    Does anyone do their weekly/monthly shopping from Iceland? I know that there are a few things that are recommended in the magazines as being free on red and green, but do any of you get your food shopping from there?

    I usually go to Tesco, but when I got my Xmas party food in Iceland, I thought how much good value the food was but before I switch to Iceland, I just wanted your opinions. Sorry waffling on now!!

    Hi
    Have been to Iceland twice in the last week (mostly for non SW buffet food):p - had forgotten how good it was - certainly going to go more in 2009 for SW food - really good value.
    I am thinking of switching to Tesco as their vegetarian range is excellent although Asda is on my door step.
    A new year thought - to have more shopping delivered then I should spend less.:D

    I dont think its easy to do a whole shop in Iceland but its good and cheap for the standby's like frozen Veg n fish i tend to do a whammo blitz in there and fill the freezer with the above and then hit Farmfoods for frozen fruit (as its cheaper there) but I tend to do the actual proper weekly shop in Tesco's n Asda as they have more selection and the fresh fruit n veg is a lot better quality and they have a greater range of stuff to pick from.

    When I shop at Asda I buy their meat free range; mince, beef chunks and lincolnshire sausage.
    Prefer the above to the quorn mince and sausage.
    When I shop at Tesco I buy; Mince, bacon, sausage which IMO is the nicer range.
    Although it is a couple of syns as opposed to quorn mince and sausage.

    I popped into Lidls and they had no fresh meat at all. So I went to Tesco again. I am just getting fed up of spending over £100 every week, so I am thinking of alternatives. Now we have got rid of all the party food, there is loads of room in the freezer so I think I will go to Iceland on Monday.

    The main things I buy are meat (usually spend about £15 on meat), pasta and "kid" food. If that makes sense. That's why I can't understand why my food bills are so high.

    I haven't been to iceland in ages, will need to go and stock up my freezer. I love morrisons, i'm not very keen on tesco here, it is great for non food items but i find that they have very little stock now they have discontinued a lot of their stuff.
