    How so? Price increases are primarily related to the drop in the value of the pound, and to rising raw materials costs (such as milk). And they're happening across all supermarket groups in the UK - it's not that the price war is over, it's simply that supermarkets prefer to make profits rather than losses.

    The drop in pound is rubbish. We're at the same level we had several years ago. Some people seem to have rose tinted specs thinking the Euro and $ were always much higher but we've had bad periods in the past decade.

    As for the milk rises, we were told all of last year that there was too much milk and farmers were getting a raw deal. Last I heard we still had plenty of milk but suddenly diary prices are shooting up again. I'm presuming milk has risen in price but why the sudden panic when we spent most of last year worrying how to consume the stuff!

    Lidl oat & fruit biscuits the round ones - sweet to the point of not having any flavour. Must about 30% sugar.

    But more so in some than others. All supermarkets need to make a profit but profiteering is different. Some are taking advantage of across the board rises in commodities to sneak in some additional rises in the hope that shoppers are too busy, lazy or stupid to notice.

    I had a voucher for Morrisons, so I thought I'd try their Decaffeinated Instant Coffee instead of my usual Lidl/Bellarom one.

    The Lidl one is far, far superior - nearly as good as the properly expensive branded coffee, and a fraction of the price (was £1.29 for 100g the last time I bought it). I definitely recommend it, and don't be put off if it's still ridiculously cheap.

    Hmm... mysupermarket is saying £1.09 and out of stock.

    One thing I noticed is that Aldi currently have no own label toothpaste. They just currently have Colgate for 79p and Sensodyne.

    The decaff ground coffee is finally back in stock in my Aldi (200g silvery blue packet, £1.69) after being MIA for quite some time.

    Something new - little cube packs of frozen herbs, they only had chilli left in my store. 89p

    The tomato puree has been repackaged, black background tubes now, not white, red, green -tubes are 37p. Think these have crept up a bit in price since last year.

    A heads up for one of the nicest chilled ready meals out, a proper hot Chicken Jalfrezi, bay leaf in with the lovely rice, big chunks of chicken and just £1.49.

    I fancied making a milk jelly (my mum called it mousse) the other day. Hartley's jelly in Tesc0 is 54p, raspberry, strawberry or orange in Aldi is 32p. Tesco no longer seem to make an own brand 'make your own' jelly.
    Tesco evaporated milk 410g is 55p, Carnation £1.20, Aldi is 49p.

    Got 2 250ml Ladies Dove deodorants at £3 on multi buy, great price.

    Also the 4pk kitchen roll on weekend special, thanks to earlier poster.

    The £1.09 small cheeses are gone, now £1.35 in a more limited variety. Didn't seem to do Red Leicester but did have the bigger size at a good price £1.75.

    Very disappointingly the cheese and chive waffle snacks were gone, seemed to be replaced with cheese and chive party mix.

    Same size & price but sadly not suitable for me.

    None of the Cravendale-style fresh filtered milk at all in Lidl today - they haven't dropped that as well from the range, have they?
