This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

3 for £1 Lidl Chocolate Hazelnut Croissants.
49p each normally.

These croissants are normally huge, but when I bought them on offer today, they're much smaller (maybe even up to 1/3 smaller. Ha!). A bit cheeky imo.

Does anyone else agree?!

Lidl bakery quality control is non existent. As good as it tastes, they need to invest in how they display their products. Prices have risen sharply in their bakery over the last year and are starting to become dearer than competitors.
Are these the ones that are basically out in the open for all and sundry to cough maul and pick over

I always thought the filling in these was a bit odd. The size of their pastries seem to vary quite a lot anyway, so maybe it was just an unlucky batch.

Agree! prices up, sizing and quality inconsistent. Also, some baked items are over or undercooked!

Agreed, they're squashed into the display trays and 99% of the croissants in the middle are not cooked so you just have raw dough.

On a serious note Lidl need to up their game, think they have got a bit complacent. Their used to be a clear price difference between them and the Big 4 as well as decent weekly offers
Wish their cookies go back to 3 for £1

It depends who is baking. If person bakes properly and put right amount of croissant on tray that they will be baked at right size. If someone wants to skip procedures and fill trays with more coissant that they don't grow to the right shape. It is individual store issue and unfortunately it shouldn't happened but there is still some staff with the attitude that they know better.

as I wrote before. Individual store issues. Too many croissants on the trays. You should report it to store managers as they may not be aware of this issue.

This is the worst part... no covers or nothing everything is in dirty baskets and kids pick everything up put them back drop them on the floor put them back... weird people pick them up and sniff them then put them back :/ such tasty stuff too but yak please cover the stuff up!!!!

Yep, that’s ‘em. Gotta do that 8am run to avoid the pokers, sniffers but not buying mob. Also use the flimsy fruit bags wrapped round hands to pick stuff thus avoiding the pick and roll round fingers nose diggers who handle the utensils. Don’t get me started on the loose nuts that were in baskets, then moved to hygienic containers and now are back in the filthy baskets. Life . Heat btw. Raisin ones for me.

what hygienic containers were they in? the basket is something a plastic box gets put inside so affects nothing

Lidl bakery there's no-one there most of the time, a beep goes off when something is cooked and someone has to go over from the till when they've got a moment, no wonder stuff gets overcooked.

Yeah but that's also the case for the fresh baked stuff in Sainsbury's, Asda and Tesco. Only difference with Lidl is there shelving goes further down so kids can reach, but kids aren't the only ones picking up the food, adults are sometimes more disgusting.

I think your being soft. Kids can't even play in soil these days. Allergies have gone up too. Bit of bacteria didn't do No one any harm. And if it did it would help improve immune systems.
Just ina. Different note, how many people wash their hands after they've visited the loo? Just think every door handle you touch... Have a think. Just saying
Don't hear this kind of language in Europe where the low risk food is on display in the open. Maybe we ought to teach people how to handle.

For the loose nuts? I’ve seen flies in there, when the lid is open, hands being used when the utensil wasn’t around, I’m talking about cashews being swished around with bare hands, wrists buried, presumably to get access to the lower level cashews. It was beyond disgraceful. Eventually they switched to something similar to the image but a very large version which was so much better, but it kept breaking so they switched back to the baskets. My experience is one of general disgust, I don’t even bother anymore. I appreciate others may have a different experience.

have never seen those type dispensers - can imagine it all over the floor just
flies inside the nuts should just be random flies - cant see them being attracted to salty nuts?
but yeah ofc - all those open type containers are at risk

Lol... Most Lidl are in areas where there is social deprivation. I agree that I wouldn't want my food contaminated either but it then makes sense not to purchase this type of open food from their store. Flies and contamination will not stop

Not at my Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury's. They sell pre-baked stuff in the plastic boxes and have a fresh section which is just pastries in baskets, same as Lidl, same as every store I've been to, so not sure what you mean.
