    Evening all! We had the first night of our city's Christmas fair tonight, chilly but dry weather gave me the perfect justification for a warming hot dog and chocolate orange crepe, yum!

    I'll be dropping off my reverse advent calendar items to the local food bank tomorrow, and it's made me think that I'd also like to get some gifts for the local children's charities that do collections. If anyone knows of any good places where I could buy some smallish gifts for just a few pounds, please let me know. I don't have children and my niece and nephew only like specific things so I'm really clueless about what would be good to buy.

    The thing I notice is the items that are returning N/A against M. I think Pringles Hot & Spicy (which they bought more of) is unfortunately the only Pringles 200g that M probably doesn't have. They have Cheesy Cheese that A doesn't seem to have (at least not online). I think they lost out on the Sugar Ring Donuts - they could have bought a bag of 6 at 50p in M.

    The CDM Caramel 200g appears not to be had by M (according to msm, price of 1.50 at competitors too much for me). However... is Cadbury DM Tiffin the ONLY 200g Cadbury product (ignoring an advent calendar) that isn't in the 2 for 3 at A? Many other versions are 2 and any 2 for 3 but that one is straight 2 online. Is this really the case - if it's on the mbuy, but somehow has been missed offline, probably by human beings that quite often do an incomplete job, then it could be full prices - by itself or, preferably, mixed and matched with one other version to get more items towards the 8 - vs 1.50 each at S. However maybe there is no need to scramble about trying to find any good items against S at the moment, as the Mullers, in effect, mean you can compare just one other good item you have against S. No need to have eight of your own anymore - just fill the rest of the shop with a variety of Muller Lights/Rice (one of them the Bakery version). Is the Tiffin really on the A mbuy?

    Another one I noticed - this was ages ago and appears to have remained the same online - Tic Tac Cherry Passion is the only Tic Tac at 60p individual in A that doesn't appear to be on the 2 for 1 offer. I've never tried it to find out - is this really the case, that it's the only one that isn't on the offer, or is it in fact on the 2 for 1? Second time of asking, months later. It will probably turn out it isn't on the offer, but there seems no harm checking whether it is. The CDM would seem better though, if online has missed off the offer on the one version.
