      Disadvantages

      Can't grumple for 35p

      I was on a lunch break the other day and was dashing round Tesco and fancied a Cornish Pasty while looking at the chilled pasty and pie section I noticed Tesco's had a Tesco Value Cornish Pasty in there value range for 35p. I then looked at the good old reliable Ginsters Cornish Pasty £1.39. I went for it and got the 35p one.

      **Packaging
      The packaging is not appealing at all; probably a little boring it is a clear plastic bag, with the well known value writing on it (blue, red & white). I think the clear packaging is a good thing as you can see the product where as other brands have coloured plastic so you can't see the product until you open it.

      **Nutrition
      Ok it's not the healthiest of things but none of the Cornish Pasties are.

      Calories - 405
      Sugar - 3.0g
      Fat - 24.3g
      Saturates - 11.1g
      Salt - 1.7g

      **Serving
      You can have this served hot or cold. I have only ever had the pasty cold so can not compare but to eat warm it's recommended 18-20mins in an oven at 180c/375f/Gas Mark 5.

      **Taste & Smell
      On tucking into the pasty I was surprised at how good the pasty was. It was flaky and not to floury at all. The filling was substantial. Not as full as a Ginster but for the price difference I expected this. The Suede, Potato & Onion inside was chunky and tasty. The black pepper was a little over powering for me.

      **Overall
      A great buy for 35p. Tasty, convenient & cheap
