I own up I am not a great lover of Jaffa cakes never have been. However I bought these to take into work for a classroom treat at snack time for the children and the adults. Also I would like to inform you that These everyday value Jaffa cakes are really the old value Tesco range but Tesco has recently changed the packaging and the name of its cheap value range of goods to everyday value.
There are many Jaffa cakes on sale in Tesco’s and other supermarkets also making their own brand. The most expensive Jaffa cakes at Tesco are McVitie's mini Jaffa Cakes selling at £1,59 Cadburys pack of 12 are £1.29. Mini (115g) these every day value ones come in at 79p for the 24pack that’s 3.3p per cake/biscuit.
The outer box is an off white colour with the information written in two shades of orange. There is a picture of a few Jaffa cakes on the box and several small pictures of teapots, cups, chunks of chocolate, orange segments, oranges, wheat stems. These mini pictures are also in two shades of orange
Inside this card box are 2 clear packs of Jaffa cakes they each have 12 Jaffa cakes in. These Jaffa cakes look much like any other a sponge base with the top covered in milk chocolate, the centre a little raised where the chocolate goes over the orange gel.
Each Jaffa cake has 42 calories, 1g fat
So how do these taste? They taste fine the chocolate is not a strong taste a basic chocolate but not unpleasant. The orange gel jam tastes lightly of orange, not too strong not an unpleasant taste. The cake base is ok too just a basic sponge. Th4ese Tesco value Jaffa cakes taste fine.
Would I recommend? Yes for a cheap everyday cake /biscuit they are fine
