I was partial to a bit of Supermarket Sweep with Dale Winton when I was younger. Therefore, when Jack’s Supermarket got in touch as asked if I’d like to work with them I was quite excited! Immediately images popped into my head of me running about the Jack’s Supermarket Wakefield, throwing random items into my trolley and the odd blow-up banana too. The reality wasn’t quite that (social distancing and the people of Wakey thinking I was a madwoman) but it was a lot of fun checking out their festive favourites!
Festive favourites & Everyday Essentials
This year more than ever, people require some festive fun and Christmas cheer. Unfortunately, people are also struggling more than ever too and have far less to spend. Luckily, at Jack’s your money can go a lot further! Jack’s gave me a £40 voucher and asked me to go wild in the aisles!
Despite being in Wakefield for around 18 months, I had never visited Jack’s before. I am, however, a regular customer of Tesco and get a weekly online shop from there. Jack’s is part of the Tesco family, provided discounted products with the same great taste and quality.
Having already started my Christmas shopping, I aimed to pick up some sweet treats for the big day and as stocking fillers for family and friends. I also needed some essentials so was looking forward to seeing what weekly bargains I could get all year round.
On entering Jack’s Supermarket Wakefield, I was presented with the usual festive chocolates – Celebrations, Quality Street, Heroes, and Roses for just £3.50 a tub! Do you know which I chose? I don’t know about you, but in the Roversi house, we can go through a fair few tubs of chocolates over Christmas so they are a festive favourite so I also think they’re an essential too. Haha!
Their middle aisles feature “When It’s Gone It’s Gone” with a whole host of Christmas goodies – candles, elf on the shelf accessories, gifts, treats, and more. They go out on a Thursday each week and, just as they are advertised, when they are gone, they’re gone. Fantastic deals, great quality, and a range of products. I picked up Sienna a doctor themed jigsaw book for her birthday (21st December) for just £5. She is going to love it! I also picked up a jigsaw for each child for just £1.50 each! Such a great stocking filler.
I filled my trolley with Malteaser reindeers, selection boxes, Smarties treats, Cheeselets (almost went for Twiglets) and I couldn’t leave without a box of their award-winning mince pies. Mince pies and custard win hands down over Christmas Pudding/Cake for Christmas Day dessert. Who’s with me?!
All of Jack’s chicken, turkey, beef, and lamb is 100% British. There is a fantastic range and definitely will be going back to stock up on meat. On this trip, I selected some chicken breast for our pasta tea, eggs, chocolate chip brioche, shower gel, and body scrub for me and Lucas’s fave cereal – milk choco pillows. He was well chuffed when he came back from his Dad’s and saw them in the cupboard. The bargain buy of my trip was a huge box of wipes for £5. I was down to my last pack of wipes, any parent knows that’s an emergency situation.
It’s worth pointing out (as I know a lot of parents follow me) that packs of Jack’s nappies were just £2.59. I’ve been back since my initial visit and tested them out. They are passing the Sienna test!
I’ll be back!
Sometimes I don’t need a “big shop” to justify an online shop but the nearest Tesco is a good 25 minutes from me. Jack’s solves that problem for me so I’ll be able to just pop down when I want. Super convenient!
I like to think I grabbed a nice mix of festive treats and everyday essentials in Jack’s Supermarket Wakefield. Not only do they stock Jack’s branded products but they’re building up a range of ‘Britain’s Favourite Brands’ at outstanding prices so it’s well worth paying your local Jack’s a visit and seeing what bargains you can bag!
