Got a leaflet through yesterday.

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

Selks Thu 15-Nov-12 07:07:25

Mini stollen! They are the biz.

mrsnec Thu 15-Nov-12 07:12:19

Agree with the above and the tree chocs and the Panettone.

SantasComingFace Thu 15-Nov-12 07:16:46

You know I've never eaten stollen!!

I'll look out for these things!

amarylisnightandday Thu 15-Nov-12 07:18:49

I am a stollen addict!
Tree chocs what are they?

ClaimedByMe Thu 15-Nov-12 07:20:20

My dp bought the reindeer steaks and had them for tea last night he loved it, I am not eating poor rudolf! Panettone is good I got my Christmas crackers from lidl last year, can't think what else!

I get most of my Xmas stuff in Lidl. cheese, procutto, choccy santas, mulled wine, those chocolate covered ginger bread stars etc etc. The only thing I ever didn't like was the goose we got one year, very stringy. Everything else is ace smile

SantasComingFace Thu 15-Nov-12 07:23:38

Ooh, I don't think id fancy Rudolph steaks either.

Do they sell mincemeat? Didn't like the look of the stuff crappy tesco had..

mrsnec Thu 15-Nov-12 07:37:13

Tree chocs. Chocolate baubles you're supposed to hang on the tree but you eat them all while you're putting the tree up! Also don't know what it is about Lidl this year but ours is selling out of all the offers really quickly they had gammon joints for Xmas and 2€ Shiraz which would have kept me very happy over Xmas but they sold out of both in 1 day!

amarylisnightandday Thu 15-Nov-12 08:02:37

Oooh thanks! I want to go and see! Damn you c section on Monday!

DowagersHump Thu 15-Nov-12 08:26:43

Also gingerbread house. Their gingerbread house is the best smile

SantasComingFace Thu 15-Nov-12 08:29:26

2€ Shiraz? I'm guessing you aren't in the uk mrsnec? That would keep DP happy!!

I bought the ikea gingerbread house yesterday!! sad

VoldemortsNipple Thu 15-Nov-12 08:44:17

Ooh have they got any cellophane rolls in? I got two huge rolls last year for 2 pound each!

SantasComingFace Thu 15-Nov-12 08:50:05

I'm going shortly I shall report back!! grin

mrsnec Thu 15-Nov-12 09:20:31

Good luck Amary! No not in the UK. In Cyprus but I think Europe is a week ahead with the offers. It's worth checking the website first. At least you should get the vino a tiny bit cheaper than normal. That Shiraz is worth a try even my wine ponce friends and family like it and DH says Lidl Bourbon is nicer than JD! We buy all xmas booze in Lidl. Not seen mincemeat in our Lidl. Considering making it this year definately the cheapest place for ingredients for that though.

They also do little bags of gingerbread biscuits. I bought a bag, the kids didn't like the biscuits, so work got them instead. They lasted about 10 minutes.....

MotherfuckingMorrisMan Thu 15-Nov-12 10:31:35

Oh god buy the lot. Everything they sell.

I have bought a load of stuff from there, stollen, lebkuchen (have you seen the prize of that in M&S - far more expensive than lidl), chocolate santas, gingerbread, brazil nuts, cakes aplently, big chocolate discs covered in hundreds and thousands, mad soups, balsamic vinegar, jams, pickles.

Lidl at Christmas is brilliant (is Aldi as good for the Christmas stuff?)

ImperialStateKnickers Thu 15-Nov-12 10:35:24

Speckular biscuits, my Dutch Granny used to bring them back with her when she went to visit her sisters, was so happy to find you could get them in Lidl. I've not spelt it properly, but that's the pronunciation.

mummy1986 Thu 15-Nov-12 10:56:27

Ive just got back from lidl and they do have those cellophane rolls in...i brought 3!

MotherfuckingMorrisMan Thu 15-Nov-12 11:00:06

What are these cellophane rolls?

mummy1986 Thu 15-Nov-12 11:03:52


MotherfuckingMorrisMan Thu 15-Nov-12 11:09:05


Thank you.

mummy1986 Thu 15-Nov-12 11:12:04

im using mine to put round the elf on a shelf parcel from santa and on the xmas eve hamper
my mum is doing hampers for the elderly people in a home near us, so it will be used for that too!

ssaw2012 Thu 15-Nov-12 11:15:06

Big round chocolate lebkuchen. They are delicious. Also they have lebkuchens in red and blue boxes. They are nice too. We like the ones in the red box. They are coated in dark chocolate.

Their Christmas puddings are gorgeous. They are about £2.99 and full of nuts and fruit. We buy about 5 and eat them though the year. We already bought ours in September.
