So it's still overpriced but now it won't fit in your fridge door either!
Bought the bigger 1kg for £5.50 from tesco yesterday. Works out the same price.. kind of..
The Tesco Metro near my work (not even an Extra) has an incredible selection of oils. While this is great for people who want to buy a particular brand and a particular variety of oil, the end result for the consumer is that they pay more - since the supermarkets can't use the same economies of scale if they're buying 89 varieties of cooking oil VS 3.
Seem to remember reading that the large Tesco stores have 30,000 lines and Aldi has about 3,000. Amazing how few things I can't get there!
And of course it's not unlikely that the Aldi version used the same sort of butter, given their intent to deliver fewer (but better) products rather than swamping each range with a bewildering amount of options - see most of the big supermarkets' oil and even baked beans sections for how ridiculous things can get.
