I bought these yesterday for a picnic to a National Trust Property. I was expecting them to be rubbish but they were fine!
The children even said how nice they were and were perfectly content with them along side their cheese and salad sandwiches I had made from homemade bread grin
I was pleased as each pack only contains 18g rather then 25g which they didn't even notice. We don't have crisps at home so they were still a treat!
While I was in the shop I compared them to the Tesco own brand version but in the coloured pack and these seemed slightly 'healthier' in that they seemed to have less fat and salt. There always seems to be the assumption that the very cheap stuff is more unhealthy but it's not always the case.

I also bought the Tesco Jaffa Cakes for 50p for 12. They were just as good as the original Jaffa cakes, there were only 11 in the pack though...angry

The bag of crisps will last us three picnics as we are family of four...not bad for 66p grin

We plan on doing plenty of picnics this summer so I'm trying to make the treaty bits as inexpensive as possible for anything that I don't usually buy organic or I don't make myself.

To make myself clear, the Everyday Value crisps seemed 'healthier' then the Tesco ready salted Crisps in the coloured pack which are £1.29 for six packs.

They do a mixed bag of ready salted, salt and vinegar and cheese and onion flavoured as well.

Even the tesco everyday value cheese and tomato pizza are healthier than the normal expensive ones as they have less ingredients and less of the preservatives. My daughter prefers these to the more expensive ones.

That's good to know cece thank you!

yas I have rather made a rod for my own back, the only pizza my children will eat is the one I make and won't have ANY shop ones.

Sainsburys own brand cereal bars are about 65p for 6. Perfectly nice!

Tesco value 500g cornflakes are lovely and only 31p.

MinimalistMommi Sat 27-Jul-13 17:30:33

pan my DD has been having those cereal bars for months, they're good value!

Morrisons Savers tortilla chips, 23p a 100g packet and nicer than Doritos which are about eight times the price!

They also seem to have fewer added ingredients than the big name brand versions.

Pantone363 Sat 27-Jul-13 17:39:09

500g cornflakes for 31p shock no way!!!

MinimalistMommi Sat 27-Jul-13 17:52:40

We don't have a Morrisons sad that is a great price snazzy

I got some similar, maybe slightly more expensive (77p I think) 12 pack of ready salted crisps at Sainsburys and they were nice too. It was their white and orange coloured packaging budget range.Will try the Tesco ones too now. Thanks OP.

I buy the Asda smart price crisps multipack of 12 for about 46p (I think). They're perfectly edible and I like the fact that they're smaller bags (18g) than branded ones, so DS gets a bag of crisps but not a huge amount. They only come in ready salted though. They don't do value ones at the little Tesco near me but if I ever go to a larger branch I'll pick up a mixed multipack. smile

Just seen the price of the cornflakes! Think I'll give them a try - at 31p if they're disgusting I'll just use them to make cornflake buns grin.

Love your username soft
Jealous of your 46p crisps, we don't have an Asda where I live.

YoungJoseph Mon 29-Jul-13 22:14:40

Yup those crisps are the best I have eaten for ages!
You can taste that they are not too salty, they are light and crisp with just enough flavour. They just like crisps used to be before they became gourmet, in huge foil packets that lasts for ever. There are a few duds in there but again just how they used to be.
The smaller packet size suits us as well.

Tesco Value shortbread is horrible! Tried it while camping, won't be buying those again!

Tesco crisps as above - lovely
Tesco EV biscuits - same as branded to me smile
Tesco EV Squash - orange & blackcurrant - both good -
Tesco EV 'Coco Snaps' cereal - no difference to coco pops imkidsho
Tesco EV Cornflakes? - sorry, couldn't abide them, soggy and flavourless.
Tesco EV 'cheese spread' - fab
Tesco EV Orange Juice & Apple Juice ( in cartons from fridge ) - great
Tesco EV scotch eggs - absolutely fine, not remotely grim meat/taste wise!
Tesco EV Chicken Korma - for a ready meal - ( about 95p) fine..

I lied about the Asda crisps, they're actually 66p for a pack of 12, sorry blush. Still cheap though...
