I love Ginger biscuits, I buy lots of different brands, well known ones and also a shops own brand. I do like a shops own brand because they are quite cheap to buy and so I save a little money. I eat them as a treat because I like to eat a healthy diet as much as possible. These biscuits come in a plastic wrapper which is the usual colours of orange and white of the Basics range from Sainsbury's. There are circular shape and measure approximately 2 inches in diameter. A good size in my opinion. There are 32 biscuits in the packet and also an extremely good amount in my opinion. They are a nice golden colour with a cracked design as all Gingers ...

As the financial crisis has deepened, I've been looking to save money wherever I can, and this includes economising on food shopping. Part of my cost cutting has involved trying the 'Basics' range of products from Sainsburys and at 34p for a packet weighing 300g, the Basics Ginger Snaps are very good value. Ingredients: Wheat Flour, Sugar, Palm Oil, Glucose-Fructose Syrup, Raising Agent: Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate, Ammonium Hydrogen Carbonate; Molasses, Ginger Powder, Salt, Natural Flavouring. This breaks down into 1.6g of fat, 0.8g of which is saturated, 3g of sugars, 0.11g of salt, which all adds up to 46 cals per biscuit. The ... Read the complete review

Having already reviewed my first biscuit staple from the Basics collection, I thought I may as well do the other. I've always been a fan of a ginger biscuit, cake or snap. Part of it is the flavour of ginger, and in part I find it can be soothing for an upset stomach. As with many Sainsbury's Basics products, they are very cheap. They are currently selling for 45p for a 300g packet. They are not the healthiest snack at 46 kcal per biscuit, but it is a biscuit so you can't expect it to be. The packaging is in the usual white plastic wrapper with orange writing - so easy to identify on the shelf. Dietary Information: Contains wheat ... Read the complete review

Sainsbury's Ginger Snaps are just a re branded form of ginger nuts and if you like those then you should like these. These Ginger snaps are a bit less wide than the originals however they have roughly the same depth. First off, these biscuits are in the Sainsbury's basics range which means two things. Firstly they are very cheap which is always handy, especially in these times. Secondly unfortunately, I think that they do not have the same quality of ingredients as the originals. The taste o these biscuits is nice enough however I do find they differ from the originals. There can be no complaint over whether there is enough ginger taste to them ... Read the complete review

Ginger snaps are a new addition to the basics range and like the other biscuits they are not much different to premium brands. A pack is 300g and costs 34p which is about a third of the McVitie's price. They are more expensive than other basics biscuits such as rich tea which costs just 25p and has a bigger pack size. If you are buying 2 packs you are 1p better of getting a bigger Sainsbury's own brand packet. I haven't tried the Tesco's Value equivalent but reviews here say they contain and taste of coconut. This is not an issue with Sainsbury's which have a strong, traditional ginger flavour and no coconuts in the ingredients list. Ginger is ... Read the complete review
