Tesco Value Food Bags
Advantages: keeps food fresh
Being on a bit of an economy drive at the moment, my husband and I decided a couple of months ago that we would both begin to take packed lunch to work daily rather than buying lunch out every day as this can be very expensive. My husband likes to take sandwiches or cobs for lunch and I needed something to wrap them in to keep them fresh. I was quite shocked when I first started looking at different sandwich bags in the shops as some can be rather expensive. As my husband has a plastic lunch box the sandwich bags didn't need to be anything fancy just something to help keep the bread from going stale. This is when I spotted the Tesco value sandwich bags in my local store and thought that they would be worth a try.
The bags are simple thin clear plastic bags that are wrapped together in a small roll and covered with a paper sleeve. Inside the roll there are a strip of plastic coated wire wraps that you can use to seal the bags once you have placed the contents inside. I know these type of bag seals can be a little fiddly compared to the more expensive bags which have self-seal strips but this did not concern me really as long as they seal in some way.
I paid just £0.60 for a roll of 50 bags. Each bag is 25.5cm x 31.5 cm so a fairly good size and plenty big enough to fit in a sandwich or a couple of filled rolls. The bags are not the strongest available but they do the job well if it is just to wrap something up to keep it fresh for a short time. I would not suggest using these bags for freezer bags they are just not strong enough. But I have used them to wrap a cake or couple of biscuits in and to place opened packets of cooked meats and cheese in to provide an extra barrier against the air getting to them and drying them out.
Overall I will certainly continue to buy these food bags they may not be the best quality but they do the job perfectly well for what I need them for and are great value.
Summary: great value food bags
