Mobile Cereal

I went to Tesco yesterday for some bits and bobs. dd had requested coco pops, I couldn't believe the small box was 3 😱 needless to say I didn't buy them.

Anyhoo my question is why is cereal so expensive?

Probably because a lot of people will pay a premium for brand names as they think they're better than the supermarket own version. We buy Aldi Coco pops, frosties, Weetabix etc and are very happy with them. The kids like chocolate shreddies too, but I'll only buy them when they're on offer. I simply refuse to pay full price for branded cereals as I just think they're overpriced.
Out of interest, why didn't you get the Tesco version of Coco pops instead?

Completely agree, the cost of branded cereal is just horrendous. I am sure I saw Golden Grahams the other day for about 3:80.

I never buy branded cereal, we always get the 3 for 3 offer in Tesco. You just have to be careful as some of the boxes are smaller in weight than the others,... and I do like to get value for money.

No idea why it's so expensive though 🤷

We already have Tesco co co pops in the house. Yeah I agree the shops own brands are just as good for less money.

dd had seen the coco pops advert and only wanted them for the "free" toy.

It is a puzzle why they cost so much. We get the Tesco 3 boxes also. I would rather the extra money was in my pocket than the supermarkets. 3.80 thats shocking 😱

I have noticed when I pop to my local Tesco its the brands that are left on the shelves and the stock is low on supermarket own versions.
