Tesco Golden Syrup - around a third less than Lyle's.

Syrup is Lyle's! Would you really want to see this jar, which just says 'I am cheap' in your cupboard instead of the lovely traditional tin. No.

Yes. It would be saying to me ....."Look how much I saved you on rip off Lyle's syrup"

Lyle's tastes better and is only a little more expensive. I'd vote hot if this was maybe 40p.

Sorry - but yes. Do you really have friends who judge you according to your syrup? Lyle's is a rip-off price. This isn't. And it's pretty much identical. Try it, and you'll see.

My friends don't look in my cupboard. I want to impress myself. A can of syrup may stay in a cupboard a year or more . It's not exactly something most people use in bulk. The Lyle's tin is a work of art, and gives pleasure every time you see it staring out of the cupboard. This Tesco stuff may well do the job just as well, but to save a few pence a year, there is no way I'm selling out to a pretender. At the moment, the beauty is only a fraction more expensive than the wallflower.

voting cold. i just checked the tesco website and lyle syrup is cheaper.

cheap syrup tastes horrible !!!
dont be fooled into thinking that cheap syrup tastes as good as lyle`s syrup because its nowhere near as good especially on your pancakes.

for cooking yea i agree cheap syrup is fine as the rest of the ingredients mask the crappy taste of cheap syrup but for the once a year you have syrup with pancakes it has to be lyle`s as the taste is no comparison.

Stupid reason for voting cold as you haven't compared like for like. Small jars of anything are always likely to be cheaper than large jars. Duh!

Describing the taste of value syrup as "crappy" or "nowhere near" the taste of Lyle's seems peculiarly excessive to me - both are simply viscous with a sweet sugary taste. There may be a slight detectable difference, but it's not like wine is it? Syrup snobs surely need to have their noses rubbed in it.
