Hi all, I was shocked when went shopping to my local Tescos to find that in only 4 days the price of their UHT value ltr skimmed milk increased from 41p to 54p... that's 13p, outrageous I say, so walked for a couple of minutes to Lidl to find they have them still at 41p.
Then checked online prices @ Sainsburys and Asda: their prices are the same as Tescos, so I'm guessing very soon Lidl will increase the price as well, but being UHT milk it will be OK until sometime in March so bought lots. Hope this helps someone.

Why you would go out of your way to save 13p on a product is beyond me. Pointless post.
#5
Hmnn. Not so funny when you have to use due to medical conditions.The saving is spot on wnen you have to buy a case(12 Cartons) at a time . 12X= £1.56 off the shopping bill!!.
#6
Good to have one in your cupboard as a back up if you suddenly run out of milk. Wouldn't go out of my way for a carton though. Heat added.

Completely agree. If you happen to be in Lidl and are buying this stuff anyway then I'm sure you'll see this price when you get to it on the shelf...

gw1mcd has a point, but that's going to be a small percentage of people.

Did you get out of bed the wrong way? Who said you had to go out of your way? I pass by Lidl once a week and usually pick up fruit and veg. I will pick up skimmed milk too now as a result of this post. You are on the wrong site if you think a 25% saving (approx) is not worthwhile. I was looking to stock up anyhow - so good timing.

Skimmed milk in coffee...how revolting!!! :shock:
#10
5 minutes of my time is worth more than 14p.

voted cold.

Mr. Fox: (Dougal's New Boss) You'd better get going, actually. Milk gets sour y'know. Unless it's UHT milk, but there's no demand for that because it's s***e.

Hear hear :)

We don't drink much milk at our house so normal milk would just go to waste.

To be honest the difference in taste is not that bad. If you want bad tasting stuff try Soya milk!
#14
UHT milk is completely sterile and therefore perfect for making your own yougurt (full of live probiotics). Lots of people here wouldn't know a bargain if it kicked them in the balls!
#15
Hardly a bargain, wouldn't go out of my way for this one TBH. But good if you drink lots of the stuff I guess.
#16
GREAT POST voted hot hot hot,we use uht and get 6 cartons per week a saving of 12p per carton soon adds up
78p per week, £40.56 per year.
#17
Good post OP,

I too concur with your thoughts, the rest of the supermarkets profiteering again, tesco had there UHT skimmed back to 41p then up to 52p, GREED!, the reason why the country is in such a bad way financially as so many people dont give a toss about prices, bad luck them .then :w00t:.

good call as a weight trainer i drink a lot of milk, skimmed uht being healthier and having less lactose normally;)

thanks

Good post. Whilst the 13p saving in itself isn't great, some with families may be using several litres a week. As another poster has pointed out, over the course of a year, this could turn out to be a decent saving - enough for a digital TV subscription (or upgrade what you already have), for example.

Heat added.
banned#19
Bargain or Not - I don't usually drink too much of the white stuff, due to lactose intolerance. Also, on the continent, UHT is extremely popular and the fact that it sells and is on the shelves - might be an indicator.

However, as a lurker I have found that real facts are lost on some of the posters on this site - they tend to impose their will, without trying anything new and would like us all to turn like them and think like them - I just don't get it...

Just to make it extra-clear, in case some of you spit your venom in my direction - I don't feel passionate about this topic or product, whatsoever. But, if you are brave enough to read, here are some facts:

Why you would subscribe to a site for saving money and vote something cold because you don't shop there is beyond me. Pointless.

Voted hot - UHT skimmed milk is absolutely fine for tea and coffee. Buy it in stacks of 12 and keep it in the kitchen cupboard.

But explain to me how this is a bargain? Would you go out of your way to go to Lidl's after your shop at Tesco or whatever to save 13p on UHT milk?! If you shop at Lidl then fair enough but then you would most likely be buying it anyways and may 'lose' the 13p due to the fact that lidl's Cornflakes cost more.

It's just the same as those posts on 3p whippy delight stuff or 10p ketchup. Yes it is cheap but would you go to Morrisons because Asda has it for 2p more? It is not a bargain unless you are willing to get it on it's own from the shop IMHO.

Wasn't having a bad day or anything I just think a 13p saving is a ridiculous post.

Check out many other posts on here. Just noticed one for Walkers Sensations for 75p a 175g bag. People are not likely to jump into their cars and go to Tesco to save 75p on a bag of crisps....yet it is a hot deal according to people on here. People are not likely to buy just one bag in that case anyway... just as they would not jump in a car to buy one carton of milk.

As mentioned, if it hadn't been brought to my attention then I would have just nipped into Lidl for my fruit and veg. A 25% saving over Tesco, Asda etc. is worth knowing about IMHO on a product we buy regularly. Nobody is asking you to go out of your way to buy this. If it is cheaper elsewhere then please let us know.

Don't agree, you have obviously never heard the saying;

" look after the pennies, the pounds will look after themselves "

Voted HOT.:thumbsup:
#24
Hate lidl !!!!!!!! I prefer to shop at tesco! so voting cold plus hate this milk and for 13p not worth the hassle TBH!
#25
Reasonable Post, good saving, though never buy the stuff so heat added (have free Candia's from Sainsbury's in cupboard!). We go through 25 litres milk weekly

I read the OP from a diff. angle - disgust at Tesco's hidden prices increases. Not quite the post or forum to post this, but not only have the regular items increased dramatically, so are the essentials, Value Peanuts went from 21p to 30p this week, Calypso Drinks 48p over 4 months, Value Cheese, Weetabix, Eggs, Baked Beans, Frozen Peas and Corns, not to mention Fruit an dveg inceases - ALL GONE UP!! My shop increased 40%, hence I split shopping between Lidl, Aldi, Sainsburys and Tesco's.

I didn't go ot of my way, as most people I know I do part of my shopping @ Tesco, some @ Lidl and some in the local market, they are all in the same area. Also most of those who drink UHT milk don't buy just one litre, we buy boxes of at least 10 ltrs at one go, we buy 20 ltrs each week.. so, yes, going out of your way for just 1ltr=13p is a little silly unless you are on a very low budget but it isn't if you shop there anyway and if you buy lots of ltrs in one go.

UHT is absolutely minging!!! Chav milk. 41p is 41p too much!

I've not noticed many chavs on the continent where UHT is the norm. I would have thought UHT would have a worse taste than fresh milk (not sure of the definition of "minging") but I was surprised to find that I couldn't tell the difference in the semi-skimmed UHT and supermarket 'fresh' apart from it's cheaper and can be stored and is more convenient.
#31
Full fat/semi UHT is skank, skimmed is ok.
#32
it is also 41p in aldi, got some today, but I buy a few cases at a time.

Peanuts and calypsos are essentials?

I actually saved 14p, as on my 5 minute detour from Tesco, I found a penny on the floor!

Of course, I did get mugged on the way back from Lidl, but that's neither here nor there :thumbsup:
#35
Good find... cheers :thumbsup:
#36
Not really a fan of this stuff but a good saving for those that it may benefit.
My daughter only drinks Soya and goes through 10 litres of it a week - so if this were a 14p saving on Soya milk, it would certainly make the difference on my shopping bill.

I do not understand why people vote cold for not liking the product or the store - you are voting on whether this is a deal (compared to other places that stock the item) or not.

If you can't tell the difference then you must have a 'ketchup palate'. I find that UHT has a very distinctive taste and destroys tea and coffee.

I'm not sure what continent you refer to, but I have worked for years in most of our neighbouring countries and whilst I agree UHT is more popular, it's certainly not 'the norm'.

I haven't voted cold.

Ahh... it could be because I don't drink tea or coffee. I only have milk on muesli.


I lived in Spain and it was not that easy to get fresh milk. Post number 20 has a link that seems to back my claim up too.

"UHT milk has seen large success in much of Europe, where across the continent as a whole 7 out of 10 Europeans drink it regularly"

Not a mention of it being chav fodder. :)

I can't believe people are knocking a 13p per litre saving on UHT Milk.
Add 13p per litre of fuel and people would go on protests.
