    So means 58% is rubbish.

    Using Aldi's SS Traditional Pork Sausages - £1.89 for 400g (£4.73 per kg). I cannot see from the front of the pack how much meat content is in them. Using 90% as an easy example. So 360g is meat. That is £5.25 per kg of meat.

    Richmond sausages - 908g for £1.99 (£2.19 per kg) - 42% meat, £5.22 kg of meat.

    Though 2.16 times more expensive per kg the SS sausages meat kg is only over 0.5% more.

    Sometimes Richmond sausages are more expensive per meat kg than the premium sausages!!!.

    Similar applies to burgers as well.

    Quality over quantity any day.
    I do enjoy a bit of maths on the forum, but the 908g of Richmond sausages is 16 Sausages (56g), whereas the Aldi (which I've had and are very nice) are only 6 Sausages (66g).

    I can imagine that for a lot of people, 16 Sausages is going to win over 6 Sausages based solely on quantity.

    It would be nice if Richmond sausages had as much venison in them as Richmond Park, but it cannot be.

    Nothing free in my Aldi this morning sadly! However, it was very quiet and there was an awful lot of stuff (fruit, veg, bread & meat) reduced to half price. Unfortunately not a lot of which I needed, though I did pick up a couple of packs of chicken fillets reduced from £2,99 to £1.50 which I was happy about.

XXL weeks have still had the old version (100 instead of 80 packs) - the last couple of times so bought boxes at a time.

    Don't buy the large 6.5kg packs of Almat washing powder that they currently have as a 'special item' at £8.99, e.g.

    https://www.aldi.co.uk/almat-bio-washing-powder-6-5kg/p/064314006718200

    they're around 20% more expensive (per kg) than the standard packs (2.6kg @ £2.99) which they sell all the time:

    To my surprise - XXL week in our local Lidl and the Baby wipes (and things like giant XXL shower gel) etc all out so 2 boxes (24 packs) of the old 100-for-80 purple packeted wipes. (Aloe Vera ones are great!) Superb. Made my day.

    If XXL in your shop get a pack of the purple packet and by the 'current' green 64pk one and night, dawn and day the difference.
    PK!
