I bought a tin of this last weekend as i fancied something sweet but was strapped for cash until payday and didn't want to waste money on non essential food. I picked this particular 390g tin of custard, Sainsbury's Basic, due to the price; just 25p - a whole 50p cheaper than Ambrosia, my usual favourite brand of custard. If i was purposely looking to buy the most attractive tin of custard on the shelf, this would be my last choice; it's very basic. It's in the usual sainsbury's basic product style and consists of a silver metal/allumenium tin (no ring pull, requires a tin opener), with a band of plastic paper wrapped around it, with the sainsburys basic ...

I usually purchase the Sainsbury's basic instant custard sachets which are quick and easy to make, but unfortunately they had run out of the instant custard. So I picked up a tin of this Sainsbury's basics custard. Priced at only 25p for the tin, I thought this seemed slightly expensive compared to the sachet instant custard at only 9p per pack and makes up the same amount of custard. (Around ¾ of a pint of custard.) The tin was easy to open and the custard came out extremely easy, I just tipped it upside down side above the saucepan and out slid a tinned shape clump of thick custard. At this point it didn't look very appetising. After putting on a ... Read the complete review

My aunt brought a tin of this custard down on Christmas Eve because she only likes Xmas pudding when it's got custard on it and she knew we probably wouldn't have any because none of us really eat it. The label on the tin looks soooooo crap that I instantly disliked the custard and when I opened it with the tin opener (no ring pull here!!!) it looked gloopy and proper sticky inside the tin. I poured it into a saucepan and heated it up for my aunt because no way was I eating any, then I thought about it and added a couple of spoons on the side of my dish to try because I thought I might at least get a Dooyoo review out of it! lol It's not ...

I absolutely love custard and after enjoying the 7p Sainsbury's 'Basics' sachet of custard I tried a while back I decided to try the tin (already made up custard) for 25p a tin. I'd bought some sponge puddings and of course wanted this to drench all over them as I adore the stuff I was a bit worried as the sponge wernt cheap and I was concerned that this could ruin it...however I was really very wrong! The Packaging.... 39g can with a white and orange label to the front of it and on the front of that I'm told it is Sainsbury's 'Basics' Custard (small orange scribble of a jug pouring custard is on there), and I'm told it's 'No fuss custard' that ...

This can of Sainsbury's Custard, from its bargain basement "Basics" range, is supplied in a conventional tin can, containing 390g ( 14 ounces for the people like me who still deal in real money ), of product. The can is yours on handing over the princely sum of 25 pence to Messrs Sainsbury's ltd. So what do you get for your 25 pennies then? You get a typical Basics range, orange and white "Logoed"; can. The label contains large amounts of information, the type of which I generally ignore but which others find interesting and relevant. This includes Nutritional info - detailed below, Ingredients, and usage / heating ... Read the complete review
