With money tight and family budgets reduced, many consumers have turned towards store-brand products over big name brands; in paticular, the budget varities of afore mentioned store-brand products. But I am here to warn you that there are sometimes reasons why such products are so cheap. Because they contain no ingredients of any substance or flavour perhaps? Sainsburys Basics Cola is one of the worst own brand carbonated beverages I have ever tasted and thus is a prime example why some of these value ranges are probably best avoided by anybody with any sense of taste! For starters, it tastes of....well...nothing actually. It is kind of ... Read the complete review

Now that my exams are looming ever closer, I have decided to stock up on fizzy drinks, sweets and generally nice tasting things to keep me going during revision. I opted for this Sainsbury's Basics Cola mainly because of the price and because I have never tried it before. --- The Bottle --- You get 2 litres of the Diet Cola from the Sainsbury's basics range for only 17p, which is quite a bargain. It comes in a large see through plastic bottle that is 32cm tall and 8cm in diameter. Wrapper around the middle of it is a simple white and orange label that matches the rest of the Sainsburys Basics range. The front of it has the name of the product and a ... Read the complete review

I have been trialing all of the cheaper options this past month in terms of cola and the next on my list to try was this one by Sainsburys Basics range. It isn't a supermarket that I regularly shop in but I don't mind going in there the odd time and this 2 litre bottle was so cheap, I wanted to know if it was any good. I have tried stuff from the Basics range before and it wasn't bad but that was household goods never anything in terms of food and drink but I am always open to new things on my shopping list. PACKAGING The packaging on this drink looks pretty much like everything from the Basics range. It has a white label on it with orange and then ... Read the complete review

We've just recently had a large house party, and as such we had lots of drinks and cocktails flowing all night. I did want to try and keep the food and drink costs down slightly as they were in danger of spiralling out of all control, and so in the weeks beforehand I was trying out cheaper versions of various products. One of the products that I tried was the Sainsburys Basics Diet Cola. After previously trying the Sainsburys Basics Diet Lemonade and finding this a more than acceptable alternative at a fraction of the price of the branded lemonades I decided to give the basics diet cola a go as well. I would normally buy either Diet Coca Cola or ... Read the complete review

I've recently been trying a few different brands of cola to see if there really is much difference between the various brands. To be honest, in many cases I have found that there isn't a vast difference. With this one, it wasn't as close to the real thing as I would have liked it to be however. The bottle itself is a two litre clear plastic bottle with a white and orange label on it, signifying that it is a Sainsburys value brand. I found that this product was fairly easy to identify and the writing on the bottle was easy enough to read. The fact that they only do this in a diet variety was somewhat strange but I felt this didn't really truly make much ... Read the complete review
