    Edit: I went looking for it too!
    Here's the story in the Daily Mirror, confirming what many of us were fairly certain about:
    Hula Hoops in Aldi Snackrite bag
    Bought them today, n just had some, n although they were good, they deffo tasted thicker, n drier than normal hula hoops, still nice though :)

    Aldi now do a 'very strong' bread flour, 1.5 kg for 75p . Their usual strong bread flour is first class. Trying out this stronger flour sometime this week

    Lots of different types of Wright's 500g bread mix for 75p in the Specialbuys section, inc. parmesan and sun-dried tomato.

    I noticed that the Bramwell's mayonnaise in jars is 65p as against a smaller quantity in the squeezy tubes for 75p

    Aldi now do Quixo stockpots similar to the Knorr stockpots, I think they were beef and possibly chicken, 85p for 4. Their Quixo stock cubes have been repackaged, not sure if they have changed.

    It's one syn for the 350g pack. It's in the fresh section. Though you will be lucky if you find it on days where SW have meetings in the area.

    The prawn curry in the same mixed case is 4.5 syns

  • Aldi had boxes of Swiss milk chocolate truffles half price at 99 pence yesterday. I would recommend these - they were lovely very similar to the red Lindor truffles

    I gave Aldi's very strong flour a go - it's supposed to hold more air bubbles. I normally get really good results from their strong flour anyway. I got the same results as regards a rise and air bubbles.
    The texture was definitely closer and less crumbly though, and I could cut slices easily for the toaster, so that was a big plus.
    Unfortunately my tummy didn't quite deal with the high gluten well, although it may have been something else, I suspect the bread. I did eat a lot though, so it's my own greedy fault..
    Anyway, if you make your own bread look out for the aqua coloured bags of flour alongside the normal light green striped bags. It's 75p - great value.
    Follow the Aldi recipe on both bags too - it's a good one and the olive oil makes a big difference.
