Fruit Bowl yogurt fruit flakes - raspberry - 8x25g - 99p @ Aldi

13
Found 25th Jul 2013
Reduced from £1.99, in the special buys section. They cost £3.25 in Tesco and £2 for the 5x25g packs in Asda - so this is a great price.
Long best before date - June 2014. More flavours might be available in other stores, you might even be lucky enough to find the "25% extra free" packs that Aldi often stock!

"Made with real fruit. Contains real yogurt. Ideal for lunchboxes, cereal toppings & home baking. Natural colours and flavours. Gluten free. Suitable for vegetarians."

you only get 5 in those packs though. Classic poundland trick

How is it a Poundland "trick"? They don't bag up the items. They purchase them from the supplier that way

They sell items like this, containing less then the average packet size, or weighing less etc, and sell them at a pound, which makes it seem like it's a great buy, when in actual fact it's not really. Such is the case in your example. You can buy 5 for a pound here, or 8 for a pound Aldi. No brainer. Why not buy the 8 pack from the supplier?! I take it you don't watch watchdog? They were all over this.

Even still, OP said Asda charge £2 for the 5 pack, so £1 for the 5 pack at Poundland is good o.O. Maybe they buy from the same people as Asda do.

Anyway, hot, my ratties love these :D. Well, they eat the yogurt coating and spit the fruit out anyway. Will have to nip in to Aldi as they've not had them for a while as, £2 at Asda for 5 is too much :p.

Maybe they buy from the same people as Asda do. but still not as good a deal as the op's post, so this is irrelevant really. 8 for a pound is obviously better than 5 for a pound or indeed, 5 for £2. I don't really understand why these have been use as a comparison. There's no logicAnyway, hot, my ratties love these :D. Well, they eat the yogurt coating and spit the fruit out anyway.

I was just annoyed at people complaining at poundland when they're better value than Asda. Never said it was a better deal than this either. In fact I said it was hot (as opposed to £land just being good) and I was going to nip in to an Aldi to get some. I now know however that if Aldi don't have any or I can't get to one, Poundland is a good back up instead of paying Asda prices so for me, win win either way. Well for my 28 rats, its a win win situation as even 5 bags is enough to go around if I cant get this deal at my local Aldi.

They were used as a comparison because the OP said the standard Asda price, someone else said this was standard price at poundland and were corrected and told it was the 5 pack. Which started a whole whinge about £1land ripping people off by choosing to buy the 5 pack....which as discussed, Asda already buy and charge twice as much for.

It seems that Fruit Bowl would rather that you didn't know that their product is sold in places like Aldi and Poundland. They certainly don't point you in their direction!
