Nice deal Kneale



Thanks Chanchi, I'm finding myself in Aldi more than Tesco over the last few weeks.

I deep fry them

why is it that Tesco hardly ever compete with Aldi and Lidl on this kind of offer and the fruit from Aldi is always decent quality..... Spreadable butter is also an absolute rip off with all the big supermarkets why is it when the farmers are almost giving milk away to the supermarkets.They all know they have a captive audience... Well done Aldi for this

I've got to admit, the stuff aldi sells is good quality. You have there own brands and stock is much cheaper.

That sounds so wrong! Poor little blueberries battered & fried...

Just grow your own, i do. I'd be amazed if there british grown. Think of the planet and buy local.

Cheaper than the £2 for 250g of frozen ones I usually get from Asda! Thanks OP!

Supermarkets have different offers on just as Aldi do to get customers through the door. When Morrisons had 375g for £1.50 not long since Aldi didn't compete with them. Also I got flora spreadable butter for £1.24 at tesco this week and it tastes better and is cheaper than the Aldi stuff.

"Large" according to who?

got to say recently not been over impressed with the fruit from aldi. especially the soft fruit

Because aldi don't tend to chill their fruit and veg nor are there generally dates on any of it. That means they don't pay for chillers and they can sell fruit and veg that's past its date but nobody ever knows.

It's foreign products imported in on the cheap. Other supermarkets have local and UK produce.

They don't compete because only the desperate folk buy it from Aldi.

Um just a correction for any of you aldi haters...i currently work as a deputy manager of a store and have to say:

We have backup chillers, we keep chilled backstock in them are meant to keep produce also but with the massive influx in customers growth, stores were simply never designed to cope. So chilled foods is the first option to go in obviously they are working to fix this

Dates are visable on all aldi fruit and veg just not as you'd expect...they take form as a week and day code - this week, its week 27 of the year...and (if monday was 01 - tuesday 02 etc...)

If number on a product is 2701 the date for that is today the staff SHOULD remove it at close... example for week
2702 is dated for tuesday
2703 wednesday
2704 thursday
2705 friday
2706 saturday
2707 sunday...
...2801 monday
Etc etc

its not foriegn products imported on cheap a lot of products are the same as asda branded, tesco branded waitrose branded ect... ect... also even branded products...mcvities, crawfords,jeyes,florette,a lot of branded wines...just a handful of what ive seen depot notes from manufacturers...they source them in bulk orders...hence buy more save more, its how they will save money...

that as well as lesser staff than any other supermarket...who are multi-trained and highly skilled in every aspect of the store...they will work the tills with brush up they're bum, whilst date checking the milk and working a chilled pallet... (different when you go to asda and see about 10 wandering around looking lost or that lady sat on the till in tesco with no customers at her belt)

a clear cut till procedure trolley to belt - scanned to trolley - packing bench...saves money for company...(having to employ more staff)
saves money on your weekly shop...Simples!
( we know we have queues still but as i said this is another problem they are facing, with stores simply not designed for the influx in customers)


be aware that the smaller packs of Aldi blueberries are actually cheaper when comparing the 'per kilogram' rate than the larger packs - at least that's the case in my local store - and also I presume why the small packs seem to sell out first...

89p for 125g works out more expensive than £1.69 for 300g (_;)

£1 for 200g in Lidl at the moment for anyone that doesn't have an Aldi nearby.

The ones I got from Lidl a few days ago were not so good, many squishy ones that had started fermenting.

at this price i should have a tray of blueberries a day. keeps the doc away!

also keeps the wrinkles away lol
