Reduced fat houmous 200g - 47p @ Aldi - didn't buy the full-fat version, so unsure if that was 47p too.

I totally agree
Went to my local Aldi & it wasn't reduced.

reduced fat = added sugar

which is way worse then fat

My local Aldi keeps replacing their products with "low fat" versions. They no longer sell a single pot of yoghurt that hasn't been abused by added sugar or worse, sweeteners. I've given up shopping there as a result.

I tried so hard looking for the added sugar in this, who the hell would put SUGAR in HOUMOUS?!?!

But, just for you, here are the ingredients:

Cooked Chickpeas, Water, Sesame seed paste, Rapeseed Oil, Lemon Juice, Garlic Puree, Salt, Potassium Sorbate

Not every low fat product has added sugar, this obviously just either has less oil or tahini in, or more chickpeas!

Hey, it sometimes not in the ingredient list but in the 'carb,sugar, fat protein' breakdown.
I actually picked up both the low fat and normal aldi humous and checked it last time I was in store. Saw that Low fat has higher sugar.

Do you have someone who looks after you? can we speak to them please?

A new Aldi opened near to me last month. I used it for the first time yesterday, had never shopped in Aldi before.

I have to say for a big shop it didn't actually have much choice.

Fresh veg was cheap and good quality. Cat food was very cheap. A few items like rice were decent prices but nothing like the big deal that is made in the media.

The fact it doesn't stock everything you need for a family shop makes me question if it's worth saving a few pennies on some items but waste a lot of time having to shop in 2 places.

And it was a bleeding nightmare getting round as it was full of people.

I think Asda is probably a better bet.

I went in once too. The shelves were tall, aisles were narrow and it was busy.

What didn't they sell that you wanted?

I go in aldi or lidl once in a while, im still yet to see these great bargains and savings. Everytime I go in im disappointed. I compare everything to what I normally buy in tesco and just dont see the savings or able to do a complete shop. I mostly buy tesco own brand and the occasional brand name thats on offer.

It's all hyped up in the media. The Aldi stores are probably ok for people on a tight budget and mainly open in the poorer areas.
