Aldi ground almonds
« on: 05 January 2013, 11:36:06 AM »
Bought some more the other day, still 99p but the bag size was 180g.

I'm sure they used to be 200g for 99p or is my memory going ?

You're right.  I noticed that when I last bought some.

FWIW Lidl are now doing 200g for £1.09 which saves me a 30 mile round trip.

Or, in this instance, £1.09...!

early morning: Levemir, 50 u;
at each main meal: NovoRapid, ~12-25 u, with Metformin, 2 x 500 mg;
just before bedtime: Levemir, 50 u; also aspirin, and very reluctantly atorvastatin 10 mg.

Well 200g @ 99p for 180g, works out at £1.10 - so buying em from Lidl IS worth it !
