Con­sumer ex­pert and shop­ping edi­tor Giselle Wain­wright has scoured the shelves to find the ul­ti­mate own-la­bel ranges so you can save a packet with­out com­pro­mis­ing on qual­ity

Closer (UK) - - Money -

BREAK­FAST CE­REAL

Tesco Honey Nut Corn Flakes, £1.45. “This favourite break­fast ce­real is less than half the cost of the top brand, but you could never tell in a blind taste test.” SAVE: £49.20 a year based on buy­ing two boxes a month.

MAR­MITE

Mor­risons Yeast Ex­tract, £1.88. “Spread­ing this on your toast could save you nearly a £1 on the lead­ing brand. Fans will be just as happy with the salty taste and spread­able con­sis­tency.” SAVE: £9.12 a year if you buy a jar per month.

KETCHUP

Sains­bury’s Tomato Ketchup,

60p. “It’s dif­fi­cult to mimic the na­tion’s favourite, but Sains­bury’s does the best ver­sion. Sweet and tangy, you also get way more for your money than the top ketchup choice.” SAVE: If you go through a bot­tle a month, you’ll save £15 a year.

NAP­PIES

Aldi Mamia new­born nap­pies, 85p for 24. “Es­sen­tials like nap­pies can soon add up, so keep­ing costs low with­out com­pro­mis­ing on qual­ity is key. This range is a mum’s favourite, thanks to their great fit and ab­sorbency – and you get more for your money.” SAVE: Up to £327.60 a year, based on two packs a week.

WASH­ING-UP LIQ­UID

Aldi’s Mag­num Wash­ing Up Liq­uid, 49p. “It cuts through af­ter-din­ner grease eas­ily and leaves plates gleam­ing.” SAVE: Based on a fam­ily buy­ing two bot­tles a month, you’ll save £24.24 a year.

CHOCO­LATE SPREAD

Aldi Nu­toka, £1.09 for 400g. “This in­dul­gent choco­late spread has the same thick con­sis­tency and nutty flavour you love, but you’ll save your­self more than £2 a time.” SAVE: £24 a year if you buy a jar a month.

MAY­ON­NAISE

Asda May­on­naise, 70p for

500ml. “Mayo is a fridge sta­ple and ev­ery­one loves the branded ver­sion, but it’s pricey at £2.96. Asda’s own-brand tastes great and spreads and mixes just as well as any other.” SAVE: £27.12 a year if you buy a bot­tle ev­ery month.

MILK CHOCO­LATE

Tesco Ms Molly’s Milk Choco­late, 30p. “Ms Molly’s is Tesco’s new bargain con­fec­tionery brand. So far, their dupes of bis­cuits and choco­late bars have been spot on, but the milk choco­late is the best su­per­mar­ket down­grade I’ve found for best for price and taste – you get that gor­geous creamy, milky taste for a frac­tion of the cost.” SAVE: Com­pared to buy­ing a bar a week of the lead­ing brand, you could save £62.40 a year. ● Giselle is the edi­tor of The Sun’s loy­alty scheme, Sun Savers.
