    Great 'What's Hot and What's not at Aldi, Lidl & Netto' Hunt revisted 25th Sep 08 at 4:42 PM
    What's this about?

    Super-cheap supermarkets Lidl, Aldi and Netto smack the bottoms of their big name competitors when it comes to price. The problem is that their products can be hit and miss.

    This is all about rating their best deals

    To beat this, three years ago, we asked MoneySavers to rate the good products from the bad (see the orginal hunt). The results formed the What's Hot and What's Not at Aldi/Lidl/Netto guide.

    Now we want to rate the products again and need your help

    Three years is a long time, and so we need your help to do it again. Please click reply and put in your recommendations.

    The best format is like this
    • Supermarket: Detail which you're talking about
    • My top things to buy are:
    • My top things to avoid are:
    Even if someone else has mentioned a product, please include it, as the number of mentions helps us see what's good and what's not.

    I always find the frozen pizza doesn't taste the same as the shop ones.. plus they are not cheesy or doey enough imo (I find frozen pizzas go too hard compared to the takeaways)

    You've got to try Chicargo town "Takeaway" pizza then. I love Dominos and Pizza hut etc, but this Chicargo town stuff (that I get from my local cheap freezer shop - Jack Fultons - for 2.49 a pop, to be very comparable.

    Even at full price in Tesco @ 3.78 it's cheaper than ordering in.

    I am firmly across the line. I won't impose my values on you if you keep away from mine.

    I like the thin and crispy ones in Lidl. I think they're called Supreme, there's 2 in a pack for €3.59, probably about 3 in UK. Just 12 mins in the oven and they're delicious.

    P.S. Called Pizza Speciale (with pepperoni and salami) not Supreme sorry.

    While I'm here I also recommend the Harvest Basket Potato Gratin from the chilled cabinet. mmmm .... 30 mins in the oven, really nice.

    I must just pop by to say how impressed i am with the doner kebab from Lidl. For 1.49 for 2, if you're on a budget but still crave a kebab these are really rather good! Not as big as takeaway ones but still yummy. You get the meat, the pitta and the chilli sauce but I added tomato, cucumber, mayo and pepper. I'm definitely going to get a few more for the freezer for those end of month 'i fancy a takeaway but can't afford it' moments!!!
