When I told DH that Mumsnetters didnt believe him about the value cheese he said to tell you that a lot of italians buy Grano padano over Parmigiano as it is a lot less harsh and sometimes parmesan overpowers the dish.

Plain chocolate digestives
non-fragranced baby wipes (18p/packet!)
Tinned tomatoes

Stewing steak. Makes a great beef casserole (after 2hours in the oven). I think it's called Market Value.

CarGirl Sat 26-Feb-11 19:53:52

porridge oats,
basmati rice (although non-value is sometimes cheaper)

serin Sat 26-Feb-11 22:28:33

Ketchup
Apples
Ready salted crisps (the bags are tiny which suits me fine!).

Tesco value kitchen rolls and probiotic drinks

I think those are the only Value products I've tried tbh <is a closet snob>

Do the biscuits really taste as good as the more expensive ones?

PandaNot Sat 26-Feb-11 22:34:42

The chocolate digestives taste better than the 'real' ones.

privategodfrey Sat 26-Feb-11 22:39:12

Thanks PandaNot

I'll swallow my prejudice next time I'm in Tesco and give them a try. I'm a bit of a brand-name-whore and I need to cut back on my shopping bill.

Sainsbury Basics:

mozzarella
butter
Gran Padana
mature cheddar (for cooking - not so good for eating)
bananas
courgettes
peppers
kitchen towel
dishwasher tablets
ready meals (I know this may sound ridiculous, but at c. 75p per meal, they are fabulous value and the ones I've tried have been very good - and ingredients are great too - check them out)

Blimey, some of you are value experts!

Just thought of...
Tesco Value

Speckledeggy Sun 27-Feb-11 22:13:43

Flour

Speckledeggy Sun 27-Feb-11 22:22:40

Golden syrup

Fluffycloudland77 Mon 28-Feb-11 08:25:33

Just thought, asda and sains basic underarm roll on anti perspirent, the asda one stings but the sains doesn't and they keep you dry, I've not noticed as much White marks on my clothes either.

Smart price nappy bags, smart price disposable razors for legs etc.

And cat litter.

Waitrose essentials range baked beans. Better than Heinz!

Tobytyke Mon 28-Feb-11 11:37:11

Tesco Value Vegetable stock cubes just 10p per pack compared to £1.68 for the leading brand.

mummyosaurus Mon 28-Feb-11 11:44:04

I often buy the market value fruit and veg - if it's in season. Apples, pears and cabbage good at the moment.

I also love the box of 15 mixed size free range eggs, not sure they are labelled value, but they are keep and good.
