“ Brand: Morrisons / Type: Other Spreads „
Morrisons Value Spread is only 75p for a 1kg tub! Really! I was actually looking for a cheap little tub while I was in store recently, but this whopping great 1kg tub was both the biggest and the cheapest. So considering my primary concern was to get a cheap spread to do us until we did our big shop later in the week, I thought I might as well give this one a go. The idea being that if it turned out to be a bit rubbish, it didn't matter - we'd just bin the remainder at that price.
The first thing I noticed about this was that the packaging was a fair bit better than I'd expected it to be. It's quite thin, as you'd expect from a cheap product like this, but it's also sturdy with a well fitting lid. There's even a good, easy-to-peel protective layer to keep the contents fresh beneath the lid while it's waiting in store for a buyer to take it home.
The spread itself is a lot better than I'd been expecting. It's soft and very easy to spread, but at the same token, it's thick enough to give a good texture in a sandwich or on a slice of toast. The taste is very much like a sunflower style spread, rather than a butter or buttermilk spread. It's a shame for me because I do like a nice creamy spread, but I accept that you can't have everything for nothing!
The ingredients are Water, Vegetable Oils, Emulsifier, Preservative, Citric Acid, Flavouring, Colour, Vitamins A and D. It's suitable for spreading and home freezing it says, as well as vegetarians. But it's not for use in baking.
All in all I'm really impressed with this stuff. I can't believe I can get 1kg of spread for just 75p! Let alone one that's easy to spread, has a pleasant flavour and a decent texture as well. I only wish there was an equivilant on sale in our usual Tescos. I might have to stop in at Morrisons more often.
