Very cheap - but not entirely fair comparison. For instance Tesco Raspberries 225G - rather than 125g in the offer. Still works out cheaper at Morrisons of course.

Nice, but my local market often does 2 punnets for a pound when I go on a Saturday.

Not an Apple, cold

Seems to be a trend in Morrisons. Reduce the packet size to make things look cheaper. God I hate that company Can't wait for them to go bust.

The prices I quoted were for the same size pack according to mySupermarket but I guess they could be wrong...

Hilarious clip...

I has the Scottish ones in Asda and they are actually sweet now. Before they were sour as hell. The M&S ones were £2 a punnet for a while and were really sweet but they have gone back up to £3.50 now.

it's called a loss leader. make a loss on one product to get you through the door then hike up the price of other shopping basket items.

Was in Asda yesterday and noticed alot of fruit prices dropped, some where half of what they were a couple weeks ago. I think it is just because they are in season and in abundance.

no it's because they're being battered by the discounters! but good if you eat a lot of fruit. i was just pointing out that other staples have probably increased in price to compensate.

What staples are cheaper at Lidl and Aldi aside from some weekly specials? I seldom find anything that is much cheaper. And what staples have increased in price at the big supermarkets?

"What staples are cheaper at Lidl and Aldi aside from some weekly specials?"

practically everything, although the quality isn't always as good.

"And what staples have increased in price at the big supermarkets?"

again, practically everything that ISN'T on offer.

actually more competition is a good thing for the consumer, but i know what you mean. it's not just morrisons that do it though, they all do. smaller sized items for same price or more. nature valley, twinings, nescafe, mars, all guilty of the same thing. i hate big corporations, but i cant afford to shop exclusively at independent shops unforch.

Any examples? For example i was buying cereal and found Asda to be cheaper than Lidl.

Oaties biscuits - just like Hob Nobs. i mean like *exactly the same* - 50p a pack at lidl. The cheapest you can get the equivalent mcvities ones at the larger supermarkets is £2 for 2 or £1.50 at Iceland.

Cereal bars - 8 in a pack at Lidl for 99p, 6 in an equivalent pack at the big ones for same price or more.

Sparkling Water - 29p for a 1.5 litre at Lidl - and it is actually not just carbonated water, it tastes nice too. Same for plain filtered water with added bubbled, does not taste nice, at asda et al. if you want the nice tasting stuff, it's normally £1.29 upwards.

i could go on.

in terms of stuff they constantly raise the price on - cold meats - 8 slices for £3.50 of decent quality ham, and that's when you buy 2 x 4 packs. Sliced cheese, £2 a pack. Slices keep getting smaller and less, esp at Tesco. Mars bars, used to be 4 x £1. now it's 7 x £2.

again, i could go on.

Asda own brand oaties are 40p a pack.
Lidl cereal bars are 12.3p each. Asda does some for that price too.
Carbonated water in asda is 17p.

Basically smart price range at Asda either has Lidl beat or the difference tends to be about the same. Sure, some of the stuff i personally dislike the quality but some like the cereal i find excellent.

yeah, i should have guessed you'd quote smart price range back at me. each to their own, but i wouldn't touch most smart price items with a barge pole, and i specifically said, not talking about the bargain basement range water - which is just filtered water plus bubbles. lidl's sparkling water tastes closer to a perrier etc. economy biscuits at the big 4 are horrid in my experience, lidl's ones taste more like brand name ones. but again, each to their own.

from above:

I regularly shop at Morrisons and have noticed most items have reduced across the store and our shopping bill is a lot lower recently. Ditched Aldi and Lidl as the quality of lot of their produce is not good and the savings for shopping at a budget store were not as good as you would think.

People nowdays would rather spend money on technology etc than buy better food which is a shame.

morrisons have been forced to slash prices because they are losing money hand over fist, so they are trying to attempt to get back customers. last time i shopped there, half the pre-packed fruit and veg i took home was mouldy. i didn't realise until i got it home and took out the packet. but they sent me a £10 voucher when i complained. haven't been back since though.

i agree, you need to pick and choose at aldi/lidl. some of their stuff is OK, some is rank. you get the feel of what is and isn't good after a few shops there.

Suprised to hear that as i've never had any bad fresh produce from Morrisons, it's fresher than all the other places i've been in the past. I have had mouldy produce from Aldi however didn't return it i just stopped going.

I bought the Asda raspberries this week, huge fruits but taste of nothing! At least the Morrisons ones actually taste of raspberries (_;)
