    Another thing - if Aldi/Lidl keep having to bin certain flavours from mixed cases as date is up, that's more costly than having individual cases of the 2-3 flavours which actually sell. Even more so if they hardly ever reduce these good selling flavours!

    Lidl frozen take away pizzas @ 1.79 are delicious and I would say as close to a takeaway pizza you can get. Nicer than any other supermarket even the freshly made supermarket ones. 
    I didn't get where i am today by not reading moneysavingexpert.com

    Read some posts on this thread about mixed cases. Bought some cottage cheese from Lidl. Mixed cases are of plain and low fat. Then another mixed case of chives and pineapple varieties.

    Plus a Simply... (budget line) plain one too

    That's fortunate. I bought the one and only tub of cottage cheese (plain, budget) left in my Aldi today. maybe Aldi and Lidl have different suppliers as stock has been low in Aldi for several weeks. 

    Week 3 of no prunes in Aldi today too.

    Continuing my negative experiences with Aldi fruit, the latest EE easy peelers oranges are from Cyprus and live up to their name, however despite being dated to the 18th they are dehydrated and pithy inside, another poor option.

    Should have submitted my Aldi satsuma to Guinness World Records 2-3 years ago - 34 pips in one satsuma. Had some EP satsumas and weren’t EP at all. Largest piece of peel came of was similar to a 20p coin.

    I saw half an outer of Batt's in Lidl earlier today amongst a sea of Heinz.

    I'd bought a bottle of Hubbard's from Sainsburys instead and that will last me until the kitchen is due to be decommissioned!
