Asda has kept the price of its Valentine's Day meal deal the same as last year when it also cost £15.

The options are also pretty much identical, except you couldn't choose to substitute your drink for chocolates in 2020.

You still got one starter, one main, two sides and one dessert last year.

The maximum saving at Asda this time is £5, compared to buying each item individually, if you go for the most expensive booze.

Each starter, side and dessert cost £2.50 each, while each main is priced at £7 usually – so this part of the deal would cost £17 normally.

Add on the priciest bottle of booze, the £8 bottle of cava rose, and your bill would normally be £25.

The deal takes this combination down to £20, so a maximum saving of £5.

But this is less than the average £8 saving Asda said shoppers could make last year.

Asda's Valentine's Day meal deal will be available in stores nationwide from February 10 until February 16.

You can find your nearest store by using the Asda shop locator tool.

Other supermarkets that are charging £15 for their Valentine's Day meal deals include Co-op, Morrisons and Tesco.

Morrisons offers the exact same combination of food – one starter, one main, two sides, one dessert, one drink or chocolates – but it has a maximum saving of £15.25.

Tesco also offers a similar choice of courses, but there isn't an option to substitute the drink for a box of chocolates, and the maximum saving is £15.20.

If you go for the Co-op, you only get one side and the maximum saving is £9.80.

But it could still be a good option for non-drinkers, as the price of the meal deal is reduced to £12 – with a maximum saving of £8.05 – if you go for a soft drink.

We've rounded up all the supermarket Valentine's Day meal deals including Aldi, M&S and Sainsbury's.
