  • Worst of the value products I have tried:

    Morrisons Value Mayonnaise. I think it was 37p for a large jar (500ml). Just unbelievable - seriously.
    I bought two. :rotfl:

    Forget what its called and I know you dont mention Iceland,but they do 2 bottles of washing up liquid for a pound and its fab and this is coming from a Fairy liquid only person....my mum got me onto it. I think Iceland do some fab deals atm especially Capri-suns for kids pack up-10 for £1.69 thats fab and also Daz etc much cheaper
    As for smart price etc I ALWAYS buy their biscuits,nappy bags,toilet cleaner and fab softener as they are all good.

    I also buy this washing up liquid from Iceland, Its called 'Easy' and you get two 650ml bottles in a pack for a £1 and it lasts ages!
    It bubbles up well, not 'false economy' like some cheaper brands where you end up squirting half the bottle in the sink!

    Trinidadone - Iceland dont have a value range but just generally do good offers on things - the only thing to watch out for is all their prices are whole numbers ie £1 £2 etc so you can end up paying more for some things that would probably be cheaper elsewhere (its easy to add up your shopping as you go along though lol)
