A Woolworths customer’s savage review of a popular microwave meal found in the store and warning others not to buy it has gone viral online.
A Sydneysider was shopping in the outback Woolies Marrickville Metro when they noticed a bizarre handwritten note hanging on the shelf attached to a Coco Earth Butter Chicken with Naan meal.
The critic rated the sauce “OK,” but rejected the rest of the ready-to-eat meal, which costs $6 and is ready to eat after 90 seconds in the microwave.
‘Chicken likes to eat old rope. Naan – inedible unless you like rubber. The same goes for Tikka,” the note read.
A photo of the note was uploaded to Reddit two days ago, where it has since been updated 2,000 times.
“Someone left this review of a butter chicken meal at Woolies today,” the message read.

A third wrote: ‘Anytime you can buy chicken covered in something (sauce, coating, etc.), I guarantee it will be the most renegade chicken.’
