Tesco Value Butter
I have tried out the Tesco value butter and this is my review.
I have been trying out a lot of the items in the Tesco value range recently to see if I can save some money on my weekly shop. I have thought that some of the items are very good value and I am pleased with them so will buy them again. Other items have been rubbish though and I will not buy them again in the future.
I use a lot of butter as I am a big baker and do a lot of cooking. If I am looking for butter to spread on my toast or use in a sandwich then I am fussy about the taste but if I am looking for butter for a recipe or for cooking with and I am going to be adding more ingredients and seasoning and things then I am not as fussy about which butter I use so this is why I thought I would try out the Tesco value butter.
The packaging is very basic but this is cos it is a Tesco value item and all of the items in the Tesco value range are very basic as it is a 'no frills' range and you are only paying for the item itself and not for it to be put into a fancy packet. This does not worry me cos the packaging goes in the bin anyway!
The butter has a single wrapper on the outside which is made of like a grease proof paper. It is a plain white colour and it has the name of the item on it and the usual Tesco value bright red colour as well as the usual Tesco value logo.
The butter comes in an oblong block and is 250g size and it looks lovely when I take it from the wrapper and put it in my butter tray. It looks a lovely yellow colour and it smells like a nicely salted butter. I paid about 85 pence for the block of Tesco value salted butter. I think they also do an unsalted version.
The first time I used the butter I was making garlic mushrooms and they need to be stuffed with butter that has been mixed with other ingredients such as herbs and bread crumb. This butter was fine for me to use and the texture of it was as thick as other butter that I have bought before.
The taste of the garlic mushrooms when they were cooked were really nice and this is a dish I make often and I could not tell any difference from using this butter in the dish and other butters.
I was to nosy and had to try out the Tesco value butter for taste by itself so I spread a little on a digestive biscuit which is a little snack I have at supper time some night times before bed. I thought the taste of the Tesco value butter was very nice although I like my butter to be quite salty tasted and this Tesco value butter was not as salty as I would have liked. If you do not like salty tasted butter though then you might like the taste of the Tesco value butter better than I did.
I will be buying the Tesco value butter again and I would suggest giving it a try cos I thought it was a very good value product and was a very good price. I used to pay about £1 for a block of butter so the price for the Tesco value butter to be used in baking is a good price for me and I am happy with this.
