Tesco Value Crunchy Peanut Butter
Advantages: price and taste
Disadvantages: none really
I'm a real fan of peanut butter and have to say that it's the only thing I tend to put between my slices of bread. I usually buy Tesco's own label of peanut butter which will set you back around £1.34 for 340g not bad when you compare it to the leading brands like sunpat. Whilst browsing in my local Tesco's I went to the peanut butter shelf and came accross their value peanut butter, I instantly grabbed a jar and headed for the checkout.
The first thing that drew me to this peanut butter was the price for a 340g jar it was only 62p, which is more than twice as cheap as there own brand, considering we go through atleast a jar a week in our house this was worth a try. I am always keen on trying Tesco's value brands as I feel for the price nothing ventured nothing gained, if it's not any good I know not to buy it again and I haven't wasted too much money! When you have a family and are on a budjet any money you can save on the weekly shop is a plus in my opinion.
The jar is like most peanut butter jars although I have to say that I do prefer the jars that are more wider than taller as they fit better in my food cupboard and are easier to grip. The design is like most of the value products simple, but in my opinion they don't look too cheap and nasty, they actually call it everyday value now rather than value which makes it more appealing. You can see the peanut butter through the jar which I like and the colour is not too light in appearance, I often feel put off by peanut butter if it is too light in colour as it tends to remind me of something which I won't mention as I wouldn't want to put you off!
It contains no artificial preservatives, flavours or colours which is always a bonus especially if you are giving it to your little ones. It is high in calories and fat but if its eaten in moderation like most things then in my opinion this is fine. I would only have a sandwich covering of it a day and don't like it too thickly spread as your sandwich would become rather hard to digest due to the consistency of the peanut butter.
When you take the lid off the jar the first thing I noticed was how easily it came off and then how easy it was to reseal. there is nothing worse than wrestling with a jar to get the lid off, a waste of ones energy! Like I previously said the colour was good not too light which does put me off. when I put my knife in the consistency was nice and thick but not too thick that it breaks the bread soon as it is spread. It didn't look watery either which I have seen with other peanut butters which again I really dislike. I did notice when looking close that some of the peanuts used do look slightly dark like they are maybe seconds but this didn't bother me as it didn't in my view affect the taste in any way. I prefer crunchy peanut butter to the smooth but thats my personal preference. This peanut butter did have lots of crunchy peanut bits in but not too many. I remember trying the sunpat one which I thought for the price was very mean when it came to the amount of peanuts in it and the peieces were rather small in size, this brand the peanut pieces are of a good size. The taste was great not too sweet and it didn't taste salty which some can, I always know if a food is too salty in taste asIi have to drink pints of water after not appealing in the slightest. After eating my first Tesco everyday value peanut butter sandwich I was left feeling very satisfied and pleased i had purchased such a great value product!
Overall i was really impressed with this Tesco value product and will definately continue to buy it.
Summary: A great value product form Tesco
