Found 12th Oct 2009Made hot 12th Oct 2009
With Halloween just around the corner i thought this was a great price for Pumpkins. The large ones looked huge and any child would be happy with that on Halloween night.

There were also Medium sized ones at only £1, although their size looked more than big enough to have some fun with come the 31st October.

Enjoy & Happy Halloween! ;-)

Note: The pumpkins are not ready-carved. ;-)

Lidl seem to have really lost the plot. I went in there for the first time in years the other week and was amazed at how expensive they are now. Years ago their prices were, for some items, amazing, and for some items the quality beat mainstream supermarkets hands down, not to mention the excellent "specials" they used to do.

Now the specials are overpriced tat and the prices for general groceries are often the same or more than Tesco. I will only be going back to brave the dingy, dirty, understocked and dodgy character filled store to return the faulty DIY special that I bought.

Not sure bout the deal, but like the pic. Heat added

i saw that but went to sainburys and got a medium one for £1.50 (they said small but its quite big!!)

I drove up to Chippenham on Saturday and on the way I passed a farm house with around 4 very large tractor trailers outside loaded with huge pumpkins all £1 each. Looked better than ones i'd seen in the supermarket too.
Not available to everyone though ;-)

Keep them in a cool dry ventilated place and they will keep for months.

Preddy good. Was in Morrisons today though - they were not that good. And when I mean not good, I mean a lot of them looked disabled.

Lidl near me was £2.99 at the w/e.. forgot to check today though...

£2 for large pumkins in Tesco's too. Not sure about the smaller ones as I didn't look:thumbsup:

What's done with the pumpkin after you're done with it? Compost it? Does anyone cook it?

We usually leave it in the garden till it goes soggy then chuck it in the compost bin.

As to eating them, usually on Halloween we make a stew, in a cauldron, with beans, chicken, pork, toadstools, eye of newt, toe of frog, chilli, numerous mystical herbs and spices and a little pumpkin flesh from the lantern carving. Always goes down well but to be honest these variety pumpkins have been bred for the Halloween lantern carving market not for eating, so the flavour is pants. I wish the supermarkets would sell varieties which tasted nice as well.

Cool, I'll have a look next time I go in, though I doubt they will be in our local smaller store.
