I dont think many of us will be sad to read the news that Tesco have had a 11% fall in profits and stores like Lidl continue to experience incredible growth, and here are the weekend deals.

8 Pork Sausages 49p
Cherry Plum Tomatoes 50p (250g)
Utterly Butterly 90p (500g)
Mini Chedders 12 pack £1.49

Umm, would this be the same tesco's that employs tens of thousands and contributes to our economy.
I am a fan of the free market just like both of our political parties, but I never rejoice in falling profits.
What I hope is they look at how they do things and adjust.

Contributes by employing job seekers for free. sent thousands of small businesses into bankruptcy. Forces suppliers to cut costs so drastically that puts them on the edge. Does offers that are not really offers but they have a big yellow label which means it must be good value. Makes insane profits but still pays min wage to its 10's of thousands of employees

I use Lidl and Aldi for one reason only quality .
The majority of their products are better than Sainsburys and others .
Cost does not come into it at all even though it is cheaper in most cases .
As i use most supermarkets within the space of a month i have no real ties and don't need the clubcard points .
With Tesco in particular i find i need to read the offer twice to be sure . Half price £1 yes that's the one every supermarket sells for £1 and independent shops sell for £1.29 .
However they all have their uses and some better products than others .

But the real mugs are those that decry Aldi/Lidl as poor quality .

i get it, u can only afford to shop in lidls.
each to there own, u - crap sausages and rotten fruit at lidls
me - steaks and proper food at WAITROSE
its you're problem not mine

You have more significant problems that your choice of grocer - foremost amongst them the fact that your mother seems to have drunk, smoked, and belly-flopped her way through pregnancy. If you want to spend your benefit money in Waitrose, so be it - but for all that is holy, please stop mashing away at the keyboard. Your witless, nonsensical, bleating inanity offends my eyes.

And squirrels away the tax it owes in elaborate avoidance schemes. Would that be the same Tesco? Indeed it would!

But until the other day it was run by a devout Catholic. So surely it would "do no evil".

Tesco deserves it, they are an ugly company if there ever was one. Read the BBC Watchdog, time and time again the make a "mistake" that hurts customers, and every time they promise it will not happen again.

They should really call it 1 hour offer not weekend offer. My brother has been into Lidl 15 minutes after opening and never found the meat deals. They should really limit to 1 or 2 per customer.

Is there an echo in here! ;-)

Personally not overly keen on these sausages but, they are better than Richmond in ingredients and taste. That's for sure.

The cherry plum tomatoes are consistently good and I will be buying a stack of them!

As an aside; Vos commentaires sont vous faire paraître un peu niais Monsieur Watkins

Lidl quality is great. Their ham is superb, the mid range sausages are better than any other supermarkets, the chorizo is superb, W5 dishwasher tablets are as good as finish IMO, their washing powder is good, their wine is also really nice...I could go on and on. All this and my shop in their is best part of 30-40% cheaper than Sainsburys!

No brainer for me.
sandrabear#15
These sausages not all that, not a good flavour for me- sometimes they do cumberland ones for 74p which are nice. Will buy frozen sausages or look on sainsburys counter instead

No, they don't employ tens of thousands of employees. Actually they hardly directly employ any. Virtually all of their "employees" are outsourced.
When, and if, your suspension ends, maybe you could explain why their profits are down 11%, whilst other supermarket chains are reporting increased revenue and profits?

I feel I'm stating the obvious here, but nigelwatkins should work in Tesco, as he seems to fit the seemingly mandatory employee criteria of being a MONUMENTAL IDIOT.

I go to lidl for the Cimarosa Chenin Blanc (which I believe has won awards in various tests) and can honestly say that it is one of the better wines, and certainly one which you would pay at least double for in major supermarkets. I also shop in both Lidl and Aldi for the fruit, veg and flowers (which one depends on what deals they have each week) as I believe they last longer than Tesco's... Tesco is good for certain things, but the 'budget' supermarkets are far superior on other items. By the way, Aldi washing up liquid is proven to be better than Fairy, doesn't dry your hands out like Fairy does and is half the price!

Oh and by the way Mr. Nigel Watkins.. I can afford to shop in Waitrose but choose not to, as believe it or not, a high price does not necessarily make something a high quality item and in fact, some food manufacturers actually make products for supermarkets such as Lidl higher quality than for leading supermarkets. Why? It all comes down to price and Tesco are notorious for wanting (and using bully boy tactics to get) to pay the cheapest price possible and so manufacturers have to compromise on the quality of the ingredients just to stay afloat. How do I know? I know plenty of people from shop floor workers to directors of food manufacturing plants.

Back on topic. Thanks OP for posting the deal. I'll be off to stock up on the tomatoes over the weekend (and if a cheeky bottle of wine falls into my trolley then so be it) :)

so mini cheddars are normally £3 for a pack of 12 then are they?? total boll*cks

iceland sell them at this price every day of the year, and down to £1 a pack of 12 every few weeks

real clever people shop smart, from several different supermarkets and save money, leaving it free to spend on other things, things they do actually want etc

There is only one 'right' answer as to which is the best of the supermarkets, and that answer is "I have no idea, I send the missus".
