    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.


    The old thread is here:

    I think I was looking at the ingredient list on the revese, and by quick calculation at the checkout deduced that the sugar content could only be 16% max. The ingredient list on the reverse of the pink packet looked scarier - can't find an image online to verify this though!

    Sugar is the 2nd ingredient in the berry Granola , and lower down in the Nutty , but only because there are a lot more nuts ( and less Oats ) in the Nutty and less Berries ( and more Oats ) in the Berry .
    Sugar content is very similar - Berry 21.5% , Nutty 19.7% and calorie count is 447 per 100g in Berry and 468 per 100g in Nutty
