---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.



---The Product---


500 grams of cornflakes in a plastic bag.




---The Cost---


31 pence.




---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.



---Pros---


Cheap.



---Cons---


Virtually inedible - do not buy - go for the normal Tesco make ones instead.




---Ingredients---


Maize (96%),

Sugar

Barley Malt Extract

Salt

Emulsifier (Soya Lecithins)

Niacin

Vitamin E

Iron

Pantothenic Acid

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B2

Vitamin B1

Folic Acid

Vitamin B12.



---Summary---


Cheap but inedible - so not waste your money on these.

I was thinking maybe they'd do for making cornflake cakes, but on the other hand it seems a shame to ruin a perfectly good cornflake cake!
