Tesco Value Paper Plates.
My family and I frequently go out on day trips, and in order to save a bit of money I tend to make up a picnic, rather than pay out on extortionately over inflated food. Many tourist attractions tend to take advantage of the fact that you either don't know the surrounding area or are unable to exit the facility to gain access to more reasonably priced food. Having two boys who seem to be constantly hungry this can become unimaginably expensive and quickly, giving us less money to spend on souvenirs and gifts.
Well my oldest son finds eating outside on the floor or on a bench easy, not necessarily needing a plate, but for my youngest having plates helps immensely, if he has his own plate he is less likely to take a bite of something and place it back into the lunch box. Also I prefer to use a plate especially for salads and the like. I have in the past taken plastic plates and don't get wrong they did great and are practical and even eco-friendly, which is an added bonus, but when shopping in Tesco the other week, I saw these and thought that they would be great because I could completely dispose of them at the end of the picnic allowing me to stow the cooler bag away, and although not as environmentally friendly or frugal as plastic plates, the lure of practicality and ease got the better of me. There is also Tesco value plastic cutlery and plastic cups all of which are great value and enhanced our picnic.
The plates would also be great for parties or barbeques, making clean up so much simpler...no washing up...how cool is that! You can simply through them into a black bag and job done. These are recyclable which is great. And my kids can confirm their usefulness as a craft accessory. We have made clocks and masks using these and have also used them as a palette to hold paints and the kids have loved it. In fact my youngest still walks around wearing his mask that is covered in coloured feathers...lol!
These are from the Tesco frugal everyday value range and cost me £1.20 for fifty plates which I consider to be absolutely amazing value for money. They are 22cm in diameter which is an adequate size and are white so should you have a colour scheme for a party these will not clash. They are good quality but I do think the card is a little on the thin side but this does not detract from the overall use of the product and I found them to be perfectly acceptable for what I needed. The only problem I found is than my youngest son found it difficult to carry the plate without spilling the food so I was required to move the plate for him but this was no real problem once he was settled and eating.
Overall these plates were great for the price and I will definitely be re-purchasing these. I was very impressed with both the product and the price. I would definitely recommend these plates.
Summary: A practical and cheap disposable paper plate.
