    The value things we like are Cheddar Cheese, Digestives and chocolate digestives, jaffa cakes, caramel wafers, mushy peas, tomatoes, fruit cocktail, (for triffles) sweet & sour sauce, pasta sauce, mayo, porridge oats, we buy these every month, if I think of any more I'll post again

  • I rate value biological washing powder.

    Obviously no good if you need non-bio, but otherwise it's great - and I still only use a half measure! It gets stuff perfectly clean.

    I do use branded fabric conditioner (whatever is on offer) but that's my compromise.
  • i only buy smart price chicken breasts. A chicken is a chicken so i can't see it makes much difference.

    Mmmm last week I got Tesco value liver and bacon pate....it is LUSH!!!

    It's only about 30p and is much nicer than any other pate I've ever tasted in my life! Delish on wholemeal toast.

    I'm drooling thinking about it now,yum yum.......

    Fantastic thread.

    I love SP Tuna, I can't tell the difference between this and john west.

    Tesco Value biscuits are the best, could eat some ginger nuts right now. :rotfl:

    Also value natural yoghurt, ideal for making smoothies.

    value tortillas and peanuts are really nice for munching on.

    i use to be a food snob and only eat branded items, now i don't care as it all generally tastes teh same. :j

    i only buy smart price chicken breasts. A chicken is a chicken so i can't see it makes much difference.

    I think the difference is possibly from the chicken's point of view.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'd always thought that *value meat* was either from animals subjected to lower welfare standards, or imported (which can often mean the same thing).
