It's not the first time the supermarket giant has held a flash sale on the brand.

Just a few weeks ago, Coles reduced bags of Birds Eye's deli chips and roast potatoes to 98c, a huge saving from their regular $3.50 price tag.

It came days after rival Woolworths held a massive half-price sale on its selected frozen foods range.

But that sale was only available online - nonetheless, it still attracted many keen shoppers as it avoided having to line up in store.

"I'm seriously keen, my cart is full of finger foods for my daughters birthday party next month," a thrilled customer said online.

"We'll save so much money!"
