    Has anyone told Tesco that they can advertise till they're blue in the face about how they are matching Aldi's prices, but the till receipts say otherwise?

    I'm more of a Lidl fan browsing the Thursday specials aisle.

    Tesco own brand food is bland.

    At least Aldi's has some taste to it.

    I agree. Aldi "corale" baked beans are better than most other makes, and only a squid for four cans(y)

    :)

    I prefer Lidl. But there are a handful of things at each that the other does not sell.

    I don't like Aldi meat, especially the steaks. Vacuum packed. Spoils the flavour. Goes liverish.

    Also generally poor quality.

  12. Aldi I tried once, found their bread etc pretty nasty as well as stale. Lidl I couldn't handle the scrum, nor the layout and that items for sale change so often. So, tesco & sains it is. I prefer to know what I want to get, where everything is and get out of the shop asap!

    I've had click and collect from tesco these last few weeks, lucky to get. I don't know if it's my imagination but it seems a very expensive way to shop - spending amounts I'd never do in store.

    We are buying Tesco click n collect.

    The food is variable -some potatoes have been awful
    Chicken thighs are rather weird tasting
    Tesco mango squash is great
    Blueberries are sometimes 100% or 50% extra free
    They don't sell cooking apples WTF

    I prefer Lidl to Aldi
    Lidl meat is good

    My wife prefers Waitrose -pre pandemic she did all her shopping there.

    i used to give my friend petrol money to take me to lidles 6 miles away now he was overly tight and i was too generous and i would offer him £11 and he would accept [based on an offer off £5 for local up to 2 miles and £10 for 6 miles for a taxi one way]
    most freinds would take perhaps half what is offered but he took the full £11 [journey plus tip ]
    any way the main point if you get an asda annual mid week pass it costs 46p for a delivery [£24 divided by 52] in my instance i could save between £8 and £10 on shopping at lidle so a no brainer use asda and even giving the driver a £1 tea voucher i am £2 better off with no early starts when my freind took me

    Waitrose is our treat at Christmas. Not for the products they sell, but the chilled, unbusy shop floor.

    Other places are heaving and shoving but W is cool calm and collected.

    Many thanks for that, I did find those......however although the package says 'cooking apples', the actual apples themselves are not, they are jonagold eaters. I don't know why they don't sell Bramley apple cookers.
