Just a heads up as well for an additional few quid off if you plan on buying a good few boxes, we bought the Sunday Independent for the Aldi voucher and bought 10 boxes of the Celebrations and a few items off and received €10 off. Worth it if you're buying a few boxes or need to buy other stuff from Aldi.

I know Tesco and Dunnes have similar money off promotions when you spend over X too but I don't have the details.

Your typical Supermarket ploy have the chocies/sugardrinks and general hazardous food by the security gates and checkouts. And the greatest of Superfoods the Blueberry all the way in the produce section. When i was in Tesco a few days ago shopping i noticed a few people with half a trolley full of those cheap chocolates. Lets just say they wouldn't be running the local marathon anytime soon.

I would have thought that they should be in the produce section. they are fruit after all.

You're surprised that a supermarket has offers in a high traffic area, and fruit in the fruit section?

Just how many supermarkets have you been in?

You do realise that no food is a 'superfood' and it is all marketing rubbish??

No offense to Prof Mike Gibney from UCD. But i'd take what he says with a pinch of salt. Probably had one to many sherries writing that guff....
