Tesco Value Food Bags
Advantages: Nice size, good value
When it comes to cupboard staples, food bags are something that you will always find stuffed in my cupboards. There are many uses for these versatile bags. The brand I'm using at the moment is these food bags from the Tesco Value range.
I have a stash of both Asda and Tesco food bags in the cupboard as I seem to buy them even when I don't need them! These Tesco Value food bags cost me around the 50-55p mark for 50 food bags altogether.
The bags come on one big roll, like bin bags do, and you simply pull the end bag away from the roll and tear it away from the next bag. The packaging also contains 50 ties, these are all connected and just a simple tug will release each individual tie, these are made from plastic. I never use the ties and usually opt to knotting the food bag if I need to tie it up so they are quite useless for me.
The bags themselves are quite thin, although they are thin they still hold food well. They are approximately 25cm x 31cm so quite big for what they are. I've found that they can hold a whole sandwich (without being halved) and still be tied up at the top keeping sandwiches fresh.
My main use for the food bags are keeping things fresh in the fridge, sticking a packet of ham keeps so much nicer in a food bag than in nothing and it fits in the bag with ease. They also get used a lot for picnics and packed lunches. I've also used the bags for other non-food related things too, I keep all of my personal hair bands in one so that they are separated from my daughters hair pieces. I keep a couple of tea lights in one upstairs. The list of things these food bags can be used for is endless!
I'd definitely recommend these food bags if you are looking for something to keep food fresh, they are strong and have a nice size. The price is great for the quality of the Tesco value bags.
