I was on the lookout for something sweet to go with my cup of tea. I searched in the cupboard and came across Tesco's own version of Jaffa Cakes. I am not sure how much exactly they cost, although I have seen some prices on the internet for 60p for 24 Jaffa Cakes which I think is fantastic value for money. Obviously, being Tesco's own make, they are only available at Tesco's. The Jaffa Cakes come in small-ish sized circles - say around 5cm each way. They have a dark chocolate topping and a golden brown base. Compared to McVities Jaffa Cakes, the base on these ones are quite crunchy and seem to be slightly 'over-baked' although I have to say I do ... Read the complete review

On a recent trip to Tesco I really fancied some Jaffa Cakes, so I headed to the biscuit isle in search for them. Normally there is an offer of some sorts on Jaffa cakes, usually a multi-buy one but sadly this time there was not! As I have been on a very tight budget recently I decided that I would instead try the Tesco own branded Jaffa Cakes, so popped a box in my basket. The Tesco Jaffa Cakes come in a box containing 12 cakes, they were priced at just £0.59 this was almost half the price of the branded McVites version. The Jaffa Cakes come in a bright orange box with pictures of the Jaffa Cakes on the front, allowing you to see what they look ... Read the complete review

We always have Jaffa Cakes in our house. They are one of my favourite snacks and I also like the fact that they are quite low in fat too! As I am currently following the weight watchers plan I can have a Jaffa Cake in exchange for 1 weight watcher point so I see them as a little sweet treat that isnt going to ruin my diet. When I was growing up we always had McVities Jaffa Cakes. However, when you find yourself footing the food bill then you are willing to swap some of your branded sweet treats! You can buy 36 Jaffa Cakes (wrapped in packs of 12) from Tesco for £1.75, the McVities equivalent costs £2.88 so this is quite a saving. So the Jaffa ... Read the complete review

Tesco Jaffa Cakes What is it? ******** Tesco describes them as ' golden sponge base with an orange centre half coated in plain chocolate' - aka, Jaffa Cakes! Special features? ************* They are Jaffa cakes under the Tesco brand name. What do I think? ************* I think these are fantastic and they are exactly like Jaffa cakes but at a third of the cost. These cost 54p for a pack of 24 compared with the real thing which is about £1.40 for 12. The real thing probably tastes sweeter and is presented more nicely with a nice quality outer box and a swanky orange caged plastic tub, these ... Read the complete review

I purchased this packet of 12 of Tesco's Jaffa Cakes for just 62p which is the long term price and one that I just couldn't resist, even on my limited budget. The packaging is very basic; a cardboard box with orange, nutritional information, company information, barcode etc and the best before date is several months away although there is no danger of them lasting that long with me around! Each jaffa cake contains 43 calories and 1g fat per jaffa cake so they actually have 4 calories less than the 'real' version and they appear to be an identical size. These jaffa cakes have been wrapped up in 12 and I always find that once a packet is ... Read the complete review
