At a rock bottom price of 17 pence a packet, these are worth going for. A hell of a lot cheaper than the branded equivalent, they are delicious in everyway. The packaging is simple and effective - it tells you what you're buying and it shows you the traffic light system. It shows red and orange in sectors of the traffic light system, which insinuates it's not good. Everything is good for you, as long as it is eaten in moderation. These are so delicious, it's hard not to resist, but you'll have to try your best! As I mentioned the nutritional content of the fingers, I will tell you that there are 81 calories per biscuit but I don't think that posting ... Read the complete review

** Sainsbury's 'Basics' Shortbread Fingers ** What with the way things are atthe moment for everyone economically we always try to save money buy buying a lot of supermarket home brands. As most of you will I am sure already know most supermarkets offer a really cheap own brand of groceries and other food items. Sainsbury's brand of cheap own brand food is called 'basics'. So when shopping at Sainsbuy's for the main weakly shop the basics range feature heavily in our purchases. By no means do we shop exclusively at Sainsbury's as there are a lot of supermarkets near by so we are spoilt for choce. But Sainsbury's is one of our more regular places to ...

I can't believe these shortbread fingers are only 12p a pack, they're yummy and deffo one of the biggest bargains in Sainsburys. You get a 160g pack for that and I've never actually counted them but I reckon that's about 12 fingers, it might even be 14 but you'll have to count them yourself! lol The biscuits are a good size and have lot little holes on the top and sugar sprinkled over them, they're a bit light looking and don't really look like they've been cooked for long enough to me! They've got a nice soft but crunchy texture. The fingers crumble as you bite into them and have got a proper nice buttery texture. They ARE a bit dryer than the ... Read the complete review

I don't often go into Sainsbury's because I don't think that they represent good value for money and find my regular supermarkets ...tesco, Asda, Morrisons, Aldi and Lidl are much cheaper. However, with the annoucement on the TV this morning that Sainsbury's sale had started I decided to go to my nearest Sainbury's store and have a mooch. I did not pick up any sale bargains buit grabbed a few 'essentials while I was there... mostly from the Basics range. After having tried the Tesco Value 9p version of these biscuits I actually hunted these out. At 12p for ten biscuits these are very cheap shortbread, as shortbread is notoriously expensive. But do they look ... Read the complete review

All my family love shortbread but I usually only buy it around Christmas time, not really sure why, just a tradition we have. However, I was in the biscuit aisle in Sainsbury's last week trying to decide which ones to buy that wouldn't be too bad for us, when I saw their basics Shortbread fingers. They really stand out with their bright orange and white packaging and I was tempted to pick up the packet for a look. Now I am not a fan of food basic ranges in any supermarket as I always assume that they have more fat and sugar than the normal ranges to make up for lack of other ingredients. However, on comparing the fat and sugar content to another leading ... Read the complete review
