Are we sure they're pineapples though, and not grapefruits with a tree stuck on the top?

I'm telling you man, those horse burgers were the tip of the iceburg.

Watch out at the till though. I bought one on Monday and only realised after I'd got home that I'd been charged for the large pineapple at 1.

Which is still a good price for a large pineapple, and what I have been paying in Lidl for months.

I checked this morning and the pineapples in Morrisons are slightly bigger than those in Aldi so being cheaper as well swings it for Morrisons.

I normally cut off the top and bottom then slice off the skin all round, I then quarter the pineapple through the core and slice off the parts of the core from each quarter and dice the flesh of the fruit that remains,

I did get a pineapple corer but it was plastic and too flimsy, I will need to look out for a steel one.

I got one at Morrisons yesterday also while there I looked at the meat counter and there was a sign saying Topside at 3.40 a kilo.So I thought great I'll have some of that.When I asked the butcher he insisted it was 7.00 a kilo and it had been priced wrong.After a discussion I said ok I won't bother.Walking around I kept thinking well if its priced wrong its not my fault When I went to pay at the checkout the young lass said tell them at CS so off I went and told my tale and the manager there was very helpful and I ended up with three joints of topside for 10.00 virtually half price ,so they have gone into my DDs freezer I feel that just by being polite and standing my ground I have won a small victory.The sign was written in 5" high letters on the counter and when I asked the butcher if anyone else has spotted it he said no I was the only one The pine apple is delicious by the way.First time I have shopped in there as its not the closest to where I live

Thanks for this one savethepandas. I don't usually go to morrisons as it is not local to me but yesterday I was passing so popped in a got two pineapples. Also very good value in morrisons compared to garden centre passion flowers at 2. These are much more expensive in the garden centres and are very easy to grow - great climbing plants and very exotic looking for 2!
