---Why I Bought This---
Like everyone else we are trying to save money at the moment and downgrading our brands if possible and so we will often try a different one to see how we get on with them - for many items we are happy to stick with the Value goods. We are sampling many of the Tesco Value items to see which we can use on a regular basis.
500 grams of cornflakes in a plastic bag.
---What I think of Them---
However these cornflakes are AWFUL.
I do not mind them coming in the plastic bag packaging - you expect that sort of thing when buying cheap items.
However the cornflakes themselves are much smaller than what we expect from a regular cornflake - but that would not matter if they did not taste so dreadful. I am not that fussy but would have to be very desperate to resort to this as a meal - would probably taste better to eat cardboard - these are small, hard and tasteless.
I found then quite inedible and the most awful cereal I have ever had - I did not eat them and ended up giving the rest of the packet to the birds - don't think I'd even want to use them in baking.
I am not a brand snob and quite happily enjoy the Tesco own brand cornflakes - but these Value ones are another thing altogether.
Virtually inedible - do not buy - go for the normal Tesco make ones instead.
Barley Malt Extract
Emulsifier (Soya Lecithins)
Cheap but inedible - so not waste your money on these.
