It would seem that something like Salted Peanuts are a fairly simple product to do well. The Sainsbury's Basics range shows that you don't need a load of flashy packaging to get a great tasting nut (or in this case legume). At just 23p for a 200g pack they are really great value and they taste fantastic as well. The taste is equally gorgeous as the branded varieties, and I can see no reduction in quality in these. I am a big fan of savoury snacks and a packet of Sainsbury's Basics Salted Peanuts is fast becoming my regular weekday treat. This is probably not a good thing as peanuts are not very good for you, these being no exception. Each 50g serving contains ... Read the complete review

SAINSBURY'S BASICS PEANUTS. Well thats just what they are basic peanuts, cheap and basic but this doesnt in any way in my opinion reflect from the fact that the peanuts are basically quite good. The Package ********** The Packet is the basic white bag with writting on it in red Roasted Salted Peanuts, a bit smaller but still nutty. They come in a 200 gram bag and to be honest they were good value for their money. I think that the peanuts tasted just as good as any other packet ive tried, but only cost me 28p which is an absolute bargain for a 200 gram bag, especially if you consider how many you get for your money and the fact that ...

These are good value at 30p for 200gm. OK they are smaller than nuts in other packets but the flavour is good. We eat loads of nuts as we are a vegetarian household, and nuts are an essential foodstuff here. We have hazlenuts, walnuts, almonds, and brazil nuts in the cupboard - but these are quite expensive. I tend to use them in recipes, so for just snacking I have two or three packets of Sainsbury's basics peanuts on standby. Much better than reaching for crisps. The peanuts are very salty, which is regarded as naughty these days, but which I would challenge. If the body craves salt then give it salt! Salt content 100gm Basics ... Read the complete review

Oh dear god these are so so so so so so good. Yes. Indeed. Anyway. I like nuts. I usually eat almonds, but they're so expensive, you know, like £6 a kilo at the cheapest. And I was thinking, oh, why, why, why. And peanuts are cheap. So I looked at peanuts, and I saw Sainsbury Basics Peanuts. As I love Sainsbury Basics I decided to buy them, and I did. These are very good. The end. No. I must tell you more. I was a bit off about these due to the fact that they are salted and not dry roasted - they contain sunflower and palm oil. But the salt is so low compared to everyone else's peanuts that, really, who cares? I only eat 25g at a time and the salt in that ... Read the complete review

When it comes to snacking I really am a pro! I adore crisps and anything remotely unhealthy but occasionally (not often though lol) I do get bored of the usual offerings in my local stores and decide to hunt for something bit different...which is where these came in cos the other day whilst I was mooching around Sainsbury's, I'd looked around the crisp department and nothing jumped out at me and grabbed my attention so I grabbed a couple of bags of these and threw them in my basket as I hadn't seen them before! The Packaging.... 200g white and orange, long oblongish bag and in orange,white and black writing on the front I'm told they're Sainsbury's ... Read the complete review
