Tesco Golden Honey Puffs
Disadvantages: not as cheap as others, not too healthy
I love cereals and have recently again been trying various different ones. One of the cereals I've sampled is Tesco golden honey puffs.
This can be found in only in Tesco as it is specific to them however the equivalent can be found in other supermarkets such as Tesco. There are also similar cereals in branded names but you must be prepared to pay a lot more for them.
They can be found in the cereal aisle alongside the other Tesco cereals. These particular ones were right next to the honey nut cornflakes.
They come in one size of box. The box weighs 625g in total. This is quite a average for your typical cereal box as most usually weigh 500g! The price for the box of cereal is £1.65. In my opinion this is a decent price considering sometimes for a 500g you will be paying nearer £2 or more! Especially if it is a branded one! However most of the other Tesco cereals are cheaper than this one. Often there are offers on with the cereal but at the moment there are none on!
The box is actually not overly attractive however and wouldn't appeal to me at all if it wasn't for my brother wanting to sample it! It is predominantly blue in colour. The box is actually very cartoon like and looks fun for children however there are no cartoon characters or anything on it like many other cereals boxes, usually branded. The back of the packet gives all nutritional and ingredients information. This is set out well and is easy to read. There is often a competition on the back too or a promotion and information on how to contact Tesco if you have any problems with it. On the front there is all of the usual information containing product description and the brand name and product name. There is also a delicious looking picture of the products inside. The lovely image is of a bowl of the golden puff cereal. The bowl looks like it is generously filled and it is splashing with bright white milk. The picture is my favourite part of the box.
Inside the box, the cereal comes in a white plastic bag which is the same as some cereal bags. Nothing too special there! The bag is easy to open and the shredded wheat bite size can be tipped out very easily. Often at the bottom of the packet there are lots of crumbs but this for me is fab! There is a delicious sweet like smell to them which I wasn't expecting at all from a non branded product. The smell was actually really delicious and not too artifical like I would have thought it would be like. It smelled greatly of honey and was just all together really appealing. The bag didn't seem to be filled very full which makes the price seem not as good. I'd reckon it was just under three quarters of the way filled.
Pouring them in to the bowl, the milk pours over easily. It really didn't soak in too well though and it didn't mash up too easily. This isn't too good for me as I prefer mushed up cereal when it comes in this form. I always end up pouring even more milk over before mashing them down. Spooning some into my mouth the first thing I get is the taste. The taste was extremely sweet and actually caught the back of my throat at first. I definitely think it tasted slightly of golden syrup which for me and my brothers was great. They remained crunchy all the way through the bowl of cereal even on my last spoonful! I popped one of the [eices in my mouth straight from the packet and it was extremely crunchy! The crunchy texture was even stronger and so was the delicious sweet taste. The milk at the bottom of the bowl when I had finished had turned slight golden colour and sweet in taste and I loved drinking it all with a straw. Overall the taste of this cereal was lovely and for the price you cant really lose. I feel it was slightly nicer than the Asda version.
A recommended portion size is 30g with 125 ml of semi skimmed milk which will give you 170calories and 2.4g of fat. This is not too bad however I think I had about 200ml of milk and 40g cereal which bumps the calorie content etc up quite a bit! It's worth keeping this cereal for a treat!
