Madness Tesco Garibaldi biscuits

I like biscuits,
I like Garibaldi biscuits.

I went into Tesco today to get some bits that the wife had messaged me to get and I thought I'd get something to have with my cups of coffee this week while at work, so I picked up a packet of own brand Garibaldi biscuits.

Thankfully the swear filter picks up all this because, the taste ****** bland, have no *******raisins in them.
They are the worrst garibaldi biscuits I have ever had the missfortune to buy.

I have had those as well.

They are made so cheap they taste like a mixture of flour, and dead flies.

I really like fruit shortcake but as I walked down the aislw with that packet in hand I saw the Garibaldi and thought they'd make a change.

Next time I'll stick to my 1st thoughts.

Yes I agree. Having compared quite a few Tesco and Sainsburys own brand products, my vote definitely goes to Sainsburys.

But if cheap, high quality biscuits light your fire, get yourself up to Aldi and try some of the 'foreign' ones that they sell. You won't recognise the brands or the styles, but some of them are really, really good.

I like Aldi, buy a packet of something that you like the look of from the picture and then taste to see if you like it. Steer clear of the beans though, very watery.

Tesco are not to be encouraged.They seem to get planning permission to engulf and wipe out real shops in towns such as Stalham in Norfolk where instead of there being local shopkeepers all the profit goes away to their HQ.
this is interesting Tescopoly - Home
Also , when somebody at work brings cakes in because it's their birthday and they buy Tesco , the stuff is very disappointing.Not being ungrateful ....

I coudn't agree more, I hate tesco's, they are a very successful business, but at a tremendos cost to many other's. They want to take over the world. I stopped shopping there 6 year's ago, I don't like their philosophy.
