Have they changed the recipe for Baileys?

It just seems so watery from what I remember. And it doesn’t feel like it has any booze in it. Is it just me?

MumGoneMild Mon 11-Dec-17 17:37:27

No not just you! Im convinced its been thinned down but no one agress with mefgrin

Have you ever tried the Aldi version of baileys? It's absolutely gorgeous, I personally think is better and it's only £4!! X

I’ve just opened a new bottle of Baileys and had a shot in my coffee. In the interests of mumsnet I will now try it neat and report back.

Definitely not as creamy as I remember

MrsPear Mon 11-Dec-17 18:12:31

Which aldi one ?

Slowtrain2dawn Mon 11-Dec-17 18:14:46

It does seem thinner, but still quite boozy imo. Hic

Thanks @mumgonewild. I aim to please. This bottle won’t last till Xmas so I’ll buy Aldi’s next!

If anything, it's getting me more squiffy than I can remember. But it's also making me ill, I don't know why sad

I haven’t bought Baileys for a while. However, I have just tried the Lidl alternative and it’s really nice.

I came on to say try the Aldi or Lidl cheapo versions (or Fakeleys as well call it) but I see I’ve been beaten to it - I actually prefer it to real Baileys. Less sickly and definitely tastes more alcoholic.

I saw someone do a taste test online a few years back and the Lidl one came out top.

EachandEveryone Mon 11-Dec-17 18:28:46

Oh I need to find a Lidl, I was in nyc a couple of weeks ago when I firs noticed. When you are paying $10 plus tips you want it to last abit don’t you? I thought it was a one off until I opened a bottle the other night. Do you think it’s since they bought in all the flavours?

TheRattleBag Mon 11-Dec-17 18:28:57

I've always found the homemade version much nicer....... only trouble is you could drink it by the pint!

I bought the Tesco version last Christmas and it tasted nice enough, although admittedly I'm no Baileys expert.

EachandEveryone Tue 12-Dec-17 10:40:37

My friend said the same and that there was something in it that made her feel sick. I don’t know how I’ll get through Xmas.

I prefer the Tesco version - it's not as sweet and sickly. To me the Lidl one tastes like washing up liquid fconfused

cakesonatrain Tue 12-Dec-17 10:52:24

Another vote for the Aldi version

SleepingInYourFlowerbed Tue 12-Dec-17 10:56:20

I still like Baileys. Very boozy to me but I don't drink much

PJBanana Tue 12-Dec-17 11:26:48

Both Aldi and Lidl versions are good.

Have you ever tried Coole Swan? Whole different league.

LittleHearts Wed 13-Dec-17 21:19:18

Oh no! Dh is looking forward to a Christmas Baileys!

BarbaraofSevillle Wed 13-Dec-17 21:22:22

I've got the Aldi Specially Selected luxury Irish Cream from last year and it's very nice. Will have been cheaper than Baileys obvs.

PoptartPoptart Wed 13-Dec-17 21:29:04

I used to love Baileys and could easily drink 2 or 3 large ones. Agree that recently it just doesn’t taste the same and after 1 glass makes me feel a bit sick. I thought it was just me getting old but maybe they’ve changed the recipe.

HildaZelda Wed 13-Dec-17 21:30:05

@PJBanana, Coole Swan is AMAZING grin

Aldi one is nice too.
