Advantages: The PRICE!
Disadvantages: The taste isn't AMAZING.
I have been buying this particular brand of coleslaw for a few years now. The main motivation behind my repeat purchasing is the price - at 20p for a 250g pot you'd be hard pushed to find a cheaper coleslaw product.
This item can be found in the chilled section at most Asda stores. The packaging is distinctly basic. It comes in a plastic green and white pot. However I don't think that this is important - it's the product inside that counts!

******************** Taste ********************
This product is made from a combination of cabbage, carrot and onion in a mayonnaise dressing. You do occasionally find green pieces of cabbage within this product - which I avoid eating, but in the main part it is quite a nice product.
Obviously this in not the most luxurious coleslaw you will ever taste, but personally I like the consistency - it isn't too creamy - like other coleslaw products that are available on the market - and it is quite crunchy to eat. You can taste a hint of mustard within the mayonnaise dressing, but it isn't too overpowering, so don't worry if you're not a mustard fan.
I am very wary about calorie content when it comes to coleslaw because some products are very fatty, however with this item you will consume 82 calories per 1/3 pack which I think is more than acceptable.
I won't lie to you, this product doesn't taste amazingly fabulous, but I find that it makes a more than adequate addition to a summer salad and for 20p per pot you really can't go wrong!
Four out of five stars.
