Tesco Value Cornflakes, 31p for a 500g box, don't be put off by the "Value" Label, they r very good, just as good as any well known brand i'd say, just had a bowl of them for supper infact, also, u could buy a bar of Tesco Cooking Chocolate for 61p for a 300g bar and make some choc flake cakes, a 300g bar of the cooking choc makes around 30 cakes, so for under a quid you can have breakfast and plenty of cakes for tea thats what I call a hot deal !!,

You must have saved SO much time by missing out the "a" and the "e" from "are".

Well done!

Thanks for the input but you failed to mention the "y" and the "o" from the "u" or were missing also,or was one just so excited to upload catty comment, one must be so proud of when one can spell three letter words, some people have obviously not heard of txt talk, 21st century !!

i'm not trying to be the spelling police, but I think text speak was … i'm not trying to be the spelling police, but I think text speak was invented because of limited characters in a text, and the old phones that didn't have QWERTY keyboards. Maybe that's why some people might have an issue with it being used outside of that context as it causes a degregation of the english language whilst saving extremely minimal time on a full keyboard.



If we're going to get picky the language is English and not english. I overlook things like text speak as, for all I know, the poster is using a mobile phone to update. I think you probably meant degradation rather than "degregation" but perhaps you have invented a new word.

The cornflakes are a good deal, by the way.

Degregation is a word. However, not getting involved in that, i buy theses corn flakes and they are spot on for that price. Heat added.

31p is the normal price so not really a deal as such.

gr8 price and not bad tbh

These are made in the same factory where Kellogs produce their cornflakes

don't let the cat out of the bag, if people start buying these then tesco will put the price up.

I dont know if it's just me but I would be embarrassed pushing a trolly around Tesco packed full of "value" food - I would have to hang my head in shame

This is the best value cereal offered by Tesco - you can't go wrong for 31p for a product like this. However, they have a tendency to be out of stock very frequently in the stores that I have visited.

You should hang your head in shame anyway for giving into the labels.

Been 31p for about a year.These are pretty good & excellent value.They are just smaller flakes compared to Kelloggs.

This may have been the case 10 - 20 years ago. I remember the time when Kwik Save had their 'No Frills' range and not many people would purchase those items.

Personally, I couldn't give a monkey's nuts what other people think. It's the same with 'reduced to clear' foods. In fact, I reckon times are changing now. More people are buying 'Value', 'Basics', 'Smart Price' and 'whooopsied' items. You have to rugby tackle someone these days to get to the reduced chiller section when the 75% off stickers come out.

Value cornflakes are really good for the price.
Their value bran flakes are good also.

Its still RRP and not a deal

That's why Tesco and other Supermarkets have started updating the packaging on the Value/Smart Price range making it look less "Basic" and more attractive than plain white with one or two colours and adding a lot more items to the range of goods available as well.
There are a lot more people out there looking for the best value and buying supermarket own brands (if they are cheaper, and taste ok, which most now do), and all the Supermarkets are now targeting the bargain hunters (like the visitors of HUKD).

Voted hot from me

Some pathetic little thugs in this forum, nothing better to do with your time... huh punks?


Great deal, renews my interest in quality non brand food.

I never said it was a deal. I stated they were good. Read properly.

I don't see what the shame is in saving money on items which are just as good, if not better, than the labels. You use this site to save money don't you? Are you ashamed about that too Ray?

99% of Ray's time on HUKD is spent in the mobile section telling people how bad any phone is compared to the iPhone.

I'll never understand why wasting money is fashionable. If anyone is impressed by brands and labels or cares about what cereal I buy then they aren't people I'd want to know anyway.

Thank you OP & thanks to everyone else too.
I'm on a really tight budget & you're helping me to learn which of the "value" items are good and which aren't, appreciated

These taste horrible, nothing like kelloggs.

true actually. same with crisps made by walkers. they don't pass the quality control for the brand name so are packaged for supermarkets. packaging is a good clue if this is the case as they will look pretty similar in design

Actually Tayto (who now also own the Golden Wonder brand) supply Tesco with it's own brand crisps/snacks.

And Kellogg are one of the few major labels who advertise the fact they don't make cereal for anyone else including Supermarket brands

Sometimes the cheap ones really do taste as good as the branded. And some items, for example the Morrisons & Tescos equivalent of Weetabix, tastes even better than the brandname (imho). Just experiment the next time you go shopping, get your Kelloggs and slip a little box of own brand in as well, nothing ventured nothing gained

Taste pretty much the same 'proper' Corn Flakes, no need to spend more really.

Kelloggs don't make cereals for any other company or supermarket. FACT.

i get these and theyre great.obviously not as good as kellogs but taste very similar to supermarkets own brands

not as such,but its good that people are informed that they can save money by buying these cheaper brand things,and isnt that what this sites about,saving money?

PCDave

Kelloggs don't make cereals for any other company or supermarket. FACT.



But do Kelloggs only make cereals in their OWN factories?

i.e. There are plenty of factories owned by independent companies which produce "own brand" and "branded" products on production lines which are next to one another.

The Lidl Cornflakes are nice, ive recently purchased Lidls Rice Crispies too which are nice also, not sure about Tescos Value Cornflakes tho
