      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good product for a good price

      I bought strawberries from Sainsbury's the other day as there were also some other brand strawberries for sale and these looked better. They were also half the price. A 250g box cost only £1, but this is on offer. I am unsure of the full price as it was not shown. A 400g box of other brand cost £3. There are around 20-25 strawberries in the 250g box, and for a £1 I think this is a good number.

      There were a few strawberries that were a little dark, out of shape of a little sour, but 80% of the box were sweet and a good quality. There is also the advantage they were English Strawberries, grown in Staffordshire.

      The packaging is a simple re-sealable clear plastic box, which is good for taking a few and putting back in the fridge.

      This product is not something I buy a lot of, only occasionally during the summer. However, I would buy these again at this price and quality, but it would depend on the full price if the offer is taken off.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A regular on my shopping list.

        I buy these lemons on a regular basis. I mainly use them to make a glass of water a bit more interesting, but do sometimes use them in cooking too.

        This bag of 4 lemons costs around 80p, which I think is great value for money. A bag of 4 organic lemons costs about £1.60, so it's a good way to save money. I know that a lot of people only buy organic, and I do try when I can, but I find organic produce from the supermarkets to be very expensive, and not a huge amount better.

        I would say the lemons you get in this pack are average in size, they are never huge, but never really tiny. They are always good quality too. They seem to last a good couple of weeks in the fridge.

        I am no lemon connoisseur so I couldn't say how great the quality of the actual lemon is, but to me they are very sharp like they should be and they have a firm skin and are easy to cut into wedges or slices. They always do the job I require them for, so they are perfect for me. I have never had any issues with these lemons, and will continue to buy them.

        I would definitely recommend this product.

        nice juicy and tasty strawberries

        I don't normally buy strawberries as they are normally quite expensive and don't last long in our house.

        Not sure if the picture is the same ones as i got but the ones i bought were Sainsbury's brand but not the basics range and were 227g they were £1.99 but on buy one get one free which i thought was a good deal, I wouldn't pay £1.99 for one tub of them.

        I go through stages of liking strawberries and hating them but these were really juicy and tasty.

        The packaging is quite simple, clear plastic box with a re-sealable plastic lid (which didn't even get chance to close after they had been opened). I wasn't counting but for me there didn't seem like a great quantity in the box, I expected more for £1.99

        The second box i got I didn't eat straight away i left them for a day or two and when i came to eat them a couple of the strawberries were 'furry' although still in date, so I was a bit put off by that.

        All in all though i would buy them again but only while they are on offer,for me they are still expensive for what they are.
