If I was writing this review a year ago, it would undoubtedly be a five-star affair filled with praise for Sainsbury’s commendable achievement in marketing an affordable alternative to the more expensive big-name cola brands, whilst skilfully avoiding the pit-falls that often make budget brands undrinkable. I’ve now long been over my once tragic cola addiction that lasted from about the age of four to sometime earlier this year, and as I couldn’t afford to be too picky with my choice of junk, these 34p bottles provided an excellent option to keep me from bankrupting myself with the slightly tastier but sadly far too expensive Coca-Cola and Pepsi, which commonly retailed .

My husband absolutely loves Coca-Cola and his addiction costs us a small fortune with a 2 litre bottle costing around £1.80 now and as he can get through a few a week I decided it was time to force him to have something cheaper and just get on with drinking it. He can be quite a brand snob at times so I just ordered these with my online shop and pretended that they were out of stock of Coca-Cola. This product is available in a multipack of 6 x 330ml cans for £1.49 and a 2 litre bottle for 84p which is a considerable saving of almost £1 on the bottle and about £1.60 on the multipack, however, Coca-Cola is on special offer a lot more than these Sainsburys ones. ...

Ok, seeing as most people seem to turn their noses up at own brand products, I will now explain why you should not judge a cola by its label... ~ Is it ACTUALLY a bargain? ~ Let's be honest here, the real reason you would choose this over another Cola product is because of the price... you can either buy Coca Cola for £1.78 per 2l bottle (£0.09 per unit) or buy Sainsbury's Cola for £0.81 per 2l bottle (or 4p per unit). So, unless it tastes so vile I can't possibly drink it, Sainsbury's Cola is already onto a winner in my eyes! ~ I bet it tastes horrible though... ~ It's fizzy (sometimes little TOO fizzy if it's ...

I tend to drink a fair amount of coke (either Coca Cola or Pepsi usually) and this habit is starting to bulk the shopping bill up quite a lot. I can't bring myself to sample the delights (or otherwise!) of the Basic cola, as for a bargain basement price of around 18p it's found to taste something like brown-coloured water! As a compromise between that and the brand names, I discovered Sainsburys Classic Cola. With it being an own brand but not a Basics offering, I was hopeful that it would save money without being too different to my preferred brands. This particular week, I bought a four-pack for something in the region of £2.80, which I thought was pretty good value ... Read the complete review

I'm not a coke/cola guzzler at the best of times - but I do buy some when I need a mixer for parties - or my partner and I decide we want to tipple some Jack Daniels. There may be some out there that say putting cola into J.D. is a crying shame - but I just can't drink it neat. I used to drink coke as a kid and now I watch other kids drink gallons of the stuff (more than we ever got our hands on). The reason I like Sainsbury's Classic Cola is that it seems to have less chemicals in it than other own supermarket brands. I will go a long way to avoid aspartame - and Sainsbury's has been the only supermarket, for many years, that has avoided ... Read the complete review
