The only thing I don't like are the cornflakes. I think I've tried pretty much everything else except for the ready meals as I like to cook and don't have a microwave. The way things are atm pretty much if it isn't Smartprice I don't buy it. I was reading the Tesco Value thread earlier though and would agree that mixing half and half can be great with things like the washing powder and some cereals. I do it with the shower gel and shampoo too and buy seperate toothpaste-Smartprice for night, branded for morning as I like something really minty and fresh before I leave the house. It may only save a few pennies but they all add up
I am not keen on the forzen veg and prefer the asda value range of that. The salad chees is lovely just like feta! The mixed pack of biscuits are fine. The yoghurts are nice too have tried the fromage frais, choc mouse and creme caramel all nice!
I did a side-by-side test of the mozzarella recently and preferred the smart price one! Potatoes good; onions good-- only difference with onions is that they are small so a bit of a pita if you're cooking something that needs loads, on the other hand quite handy if you only need half a one. Think the peppers are great value, but I try to use them up quickly as they seem to go soft faster than regular ones.
you might not see this since no1's posted since Monday but DON'T buy spartprice frozen mince whatever you do!!!! Buy the fresh stuff, the frozen has a funny taste to it IMO. whereas the fresh is good for lasagne, spag bol, mince n onions, chilli, shepherds pie etc etc
Asda smartprice frozen cauliflower is fantastic, I have no idea why it's as cheap as it is, I honestly can't see a difference between it and other cauli (I use it as a mash potato substitute and get through shedloads, so price is an issue...)
SP tinned toms are fine if watery - would go for whole plum rather than chopped - SP scotch pancakes and own-brand cocopops are eaten without complaint by MrsFussypants DD, so they must be nice!
we too smart price everything if poss apart from ready meals and meat. All fine especially the choclate covered biscuits, chewy bars. One thing i would point out is that tesco value washing powder which is DIRT CHEAP is in fact made by Jeyes (you know, of Jeyes Liquid) and therefore is actually a very highly researched and tested product. So dont be put off by the fact that it says Tesco , the product itself is actually top notch.
