The Grocery Items I Buy From ICELAND *COPY MY SAVINGS*

The 5 Grocery Items I Buy From ICELAND *COPY MY SAVINGS* 

Hello all, as you can see from today’s title, I will be sharing with you the items I buy from Iceland, not only because they are great products that I have tried and tested, but also because they are the most competitively priced compared to other main stores.

If you have read my other posts, such as my long organic shopping list on a budget, you will know that I am a savvy shopper and I get thrills when I save money and do not get ripped off by supermarkets. I use I n x i t e as a portal to share the wisdom I have developed over the years to help others to save money, whether it is out of choice or necessity.. I am here to help. If your down with that, you may like to Subscribe to my YouTube Channel.


No 1. Batchelors Super Noodles Chicken Flavour 90g

Apologies for the poor quality of the receipt, you can just about make out that I paid £0.40 each for the noodles (Yes I did buy 5 in one go, I couldn’t get enough of this deal!)

First on my list are these delicious noodles. My favourite of all time is the Chicken Flavour ones, although on occasion I do enjoy the Bacon Flavour noodles. You can see them here. I am aware that they are priced at 80p on the Iceland website, however you can actually get these badboys for 40p each in store (the website does not feature all offers and pricing available in store).

I have proof from my receipt. Notice how I went mad on buying them once I noticed they were a fraction of the cost that other supermarkets were selling them for (I have sometimes seen them as much as 85p each, with an incentive to buy more; such as 2 for £1.50).

Helpful Tip: Download the MySupermarket app to see (99%) accurate daily prices and offers for all of your favourite products. It is completely free, although recently mobile phone users have to tolerate short duration pop up adds every so often. There are no pop adds currently on the website version at mysupermarket.com. You can add the items you love to your basket so you can find them easier next time, and swap the exact same product for a better price at a different supermarket. This app has saved me so much time and money in just a few months. I try to encourage as many people as possible to use it because I know how helpful the app/website can be from personal experience. Gone are the days when I need to take an item back to a store where I originally purchased it because I have found the exact same item cheaper elsewhere. If you want to save yourself some doe without changing the food you love, check it out. Enough said!

No 2. JORDANS Frusli Bars – Juicy Red Berry

These have become my ultimate snack in recent times, because they are enough to satisfy my sweet tooth when I feel like I NEED to snack. I don’t feel guilty at all after eating them because they are quite healthy and contain some lovely oats. They also contain almonds (I don’t like almonds, but couldn’t taste them), so bare that in mind if you are allergic to them or oats.

I only ever get these when they are on offer for a £1 and thankfully Iceland has never let me down, always being at a £1. You get 6 bars in a pack (each 30g), but they wont last you long.. they are very moreish, even for a healthy snack.. Promise I haven’t eaten more than 2 in one sitting.. ;). I shared my love for these tasty bars on my Instagram. You can see on the receipt above that they did cost me £1 (‘Frusli Bars’). I have tried the Blueberry version, which are quite nice as well as an occasional change, but I prefer the Juicy Red Berry ones. There are other varieties available too. I like JORDANS bars for the following reasons (as well as the taste):

  • No artificial colours, flavours or preservatives
  • No added salt
  • Source of fibre
  • Non-GM (not genetically modified)
  • Certified sustainable palm oil, RSPO-1106027
  • Suitable for veggies (my vegetarian pals)
  • They work with wildlife experts and The Princes Countryside Fund to help their farmers manage 10% of their land for wildlife and provide funding to support rural communities
  • The packaging is recyclable

Big up JORDANS! Thumbs up mate.

No 3. McCain The Home Chip Straight 1.5kg

So we all know that McCain’s are the place to go for quality tatters. Naturally, I thought I would get some Home Chips by McCain. Iceland currently offer the best price for these POTATOES (visualise Keith Lemon and it will all become clear..) at £1.80. At least 20p less than other supermakets when they are on offer or 70p less when they are not on offer at other supermarkets.

Of course this was not luck that it ended up being the cost effective option.. I did my research whilst in store, using the MySupermarket app to check this was the best possible price and that I would not be ripped off. I have had these chips with homemade mushroom fu yung and jollof rice that I made the other day. They were absolutely perfect (slightly harder outside for a little crunch, soft inside to melt in your mouth) proving you can’t go wrong with McCain chips. You can check them out on my Instagram (if you like my content, you are welcome to give me a follow. I don’t bite..).

No 4. McCain Smiles 454g

Yes it is McCain again. Apparently Iceland is great with certain brand foods. I bought them for £1, the best price possible, with most other supermarkets selling them for £1.60, unless on offer. I hadn’t had smilie faces in ages, so for me these were a reminiscent kind of purchase. They did not let me down, as can be seen in my Instagram.. getting happy vibes from my food.

 

 

 

No 5. Bannisters Farm 8 Ready Baked Potatoes (1.2Kg)

There seems to be a theme of potatoes.. I didn’t realise I buy most of my frozen potato foods from Iceland. Now we all know.. It must be for a reason. So these round bundles of joys are £3 for an 8 pack (1.2Kg – 25p/100g) at Iceland. No one else seems to sell them, except for Aldi who sell a 4 pack by Bannisters Farm for £1.89 (700g – 27p/100g), which makes the Iceland ones better value for money (£/g) unless Aldi puts theirs on offer (like they did a couple of weeks ago).

I like these potatoes as they are half cooked and only need a few minutes in the microwave (depending on the number of potatoes) to be as if they had been in the oven for like an hour or so. Every time I make my jacket potatoes, they turn out lovely and I now refuse to start from scratch (using raw/uncooked potatoes) and I will not use any other potatoes for my jackets. You know what they say.. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. I think my secret is to cook them slightly longer than the packaging says and add a bit of butter a minute or so before the microwave pings.


Right there you have it.. the 5 items I usually get from Iceland because it is financially advantageous for me to do so. I do hope that this post has managed to help some of you save some money, maybe if not today then at some point in the future.

Please note: All prices were correct at the time of writing this post (9/9/2017).
