Default Fireworks - Morrisons

These seem to be good offers - anyone bought fireworks from morrisons before? Are they any good?

Hi ,check out this thread for Lidl

I have bought Morrison's every year but the found the mixed boxes to be a bit disappointing and the Rockets whilst ok could be a bit more impressive colour wise.
The Lidl rockets I've just bought are huge and look like they'll give a much better display.

Had fireworks selection box from Morrisons a couple years ago, same brand as they have now, Dynasty. Didn't have any complaints about them myself, were all quite decent. Those seem like not bad deals considering most are buy 1 get 1 free. Shop around though before you buy anything.

Thanks for posting

I will also say that the Lidl ones (the big black ones) are flipping(being nice) brilliant - well worth the money!!!
Then again I love the rockets!

Hi there, hope everyone is ok.
I just wanted to add that the co-op are also doing fireworks for B.O.G.O.F. on selected lines.
There are some good one's and i'll be buying some for my little ones.
Going all out this year with a little 'bona', pan of broth nd a little firework display.
Take care.

Thanks for posting but I would suggest NO ONE to get this. Its a ripoff seeing the great prices in lidl or Aldi. I would suggest to go with Lidl coz of my experience with them, which is they are Great!

The Black Nebula set has about 25 fireworks in for 14.99 and the huge rockets were 5 for 9.99. Hubby insisted on getting the big ones :rolleyes:

They also had smaller rockets, 5 for 4.99 and a smaller selection box also 4.99.
Here I go again on my own....

here is the link. have a look at the one shot boxes as well that they do. Saves someone (usually OH) being stood in garden as wind and rain whips around thEIr head with a wet firelighter :rolleyes:

I bought the 25 shot box for £9.99. They do a 30 shot for cheaper but it's half the size so I'm expecting this box to go off with a

I got the 18" sparklers from Asda last night - 5 for 97p.

And I also got the Blue Apollo rockets from Lidl for £9.99 for 5.

Tesco seem slow off the mark this year, locally anyway!

Just been to Asda and they had their range of fireworks in aswell. Same as last year more or less, the TNT range.

They have a pack of 5 rockets for £2.47! got these last year and they wern't very impressive, but at that price, i had no complaints. Cheap way to pad out your display.

Last year i bought the pack of 2 "Space War" mines at £5.48 (same price this year) and they were pretty impressive! today i bought the smaller mine pack the "Powder Kegs" which were 2 for £2.98.

Asda have 2 types of sparklers, one packet "colour sparklers" is only 43p and the "10 inch gold sparklers" are 98p

They have leaflets you can pick up with the whole range of stuff, the usual rocket packs/selection boxes etc
