I can hardly see why it's a trick? If they didn't want people buying it in the offer then they wouldn't put it in the offer in the first place.

Is it? I've never noticed a difference and I switch between value and branded flour quite a bit. Are you sure you're not just imagining the difference because you feel like there should be one? (Not that you can really answer that as if you were imagining it you wouldn't realise you were doing it!)

I got a 2 pack of sieves from 99p store, clearly not the best/strongest quality but do the job for now..
I always wonder who these deals are intended for.

Bread is cheap to buy, so no excuses


Are you being serious!? Firstly, people who bake their own bread do it either because it tastes better or they enjoy doing it - it certainly doesn't save any money. Secondly, there are a hell of a lot more uses for flour than baking bread. I don't see how bread being cheap helps me make a cheese sauce or a cake? Are you suggesting I just blend up value bread and use that instead?

So you think there is someone in your store who deliberately prevents the labelling of value flour and sultanas as being part of the offer? That is absurd - why on Earth would they care? The pennies saved are peanuts in comparison to their total sales, not to mention each store will be judged based on their sales figures and not on the profitability of individual items. It's in their best interest to sell as much of it as they possibly can.

Yes i do they crack down on the gilches in there in a flash
I didn't say anything about the flour
but the pilgrims choice i posted @4.50 per kilo never had its price changed
despite me pointing it out to them and getting them too price some up for me
there was an interesting thread in misc earlier on the haverfordwest store

There is a big difference in using a 'quality' flour for making bread. For example, the Allinson Very Strong flour makes very good bread, in comparison to many bread flours.
Personally, I make my own bread because of the daft 'high' salt levels in shop bought bread.
BTW: anyone looking for a decent sized, cheap loaf tin, the big loaf tin from House of Frazer is good for a tenner.

Have to agree with m5rcc on this one........we have tried both & certainly notice that the value flour is not as good for sponges or batters

Own brand Strong brown is 80p for 1.5kg ( so 4.5kg for 1.60) and has pretty much the same protein content as Allinsons (13.8g vs 13.9g)

Higher protein level is better for bread making

Agreed - Waitrose Canadian Strong flour is about the best around for breadmaking, but it is somewhat dearer.
How many kilos of flour does it take to make a loaf of bread in a breadmaker? It is not a joke... I am just wondering if it is more economical to make bread in a machine rather than buying a loaf.

Here's a fairly typical recipe for a loaf which will be around the 950gm mark - a standard loaf being 800gm:

Yeast 1.25 tsp
Strong White Flour 600 g
Sugar 2 tsp
Butter 25 g
Salt 1.5 tsp
Water 400 mL

Not, perhaps, a great money saver - but infinitely better than horrible supermarket plastic-wrapped loaves.
