Cheapskate Tip #3


Supermarket economy brand chocolate is of surprisingly good quality.

The Sainsbury’s Basics dark chocolate is 52% cocoa solids and contains real vanilla. It has real depth of flavour. In fact, it tastes better than some quite expensive brands, although not as good as the really super-premium stuff. Not bad for 27p!

The Basics milk chocolate is perfectly OK too, although not quite as close to replicating the expensive brands.
