I had a real chocolate need on Friday, so I went to Sainsburys and got a couple of bars. I thought I would try their basic chocolate as it costs just 27p, so I thought if it was good, it would save me a lot of money. I did buy some cadburys as a back up though in case it was horrible. The packaging is that awful orange and white stuff, but it was only for me so I wasn't too bothered. The look of the chocolate was a bit confusing, as it looked more like dark chocolate, and I thought I had got the wrong bar, but I checked and it was definitely milk chocolate. The taste of this chocolate was really disgusting, I tried 3 pieces and I had to ... Read the complete review

** Sainsbury's Basics Milk Chocolate ** On a quick trip around the supermarkets I'm forever throwing the odd cheap bit of chocolate in the trolley. Asda, Tesco, Sainsburys it doesn't matter -I am helpless to avoid that terrible urge to take a stroll down the sweets and confectionery isle. There is something fun about being able to justify buying something that you don't need and isn't very good for your diet with those magical words "but it's under 30p". When I'm in Sainsbury's its usually the home brand basics range of sweets that get tossed into the trolley as additional extras. I flit between the gums, hard sweets, buttons and the ...

~~~PACKAGING~~~ Sainsbury's Milk chocolate is packaged in thin aluminium foil before being wrapped in a cheap looking white paper wrapper with minimal writing on. It has a commendable stylish font on the front to label it as Sainsbury's brand. Whilst other brands such as Emergency Chocolate also have a simplistic exterior, Sainsbury's milk chocolate looks cheap and tacky... but does its looks reflect its taste? ~~~APPEARANCE TASTE AND TEXTURE~~~ Unwrapping the layers of tackiness, we reach a chocolate bar that is weirdly cut and moulded. It is not in blocks, but these round hump like things joined together with a striped pattern over the top. You ... Read the complete review

I am forever feasting on cheap chocolate. Usually I plump for the Tesco bars of chocolate which are about 25 pence for a bar. A bar usually does me for a week, if you have two or three pieces a day. Surprisingly, the cheaper chocolate bars have impressed me, not just in the price stakes but in the taste stakes too. The Sainsbury's version is another worthy entry to the cheap chocolate field. A regular sized bar, the milk chocolate is certainly on a par with the Tesco bar. Despite the rather bland packaging, it comes out with high marks on the inside. A smooth looking of chocolate, which can easily be broken into segments. The bar does have indentations on it, ... Read the complete review

I've really taken to the Sainsburys Basics range, and thought that I would expand my shopping from just the trusted essentials to a few treats as well, so I decided to grab myself a bar of their basics milk chocolate and see if it was any good . At 27p for a 100g bar, it's certainly cheap - miles cheaper than buying the same amount of chocolate would be in my corner shop . The packaging wasn't too inspiring though, being the standard bland orange and white colour that the Basics range is known for . Not interesting, but at least recognisable, and it did contain all the relevant nutrition and ingredient information . The nutritional info, rather than ... Read the complete review
