Washing powder (have used it for ages, is fab), nappies, potato salad (mmmmmm), bratwurst (takes me back to my days in Berlin......), frozen wholetail scampi, fruit juice, tinned tomatoes. I avoid their baby wipes (v highly scented) and their fresh meat but I think most of the rest is fine.

LadyTophamHatt Tue 16-May-06 17:19:07

PinkKerPlink Tue 16-May-06 17:21:12

oh gosh i got all excited

alex8 Tue 16-May-06 17:21:27

which washing powder? There are loadsof types and the one I got wasn't very good.

prosecco is nice

someone on here recommended the pesto frozen pizzas that were very nice

a friend recommended their curry sauces I think, said there were hardly any odd e no. type ingredients

PinkKerPlink Tue 16-May-06 17:22:03

washing powder = itchy red blotchy child in our house

Blossomhill Tue 16-May-06 17:48:00

I also buy orange juice in glass bottle

mini chocolate bars called mister choc with a milky flavour

Is it really that much cheaper though?

prettybird Tue 16-May-06 18:49:42

It really is much chepaer for food - check the other stuff. 6 mini cartons of apple juice are 89p, tomatoes on the vine are cheaper than you would get ordinary tomatoes at Sainsbury's, the mini cartons of mulit-vit juice are currently half price at 64p.

The Cava is back to £3.69 (it was £2.72 for a long time), but it is perfectly respectable.

Parmesan and mozarella are also much cheaper.

My grocery costs are nearly half what they used to be: a combination of doing listsand menus, andonly going to Sainbury (for the expensive stuff ) once a fortnight.

oooh I nearly posted about Lidl's a couple of days ago. This week they have a sandpit in their leaflet. Was £37.99 - save £18 and pay £19.99. I shall be there on Thursday morning. We need a new one.

I like their deli products - lardons, continental cheeses.

I also like their pasta sauces.

Their coffee is a bit rough, but manageable for a pound a packet.

Juice and fizzy (or still) water is a giveaway.

Their biscuits are good, but I try to show restraint. And also their continental sweets.

Fresh flowers - a bargain.

I only really go to Aldi/Lidl when they have a special that I am interested in, and I tend to pick up the above when I am there.

Their fruit & veg is good value too - all class 2, but still cheaper than you'd think.

Their household products and personal hygiene products are cr@p, IMO. Their wine is too rough, even at £2 a bottle. Cereals don't pass the child test.

I have used their non-bio washing powder for ages with no problems - but have developed horrific allergic rash in unmentionable areas from that new posh Comfort fabric softener with almond oil in!!
