Try Lidls batts ketchup, just as good as heinz and half the price.

You are correct, although the brown sauce is not so good.
Very good cheap beer also

many of the biggest beer-brands on the planet are little more than glorified ditch-water. A 3/10 at best.

you are literally paying for all the adverts during the break of the Champions League. The most expensive advert slots in the industry.

there is some seriously good beer out there, in bottles that are not very famous

 


Pay for a BBC TV license ? yeah, right.

Wound tightly and doesn’t break up. Trust me.

Aha, cheap bog rolls are generally a con. Not only loosely wound but they usually have a a card tube in the middle with a wider diameter.

Joseph Joseph cooking utensils. Generally really really good. Good design and the right materials. Except we thought the JJ potato peeler was really poor, compared to stuff already on the market. And JJ stuff ain't cheap.

Other companies have now jumped on the bandwagon with bright plastic utensils and ironed-out a few of the glitches with the JJ stuff, and a fair bit cheaper. JJ, like Dyson, took their eye off the ball.

Pays your money, takes your choice.

Harpo, is that the benchmark you tested it against. Or the the bog rolls themselves?

.

the Whitgift did have public tastings of wines, cheeses & beer.

Not sure how a public test of that product would work ?

Baked beans has to be Branston by a country mile.Bog rolls from Sainsbury`s 247 brand,scented too.If you suffer from hard water like us Yorkshire tea for hard water is lovely and doesn`t leave scum around the cup but not cheap.I`m starting to hear funny rumours about the new E10 fuel as well.

 


You`re making me go back to Buckeye Road?

a souped-up Hot hatchback, 10 years old.

or

a new Supersports car ( Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Porsche )

For speed around the roads...cheap is almost as good as a dear one.

For pulling the birds, maybe not so much.

Jeremy Clarkson will disagree. But he has a special racetrack and doesnt factor in....

- traffic congestion
- speed cameras
- legality & points on driving license
- insurance costs & theft
- transporting groceries from Lidl/Aldi.

Just been to a large B&M (yesterday). Got loads of genuine food at less than half supermarket prices.

Have also taken a chance on a few looky-likey items. Danepak butter (as opposed to Lurpak), ingredients % are very similar , but for half the price. Tinned stuff, like tomatoes and sweetcorn all for much less. (I am particular about baked beans, so stick with Heinz)

Slippers, socks and woolly hats, all very cheap.

The tool section was full of yellow and black stuff, labelled something like,..DeVelt. All perfectly good stuff for the average DIY and home mechanic.

Also bought a couple of tins of shortbread from Aldi, a few doors away. Really cheap, and absolutely the best shortbread I've ever tasted. Melt in the mouth, rather than chewing a rock

Which shortbread is it? Last year's one I got from Aldi was s***e. Hard and brown. Is it the specially selected or whatever they call it?

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!
