This is a serious request, for once. For the past month, I have been on more than one occasion to Tesco (I know, wash my mouth out with soap!) trying to get, amongst other items, Pork gravy granules, or failing that, Pork gravy cubes.

Despite there being virtually every other flavour under the sun, and some I had never heard of, there were no Pork granules or cubes anywhere.

I went to Customer Services only to be told that 'Tesco no longer stocks them anywhere in the country'.

Is this true? Even if you don't buy them yourself, could you have a quick look, or ask the 'other half' to do so when next shopping - and it doesn't have to be Tesco. I would be interested to find out if other supermarkets stock them.

I am beginning to smell a rat here, but I need to be sure before kicking up a row, which I will do if what I suspect may be true.

Thanks,
Col.

Col, I think I use the Knor stock/jelly cubes for Pork.

Could you not make it from scratch yourself?

Never had much luck making gravy from pork scratchings.
