I prefer Tesco.

Some of it is, some of it isn't. But generally speaking, since you tend to get what you pay for... YANBU

YABU. And boring. Eat what you want. Shop where you want. Just don't start yet another boring thread about it.

I think it is ok.

YANBU but the confectionery is actually really nice. The rest I can leave.

I like their bin liners

I tend to think of them as "save in 2-3 products, then spent money saved and far more time going through a proper supermarket where you can get everything you need in one go"

BTW all their olives, sundried tomatoes, etc I find discusting, they are cheap but they come in cooking oil instead of olive oil.

I buy mostly fresh, unprocessed stuff so find very little difference. I have noticed that fruit and veg from Aldi keeps better than the same from Tesco so do wonder if it's fresher

Lidl does the nicest jam and marmalade ever, ever, oh and fruit chews. Don't have Aldi.

I shop anywhere and everywhere, aldi is fine for some things. Tesco is shite, what I can't get in aldi/farm shop I get in Booths or the co-op. Not cheap but edible.

well sometimes when you cant afford tesco, any food is better than no food!

It's bloody brilliant. tesco is really shite, the most shite of all the supermarkets. I love lidl, reminds me of living in germany ( a bit).

Aldi steak rocks. Nice cheese too.

their frozen peas are quite nice

abbierhodes Wed 13-Apr-11 22:38:23

Wasn't trying to be nice...and adding NOT to a sentence to confirm you are being sarcastic went out in the early 90s.

Food is food. If you cook properly, your basic ingredients are the same most places. Lots of people have to shop in lower priced supermarkets out of necessity. Tesco are a blood sucking corporation. Do I need to go on explaining why I think YABU?

hardhatdonned Wed 13-Apr-11 22:38:24

Their frozen deserts are second to none

flippintired Wed 13-Apr-11 22:38:36

honestly anyone who thinks tesco is good needs their head examined.

YouaretooniceNOT Wed 13-Apr-11 22:40:04

OK abbierhodes you win

flippintired Wed 13-Apr-11 22:40:13

german sausages are ace, frozen deserts ace, cooked meats ace, rollmops ace, veg ace, juices ace, toiletries ace, cheese and dairy and puds ace and twice weekly non food stuff ..... ace.

Aldi do an awesome chocolate bar. Can't remember what it's called but my mum buys me ten every Xmas and birthday!
