**FREE 1% FAT MILK GIVEAWAY AT SAINSBURYS** One day only: Fri 16 May

Pop into any Sainsburys on Friday 16 May and they will give you a free pint of their orange label 1% fat milk or a coupon to claim if stocks are depleted. Basically 1% fat milk has less fat then semi-skimmed, but does not taste as "watery" as skimmed milk. May as well give it a try if its free.

On 30th April, Sainsburys became first supermarket to sell own brand 1% fat milk. It contains 40% less saturated fat than semi skimmed. The good news is, in taste tests 2 out of 3 people couldnt tell the difference. All of which adds up to us being 100% confident youll like it.

Our newest type of milk, with about half the fat content of semi skimmed milk but all the taste. It contains the same amount of calcium and B vitamins as semi skimmed and skimmed milk but is not recommended for children aged two and below. Please note photo shown shows a 2 pint pack as i could not find a photo for 1 pint.

Yeah, like Napoleon Dynamite!

Can you taste the difference?

Worth a try, i love the stuff i only buy this new type now, cant tell the difference at all.

Low fat and all the taste, sounds good. I'll give it a try.

Thanks! Shouldn't this be in Freebies?

Well this has got to be worth a try - and I'm glad it's in this section - or I'd have missed the deal altogether!

Thanks OP - I'll spread the word to my friends at Weight Watchers! ;-)

Hmmm.. I'll spend a fortune adding butter to make it tasty though...



For free? Yeah, why not!

Ah ! gone are the Gold Top days, dunno if i could drink it now good tho gunna go fri thanx

Wouldn't try this again even if it is free! I think I'll stick to semi which is only 1% more fat anyway. Seems a big difference when they quote 40% less saturated fat but in the grand scheme of things it is a drop in the ocean

Still seems more like pouring water rather than milk to me. Although everyone's taste is different so you might as well try it for nowt.

worth a shot

it tastes like its part UHT milk - to give it that creamier taste. Awesome

Sainsburys are behind the times again, Tescos have been selling 1% fat milk for several years .

What if you go in and there isn't any left and they give you a voucher to get one another time - surely it should be posted in Vouchers as well? :-D

No. Sainsbury's are the first supermarket to launch it so Tesco do not have it yet - although no doubt will copy it soon. And more to the point Tesco are not giving the stuff away for nothing!!!!

They may be the first to have their own brand, but Tesco (and possibly Sainsbury?) have had this stuff for years: theonemilk.co.uk/ind…php

Is that true? I read the following quote about this launch on a ]dairy website:

"The launch of the one per cent milk, already well established in the US and Canada, is a first for a private label brand within the UK market."

They don't appear to know anything about the Tesco's product and say that the Sainsbury's one per cent milk is only possible because of new legislation brought in last year and the previous rules only allowed the sale of skimmed, semi-skimmed and whole milk.

I agree. Tried it already and it just seemed watery and had less taste than semi-skimmed to me. My wife didn't mind it though so it's obviously fine to some.

Milk is a good source of essential saturated fats ;-)

The first to the British market with a 1% 'Dairy product' was Robert Wiseman's with 'The One'

It's fantastic. :thumbsup:

Is it like tasting milk when you have almost none left in the bottle so you just wash it with a little bit of water?

Thanks for the heads up OP.

What a lot of rot. This is all marketing.

1% IS skimmed milk - and any difference you think you taste is psychological. they are just copying the US brandings of 1%, 2% and 4% instead of skimmed, semi and whole milk.

A lot of you seem to have fallen for it hook and line.

Still, free (skimmed) milk to props to the OP.

No.. this is in between skimmed and semi skimmed. Skimmed is virtually zero fat

i weened myself onto skimmed a few year back, anything else now tastes like im drinking double cream

lol - free milk ? Nice 1 Sainsburys, they need to draw new customers in some how as Tesco is taking over the United Kingdom.

Brilliant heads up - thank you!

Their ]annual results show that they must be doing something right. This is more than double what ]Tesco are making.

is this a brand new product or already on sale,interested to know price,hopefully the ongoing price is reasonable .i tried their 4% fat milk 3 lites £1.85 or was it £1.75 i think i paid and the milk wasnt bad at all

No its been on sale since 30/04/2008 in most Sainsbury's stores and is priced exactly the same as the whole, skimmed and semi-skimmed prices.

thnx!

cheers ..................

Thanks for pointing this out, I'll pick up my free pint. It's ok for those of us that are on a diet but what has annoyed me is that I normally get 'one' milk from my local Saino's but they launched this about a week or so ago and since then no 'one' milk on the shelves. I mentioned to a member of staff that they must be trying to force us in to buying their brand but they said 'no, it's just not come in', of course it hasn't cause head office ain't sending it in.

Anyways, the laugh is on them as there is a Farmfoods next door and they sell the 'one' milk cheaper and I do think you can notice the difference in taste.

You misread the figures -
Sainsburys: £488 million (£0.49 billion) profit 2008
Tescos: £2846 million (£2.85 billion) profit 2008

Sainsburys are trailing way behind...

saw this last week in sainsburys, the rack was full and every single bottle had been reduced down to half price as no one had bought the stuff.

I think the problem is that most people don't like change. So in theory, it puts them off trying this. However, if its free, they try, they like/dislike, they buy/dont buy.

Also, Sainsbury's label their milks as 0.1%, 2% & 4%.... It makes people think they are different types, but they are just the same, its just so it can be compared to the 1%, and each other.

Banned

Give me full fat whole milk anyday over this chalky water.
The fat content of milk really shouldnt make any difference to a persons diet, maybe try cutting out the half dozen packets of crisps and countless bars of chocolate if you want to make a difference.

Thanks, will deffinately give it a try.

They are a bit slow are they not. Not sure if its the same case now but it always used to be robert wiseman that supplied the supermarkets with their "branded" bottles. so surely they could have added sainsburys or tesco branding to "the one" years ago?!?!
