Asda logo£8 cheese advent calendarIncludes 24 cheeses, available in Asda stores

In store

If you thought the Christmas cracker jokes were going to be the cheesiest thing this festive season, think again, as Asda will be offering an £8 cheese advent calendar – behind each of the 24 advent doors, you'll find a mini individually wrapped cheese.

Asda's cheese advent calendar has been getting a lot of press and social media coverage so we thought we'd take a peek behind the doors to see if it's actually good value, or a deal that stinks.

What cheese does it contain?

The 24 cheeses are 20g each and are made up of five varieties –  Red Leicester, Wensleydale and cranberries, mature Cheddar, Jarlsberg, and Applewood from Ilchester cheese makers in Somerset.

Is it good value?

Asda cheese advent calendarAt £8, the advent calendar works out at 33p for each mini cheese. As each cheese is 20g, that's 480g worth of cheese in total – equal to £16.67 per kg.

To put the cost into perspective, we looked at the price of each of the cheese varieties at the big supermarkets and found standard-sized blocks ranged from £5ish-£12ish per kg.

Of course, mini cheeses do generally cost more per kg and we checked out the price of other brands which sell mini cheeses such as Cathedral City, as well as Ilchester's mini cheese selection (which includes four of the cheeses included in the calendar), and the price per kg was £13ish-£15ish.

While admittedly our valuation isn't overly scientific, it appears Asda's cheese advent calendar is a bit more expensive than the usual costs of mini cheeses per kg, and a lot more expensive per kg than the total equivalent weight of a block of each cheese variety.

If you do go for this advent calendar, bear in mind you'll need to find room in the fridge between the turkey and sprouts to store the calendar – though cleverly it's in a book-style, which means you can tear off one half after 12 days.

Asda logoSafety notice: 'Little Angels' newborn nappiesAsda offers refunds after products removed from sale

Wed 26 Jul

Asda 'Little Angels' newborn nappiesAsda has removed some of its own-brand nappies from sale as a safety precaution, after images were shared online allegedly showing a baby's badly irritated skin after wearing one.

According to a BBC News report, Asda shopper Jordan Bartliff complained saying his three-week-old son suffered a "chemical reaction" to the Little Angels newborn nappy.

While Asda hasn't yet ordered a product recall, it is offering a full refund to customers who have concerns after buying the affected nappies. It has temporarily removed them from sale.

Lizzy Massey, Asda's head of own-brand products, said: "Our hearts go out to the Bartliff family and hope their baby son makes a full recovery soon. We're in touch with his dad and have collected the nappies so that we can test them along with others in the batch. We are still investigating.

"We take our responsibility to parents most seriously and as a precaution we have decided to remove our Little Angels newborn nappies from sale until we know why this happened."

How do I get a refund?

Asda says if you've concerns about any of its Little Angels nappies, you can return them to the store you bought them from for a refund, or call its customer services team on 0800 952 0101.

Asda logoAsda £3.50 wonky veg box*£6ish off odd-shaped seasonal veg, in 550 stores

10,000 avail

If you're concerned about food waste and believe beauty is on the inside, then you might want to see if you can pick up a wonky veg box for £3.50 in store at Asda*. The boxes, which are available in 550 stores, contain peculiar-shaped, odd-sized seasonal veg that wouldn't win any beauty contests - but should be just as nice on the inside.

Asda says 10,000 boxes are going into 550 participating stores (see the full list) every month - so it's worth going quickly if you want the pick of the wonky crop.

What's in the box?

Each box is different but Asda tells us an example might contain about 500g carrots, 1kg potatoes, two onions, two courgettes, one cucumber, one cabbage, 300g leeks, 300g parsnips and three peppers - enough, Asda says, to feed a family of four for a week. If bought normally, this would cost £6ish. Though there are other ways to save on veg, see MSE Coupon Kid Jordon Cox's blog on buying individual veg rather than pre-packaged, Aldi's Super Six and Lidl's vegetable offers.

Why is Asda doing this?

Celebrity Chef Jamie Oliver says 20%-40% of quality fruit and veg produced by UK farms is wasted in part because supermarkets think we're a superficial bunch who won't buy 'ugly' fruit and veg. The big supermarkets are now under pressure to cut food waste.

Wonky veg boxes are great if you want to contribute to cutting back on food waste, help farmers, and save money (about 30% off Asda's standard prices, it says - but you may find it's cheaper to buy veg individually elsewhere).

Let us know if you found one of these boxes and what you think of it on Twitter or Facebook.

Asda logoAsda: MoneySaving tips & tricks*Incl using supermarket coupons and tracking offers


There are always ways to save money at Asda* so even if there isn't a cracking deal out there that works for you, don't assume you can't cut your costs further.

Ways to save include:

  • Supermarket coupons. Make sure you check out our supermarket coupons page to save on your shopping.

  • Compare the cost of your trolley. Compare the cost of your shopping trolley at the major online supermarkets with MySupermarket*. Prices are often reflected in stores, so it's worth doing a check to see which is cheapest for you.

  • Take the Downshift Challenge. The phrasing and language used hypnotises us into thinking most costly is best. While the packaging looks more opulent, look beneath it and sometimes you won't be able to tell the difference (often it's made in the same factory). Take our Downshift Challenge.

  • Track if it's really a bargain. Most of us know just because a supermarket lists an item as "on offer", that doesn't mean it's cheap. The trouble has been sorting awesome offers from poor promos. To help, MySupermarket* charts products' price histories to show if a 'was' price is realistic.

  • Time trips right to bag huge yellow sticker discounts. If you spot a yellow sticker discount - fantastic. Grab it and use it quickly as it's a saving on perfectly good nosh. See when Asda normally reduces its produce in our Cheap Supermarket Shopping guide.

  • Check out similar retailers, eg, Sainsbury’s, Aldi and the other major supermarkets. If you're not committed to buying from Asda, check out our deals from AldiTescoSainsbury'sLidlMorrisons and Waitrose, where they may have a better offer.

  • Try haggling. We polled 1,400 MoneySavers to find out in which shops hagglers have most success. Supermarkets did feature, so it's worth a go. Find out more in our Haggle on the High Street guide.​

  • Had a problem with Asda? There’s a free online tool you can use to complain – it helps draft, manage and if necessary escalate your complaint. It’s offered by a firm called Resolver, which we like so much we work with it to help people get complaints justice – you can use it to complain to Asda*.

If you spot any hot deals out there we have missed (we are human after all!), email us at or via MSE Facebook and Twitter @MSE_Deals.

Asda logoPeppa Pig £25 toy advent calendar*At Asda. Includes toy characters and accessories


Here's an advent calendar that could have your little piglets squealing with excitement – Asda* is offering a Peppa Pig toy advent calendar online for £25.

Peppa Pig toy advent calendarWhat's in the advent calendar?

Suitable for age two and above, it contains 12 mini Peppa pig character figures and 12 toy accessories such as sledges, a snowman and a Christmas tree (see image – click to enlarge).

Is it good value?

Well, we'd be telling porkies if we said that's easy to answer, as they're mini toy figures and these particular ones aren't sold separately – but it works out at £2ish per toy with an accessory.

We've spotted one full-size Peppa Pig figure with accessory for £3.99 at Smyths, and a pack of 10 full-size figures (without accessories) for £16 when you click and collect at John Lewis*, while Peppa Pig playsets usually cost £10ish-£30ish.


This isn't the cheapest way of giving a little Peppa Pig fan some toys this Christmas, but the advent calendar is fun and unique, and you could end up spending more on 12 different full-size figures with accessories bought individually – so it's somewhat of a personal call as to whether you think the £25 price tag for minis is worth it. Let us know what you think on Facebook.

What other quirky advent calendars are available?

See our Quirky advent calendars blog including wine, cheese, Baileys, Pringles and Kellogg's calendars.

Wimbledon logoFresh strawberries & cream round-up*Cheapest prices for 400g punnets & 300ml single cream


If you're stocking up ready to cheer on Andy Murray at Wimbledon (or just want to enjoy them anyway), we’ve served up a round-up of the best supermarket prices for 400g fresh strawberry punnets and 300ml fresh single cream pots to net you the best deal.

Here's what we found:

  • £1.19 for the strawberries at Lidl (find your nearest), in stores only (cream 79p)
  • £1.29 for the strawberries at Aldi (find your nearest), in stores only (cream 79p)
  • £1.55 for the strawberries at Tesco*, in stores and online (cream* 85p)
  • £1.69 for the strawberries at Iceland*, in stores and online (cream* 84p, or 94p double cream* free when you buy two packs of strawberries)
  • £1.75 for the strawberries at Sainsbury's*, in stores and online (cream* 85p)
  • £2 for the strawberries at Waitrose*, in stores and online (cream* 90p) 
  • £2 for the strawberries at Morrisons*, in stores and online (cream* 90p) 
  • 90p for 300g (not 400g) of strawberries at Asda*, in stores and online (cream* 84p)

It's always worth checking the 'price per kg' to see if you'll save more with a larger pack (only if you'll eat them before they go off). Morrisons* and Waitrose* were the only stores we found a larger, better value punnet.

They're £2.90 at Morrisons for 600g and £4.50 at Waitrose for 1kg, which works out £2.17 cheaper per kg at Morrisons and 50p cheaper per kg at Waitrose if you're after more than 400g. So the ball is in your court what you choose. 

If you're after dairy-free, 250ml pots of Alpro cream soya single (chilled or longlife) are 74p in Asda*, 85p in Tesco*, 90p in Waitrose* and £1 in Sainsbury's*.

Pimm's logoPimm's one-litre bottle £10 (norm £16-£20)*Or try cheaper Pimm's-a-likes for £7


Wimbledon's started and supermarkets are having a Pimm's price war, so don't get court out and pay more than you need to. We've run around like a ball boy/girl picking up the best prices we could find for the popular summer drink at major supermarkets...

Cheapest Pimm's one-litre

Serving up the best offer is Asda* and Morrisons* – you can get a one-litre bottle of Pimm at Asda* for £10 (norm £16) online and in stores (find your nearest*) until Wed 19 Jul. Morrisons* also has the one-litre bottle for £10 (norm £20) online and in stores (find your nearest*) until Sun 16 Jul. Go quick if you want it as Pimm’s is rarely this cheap, so could sell out fast.

The next cheapest we found was £12 at Tesco* (norm £16) until Mon 17 Jul and £15 at Waitrose* (norm £21) until Tue 5 Sep.

If you're looking for some strawberries to go with your Pimm's, see our Fresh strawberries and cream round-up.

Downshifting alternatives

While £10 is an ace price for a one-litre bottle of Pimm's, there are cheaper alternatives. Here's a couple of Pimm's-a-likes you can try if you want to downshift:

Sainsbury's also has its own brand alternative, Pitcher's*, for £12 for a one-litre bottle. This beats Pimm's on price if you're shopping at Sainsbury's (where the one-litre bottle is £18 until Tue 18 Jul), but Pimm's is currently cheaper on offer at Asda.

For more on cutting your shopping costs by ditching premium brands, see MSE's Downshift Challenge.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
