Nothing beats a good bowl of porridge in the morning (or any time of day, really). I remember having it for my evening meal many times as a student. It is especially enjoyable on cold winter mornings and heats you right up. Many brands sell porridge oats at (once you look at it) ridiculous prices. All you need are the basic Tesco Value (now rebranded as 'Everyday Value') oats. I know some people are put off by value brands thinking they are a compromise on quality and in some cases that is true. However, this is not the case with these oats. They cook and taste like any other oats on the market yet at a fraction of the cost. They take only a ... Read the complete review

When I was a little girl my mother used to give me porridge oats and I always remember her doing it in a pan and serving it to me especially on cold frosty mornings, it used to fill me up and satisfy me. I always liked it but did not realise why she gave me it at the time because I was a child but I have learned since it is because it can fill you up and be healthy at the same time and most of all it is a very cheap breakfast cereal, but this brand is even cheaper because it is a Value range from Tesco. Years ago in the 1960s when I was growing up they did not have lower brands they only kind of had the well known ones and from what my mother has ... Read the complete review

I have been a fan of porridge since childhood and always have some in my store cupboard. I usually have two packs though: Scott's Porage Oats for breakfast and Tesco Value for baking with. I have never tried making a bowl of porridge with the value range, I just can't help thinking it wouldn't be the same. Tesco Value Porridge Oats come in the well known value colours of red, white and blue. The last time I bought a 1kg bag it cost around 60p, which is amazing value. I always snip off a small corner at the top, when opening them. I try to take off just enough to let them pour out easily, but try to keep them as airtight as possible. The bag is ...

*PRODUCT* 1kg bag of basic porridge oats. No stupid ingredients. Stored in a strong plastic bag. *PRICE* Currently they are sold at 99p. Most own brand cereals are sold less than £1 which I like very much because these cereals last a long time. I used to buy brand cereals and spend £2-£2.90 on a 375-500g box that lasted me a week, and there is only two of us in the house! This £1, 1kg bag lasts us about 3 weeks. *HOW IT WORKS FOR ME* Based on 50g of porridge per person. This porridge can be made with water or milk, it primarily suggests water but that made me feel sick! I have always made porridge with milk. The heating ... Read the complete review

I am a keem fan of porridge and have always like the Quaker brand but thought I would have a little change. I decided to purchase a 1kg bag of tesco value porridge oats which cost me only 60p yes 60p for the bag. I have always been a great believer that all natural food comes from the same source, the only difference being the quality may not be as good because of the difference in price. In all honesty I have found that the price difference is normally due to reputable brand names such as Quaker. Quaker oats for the same package size are over £1 more expensive so I had everything to gain from trying the tesco brand. I found the quality ... Read the complete review
