Sainsbury's Basics Corn Flakes Description: Cereals Anyone who regularly reads my reviews (many thanks, I really appreciate all reads, rates and comments!)) will know that I review a lot of products from the supermarket ranges which offer savings to customers by spending less on posh looking packaging. As we all know, the packaging just gets thrown away anyway so it makes sense not to spend extra on it.....and let's be honest, we all have better things to spend our hard earned cash on! I have recently started buying items from the Sainsbury's Basics range, whereas before, I admit that I passed them by, assuming that the cheap ... Read the complete review

I don't eat Cornflakes of any brand very often so when my granddaughter decided she wanted to make some chocolate cornflake cakes we had to pop to Sainsbury's to buy some, I had planned to buy Kellogg's as these are obviously the cream of the crop but they were irritatingly on special offer so the shelves were bare of this top brand apart from some absolutely massive boxes which would have lasted me until 2012! I was about to turn around and buy Rice Crispies instead when I noticed that the Sainsbury's Basics range includes cornflakes which are very cheap at just 46p for 500g - I reasoned that these were going to be thickly covered in chocolate anyway so even if they ...

Like many people, I'd read about the credit crunch in the papers and seen reports on the news. With no mortgage and no debt, I thought the only effect on me would be finally being able to grasp the bottom rung of the property ladder - how wrong I was! Suffice to say that life can turn around on you very quickly, and suddenly even the weekly shop becomes a painful exercise in scrabbling around in the bottom of your purse for those last elusive copper pennies. This is where Sainsbury's Basics Cornflakes come in. I usually buy Special K with red berries when it's on offer, or the Sainsbury's own brand version. When it became clear that these were no ...

I think Sainsburys make a good basics range - we have many of their Basics goods at home; they are cheap and - for the main part - quite good. In general, some basic or value stuff is ok and some of it is definitely not -you have to try it to test it. If it is not nice you do not buy it again and put the waste of cash down to experience. Sainsbury's basics cornflakes were, quite simply, horrible! My mother nagged me to eat a bowl, telling me that they would be just as good as Kellogs - yeah right. I agreed to try a bowl with her for breakfast and neither of us liked them. The flakes are much smaller than Kellogs. For some ... Read the complete review

Some basic or value stuff is ok and some of it is definately not; this is the rule for all thrifty shoppers - and you have to try it to test it. If it is not ok you simply do not buy it again and rue the wastage of cash. I think it is called a false economy. I hate those moments. The basics cornflakes turned out to be the false economy because I could not bring myself to go for a second bowl. I even tried to tempt my daughter with them but she remembered the pale, soggy mess in my bowl and impolitely declined. The flakes are smaller than your regular big brand or shops own regular. For some basics you can kid yourself ... Read the complete review
