    Lidl I agree the spud salad is brilliant as is the ham and yoghurts and tinned new spuds (not mushy or full of black eyes).
    They also do 18 packs of tissues which don't break up in the washing machine!

    In Lidl I buy the naan breads, pitta bread & bake at home 2 packs of bagettes. All between 39p & 49p and have good dates on them. Handy to keep in cupboard as well.

    Aldi 'mars' bars are called Titan (a moon of Saturn) and their 'snickers' are called Racer (Marathon:rotfl:)

    I just love their branding :D

    Gianni's cornish ice cream £2.49 for 2 litres in Lidl is delicious.
    It's quite funny that a German company sell cornish ice cream under an Italian brand name :)

    Frozen, they also do hereford beef burgers but not all aldis stock them. The hereford ones are delicious, highly reccommend them!

    Aldis pasta sauces are very nice too.
