I'm normally a bit suspicious about dodgy ripoff products, especially when it comes to chocolate bars. Sainsburys in particular make far inferior own-brand versions of the real thing but I have to say the Mister Choc "Peanut-Choco" from Lidl is a fine substitution for a Snickers.

Gets a thumbs up from me.

Any other good ones out there?

Almost everything from Lidl rocks! I only ever shop there and the Coop and I agree that the Mister Choc bars are lush. I will have to pick up a pack (or three) as I am doing the grocery shopping in the marvelous Lidl tomorrow.

The best fake chocolate...you make it yourself ;) We where on an 8 hour bus ride with some friends, we had some chocolates, ate one, then filled it with ex-lax, closed it good enough to seem sealed, and gave it to a friend.

He didn't see the funny side of it :p

Lidl do some awesome chocolate :D

Mister choc certainly is lush..


The only thing i don't like from Lidl is a certain type of sausage they do, we have them once and it was like tropical fruit sausage.


But instead of 5 or 6 different fruits is was 5 or 6 different animals :eek:

Just goes to show (like someone already mentioned) how their stuff comes from the continent which is then repacked. 'Butter Keks' are a German thing. They are so tasty. :)

Asda's version is fantastc, I can't remember what they're called.

Mighty bars or something but they are an exact copy of Snickers.

One of my friends think she's some sort of Queen and will refuse to eat any food stuff from any shop other than Marks & Spencers or Waitrose.

I loved giving her a bowl of chocolates and saying they were Marks & Spencers's and then hearing her lecture us about how these chocs taste better than any crap that Tesco or Nettos make, and how quality costs a bit extra. Her face was priceless when I reveal they were from Lidls. :D

I much prefer Aldi's (or maybe Lidls ?) Titan bar to a Mars :)

One of each has opened up near us, and though some of there stuff really does suck, it has nice cheeses, cooked meats and general continental stuff etc :)
