    Usually go to Lidl over Aldi 'cause you can get fresh bread and pastries from the bakery in-store, get a few bits from Morrisons as well.

    I don't know why anyone would really care about the "experience". It's food shopping not a leisure activity.

    I have the money, probably more than you but I don't like wasting it on things that are hell lot cheaper. Chavs lol, only if you're in a rundown area, as my aldi carpark is starting to be full of luxurious cars, but if you like to be ignorant then sure
    LOL 😂😂

    Shop at Asdas. Normally get Asdas own brand, smart price. Hence, quite cheap and taste good.
    Aldi has too long queues and it's really cramped, the till staffage is also an issue.

    There was a TV show exposing Aldi a few months back. Plus i hate aldi in general, some of their produce isn't up to scratch. A friend of mine found a dead wasp in their peas.
    Fo you know what the show was called? I really want to see it. Someone else told me about it but I fail to remember who

    Because TESCO is less than a 15 minute walk away and lidl/aldi are more than a 15 minute drive away... And I don't have a car.

    There is isn't one close to me, I can't always get what I want in them, I don't like them, and I spend £20-25 max a week shopping at Asda.

    It worries me that they're so cheap, esp on things like meat! They're either doing a bad turn with the farmers, and not paying what they deserve, or they're putting something in the meat to make it stretch....I prefer to pay more and know that it's real meat

    I shop at Tesco and Sainsbury's because there's hardly any Lidl's/Aldis near me.
    Unlucky LIDL is amazing

    I shop in a bunch of different shops as I'm lucky enough to have a lot of variety of shops at a convenient distance to me.

    I think fresh produce quality really depends on store to store as opposed to the chain as whole though. I often hear a lot of people say aldi or lidl sell rotten fruit and veg, something I have never experienced. Whereas twice in this past week I have found rotten veg in my two nearest Tescos, it's just poor stock rotation.

    The nearest one is too far away. Otherwise I'd be all over it.
