    I suppose the toilet roll is reasonably good value. But otherwise another disappointing week.

    Lidl are really losing their edge to Aldi.

    But they are not whole large cucumber so you shouldnt really compare.

    Only other places I can see them on mysupermarket are

    Tesco 75p for 200g
    Ocada £1.65 for 200g

    About every other week you say it's disappointing on the Lidl or Aldi offers.

    This is true. I'm disappointed because there was a time, not so long ago when their weekend offers really were worth getting out of bed for! So to me, this appears to be a marketing scam.
