Value cornflakes, still stocked at my local though price seems to increase all the time now 45p per 750g. Also my favourite.
Thanks for your reply - so not just me then, will give Morrisons value ones a try instead.
Now there was me thinking that they'd been created in a lab
Mornflake oats out of home bargains is superb. £1 for 1kg.
I don't know about Tesco but Asda have stopped putting the plastic lid on the cheap yoghurt it's well annoying,I must admit I pick one off of another tub and put it on mine.
It used to be lovely, full of ham & cheese, etc. And had a nice texture and cooked lovely.
We had one after the rebranding, and it was like eating a bag of onions, and hardly and meat in it.
After I asked if they had changed the recipe, it took them a week to answer, and the response was 'yes, we have added onions, changed the cheese and added more ham'
I replied, 'If I wanted a quiche with a lot of onions, I would have bought a cheese & onion one' . The didn't reply to that one.
It looks like they might be discontinuing their Prawn Crackers too (red bag for a quid). They had a ton of new brand looking 50p ones in the clear bags on the shelf this morning.
What is happening to the place? It hasn't half gone downhill.......
comping = nowt more thrillin' than winnin':T :j
Not as nice in my opinion.
I tend to get Waitrose oats, which are more expensive as you might expect, but good quality. When I'm feeling flush they also sell Flahavans jumbo organic oats, and a kilo bag lasts me some time and the quality and size really makes a difference for some recipes.
I thought everyone knew these companies on the ex-value range are all completely fictitious....it is a little misleading but really I am sure we have bigger things to worry about...
I also think you sometimes have to bear in mind as living costs are generally more expensive as a rule, sometimes keeping the cost the same is as good as a reduction and its reflected with the quality of food within the products.
That some people on here are looking at tesco value products and complain the company care about price and not quality is hilarious mind. A) as a supermarket they are there to make money and b) its the value range.....if you are buying finest and its a load of rubbish, then complaining about the quality is fair cop. My outlook with the value stuff is to try it, if its rubbish then I try the next one up....most of it is fine for the money you pay.
Personally I never found it even remotely embarrassing walking out with value products in my trolley. What I would have found embarrassing was walking out with exactly the same product at more than 4 times the price.
Between this and their removal of best before dates they are not doing themselves any favours. This actually amused me because when Aldis opened up near here a couple of years ago one of the reasons I was reluctant to buy their fruit & veg was that I was unsure of their stock rotation capabilities because they didn't have dates on their products. They do now.
I know that my local Tescos stock rotation "is less than optimal" (carp in other words) & now they have removed the best before dates. I assume the number on the packaging is a packing date which someone knows the meaning of. So when a bin has 4 of those numbers in which product do you pick? Yes the one from Aldi.
Definitely something fishy going on there ! :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:
Seriously though - Tesco must be laughing all the way to the bank, they can get rid of stuff near its best before date without having to reduce it, and claim that they're acting 'responsibly' by stopping consumers from throwing out fruit and veg just because of the date :mad:
