    Hi Jane

    What is an Express?

    Mary

    Sorry enlightenment ..... A newspaper!

    yes a newspaper, the daily express

    how about this thread
  • If you intent to be a regular shopper at Lidl, I suggest you sign up to receive their weekly e’mail. Then you wont have to rely on the Express for your ‘£5 off £30 shop’ voucher as they send it in the e’mail for you to print off.
    Some of their wine’s are usually a good bargain.
    Marmalade is the best I’ve tasted.
    Veg’ and fruit are a must.
    Oh! And did I mention the wine..Hic!

    :beer:

    Put the kettle on. ;)

    that pretty much is what lidl does here if i read your post right
  • Chilled meats, salamis etc are amazing, as are fruit/veg, milk, huge tubs of Greek yoghurt, olive oil, toiletries etc. We have yet to be dissappointed with anything. Rarely step foot in Tesco or Sainsburys these days.

    Aldi black and green olives @ 39p a jar are really nice. Not only that the jars make lovely containers for herbs and spices.

    Cheap fruit juices
    Some of their tinned fish
    tinned tomatoes/passata
    antipasti/italian vegetables in oil; they do artichoke hearts (if no-one else has raided them), wild mushrooms, and peppers. great on Hm pizza or with pasta.
    Cold meats - dry cured hams and salamis
    Smoked salmon and gradlax and cured trout
    Bottled lemon juice
    Tinned beans (bortolli etc)
    Olives
    Wine
    Bottled gherkins - came top in one Sunday supplement assessment
    Some vegetables and fruit
    Crumpets.

    If you are after them, cheap frankfurters

    When they have them, some of their indian side dishes are good - bombay potato and dahl.

    Their discount cola makes good loo cleaner

    When they have goat's cheese it is good.

    I am told their lobster is yummy but they have not had any in ages.

    Pollack packs.

    What did you say about their cola and ...loo??? That is really interesting!!!

    Try their Coquette Chicken Soup with pasta shells and vegetables. 800gr for 89p
  • I went today & bought mince, 3 lots of Cathedral City Mature cheddar at £1.74 each, 2 x large Bisto Beef Gravy for £3, 2 bottles of wine, packet of 6 Muller Lights yogurts for £1.20,a beef joint & lots of Fruitshoots for the kids packups which unfortunately they have over charged me on so I will need to go back for a refund on those.

    Thanks for the Headups about the Express voucher & also the signing onto their offers as I wasn't aware of either.

  • Don't know if you buy energy drinks at all but theirs is the only one my son will drink apart from Red Bull and is only 29p a can.
    Their salamis and hams etc are always good value and tasty.
    Honey and jams are lovely.
    Do find their fresh fruit doesn't last very long.

    Happy Shopping :D
