When I was growing up we never had biscuits that were fancy in my house. We always had digestives and rich tea and custard creams and the like if we were very lucky. Not because my Mother was tight. It was to slow us down munching them as quick as she purchased them. The only time we had 'posh' ones laid out was when we had visitors. I remember eating one or two in company as not to get told off and praying the guests wouldn't eat them all and then Mum would put them in the kitchen and I would pinch the lot when no one was looking. One of the biscuits I loved growing up was jaffa cakes and when I eat them not only do I like them lots but they evoke nice, special memories Read the complete review

So I'm on my break from work and I decide to 'treat' myself to something sweet. Having such a small amount of money on me, I settled for Tesco Value Jaffa cakes. This review gives me the perfect excuse to scoff some more... == Jaffa Cakes == If you've been living in a cave for a lifetime, I expect you would have never heard of a Jaffa Cake. They are small round cakes shaped like a biscuit. It has a spongey base, a jelly orange centre and chocolate on top. McVities are the market leader in Jaffa Cakes, but supermarkets offer their own cheaper versions! == Packaging == The packaging is uninspiring, but that comes with the Value ...

Every week on my usual shop to tesco I always buy biscuits so I decided one week to save a little by trying some tesco value options instead of the dearer well known brands. So to start with I swapped mcvities jaffa cakes with the tesco value jaffa cakes which I got for only 72p for a pack of 24 which is great value! The packaging is very plain and simple with the traditional tesco value colours of blue, white and red on the box and inside the jaffa cakes are in 2 seperate packages. As with any biscuits they must be kept in a cool dry place and once opened sealed within an air tight container as they will go stale otherwise which I have experienced with these ...

Until i went travelling recently I was always a bit of a food snob, only buying the 'branded' foods as I automatically assumed that they tasted better than the supermarket own brands. Through travelling though I was forced to eat cheaper foods and realised that in terms of flavour there really isnt too much difference. I popped to Tesco recently and was looking for some biscuits and saw that they had their own version of jaffa cakes for only 49p. I thought that this was very cheap and well worth a try, even if they turned out to be nothing like the mcvities versions. At the price they are about 2p each as you get 24 in the box, which is much ... Read the complete review

Any regular readers of my reviews will be aware by now that I am a huge lover of biscuits and cakes and anything that is nice and sweet really, such is the control that my sweet tooth has over me! I have not been too well recently and so my partner has taken over a few of the domestic duties that need done. One of these is shopping for food and household items. Because the nearest supermarket to our house is a very huge branch of 'Tesco Extra' this of course is where he ended up at the weekend to get our shopping. I know I shouldn't grumble because it saved me going out for the shopping but I could really never be described as the biggest fan of ... Read the complete review
