ProCheap, taste ok I suppose

ConsToo dry for me

My husband adores Jaffa Cakes and I suppose, given his sweet tooth, they are one of the better things in the sweets, cakes and biscuits selection that he can eat. We recently tried the Tesco version of Jaffa Cakes and couldn’t tell the difference between these and the ‘real’ Jaffa Cakes. I wrote...

ProTaste Great, cheap

Consnone

Why pay more when you don’t have to if a saying I have been using a lot when shopping with my hubby lately as he wanted the branded biscuits and I put my foot down as these were on the shelf next to them. All the other Tesco Value products we have tried, including the biscuits have been of a...

I have loved Jaffa Cakes since, well forever! I was in my local Teso's store the other day when I was looking at the Jaffa Cakes, when I noticed that Teco do there own value one for just 38p for a pack of 24, which is a majority cheaper than Mcvities Jaffa Cakes, so I picked me up two boxes off...

Progreat price, tasty

Consnone

I do like Jaffa Cakes, and although the brand named ones are nice (which I will next do a review about) I think these are the best of the cheaper ones. These are from Tesco and you get 2 lots of 12 Jaffa Cakes for a bargain 38p. You only get 1 pack of 12 of the brand named ones for about 85p, so...

ProCheap alternative to branded range and still taste...

ConsCrispy texture and uninspiring packaging!

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...

ProGood tasting, just a Jaffa Cake!

ConsSponge is a bit dry

I like to save money whenever I can, and that certainly includes jaffa cakes!! I like my tea and I like something to go with it, therefore I frequently purchase biscuits and the like. What I never do however, is purchase brand names. The packaging is nothing fancy, indeed it is exactly the same...

“Tesco Value Worth A Try!!”

published 29/10/2009

ProCheap And Cheerful

ConsNone

I seem to go through biscuits at a rate of noughts in my household. I recently discovered the value range of products from Tesco and I have to say I am extremely surprised at how good and vast the range is and how much money I have saved over the last few weeks and months by switching from my...

“That's Not A Jaffa!”

published 08/04/2009

ProCheap

ConsDon't compare

Tesco Value Jaffa Cakes...... Now if there is one thing i know and that is Jaffa Cakes. I absolutely love them and can often be found scoffing a whole packet in one sitting (a large one at that!). So when I saw that Tesco's do a version of my beloved Jaffa cakes i thought how could i not try them...

Pro.

Cons.

There is usually a box of these in my house thesedays. I like Jaffa Cakes, but my husband loves them! Although it was usually McVities that we had, and I never grudged the price of them as they were good. After looking around at the Supermarkets Value Jaffa Cakes, and trying them all, I realised...

“addiction on a budget”

published 29/05/2011

Protasy & not too expensive

Conscake - not a biscuit!

I have to admit, Jaffa Cakes are something I could eat all day every day without getting bored of them. I have a real sweet tooth and these are my favourite. Whilst spending a week home alone with my friend earlier in the month, we couldn't really afford to splurge on goodies so we opted for the...

“Mmmmm! Jaffa cakes!!”

published 28/03/2010

ProThat jaffa taste!

Consthe cakey part is a bit dry

Jaffa Cake's were first introduced in 1927, largely thanks to John Langlands, a director of McVitie and Price at that time. Jaffa Cakes are made up of three layers. The bottom layer is a sponge cake base, next is a layer of orange flavoured jelly and this jaffa part is covered with chocolate. Yum...

ProCheap, low calories

ConsPackaging could be more appealing

I quite often buy these jaffa cakes as the brand name ones are so expensive now it's almost ridiculous. These do not taste worse because they are value, in fact if anything I actually prefer them to the originals. Although these have recently crept up in price they are still really good value in...

The Tesco Value range is often given a bad name, as are all supermarket no frills brands and often this is an unfair assumption as the products tend to be of equal, if not better quality, than the more expensive known brands. These jaffa cakes are no exception. Don’t be put off by the price, at...
