Well I didn't learn anything from having the voucher, but I did learn something from this thread, and other thread.
NEVER EVER SHOP IN ALDI OR LIDL
Because once you do the fruit and veg in every other supermarket seems to go bad as soon as you enter the store.
Every body who gets bad fruit and veg at any supermarket always shops at aldi or lidl.
I think everybody likes to think they shop in the best supermarket, no matter what it is. But it seems that the only way some aldi and lidl shoppers can claim they are the best is by dragging down the other supermarkets.
They used to claim aldi was 30% cheaper, then they just claimed it was cheaper. Now they are saying it is the same price as Morrisons, well for apples at least, but Morrisons apples are full of grubs.

People can shop where they like. Over the years Ive shopped at aldi, lidl, tesco, asdaI didn't say they couldn't, I just recommended they don't.
Ive never had problems with fruit or veg at aldi, some people have, I havent. The quality of fruit and veg can be poor sometimes across the board. Ive seen yellowing broccoli for example in a few storesI wasn't commenting on the quality of fruit and veg at aldi, I was asking why some aldi shoppers always claim the f&v in other supermarkets is very bad.
But even if you choose not to buy your fruit and veg from aldi, prices are cheaper at aldi across the boardNot apples, we've already had an aldi customer confirm they are the same price. But they claimed the apples in Morrisons were full of bugs.
Aldi is extremely competitive as a supermarket, you don't need to be aldi obsessed to see that.I wasn't commenting on their prices, I was asking why some aldi shoppers feel the need to put down other supermarkets to make aldi look better?

Honestly dislike our local Morrison's intensely, although I will admit there is some stuff which is good - prepacked pate, some of their sliced continental meats - but mostly use for branded stuff which I can't get elsewhere (I am addicted to coconut Perle de Lait).
In store, I avoid the fish counter (skanky and often unattended), and now also the fresh fruit, which is tasteless and hard compared to the other supermarkets in town - the strawberries are like turnips with no smell whatsoever. The deli also gets a miss from me - I have food allergies and the request to know what was in a certain snack item was met with a careless shrug and an 'I don't know, we don't have ingredients list' - enough to make me walk away and vow not to go back.
I also find Morrison's really, really, expensive. Inordinately so. Even when I did my main weekly shop there, I never thought the bill was particularly reasonable, but the then-partner insisted it was 'the best shop'. :shrug:

This is all the things wrong with my local Morrisons. It always looks like a jumble sale, the selves are all messed up and no one has tidied it up. The staff are fairly helpful but are few and far between. I only go in when I'm desperate and can't justify getting the car out for a trip to Sainsburys. It's a shame because there is a huge Morries about five miles away and it's a lovely shop.
