Posh foods fail taste test.

POSH supermarket foods triple the price of normal ranges on average but "don't guarantee a better taste".

Yesterday, watchdogs revealed products packaged as "Best" or "Finest" scored higher than standard ranges in just over half of foods tested.

Good Food Guide inspectors said Asda's standard Wensleydale cost pounds 4.32 a kilo, but the pounds 12.25-a-kilo Extra Special version "tasted worse".

Tesco's Finest chocolate sponge costs a pound more than in their normal range and tasted "no different".

Cheaper Safeway smoked salmon "gives more flavour for 50p less".

Quiches were the biggest letdown across stores, including Sainsbury's. M&S food was judged best overall.
