A Woolworths customer’s brutal review of a popular microwaveable meal found in a store warning others not to buy it has gone viral online.
A Sydney shopkeeper was shopping for groceries at Woolies Marrickville Underground Station in the inner west when they spotted a strange handwritten note attached to Coco Butter Chicken with Naan Meal on the shelf.
The reviewer rated the sauce as ‘OK’ but slammed the rest of the ready-made meal, which costs $6 and is ready to eat in 90 seconds in the microwave.
‘Chicken is like eating old wire. Naan – inedible unless you like to eat rubber. Same with Tikka, ‘reading notes.
A photo of the note was uploaded to Reddit two days ago, where it was upvoted 2,000 times.
‘Someone left this review about the butter chicken meal at Woolies today,’ the post was captioned.
