I did a price comparison at Lidl Litherland , against Tesco Litherland this afternoon , and found Lidl a lot more expensive on what I was looking for . . If they keep telling people they are cheaper , people tend to believe them ! The only item I found cheaper was washing up liquid by 1p. I did not buy it so do not know whether it would perform as well as Tesco own brand . I still trust Tesco with my weekly shop .
Check pack sizes r the same as Big4 - Lidl do smaller packs making like-for-like comparison difficult. Their packs of mussels in sauce, featured on TV appear cheaper, but the pack is 450g, all other Big4 stores, 500g - ditto some w/e fruit & vege offers, which I agree go off quick. Lidl UK bacon has a high water % & the UK sausages a low meat content, typically 60/70% some EU sourced products , Black forest dried ham etc, are good value. Their French/Spanish/German themed weeks seem like a good idea but a lot of stuff is often left over at reduced prices.
The dried cured bacon and gammon at Lidl are not just good; they are first class. And FAR cheaper than elsewhere. W are discerning and prefer Waitrose but Lidl always now gets a visit ftom us when in UK.
I've been to Aldi and Lidll. Cheap food REALLY means cheap. You get what you pay for. Aldi AND Lidll food is very dire to say the least it tastes nothing near as good as Tesco or Asda and their fruit and vegetables do not last as long swell. It goes off and very quickly. I have shopped there once and will never go the again. Test it yourselves.
Perhaps the answer is a trip to Tesco Specs... All offers have an end date in tiny writing on the bottom of the promotional sign MRW, SBRY etc, as well which I always read, sometimes putting off a bulk buy til another 3 off 20 Tesco voucher voucher off comes into play as well. Only amateur shoppers don't check their bills -always put the promo offers thu FIRST to make sure you get the discount you expect :)easy to have them canceled at this stage.
Hello Von Clinkehofen, or shall I say consumer. I see you hav not changed dosage. Anyhow good to see you still kicking the same bracket. I think you r right being optimistic on Tesco , should they start extracting some£ from their property structures., but that might take some time and after family silver is sold of what then?
