Asda cuts the price of its 31-item food delivery box from £30 to £25

ASDA shoppers can now get its essentials food box delivered to their door for less as it's cut the price of the 31-item parcel from £30 to £25.

Launched last month, the box aims to help those struggling to get to the supermarket or secure delivery slots during the coronavirus crisis.

The boxes typically contain 31 store cupboard staples and the price includes home delivery.

We've asked Asda how long the boxes are available for at the reduced price and we'll update this story as soon as we get a response.

The boxes proved popular when they launched with Asda setting up a new website just to take orders for them.

They include essentials such as cereal, bread, pasta, tinned fruit and vegetables, sauces, jam, tea bags, long-life milk and a few treats too.

Asda says whatever you do get will always be worth £30, including at the new reduced £25 price.

Anyone can get a box and it will be delivered directly to your doorstep within two days of you placing the order on Asda's website.

Asda's essentials box contains the most items compared to its rivals.

Morrisons' version costs £35 and contains 23 items, while M&S' essentials box costs £28 – down from £35 at the time of launch – and is filled with 28 products.

And Aldi has a box for £19.99 that contains 21 items, which is down from £24.99 for 22 items at launch.

Asda is giving thousands of care homes priority access to online delivery slots for six months due to coronavirus.

Meanwhile, Asda and Sainsbury’s customers have waited up to four weeks for refunds for returned or substituted items.

And Asda shoppers have been told to "only touch items if you're going to buy them".
