I like it.

Great buy. i like this hovis bread, as a mixture of white and brown bread. farmfood sell all hovis bread 2 for £1.50. This is a better buy!

Lidl do there own brand or summit thats thick sliced and 47p for full loaf, ill stick with that, way cheaper than the branded stuff and just as good

Farmfoods do a similar deal, but with different types where it's 2 for £1.50, though it is a smaller supermarket and may not be available every where

which make was the one found with a baked mouse inside????lol

this is the best deal since sliced bread

Use your loaf — this saves your dough.

Morrisons own brand (value) is the best I have found at 47 p

Nice find.;)

in today's daily express there's a coupon for a free warburton's tasty white loaf - pick up from mccolls

plus - free golden linseed from holland and barratt.

Aldi has been doing this for about 2 months

i picked up a half-price full-size `tiger` loaf at aldi the other day. - 49p down from 99p if i remember correctly - don't know if that offer's still on.

Best of Both is still 99p in my local Aldi

Just paid 99p in my local Aldi too. store specific?

I got it for 66p in the Haddington Aldi. I've found it in several Lidls at this price in Edinburgh area.

Best white bread you can buy is Roberts (may be local) ALDI £1 a loaf.

Best of both is ok, remember mighty white? that was similar.

What happened to Mighty White?

Cold because the description is misleading by calling it bread.

It doesn't taste as good as either type of bread.

Don't buy it then...

Still 99P in my local Lidl Vote Cold Here

Aldi closed down locally and the Lidl's we have don't seem to get these offers like a recent offer for 350g of cheese for £2 that was £2.49 for 250g in ours. However the standard white thick sliced loaf is ok although occasionally they seem a bit stale despite the date saying otherwise. Also buy Tesco Value loaf which is ok, seems a bit fresher but don't think I've tried the Morrison's basic loaf so will try that if its better than Tesco Value. Have to say for bread Farmfoods seems to often have the best offers but don't go there very often. Braces is my favourite branded bread.

Cheaper at Tesco only 31p. Reduced prices section. Reduced from £1.25 to 31p. Best before 12 March.

Well, if people will pay, then people will buy. I know Im getting ripped off at Asda over here, but it's a further 15 minutes in to farmfoods(takes around 20 minutes to get to Asda),and because I'm a) lazy and b) could use the time lost at the supermarket more productively, I'll get a delivery instead

Back where I was at home, farmfoods was only a ten minute walk. Nothing much, and we always get our milk and bread from there. Their milk is more expensive than Asda but tastes much better (Wiseman compared to Arla)

Hardly a disgrace surely, just normal price differences you see in different shops. When I went in to Lidl's a few days ago many of the products were more expensive than superior products in Tesco. A medium sliced loaf was 62 or 66p but was 47p in Tesco, frozen oven chips were 66p for a kg bag but far nicer ones were 82p for 1.5kg in Tesco. If you know what your doing Tesco is a far cheaper place to shop you just keep to the value range, offers, reductions and you benefit from clubcard points, use of vouchers etc.

I also get to use my cashback credit card in Tesco which I can't do in Aldi or Lidls. Not only that but both Lidl's and Aldi are depressing ugly stores but you can see why Aldi have 2 incredibly rich billionaires in Forbe's top 100 wealthiest people they cut everything down to the bone with bare minimum quality of food. I can't remember which store it is either Aldi or Lidls (I think Lidls) which resells/repackages old vegetables which hadn't been sold by Tesco or were rejected for poor quality.

My recent Tesco shop was an amazing bargain with all the stuff I got for just over £20, a recent shop in Lidl's was really a waste of time I spent little over £5 and hardly anything for that money, some of the offers I was expecting to see there weren't there. Waste of time and petrol really. I've also accumulated about £20 worth of points in Tesco over the last few months which could be £80 in deals. If you know what your doing Tesco is fantastic value. Not that I recommend you stick to any one supermarket but instead keep changing between them. All of them Morrisons, Sainsburys, Asda, Lidl, Aldi (if you have one) and Tesco have better deals than other supermarkets for certain products so it makes sense not to be loyal. For me though Tesco is a real treat in Yeovil, its just about the nicest Tesco store I've ever been in, very large with a massive range of products with many great prices.

Obviously loads of expensive things too which of course you avoid if your on a budget. The other brilliant thing Tesco have done is build their yeovil supermarket at the edge of the normal high street area so you can park up for free and then wander in to the main shopping area to browse and still get back in time to do your Tesco shop as you get 2 1/2hrs. Its really helped to keep the high street alive in Yeovil and I give them great credit for doing that. There is a huge line of pedestrian traffic going back and forth between the high street and the Tesco store. High parking costs are a massive deterent to high street shopping normally.

Totally disagree with you. You may get the odd good deal in Tesco but generally Aldi and Lidl are cheaper and have BETTER QUALITY products. And your accusation about Lidl or Aldi vegetables is totally unfounded.

Let me give you this example. Aldi and Lidl have Olive Spread for £1.09 (500ml). Tesco and other supermarkets sell there's for £1.40-£1.45, occasionally reducing it to £1. If Aldi and Lidl can consistantly charge £1.09, how are the other supermarkets not ripping us off?

You get more than the odd good deal in Tesco.My main shop is there
I do a bit of shopping in Lidl & Aldi.Both stores have their good and bad points.
The bad about Lidl and Aldi is they don't accept credit cards or take any vouchers.
Best is to go to all 3 to get all the bargains if they are close enough.

The idea that Aldi and Lidls have better quality products is laughable without any basis in fact and Tesco older vegetables products are or were repackaged and sold in either Lidl or Aldi. Aldi operate on a huge margin that Tesco and other supermarkets can only dream of. Some of that is due to basic shopfittings, low staff levels and not accepting credit cards etc but also a lot of it is the cost of the food often imported more cheaply from low cost suppliers in Europe. I myself buy many food products in Lidl after experimentation I have found products I like but I have found more products in Lidl and Aldi that are not acceptable to me in quality and that is in a store with a limited selection of products compared to other supermarkets. The idea they are higher quality is pure fiction with no basis in reality. That certainly isn't to say all their food is bad though. Some of their tinned and frozen processed food is truly abysmal but I'm a fan of their clone twix bars, a yoghurt that comes in a small bucket and their heavenly butter substitute is no worse than similar products.

What actually is better quality? I don't think I've ever come across a single product I could describe as better quality there. Equal quality seems to be the max they can achieve with most below. I'm really curious about this can you tell me what products you consider higher quality and I will try them if its my sort of food. I geniunely have never come across such products in these stores. Note only have a Lidl store nearby. Only occasionally get to go into Aldi since the Yeovil store closed.

Your point about the Olive spread is it can be purchased cheaper at Tesco for £1 occasionally saving 9p. Well stock up a few then and stick them the freezer. Thats 9p saved for each.

Tesco offer an extensive range of goods offering both high quality, medium quality and value products in lots of different ranges. For me most of the Aldi/Lidl products equal theh value range or below, thats what my taste buds have told me. Many of Tesco's value range taste far nicer or equal to those offered in Aldi or Lidls like baked beans, oven chips, toffees, biscuits, bread etc.

I find the normal Tesco prices are expensive. Yes they have offers but the offers make their original prices look laughable. Lidl and Aldi do not have the ridiculous prices you get in shops like Tesco.

I am lucky and I can shop in most of the supermarekets each week and get the best deals in each of them, most people cannot do that and I would hate to be stuck with just Tesco. And dont get me started on Tesco Express...

I also find tesco quite expensive, prefer Asda generally. Lidl and Aldi offer products at fairer prices.

I suppose its a matter of how you shop. I sincerely believe Tesco is cheaper than Aldi or Lidls if you know what your doing and make heavy use of the value range, offers and reductions etc. I also find the quality superior but that doesn't mean you can just go into Tesco and just choose what you like and come out. Aldi and Lidls have a very limited range of goods but with Tesco's a lot of stuff is priced quite high which you need to avoid. As previously stated though the reason I go into Lidls, Asda, Morrisons etc is to get a selection of their best deals. Loyalty to any one shop is the real mistake when it comes to value for money. I do believe Tesco's value range is the best range of value products when it comes to quality. They still have their dodgy products but not so many I think as Asda's Smartprice or Sainsbury's Basics. Not really sure how the Morrisons value range sits with the others currently as I haven't really bought much of their value range.

Also I'm ashamed to say as a single man with a 9-5 job I buy a lot of processed food and rarely properly cook for myself. If your buying raw ingrediants to cook rather than buying processed foods like myself you may have a different perspective.

Agree ASDA are far cheaper, just do a shop on mysupermarket and look at the price difference. Although most big stores are all coming into line lately.

£1.25 in mine.

Voted cold as is only a store specific deal.
