How can a corn flake be fake lol, its a simple process you know.

Kelloggs??

I'm quite happy to try supermarket equivalents and would endorse Tesco, Asda and Sainsburys 'Honey Nut Flakes'.

However, I've found the Lidl cereals I've tried (including the Crunchy Nut equivalent) to be less than fantastic.

Haven't tried these from Aldi before but they certainly are cheap.

There has just been an ad on the telly... ''If it doesn't say Kelloggs on the pack then it's not Kelloggs in the pack''

I think i'll save my milk for Kelloggs

I quite like sone supermarket own brand foods. Asda and Morissons stuff is lovely, altough Tesco and Co-op stuff is not so nice.

However corn flakes, and also cola for that matter, are two foods that can not be copied.

ADD NOKIA PHONES?

Having gone on an economy drive I have been trying Aldi cereals for the last few months and have to say that they fare very well to the pricier well known brands.

Voted hot:thumbsup:

Different store, but I dashed into Lidl just to get some milk on my way home, and also bought some nice looking muesli, 50% fruit: it's the nicest muesli I've ever tried, beating brands such as Alpen. Contains papaya and chopped dates amongst other fruits,and loads of seedy goodness. Delish! So another vote for the possibility of certain unnamed cereals from lower-priced stores being as nice (if not better,as in this case) than well advertised branded products.

If you (other people) like normal cornflakes / honeynut cornflakes, why not do away with brand snobbery and give the Aldi ones a try? It's not like you'll lose much $ if they don't turn out to be to your taste, and if you do like them than great; breakfast for a week or two sorted for less than a quid! :thumbsup:

hot;-):-D

I'm afraid you've reacted exactly as Kelloggs hope people will. That's why they're running all the ads. Their products are grossly overpriced, which is what branding is all about, and their big worry is that more and more customers are discovering that the product just isn't worth the price premium.

Don't get ripped off. Try the alternatives - some of them are every bit as good as Kelloggs.

I am agree on the Lidl muesli, tried it and was quite impressed. Not really tried any Aldi cereal's, as I am a crunchy nut, may give it a go. Thanks:thumbsup:

I'm all for trying other brands to save a bit of cash, but in my opinion these Aldi cornflakes are not as tasty as the Kelloggs brands having tried them recently. Haven't tried the other supermarkets brands for a while so they may fare better against Kelloggs.

Each to their own though!

I sometimes buy Lidl's conflakes(.99p) if I need some quickly and eventhough they are not Kellogs they taste very very similar - hubby and kids still dont know!!

Honey nut cornflakes for 99p = Bargain in my book :thumbsup:

Fake ones..lol
Nothing wrong with some of them, and Aldi cornflakes are fine.
This is a good deal.

I don't think there is anybody out there that is a bigger 'brand snob' than me...but I even eat these!!

Good for you :thumbsup:
Another one who has been educated ;-)

I suppose the thing to do is the side by side test to see if the cheaper conflake is as good as the Kellogg one.

I think Kelloggs put bucket loads of salt in their cereals thats why they taste better

Lidl cornflakes did very well in a magazine taste test.
Yet to try them, but have had Aldi ones and they were good.

I've tried Asda, Sainsburys and Tesco cornflakes, and although I eat a lot of own-label food, cornflakes are something that has to be Kelloggs. Its all down to personal taste, and as you don't know my taste, I don't see how you can criticise it.

They are overpriced for what they are, but they also taste better which compensates for it.

Are you a heavy smoker? If not, I don't see how you can make that statement? There is a very clear difference in taste between the own-brand cornflakes and the Kelloggs. How you can question my taste I don't know - as I said before, I eat mainly own brand food anyway.

As I was criticising Kelloggs (and replying to someone else anyway) I'm sorry that you took it as a criticism of your taste. I agree that it's all down to personal taste - it just depends how much people are prepared to overpay Kelloggs to get their particular taste. Heinz beans work on the same basis, but they're losing out now that people have realised there are cheaper alternatives which are just as good. Different, maybe, as with cornflakes, but just as good nonetheless.

Don't worry, I didn't take it as a criticism! I was just questioning how you could know how others taste certain products. I'm sure a large number of Kelloggs customers buy them because they prefer the taste, not purely brand loyallty - especially with the amount of people who buy supermarket own brand nowadays.

I'm sure you're right that some people do just buy it for the brand though.

Sorry but its easy to tell the difference between kellogs cornflakes and supermarket brands, kellogs do taste way nicer.

That said im a cheap skate and always buy own brand cereals,i couldnt bring myself to spend £3 on a box that last 2 minutes.

Was going to post this deal after my wife just came back with the shopping with two boxes of the honey nut cornflakes. Fabulous deal, actually prefer quite a number of Aldi brand cereals as well as other own brand supermarket cereals than the ones offered by price inflated Kelloggs or Nestle. If they are fortified with the same vitamins and have lowered salt (like most Aldi cereals do including these honey nut cornflakes) and taste as good (or better) in my opinion why spend more?

Heat added, these are a bargain and a good quality cereal

PS...On the subject of Heinz Ketchup, I personally prefer Aldi's Ketchup than Heinz, and thats not a sleight against any big brand, my Ketchup of choice is Cross & Blackwells Branston Tomato Ketchup.

What Aldi lack in choice they win with quality over other supermarkets ]http//ww…14/

devils_advicate;6540592

Add Heinz tomato ketchup to that list



generally agree on the cornflakes....... i have yet to see better than kellogs
(incidently does anyone know the history of the cornflake, if not it makes entertaining reading, but i digress)

ketchup on the other hand...

Sainsburys make a damn good red sauce (just not the value tho, that is horrid)
