    Good and Bad Buying at Lidl and Aldi (***Please don't expire***) 4th Feb 19 at 10:57 AM
    Hi All,

    This is the new Lidl and Aldi buying thread. Please report any good/bad deals, good/bad offers and good/bad products.

    I've broadened the scope slightly, so that discussion of customer service issues and experiences won't be off-topic. But please remember that the thread works best when it's the sum of our knowledge about Lidl and Aldi, and not other supermarkets.

    Thanks.

    The old thread is here: https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5394929

    Well..... it tells you best after the shampoo!
    I suspect they assume you know what to do with usual conditioner that's why they are economical with words.
    I would do either of the above which I have highlighted.

    Generally speaking you don't put conditioner on dry hair (nor do you leave it in, unless told otherwise)
    Despite the instructions, how was it? I haven't used mine yet

    Hugely cheaper than brands, and in reality they’re all much the same thing - people just get conned by branding into thinking they’re somehow different.

    A classic case of emperor’s clothes.

    Today I went to Aldi. Someone took my trolley whilst I was hunting where the food chopper https://www.aldi.co.uk/kirkton-house-food-chopper/p/017410285864300 was (hidden under some silicone moulds) someone took my trolley instead of theirs and had to run around the store to find the lady pushing my trolley with about 8 items she put their herself!! Her trolley which she left by the crisps was a big trolley and mine was a small one!

    Don't Aldi sell small 400g loaves anymore? Not the half loaves of the big slices.

    Not impressed with the SS spicy sriracha tortilla chips were not spicy!

    Do you mean the 400g "5 Seed" white? If so, yes, I have one at the moment (bought on Wednesday). And very tasty it is, too.

    Aldi's Specially Selected Salted Caramel and Praline Ice Cream is absolutely incredible. I can't believe it's only £1.89! It's quite sweet and really luxurious. I'd buy it for the ice cream alone never mind the caramel and praline.

    Forgot to mention that yesterday (19th) all the produce had dates of 20th and 21st. Is this normal?
