I bought these for 39p for the pack of 12 but they do come in triple packs although am unsure of the price. The box is a fairly simple design, bright orange cardboard box with white writing and picture of said jaffa cakes. They are ok for vegetarians too I noticed. Inside you find a cellophane wrapped, brown plastic ridged tray full of jaffa cakes. As for the product itself, I bought them as I did not want to pay the premium brands price for something that husband eats like toffees when they are in the house. I think they are a very good imitation of the real deal, the orangey bit is lovely and sweet with a slight tang of orange, the sponge is as ... Read the complete review

I like a little of something sweet, that said it is rare we buy anything like cakes and biscuits so when I went shopping the other week as the walking wallet I through these in the trolley while the girlfriend wasn't watching. I love Jaffa Cakes but who wants to pay the prices they charge now a days? They are so expensive when you compare them to the cost of these, the supermarkets own version. I opted for the cheap version with a what's the worst that can happen attitude. These come in a bright orange box, very eye-catching. There is a picture of the cakes on the front and they look exactly like their expensive ... Read the complete review

I'm a snob, a bit off a toff, only the best Jaffa cakes for me. Surely the only ones worthy enough for me are the original McVities Jaffa Cake. I did fancy some snacks though, but horrors upon horrors Asda had no McVities! They did have some of their own though and I did fancy something tasting of our orange, and at 75p I didnt think I'd lose that much. (I'm not sure the absence of the Mcvities wasnt a ploy to make you buy their own!) You get 12 in a packet and the first thing you will notice is that they are slightly smaller than McVities (and no, I'm not going to measure them) Another thing you might notice is that the sponge base in these is a darker golden ...

I am a fan of Jaffa cakes and i would usually prefer to buy a top name brand but as asda own brand product have proven themselves a very good alternative lately so i thought i'd give them a go. I do agree that with most food products you can't beat the top name brands for quality and with some products the quality of the item can be comprimised when you buy store own brands as you only pay a fraction of the price but Asda Jaffa Cakes are delicious they have all the quality and flavour of the big brands but an Asda price tag. They come in both 12's and 24's. I honestly believe you can't tell the difference between the asda brand and the top name ... Read the complete review

I bought a pack of these at the weekend for 39p and I know you get what you pay for, but I was actually pretty impressed with the quality of the jaffa cakes for that price. One comparison I would make is with the extra value Sainsburys and Tesco Jaffa cakes which are around the same price but have awful packaging, the cheap packaging immediately puts me off wanting to eat the product as I then associate it as being cheap and nasty. With these Jaffa cakes the packaging is reasonable an orange box, the jaffa cakes are slightly smaller than the Mcvitie brand but 12 cakes for 39p is a bargain and they do taste orangey, the sponge is decent enough the ...
