    Now I know Lidl is like the satan of supermarkets but I happend to have a sneak in there yesterday, and they have their own light brand called Linessa. I grabbed some of the low fat soft cheese and it works out at 1pt for half a tub! I could smother the whole damn thing on a jacket and it would only be 2pts worth of cheese! MY MY MY!!! I got some of the linessa crisps too. They work out at 2, not as low as some crisps we can find but they are really tatsty!

    Oooo theres a Lidl right by my train station (I too pop in when no-ones looking if I need to grab something on the way home from work!) ;-)
    I'll have to sneak in there again and grab some soft cheese. I've been having feta on my salad thinking it was ok points wise - its about 4 points!!! Having low fat cheese would REALLY help save points for a wine and Lidl crisps in the evening! Hehe. xx

    Hi peeps and sorry for sticking my nose in but would you tell me why Lidl is the satan of all supermarkets? I love Lidl because of what they have and the prices they sell them at..:wave_cry:

    I am a CDer so maybe that explains the lack of knowledge here....

    sorry, just curious..

    :sad0071:...butting out now...

    I go in for my fruit and veg. I find it so much fresher and tastier than Asda's.

    Will keep an eye open for the linessa stuff!:)

    Lidl is fab...as is Aldi. A lot of the foods there are considered 'top makes' in other parts of Europe :clap:

    Once you know what to go for there's some great quality food for a fab price.

    I think with both Lidl and Aldi, you need to know what to buy before you go. I know mse had a huge thread of recommendations. Haven't seen that thread for a while though.

    I love the wholegrain yoghurts in Aldi. Lubberly stuff. Also buy the trout in Lidl if it's on special. Have it with a salad and it's gorgeous.

    I also try to buy my sliced meat for sandwiches from Lidl as theirs doesn't contain added water :clap:

    What's hot and what's not at Aldi/Lidl/Netto...

    I agree some of the stuff in Lidl and Aldi is fantastic value - other stuff tastes awful. I buy, try .. and if no good feed it to the birds! If it's good then we eat for less than at tescos!

    Love their weekly bargain bin sections ... beautiful lavendar plants in Lidl this week.
