I love Aldi. I really do. When I first heard of Aldi I thought it was a place that sold German car parts. That was a long time ago. But what I like about Aldi is that it has really good products…at low prices! So I wanted to share 5 best buys from Aldi for under £1.00. Why £1.00? I thought it was a bit of a challenge. As you know we like challenges from our 5 meals from Waitrose for £20.00 post which you can read here.
So before we get into the list, there were 2 other products ... (Read more)
I am back with an Aldi post and a review of their Triple Chocolate Swill Roll because it’s delicious. Sorry, sorry I know I should not be giving awya my opinion so early but you saw the title right? So let’s discuss why this is a hidden gem.
So some months ago I came across this box of Triple Chocolcate Swiss Roll. Now I surprised myself for buying this because I was never a fan of swiss rolls. What made me buy it? Well Aldi’s Specially Selected products just catch the eye, the packaging looks really good. Also most of ... (Read more)
It’s only recently I have discovered the new market of the dairy-free/ plant-based milk. It’s getting more and more popular for lots of reasons apart from being a vegan product. So I am excited to review the Oatly Oat Drink – Barista Edition because it’s taste really good in anything…apart from coffee.
As I grow older, my milk intake has decreased drastically. I tend to find myself falling sick after having milk especially in the winter. I don’t know the exact cause but I think dairy makes me develop colds. So I have taken some interest in dairy-free milk 2 ... (Read more)
Continuing with some more halal food reviews, I came across something rather interesting. A box of Salaam Foods Hot & Breaded Spicy Wings which was just eyeing up to be reviewed.
Growing up my group of friends loved chicken wings…well they still do. I was never the biggest fan. I preferred my chicken off the bone whichever way it was cooked. But you will find lots of fried chicken places in Asian populated areas so you get used to it…a little too much.
I remember when my older cousins used to return from London and bring back about 30 – ... (Read more)
I am back with reviewing more Halal products because we need to have more halal reviews on this website. Actually I just realised this is Onion Bhaji’s so we don’t have to say its Halal. Ah it’s okay, the company who produced this is Halal, so it’s all fine. Continuing on with my not-so-secret Asda Halal grocery haul, this post I will be discussing Shazan’s 10 Bite-Size Onion Bhajis.
I have a little history with onion bhajis. I worked in a family-run restaurant some time ago where we sold them round and flat. Then we started making them into palm-sized ... (Read more)
This weeks post I am reviewing Aisha’s Breaded Chicken Goujon because it’s halal. Also, I wanted to talk about halal food available in supermarkets that end up taking up a lot of space in Asian freezers…freezer number 2 that is.
Since moving to Birmingham, I have been fortunate to have more halal options available to me. Down South in my parent’s little peaceful village, the nearest Asian foodstore was a 7.7 mile drive (according to google maps). To be honest, us Asian’s living in these type of areas have got used to it. We buy in bulk thus the freezer ... (Read more)
I am back to review one of the favourite foods in this nation. No, it’s not curry, although that is a favourite too. It’s battered fish! More specifically I am reviewing Lidls Deluxe 2 Jumbo Battered Cod Fillets. Why you ask. Because people need answers and I am here to provide those answers!
So getting straight into it. I want to talk about the price. It’s expensive, really expensive. These 2 Cod Fillets cost £3.19. I still shed a tear when I think about it. But Mrs Reviews wanted some good quality fish for dinner. She never really asks for ... (Read more)
How cool and hipster is Halloumi right now? It’s probably one of the trendiest and versatile foods out there. I have seen it used in so many different types of dishes. So I was surprised and not-so-surprised at the same time when I came across Aldi’s Specially Selected Halloumi Fries. It was instantly in the trolley because I had to try it. I did double-check the price of course!
Halloumi can be used in dishes in many ways. I once came across a menu where the vegetarian options were halloumi burger, halloumi chips and halloumi salad. At work, we have ... (Read more)
If you are anything like us, then you probably assume it’s expensive to shop in Waitrose. Being a young family, we don’t often do a full shop there and mostly shop at Aldi or Lidl which are close to us and also great for budget shopping.
When we do shop in Waitrose, it’s mainly for Baby Reviews because we want him to enjoy organic fruit and vegetables and our local Waitrose has a pretty good selection. However, we do usually end up buying a few things for ourselves as evident from our first review. But we never thought ... (Read more)
Anyone else find that going shopping makes them get pretty hungry? That’s my reason behind purchasing this little item during a grocery shop on a rainy Friday evening. As I wandered down the aisles, my eyes ravenously scoured the shelves, looking for something to satisfy my craving quickly enough when we got home before I entered full-on ‘hangry’ mode.
I decided to settle on this vegetarian pie from Aldi’s chilled section. It is actually much smaller than it appears in the photo. Approximately hand-size and only needed about 10 minutes in an oven to be heated up and ready.
I’ll ... (Read more)
