I don't usually buy the basics stuff if I can help it. I like to eat as well as I can afford to, and can usually stretch to the normal sainsbury's stuff. However, at the end of term, just before christmas, I was feeling a little strapped for cash as I had spent all of my student loan, and decided to invest in some sainsburys basics crips. My advice is this: DONT BUY THEM The packaging is the usual sainsburys basics packaging. Orange and white and unimaginative. For every single flavour packet I tried there didnt seem to be much flavour. You could just tell what flavour you were eating, but it was eating diluted crips. Not nice. And they ...

Sainsburys Basics Crisps are certainly among the cheapest crisps in the supermarket. At 78p for a pack of 12, you are looking at just over 6p per bag. Fair enough the individual bags are a touch on the small size at only 18g but that is still phenomenally cheap! The variety pack contains 4 ready salted bags, 4 cheese and onion and 4 salt and vinegar; not the most original of flavours but a good assortment nonetheless. In terms of taste, these crisps aren't amazing by any stretch of the imagination. The crisps themselves have a kind of earthy taste to them (kind of like unwashed potato skins), and the flavouring is a bit bland for my taste. That ... Read the complete review

I get through quite a lot of crisps and generally buy the ones that are on special offer but noticed that the Sainsbury's Basics Crisps Variety Pack work out even cheaper at just 78 pence for twelve 18g bags of crisps. In a money saving bid I decided to give them a go. The variety pack contains 4 bags of each flavour which are: Cheese and Onion, Salt and Vinegar and Ready Salted but they are also available in just Ready Salted and twelve bags sell for quite a lot cheaper at 48p. But I like variety with my crisps so I don't mind paying the extra cost to get this. As with all of the basics range there is no fancy packaging, but it's sufficient for me as all I'm ...

These crisps from Sainsburys Basic range of their lower brand are very good for the low price of 68p for a 12 packets of crisps, each packet is 18g and the variety are 4 ready salted, 4 salt and vinegar 4 cheese and onion, admittedly they are not in fancy packaging but what can you expect for the low price. The are in the orange and white logo colours for Sainsburys and inside there are the dozen individual bags each one 18g which are quite small but large enough for lunch boxes or picnics, BBQs and even parties, I use them for parties all the time and also put them into little dishes and they look super along side the other foods. They are not ... Read the complete review

Sainsbury's Basics Crisps Description: Manufacturer: Sainsbury's / Type: Crisps Like all products in the Sainsbury's Basics range, these crisps have pain looking white packaging with orange writing. Yes it does look a little bit cheap and nasty but it also means that you are not paying extra for fancy wrapping, which has to be a good thing. 12 packets of ready salted crisps in this range cost me £0.55 and there is also a multi pack of flavoured crisps available if you prefer. Each bag is only 18g so seems a little small which is disappointing. The crisps themselves are light and golden and look pretty good. They are ... Read the complete review
