Kellogg's logoKellogg's Variety £4 advent calendarAt Tesco. Includes 24 Kellogg's Variety cereals

In store only

If you want to add some snap, crackle and pop to your Christmas countdown, you can get a Kellogg's advent calendar for £4 in store at Tesco (find your nearest*), while stock lasts.

What does the advent calendar contain?

Kellogg's advent calendar

You get three Kellogg's Variety eight-packs, meaning a total of 24 single-serving Kellogg's cereal boxes including Coco Pops (30g), Frosties (25g), Rice Krispies (20g) and Corn Flakes (17g), with each advent door including a Kellogg's character and message showing which cereal to eat.

Is it good value?

As this contains three eight-pack Kellogg's Variety boxes, that works out at £1.33 per pack. They're normally £2.05 bought individually at Tesco*, and the cheapest we’ve found one pack is £2 at Asda* and Iceland*. So if you usually buy these Variety packs anyway, then it's actually cheaper to get them with the advent calendar.

What other advent calendars are available?

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.

Hipp Organic logoProduct recall: Hipp Organic Fruity O's cerealCheck for affected 140g boxes sold at Tesco

Mon 17 Oct

Children's food manufacturer Hipp Organic has issued an urgent safety warning as four batches of its Fruity O's breakfast cereal (140g) are believed to contain pieces of metal wire.

Hipp Organic Fruity O's breakfast cereal

Hipp Organic says you should not use the cereal if its 'best before' date falls between 19 Jan and 3 Mar 2017.

As a precaution, if you reckon you've bought one of the affected packs (sold only at Tesco), you should refrain from using it and instead return it to the store for a full refund.

No further batches of Fruity O's cereal or other Hipp Organic products are thought to be affected.

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.

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.
