This week they were advertising premium rum for 10, so I tried it. I certainly won't be buying it again, even on special offer. It was technically better than their standard rums, though was a very...

They're the supermarket I visit the least frequently, and the staff have to be the laziest and chavviest, and I'm not aiming to be extreme in that. They just are.

Cocoa doesn't contain any sugar, so you can add your own until it's just sweet enough to drink but isn't anywhere near as full of sugar as drinking chocolate. Tesco's own brand cocoa is 2 for 250g,...

They're not, but why would a person even do this? Aldi's normal brands aren't competing with supermarket own-brands, they're competing with big brands, and so aim to equal or exceed big-brand...

Whatever wine you get, take the bottle to a priest to have it blessed, then tell the vet it's the blood of Christ. Also slip him a box of thin rice cakes at the same time, without comment.

Both tins of mushy and marrowfat are much better in Lidl than Aldi. It's funny how some things are much better in one than the other.

I used to assume they both stocked the same stuff under...

I noticed before the shower gel disappeared from my local Lidls, it changed from being just a shower gel to a shower gel and shampoo combined. I assumed this was a sign they'd got a new supplier who...

There seem to be further cuts to some of Lidl's own-brands. The 'Cein' range of hand creams, face washes and shower gels have gone, in favour of big brands that cost twice the price. All dried egg...

I like re-heated chips. They're dryer and have an extra flavour to them.

I wouldn't want to eat them all the time though. But they're a nice treat the morning after you've made them. I never leave...

For cooking, President. It's the only one that tastes nice, for me. However, I simply can't stand it as a spread.

For a spread, I'm fairly easily pleased, though I prefer salted butters. Aldi's west...

Accuracy.

You've no idea how much baking powder is in self-raising. Whereas if you mix your own, you do. Proper chefs just use plain flower and add whatever additives they need.

They've started doing 1L bottles of their own-brand Pimms for 6, however the alcohol content is 17.5% rather than about the 22% of the normal 70cl bottles. So it's clearly a different drink inside....
