Got a leaflet through yesterday.

Never bought anything christmassy from there, our lidl is quite new. Any suggestions of what to buy?

Chilli smoked salmon, cheese coleslaw great anytime of year

Not exactly Christmassy, but their Extra SPecial type range MAple Syrup fudge is utterly, utterly divine..... And only £1.49 a box.

spookysal the pasta wasn't in the Christmas section or in the pasta section so you may have to hunt around for it.

Wow christmas shaped pasta - dc would love!!

I couldn't find a gingerbread house sad but I got a couple of rolls of cellaphane plus caramel waffles. Decent Christmas cards (charity cards, no mention of lidl on the back) with glitter on for a pound. Also got Christmas shaped pasta blush...

Maybe the gingerbread houses come later? This seems to be a second wave of Christmas items in our store.

Been and managed to spend £50! Bought lots of things recommended on here, including the champagne and mulled wine stuff. I now have a massive bag of Christmas holiday nibbles.

Shall have to have a look, DH is very fond of L' <no way can my dyslexic brain spell it> continental biscuit things.

I like stollen and DDs love choc tree decorations.

SantasComingFace Sun 18-Nov-12 09:08:40

I always buy olive oil, tomato puree, tins of corned beef in fact lots of tinned stuff is good. Ours has an instore bakery which is good. The wine is good too and I've bought the meat which is ok.

Love this thread. I'm off to Lidl today to see what our local store has in the way of Christmas goodies. Any suggestions for non Christmassy stuff to stock up on while I'm there?

Selks Sat 17-Nov-12 19:04:08

Of course. All in the name of quality control grin

SantasComingFace Sat 17-Nov-12 11:12:25

Selks, snap. I had to check they were ok.

Selks Sat 17-Nov-12 11:06:39

Um, I've eaten my Lidl mini stollens and how have to get some more for Christmas blush blush

I buy the cellophane to wrap homemade goodies like gingerbread and rocky road to give to clients as gifts. I sometimes wrap jars of chutney or chilli jam in it too. Has anyone seen the gingerbread houses in Lidl this year? We don't have Aldi here yet. I'm after one this year I didn't get the Ikea one it looked rubbish.

amarylisnightandday Sat 17-Nov-12 07:21:03

I also bought the 99p choc truffles. Oh good god I will never lose any baby weight!!!!! Amazing! If I could not eat them for long enough I will be serving/giving these at Xmas but my post baby body dictates I can't go near lidi again until frankly, next Xmas!

If you arnt trying to lose weight but some white choc ones imediately.

I did both Aldi and Lidl this morning for the Christmas bits:

In Lidl I bought:

Gluhwein
£12.99 Champagne (Which best buy) - Sold out early last year.
Tree chocs
Choc santa for stocking
Choc coins also for stocking
Choc balls for advent calender
lebkuchen
Mini stollen
Panettone - Also sold out before Christmas last year in my area.
The Grinch!
Some Traditional looking decorations
Some very non traditional Christmas window stickers for dd's bedroom blush
Festive Jelly sweets - Really lovely shapes and colours which is surprising. DC will like choosing which shape they want.

In Aldi I bought:

Big choc reindeer - for stockings (to go with Santa)
Gingerbread house

Do they have the gingerbread house kits this year? I like the look of the cellophane wrap too.

amarylisnightandday Fri 16-Nov-12 18:03:45

I've been! I was stupidly excited. We bought stollen, the fancy cellophane, Xmas cards, choc decorations, pretty straw decorations and loads if tasty choc type items. It was worth the trip. Ooh we aldi bought outdoor dairy lights for £10 to go on the big Xmas tree shaped tree by our front door which dd is now bursting with excitement about - I figured I probably won't find them cheaper. Xmas trees with fairy lights you see out and about ate dds v favourite thing about Xmas - more than the presents (wells up) he he

amary I got a clear roll, then two with Christmas patterns on. Still clear but with gold swirly pattern and silver Christmassy pattern. 5 metres each for a pound. Bargain smile

VoldemortsNipple Thu 15-Nov-12 17:56:47

Thanks mummy1986 I ran out at lunch time and bought 3 for me and 4 more for the girls in work. I didn't have time to look at food, although I would have just eaten it all tonight anyway grin

HazeltheMcWitch Thu 15-Nov-12 17:47:13

ssaw2012 I had the big ones. I like big biscuits better than small biscuits. For obvious reasons. blush

ssaw2012 Thu 15-Nov-12 16:22:54

HazeltheMcWitch, I know the little lebkuchen packs which are slightly different from the big packs. Big lebkuchens coated in dark chocolate and the small ones coates in some crunchy icing which I do not like. Once you buy the big ones you will see the difference.

The deluxe olive pate stuff is delicious! I recommend the chic covered nuts, gingerbread biscuits, shortbread.....wrapping paper etc...brill
