lactose free milk at Aldi

I discovered this morning that Aldi have introduced a lactose free milk. £1.15 (compared to the usual £1.35 for the Arla variety). Maybe that is why the Arla one is on special offer at Tesco and Asda! The Aldi one is only semi skimmed thought, and I usually prefer skimmed, so I shall have to come to some sort of decision about semi-skimmed versus paying more.
May spend - £291.40/£320.00
June spend - £106.40/£320.00

    The fresh product tastes slightly like UHT milk to me. There is a UHT version available too.
    have been using it for a good while and I like it in hot drinks. Don't eat cereal so can't comment on that combo. It does keep very well in the fridge once opened.
    I have changed my work-life balance to a life-work balance. :grin:

    I drink UHT milk. Lactose free milk tastes nothing like UHT milk.

    You will either like Lactose free milk or you won't.

    I tried it and nearly threw up.

    To be honest i don't really notice any difference - and didn't when I first needed to swop to it. It's probably a bit less sweet (not surprisingly as lactose is a sugar) so the odd time I've tasted milk (usually drank some of the kids by mistake) that tastes sweet to me now, but I don't notice the difference in tea. coffee, cooking etc.
    The UHT version tastes like UHT milk, but Arla do make little single serving cartons of it which is really useful for going out. It isn't any cheaper than the fresh stuff though.
