagna and Piri Piri chicken burgers
Meal for ones include cottage pie and beef lasagna, whilst Piri Piri chicken burgers make it on to the Slimzone menu too.
Asda first launched the low calorie Slimzone range back in January this year and said that they were designed to be enjoyed by those following the Slimming World diet.
But the supermarket was force to pull the range from shelves a month later after Slimming World threatened to sue them because it was using their trademark “unlawfully”.
Now, it seems that the two brands have settled their differences and Asda has relaunched the range as well as new products.
The ready meals come in one portion sizes and cost £2.50 each – 50p cheaper than Slimming World’s range exclusive to Iceland.
You can now enjoy the new piri piri chicken burger at home. Each Slimzone burger contains 101 calories and a pack of four cost £2.75.
Of course the calorie count doesn’t include the bun, sauce or side, but you could pair it with the Slimzone spiced sweet potatoes that are only 91 calories per serving.
Asda is the only supermarket selling the frozen Piri Piri chicken burgers, although Iceland sell a Peri Peri Chicken Selection Box for £2.50 or sweet potato burgers with the Portugese flavouring for £1.50 for two.
Other new sides like rainbow riced vegetables and Indian cauliflower rice are also included in the range, and come on handy portion sized bags which contain 36-37 calories each.
Low calorie Tomato Fishy, King Prawn Pasta, Pork & Leek Sausage and Pork & Beef Meatballs are also new.
The supermarket has timed the relaunch with the festive period, aimed at helping people lose weight before Christmas and New Year parties and “saving time” cooking during the busiest time of the year.
Aldi also launched a slimming range of ready meals which contain less calories and is a third cheaper than the Slimming World ones from Iceland.
The weight loss organisation also threatened to sue the budget supermarket too.
