Bought an enormous watermelon in Lidl yesterday for 1.49. The quality was great as the fruit was extremely tasty!

I have been waiting for cheap watermelons for a while now. bore out a hole in the top, tip a bottle of vodka inside (tight fit is the best) and let it sit overnight, simple watermelon vodka. Cut into pieces and server at a party. Search youtube if you need a video.

Ever seen that Peep Show episode...?

jamie oliver did this in his first ever series will try it one day

I would not say "huge" - just above the average size sold in this country :-)

OK, half a bottle of vodka. Love this idea! : )

Obviously posted by a complete amateur. Where's the picture of the lady holding the two big melons? This site is going down hill.

Learn from your mistake poster. Melon posts are not about price, they are an opportunity to knowingly put the phrase 'Huge Melons' (not melon singular...doh!!) in your title and rightly get away with it. Someone please help the poor guy out!

Apologies! oO

The watermelons are actually quite huge. Much bigger than the ASDA/Tesco ones. My local Lidl ( Maidstone) had lots and every customer had one in his trolley.

always better to buy two when they are on offer as you cant beat two great big juicy melons

Can someone gives the melons a squeeze and confirm if they are firm? I don't want to waste time on cheap melons if they are old and past their best. But also don't be squeezing all of them, no-one wants melons that every Joe Bloggs has hand their hands all over.

Where ? link ?
I could not find it. Searched all the LIDL deals and found nothing mentioning watermelons at 1.49.
Sorry if this is a duplicate.

up to this point i was worried where it was going

I disagree with the person who said they were of outstanding quality. This girl in my local got a defect....

Out of interest, what are HUKD's rules on pictures these days? Because I think i've found a picture which better illustrates how nice these melons are... :P

Expired, now £1.99.

Of course you can. If it's already posted then why should it be voted hot for info already known?

Edit: Saying that, I cannot find it already posted. I have checked comments within threads about fruit and veg too and no mention of water melons for £1.49.

It would appear that pretty much anything still goes with regards to ladies holding melons as illustrated amply above.
