    Bought the Floralys Aloe Vera supersoft toilet tissue in the Super Weekend a few weeks ago, I wont be buying that again, it is rubbish.

    It says 3ply on the packet but it is so thin that I need to use twice as much as the Nikki tissue and also, it wont tear at the perforations very easily

    Aldi's Holly Lane range is made by Mr Kipling. Though I haven't eaten this stuff for ages. I remember going to Aldi once and they had both MK and HL Battenberg cake next to each other and they were identical - bar the MK one which was 20-25p more, At the time of me looking at both - a customer picked up a MK one and I said they are the same as the HL. Customer's reply "Don't be stupid"

    Interesting, isn't it, that it's often the people who can least afford to shop at Morrisons/Tesco/Asda who refuse to shop anywhere else.

    When A and L first opened here, did the products have English translated stickers on most of them?

    I shop for my produce in Asda as they keep for longer. For lunch, I had some raspberries from Asda dated 17th. No mould. Aldi's would have mould on them on the day

    I work in retail and some of my customers don't shop at A or L as they don't like the speed of the cashiers scanning and put off packing away on a work top high shelf.

    Another reason is that they don't seem to think customers want to buy a few items and have to queue up with customers buying 70 plus items. Though credit to Lidl for having self scans
