Peach slices 35p in Lidl

Found 14th Aug 2015
One of the key questions on the test to predict your probable lifespan is "Did you eat fruit yesterday?". This is my solution. Tip a tin of these into a glass bowl and keep them in the fridge, with a spoon. It's cheap, it's easy, it's hard to forget and always tempting. Don't die early just because you forgot your fruit on the wrong day. Cheaper than the Tesco equivalent by 5 pence. You could pay more for a single fresh (but never ripe) peach with icky fuzz on it. Not a special price so ALWAYS AVAILABLE! You can't buy a longer life any cheaper.

I took the photo myself, of a tin I obtained at Lidl. It has a Lidl UK GmbH address in the fine print on the back. Lidl have another own brand called Harvin, which is more expensive. Incidentally, these peaches come from Spain. The Tesco ones I had came from Greece.

I always have these in- they're a great store- cupboard item. I use them as a base for fruit salads, adding the saddest items from the fruit bowl- or make a fruit smoothie:)

Can't find it now. All such things lay great emphasis on fruit and vegetables, but this particular test only asked about yesterday. I expect that was because if people are asked a fuzzy question about whether they eat plenty of fruit and veg or eat a balanced diet in general they always say yes.

No. If they did, it would probably be pear or apple juice.

My lidl usually one sells enormous tins of tinned pears, fruit cocktail, pineapple, etc.

The fruit might be good but its the syrup in the cheaper own brands rather than the fruit juice in the more expensive ones thats not to good,all sugars but good and bad ones?

cant get cheap peach slices in juice anymore,theyre all syrup

Cheap sugar prices means that it is cheaper to make syrup than to provide juice. The juice is sent to the lizard people who rule the planet from beneath the volcanoes of NZ.

According to recent research, the sucrose in the syrup may be better for you than the fructose in the fruit.

Sorry, LongPockets, but tinned fruit isn't going to prolong your life. A lot of the phytochemicals and antioxidants that make fruit healthy break down and oxidise over the extended period of time between harvest and you tipping these into a bowl in your fridge. They also add a bunch of free sugar and remove a lot of the fibrous, good parts of the fruit.

Tongue in cheek. Actually, we all live until the end of time. You could have an argument about when that is.
