I’ve been meaning to go to the big Lidl that opened up in Shoreham as it’s the closest big supermarket and you can find some really great vegan stuff. So today I thought I’d venture out and see what the fuss was about.
I was pleasantly surprised and will definitely be shopping here more. Now if I hadn’t forgotten a £1 coin so I could actually get a trolley instead of loading up a basket or 2 like the tower of Pisa that would’ve made the trip much more enjoyable. Instead, I struggled around the store lugging my wares resembling a red-faced sweaty pig. *Sighs…
I expected more of the fresh produce but found some good items. For me the frozen section, the cereal and chocolate isles were where I found the really great stuff.
I’m really into frozen fruit atm with this heat. These are great for smoothies, yoghurt/cereal toppers, flavouring drinks/cocktails or eaten alone. These were just £1.59 each for 400 & 500g! Much more cost effective than fresh fruit and perfect for these sunny days. I would’ve got more if I had more space in the freezer.
I must admit due to not having a trolley I couldn’t have a leisurely browse like I’m used to. It also makes finding new vegan products a lot easier if you’ve got time and arms to check the ingredients list. But I still found some really great stuff!
I always tend to buy veggie burgers like these wherever I shop as they’re good to have on weekends or when you want to make something quick. They also did cauliflower burgers which I prematurely got excited about.. they were cauliflower (dairy) cheese burgers.
These were the biggest bargains of my shop I think as I’ve seen versions of these in Holland and Barrett and other health stores for a lot more. Don’t get me wrong I love h&b but when you don’t have much money and you live by yourself it’s great to find all these at such good prices!
- Mixed Linseeds £1.99
- Crispbreads £1.29
- Seed mix bags £1.25
- Muesli 500g £1.59
- Cashews, almonds & pecans 200g £1.72
I got so many veggies and healthy things but I don’t pretend like I don’t love chocolate. I eat it daily even if it’s just a couple of squares. I’m addicted! Vegan chocolate can be really pricey so it makes a habit like mine expensive.. rather like a drug problem. Boo.. 🙁 These 100g bars of plain dark chocolate cost just 30p!! On reflection 6 bars was not enough. I am a moron?
Mint cream bars JUST 89p! I only got 2. Refer to above statement.
Sea salt and orange choc bars £1.29
So that concludes all my amazing finds at Lidl today. I hope to see you all going out and getting some of these bargains, and if you find any new ones feel free to share. I welcome any recommendations and will try to get more next time! 🙂
