#1 Morrisons 100% Peanut Butter (Available in smooth and crunchy)
I love this product so much that I recently shouted out about it on Twitter (yes I have Twitter now, my name is @Jillettuce based on a stupid nickname my friend Joel gave me).
You know me, I love peanut butter (please see proof here and here) and my love of peanut butter is matched by my hatred of palm oil. And having principles is often expensive.
But Morrisons are (to the best of my knowledge) the first supermarket to introduce an own brand 100% peanut, peanut butter, so well done Morrisons.
RETAIL FACTS – £1.78 for 340g
#2 Morrison Prawn Crackers
The boy and I like a Chinese ‘Fake Away’, or we like to cut costs on our Chinese takeaway by having prawn crackers in stock.
And because I am both a glutton and a cheap skate I know that these are the cheapest prawn crackers based on price per gram (or they were before inflation occurred). And they are yum.
RETAIL FACTS – £1 for 80g
#3 Morrison Chickpea, Sweet Potato and Kale Pies
The boy likes a gravy based meal on Sundays, and pies feature heavily.
As I don’t eat meat (I’m a pescetarian) I need a suitable substitute so I don’t get food envy, and these bad boys do the job.
Filling and tasty, and good in gravy.
RETAIL FACTS – £1.42 for 2 Pies (360g)
#4 Morrison Frozen Diced Swede
The boy and I love a bit of swede, usually in our Sunday ‘Gravy Based Meal’, and I think this is the best based on price per gram. It is yet to fail us.
Things to do with Swede. Scones and Cous cous.
RETAIL FACTS – 60p for 500g.
#5 Morrisons Savers Family Size Facial Tissues
These are the best value facial tissues from a supermarket (that I shop with). Cheaper then Tesco’s own brand equivalent and one more tissue a pack.
RETAIL FACTS – 65p per 226 tissue pack
#6 Morrison Curry Flavour Noodles
The boy likes these noodles. Also available in various other flavours.
RETAIL FACTS – 28p per 85g pack.
#7 Morrison Savers Pasta Sauce
In my post about my favourite Tesco own brand products I divulged that the boy (and again, ‘the boy’ refers to my 36 year old boyfriend) doesn’t generally like pasta unless it is cooked in a gross sugar and salt enhanced ready made sauce (whereas I like my home made sauce ). As I refuse to waste my money on something I could make for pennies with a tin of chopped tomatoes, this is our compromise. The boy likes it, I like it. And it is cheap and tasty.
RETAIL FACTS – 38p per 400g Jar.
#8 Morrison Soup
These three, plus the Carrot and Parsnip soup I would have featured had The Boy not eaten it, make up a frequent staple of my food shop with Morrisons. They are very cheap but do not lack in flavour and they were for my emergency lunches at work when I had been too busy to batch cook something.
RETAIL FACTS – 45p per 400g tin.
#9 Morrison Savers Mature Cheddar Cheese
My favourite cheese. It packs a punch. Some own brand mature cheddar cheeses are basically quite mild in flavour, this is strong and mighty.
RETAIL FACTS – £5.50 per 1KG.
#10 Morrison No Added Sugar Summer Fruits Squash
The boy’s favourite squash is Summer Fruits flavour. Every supermarket has a Summer Fruits squash. I chose Morrison’s as being the creme de la creme as it is double concentrate (therefore it lasts longer), comes in a 1.5 Litre size bottle (which is usually what the boy and I get through in a month) and is almost always on a multi buy offer.
Well done Morrison’s.
RETAIL FACTS – £1.24 per 1.5 litre bottle (frequently on a 2 for £2 offer)
So there you have it, my favourite own brand buys from Morrison’s.
Do you have any supermarkets you would like me to investigate what the best products are?
