Supermarket Own Brand Stuff

So, the other day I used ASDA Essentials shave foam at a friend's place. I must say it was great. I normally use gillette but this smelled, felt and performed just as good. At a third of the price!

What are the own brand stuff which you use and how good are they?

I buy the sainsburys basics tuna cos i eat loads of it being into weights.

Tastes no different and half the price of other tuna.

tesco value baby wipes are fantastic they cost 18p a pack and are really moist, better than huggies and pampers for them sticky poos ;) (sorry if your eating breakfast reading this )

Lots of home brand stuff is just as good as branded. Be careful with certain foods but most of them the home brands are great. Its a bit of trial and error but you can save loads :)

Oh word of warning dont buy asda home brand deodrant. Bought 2 cans before and they leaked all out the top when sprayed (I mean it came out as a liquid)

Tesco tuna is fine. Stick it in their own brand wholemeal pittas and it's a nice pre-gym lunch.

Tesco peanut butter is fine for cooking with too. Has similar protein levels and is actually slightly lower in calories. Same goes for their plain chocolate and honey which combine to make the nicest protein bars out there.

Tesco porridge oats are great for breakie too.

Also picked up some of their cottage cheese and the Value brand seems to have a very similar nutritional value and doesn't taste too different.

I worked it out once.

a student can actually eat very healthily on about 15 quid a week if they shop clever

Slightly off the topic but since value is the theme and fitness food has been mentioned, cant hurt.

I recommend myprotein impact whey flavourless protein. cheap, better than metrx and other brands iv tried and you never get bored cos u can add ur own flavours for variety.
#10
I knew food was definitely going to be an issue here. What about bread and bakery items? I always buy own brand bread.
banned#11
i find the bread isnt so good, same with some of the biscuits although the basics jaffa cakes are quite acceptable.
#12
I buy own brand biscuits like ginger nuts, bourbons and digestives we cant tell the difference.

I use to buy own brand kitchen towel but its quite rubbish as is the toilet paper compared to how much you have to use and the quality i buy branded now.
#13
asdas (is it smart price?) tuna is fine, mix it with sald cream in a pitta, cant tell the difference
asdas and tescos value/smart price chocolate digestives are yummy, i prefer tescos value dark digestives to mcvities, but morrisons own are better
I do like asdas own potato salad aswel.
Have to say their smart price mature cheese is rather naff thow, and for £2 for 400g, its not worth it when they generally have a half price block on offer for around the same price

#17
The thing is a lot of them are made in the same factory and there are only so many baked beans/bourbons factories.

Only bought that twice and it was so awful, was bascially grit and bones, and Sainsburys basics yogurt tasted like cheese and the pieaches tasted like ink.

Havent tried them since cos of that.

Peanut butter and chocolate protein bars.

For the person asking about Creatine then I would definitely recommend it if the rest of your diet and routine is solid. Myprotein has Creatine Mono for about £15 but if you use their price beater to match Ironscience.co.uk then it comes out at slightly less than £9 for a kilo.

Sainsburys Bran Flakes are actually better than Kelloggs imo, so much cheaper

Your baby is newbory isn't s/he? Do you not use just cotton wool and water on their sensitive little bottom?

I love Asda's own (not smartprice) toilet roll. I get the 24 pack for about £8, they're such good quality and I stock up on them! I like Sainsbury's own deoderant, £1 a bottle it's quite pricey for an own brand to be fair. I also like their basics weetabix, about 60p a pack and they're the same taste just a different shape.
I also buy the cheapest pasta and rice,eggs, their cleaning products like dish cloths/brushes etc, I also buy their own value range bubble bath so my son can mix it up when in the bath and make "potions" lol

The supermarkets fresh baked bread is miles better than any of the branded bagged stuff - warm, crunchy crust and soft fluffy middle.

I love the impact whey protein powder too - especially the choc mint flavour.

morrisons own bread is great not tryed there basics bread all own brand borbons and that are great dont like own brand baked beans

Yeah i agree bakery bread is the best, but the own brand sliced bread isnt worth getting. Maybe for toast at a push.

Easy. I feed a family of 5 a very balance diet for approx £45-50 per week. And that includes all household stuff and nappies!

I buy value creme bubble bath and fill my hand soap dispensers with it, I use hand cream anyway so even if it were a bit harsher I dont notice.

Things like pasta, rice, tinned pulses I dont mind the value range, the less ingredients the less they can differ I think.

Superdrug's own brand hair dye's are excellent, I've used all brands over the years and these are defo the best, plus thay always have offers on these, 2 for, 3 for etc.

I am a toilet roll and cereal snob though, we had the value stuff when we were kids and I hated them so not for me.
