    Check dates when buying goods like Lurpak on offer, I know that they go longer than the dates say but it might well be nobody is buying it at the higher price so they are trying to get rid (as someone suggested). It might not be of course. Alas I feel like we live nearer the country Iceland than a store (we don't but we do live in the Northern Isles so no Iceland near us!). :)

    I don't really get the Lurpak spreadable fervour that people have. It's pleasant enough but only 64% butter. Why not just buy 100% butter (eg Tesco or Sainsburys) at the standard price of £3.50/500g? You don't really even need a spreadable version in this warm weather.

    I don't actually like Lurpak but I posted it as I know a lot of people do.

    As regards the BB dates as long as they aren't Out of Date then they can be frozen.

    I posted about it on Tuesday but went for it a day early hoping to get the pensioner discount as it was showing on the Iceland website a day early. I hope they still have some left next Tuesday, so I can get a couple of tubs to put in the freezer.
