Fantastic alternative with lower sugar content.
For an own brand cereal this was gorgeous. I appreciated the lower sugar content to the Kellog's and found that they stayed a little crispier once the milk was on them (which, for me personally, is a bonus). Really tasty and exceptionally good value for money. Got these as a substitution one week in the weekly home delivery and the kids actually prefer it to the on brand one which is a bonus. The only complaint I have is that I always want another bowl!
Too crunchy and tasted like cardboard

tasty ---gf still though??
Tasty, cheaper than the big brands too. Has the recipe changed though in the last year though, as these and rice snaps and corn flakes used to be listed as gluten free by Coeliac UK as the barley malt extract was low enough to make it safe.It is now no longer listed, I'm sad as Tesco own brand were my staple breakfast go to. Now I'm back to special rip off tasteless gluten free brands!! Or other supermarket own brand ones, losing business... good product though
Move over Kelloggs, Tesco have arrived.
One is instantly struck by the simplicity of the packaging. Sat next to the big-hitters of Kellogg’s on a supermarket shelf, it’s easy to mistake this offering for the underdog. Tesco are simply easing us in to what’s to come. The artwork appears to draw inspiration from Quaker but attempts to redefine the vessel and field genre entirely. There’s a nuanced fragility to it. The bowl sits, unassuming, almost daring us not to take a bite. Cast your eye beyond the bowl and we’re met with a field of wheat; each sheath dutifully standing to attention, patiently waiting to be cultivated as the sun comes out to play. There’s something ethereal about this scene. Challenging, experimental, yet ultimately human. Perhaps this image is a silent reflection on the void within us all? Tesco have me exactly where they want me and I open the packaging with all the fervour of Ryan Gosling tearing off the blouse of a young lover. I am greeted by a complex bouquet of barley malt and honey, complimented by subtle notes of beeswax. As the flakes begin their descent into the bowl, charming aroma gives way to playful pitter-patter as they gently caress the porcelain. This is what I’m here for: a medley of honey-woven and peanut-encrusted maize, adorned in gold and lightly dusted with sugar as if kissed by the first frost of winter. Make no mistake, these are bold flavours - daring, even - but there’s modesty at play this morning compared to its on-brand counterparts that can, at times, be far too brazen with their sugar content in an attempt to remain relevant. What follows is a truly haunting three-act piece of theatre played out upon the tongue; from maiden crunch to humbling crescendo, the whole experience begs the question why other cereal manufacturers aren’t taking risks like this. Tesco’s Honey Nut Corn Flakes are a culinary tour-de-force; the likes of which have been unseen since the advent of Jordan’s Country Crisp.

I'm normally fussy when it comes to own brand cereals but I actually found these rather tasty and for the price I can't grumble. Will definitely be choosing these over the leading brands from now on

As good as kellogs which is twice the price. But why is it never in stock now?
Better than Crunchy Nut
Better and cheaper alternative to Kellogg's Crunchy Nut which has far too much sugar, but what's happened to the more sensible 750g pack??
