I'm sure we've all seen those fabulous Aldi adverts telling us that they're own brand products taste just as good as the brands?
No? (I'm pretending you said no so I can show you this one!)
Well this one is my favourite :D
Hehehe, makes me chuckle every time :)
Well anyway, back to the matter at hand; Own brand products often taste just as good, if not better than their more expensive branded counterparts, I've been buying mostly own brand food for a good few months now and can honestly say that I can't tell the difference.
But I have always had one vice. One vice that I could not replace with an own brand. Not through lack of trying I might add! I've tried many, many times to replace this item but just can't find a valid substitute. Meet my branded nemesis....
Nescafe, Cafe Menu Cappuccino.
I love those little sachets of frothy, coffee yumminess, I've loved them for about 5 years and my love for them has never dawdled. Except for once. When they went up in price to £2.99! £2.99 I tell you! When they used to be £1.50! Now, no matter how much I love those caffeine infused, milky, chocolate sprinkle doused delights I cannot justify paying that much for a morning treat (can I? No I can't) so I set about looking for a replacement. That was about 2.5 years ago...and boy oh boy did I try!
I must admit at this point that I still carried on buying my little box of naughtiness - but only when they were on a BOGOFF deal or reduced to £1.50!
Now...the time has come, I can't believe I'm going to say this but...
I have found a replacement!
Drum roll please....
A round of applause for...
ASDA, Chosen By You Hazelnut Cappuccino!
Granted, these do not come with chocolate sprinkles, but the dash of hazelnut syrup makes up for this. At £1.56 for 10 they're a winner! They taste fantastic, are frothy and have a lovely aroma that warms me up in the morning - WIN! They also come in vanilla and caramel (possibly more flavours but I didn't see in store).
I'm so chuffed!
Pointless post? Not for me! I have been waiting for these coffees for a long, long long long long) time!
