Advantages: Extremely tasty and full of vitamins
This review looks at Tesco Corn Flakes and as breakfast is the most important meal of the day, I always ensure I have a good supply of cereals in my kitchen cupboard.
The box I am reviewing is 750g in weight and is extremely eye-catching with a large bowl of milk-soaked cornflakes dominating the majority of the front of the packaging. There is an image of a glass of orange juice and plate of mouth-watering buttered toast.
Above the bowl of cornflakes is a large red square with the Tesco logo and the words "Corn Flakes" in large white lettering.
In the top right hand corner is a green circle with the image of a person leaping and the wording "Fortified with vitamins and iron". The lower part of the box states that the cereal is a source of folic acid and provides you with nutritional information, which I will provide at the end of this review. The rear of the packaging is identical to that of the front and the information relating to the product is located on the side.
As for the cereal - I have been buying Tesco Corn Flakes for as long as I can remember and my husband and I tend to alternate between these and wheat biscuits. We simply cannot tell the difference between the Tesco brand and the leading brand, as they look and taste identical.
I'm sure everyone knows the taste and look of a corn flake, but I will assume that you don't. The corn flakes are a rusty/orange looking colour and are toasted flakes of corn. Whilst you can choose to add fruit or natural yoghurt, both my husband and I prefer to cover them with semi-skimmed milk and a sprinkling of sugar. I prefer to eat mine as soon as I've added the milk as they are lovely and crispy, but my husband enjoys his after the milk has soaked into the corn flakes, thus making them quite soggy.
The corn flakes are contained within a plastic wrapping, which I find always rips no matter what brand of cereal you buy. In order to keep the cereal fresh and crispy, I use a household peg to keep the packet closed.
The corn flakes are extremely good as they contain the fibre, vitamins and minerals that are essential for a healthy diet.
I have checked the brand name corn flakes and made a comparison against Tesco corn flakes. Whilst the information I have obtained from the internet advises that the nutritional values are based on an average serving, the information on the Tesco box in relation to a 30g serving slightly differs.
However, I will detail the nutritional information in respect of the Tesco brand based on an average serving, which is slightly more than 30g:-
9 g of sugar
2 g of fat
2 g of saturates
0.7 g of salt
The information is somewhat similar to that of the leading brand, but the calories and sugar are slightly higher with the Tesco brand. However, the Tesco brand gives 1g lower fat content per average serving.
Whilst these corn flakes do not contain nuts, Tesco cannot guarantee that they are nut free. The corn flakes are suitable for vegetarians and the box can be recycled once empty.
Tesco Corn Flakes are available in most Tesco stores and cost 94p for a 500g box and £1.20 for a 750g box. This is significantly lower than the leading brand who charge £2.24 for a 750g box.
I would highly recommend Tesco Corn Flakes, as in my opinion, they taste no different to the leading brand. Consequently, they receive 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
Summary: A great tasting cereal that is as good as the leading brand
