    New products at Aldi:-

    - Vegan Ready Meals (3 varieties, frozen). £1.99

    I find the Vegan Ready Meals OK. I like that they use well-cooked brown rice rather than the white rice that is more common. The Jackfruit Chli was nice, and an interesting flavour and texture. I was less impressed by the Red Pepper and Mango curry, but people who like Malaysian style curries may well like it. It was a bit sweet for me.

    Thanks. That was the one of the three that I was considering trying.

    What has happened to Batts English Mustard from Lidl?
    Not seen it for yonks and finally gave up and bought the Bramwells from Aldi which I am hoping is as good.

    Probably from the same supplier to much the same recipe. Let us know.

    Likewise, I've now bought some of Morries own [no Aldi near]. The Morries stuff is powerful

    Bought 2 lots of carnations from Aldi, one purple one white a few were opening and looked healthy, after 10 days the buds have just started to open...a really good buy.
    Used to always buy at M and S until ours closed, we have a Sainsburys but their flowers are always poor.

    Lidl's got some lovely bulbs in at the moment. I planted a load last year and they were so beautiful, I want even more tulips now. My front is gonna look like Lisse come March :dance:

    It has been a while since I had the one from Lidl so not easy to compare but it is at least as good and certainly better than the one from Asda which I found to be a bit too runny and bland.

    When visiting my parents I like to take them flowers as m'mother does so enjoy arranging & then monitoring & rearranging them.

    I picked up three bunches of Aldi carnations mostly still in bud & she delightedly reported that they had thrived & lasted Over Three Weeks. That much fun with change from £6!

    Meanwhile the Aldi fruit bushes (loganberry & tayberry) are both still alive despite my less than green fingers.

    I have mixed feeling about these, because you need a lot of brambles to get a little fruit in return. On reflection I am glad the ones I bought from Poundland (same brand as was sold in Lidl at a few pence less) didn't take.
