As part of Wellbeing Week, the Student Advice Service is setting our students a challenge.
Can you really taste the difference in everyday store cupboard favourites? And if you can, do you know what the true price difference is?
We often get sucked in to eye level shopping in the supermarket, picking out familiar brands and relying on the local ‘convenience’ store, but this comes at a cost.
We have 2 baskets of shopping (as pictured) of pretty much the same products in terms of weight and description and we want you to tell us what the price difference is. One is full of premium brands and the other is a basket of replica items from a range of stores.
1kg Basmati rice
10/12 vegetable stock cubes
160 tea bags
6 pack ridged crips
750 ml mayonnaise (made with free range eggs)
500g whole wheat spaghetti
1kg porridge oats compared to 1 pot Oats So Simple
