“ Brand: Asda / Type: Flakes „
At the moment I'm staying at my best mates pub. I don't get up till late so usually miss breakfast which means that of late I have been missing out on meals and I really do love eating a good breakfast so the other day I purchased these cos when I spotted them costing £1.18 I thought they offered really good value for money against my preferred option of Kellogg's Honey Nut Cornflakes and I do like to save money on groceries when possible!
Yellow square box and on the front of it there is a picture of a bowl of the honey nut corn flakes and on the front of it I am told that they are indeed Asda Honey Nut Corn Flakes and that they contain no artificial colours, flavours or hydrogenated fat and that they do contain added Vitamin D and Iron, there is an at a glance nutritional chart on there and the size is stated which is 500g (in this case). Other information listed on the box includes ingredients and allergy advice being given, a full nutritional chart is shown, as are contact details for Asda. It's a nice enough looking box and inside the flakes are sealed within a white coloured plastic bag.
The Honey Nut Flakes:
Nobbly looking golden flakes that have a slightly sweet aroma to them, these flakes are made up in the main from maize, brown sugar, peanuts and honey. They are suitable for Vegetarians too!
They are crispy/crunchy and don't go one bit soggy when milk is added which I do appreciate highly as a pet hate of mine is soggy cereal! They are very sweet however with a slight peanut/nutty taste to them and are very, very sweet indeed. Sadly for me though although they really are crunchy and don't go soggy they are a bit too sweet, don't taste of honey much and I can only just detect a nutty taste going on mainly due to the texture of them.
The flakes of these, for me lack the thickness of Kellogg's Honey Nut Cornflakes and therefore simply lose a bit of the quality I am used to but all in all they're not bad just not as nice as the leading brand...but far cheaper.
These are ok but I just can't rave about them sadly!
Nutritional Information Per 50g Serving With 125ml Semi-skimmed milk
Saturated Fat: 1.6g
Only available in Asda stores and a box of 500g costs £1.18 and a box of 750g, £1.54
ASDA Honey Nut Cornflakes are just as moreish as their more expensive Kelloggs counterpart.
They are delicious. I buy the 750g box every week and they never last past three days. I love them, my kids love them and my husband loves them. They are always the first cereal to be used up. They have a lovely sweet peanutty flavour which is not overly sweet. They maintain their crispness in ice cold milk well and don't go soggy quickly. They are not as thin as other honey nut cornflakes I have tried.
A 30g serving (anyone who can stop at this much must have the willpower of a saint!) with 125ml of semi-skimmed milk is 178kcals. This means they can even be enjoyed if following the cereal diet of a bowl for lunch and a bowl for breakfast. Obviously they contain peanuts so are unsuitable for anyone with a peanut allergy.
Value for Money
ASDA Honey Nut Cornflakes cost £1.75 for a 750g box or £1.18 for 500g, this is around £1 a box cheaper than Kelloggs Crunchy Nut and I think I actually prefer the ASDA version. They offer very good value for money.
These are so yummy it's hard to stop eating them. I am planning on making some chocolate crispy cakes with them if I ever get time before they are all eaten up. Highly recommended.
