Penny Choose: Sainsbury’s Basics Pineapple Pieces
Time for another little treat that you can enjoy guilt-free, even if you’re really strapped for cash before payday. Today it’s a tropical treat, and it’s only 25p. Yes, 25p! It’s good for you too, but don’t let that put you off…
I’m picking Sainsbury’s Basics pineapple pieces in juice, 227g, and if you haven’t tried it yet then baby, what are you waiting for?
Yes, I will admit that the can isn’t pretty, but you don’t eat the can. You get loads of tasty pineapple for your money, and they’re in juice instead of syrup so it’s a healthier option. I’ve been known to strain the juice off and put it into cooking and cocktails too.
Anyway, in blind tastings it tastes just as good as any super-fancy brand, so it’s kind of silly to pay more. Add to fruit salads, puddings etc, or whizz it up in a blender for granita, ice lollies, or pina coladas. You can’t go wrong, so enjoy.
