Pancake Mix

On the weekend I had a sudden craving for maple syrup soaked pancakes so I made a quick trip to my local Coles and bought Green’s Pancake Shake Original which was $3.19 for 375 grams and Coles Original Pancake Mix which was $1.50 for 350 grams. 126 more words

Coconut Cream

In this weeks bulk cooking I decided that a stir fry and some coconut rice would be great. The coconut rice recipe that I use calls for 500mls of coconut cream so I thought I’d test Trident’s premium coconut cream which was $2.15 for 400mls and Coles Smart Buy Coconut Cream which was $0.89 for 400mls. 114 more words

Long Life Juice

Today I tried the Coles brand Tropical Fruit Drink which was $1.00 and the Golden Circle Tropical Punch which was $2.26

Both juices were made up of 25% fruit and both were free of preservatives as well as artificial colours and sweeteners. 66 more words

Flavoured Snake Lollies

Trying to impress my little cousin and trick her into liking me I bought some snakes because which little kid doesn’t like lollies?

So being compared this time was the Coles brand snakes for $1.00 and StarBurst Snakes for $3.08. 182 more words

Corn Chips

So after thinking carefully I decided that as well as trying generic brands why not compare Aldi brands to Popular Commercial brands. I know that Aldi brands aren’t exactly Generic Brands but a lot of people may actually consider Aldi to be a generic supermarket as it stocks Unknown brands at cheaper prices which is similar to my concept of trying generic brand items. 118 more words

Hazelnut Spread

Before I started doing my own grocery shopping I never actually realised how dear it was for Nutella considering that the 220gram is $3.69 and for a chocoholic like me that’s the equivalent of 2 sandwiches… And on top of that if you account for my habit of spooning then it’s one sandwich. 251 more words
