anyone got any suggestions for best supermarket selection boxes? eg. morrisons, asda, tesco lidl, aldi, netto etc.
Morrisons is Cosmic- under name Dynasty. I think their starting price is £14, but on an eternal buy one get one free- pretty samey effects. The best offer, if you are inclined to go to Morrisons is the Golden Dragon box, 5 rockets and a Cake for £32. But I wouldn't recomment it. Go to a shop and choose cakes and rockets that you like the look of rather than going with the single line sold by Supermarkets.
ASDA- TNT, who are actually quite good at selection boxes- lots of pieces in the smaller box, if thats what you are looking for.
Tesco- Depends on the store, but expect average stuff. They used to do "buy on get one free" on all selection boxes. this was trickery- they simply sold the box at double its value. EG get a selection box worth £9.99, mark it as " £19.99 Buy one get one free. " Also firework sales arn't 24 hours.
Lidl- a £5 box and a bigger £15 box- never seen them, its cosmic brand.
Aldi- Weco brand stuff- the £20 box contained some interesting bigger items, like multishot Roman Candles, spreading fountains, Fountain/Candle combinations etc. Actually pretty good value.
Netto- - Cosmic I think?
Co-OP- Just some little Standard or Cosmic Stuff.
My tip, if you have the space, is to buy a smaller selection box and then treat yourself to a bigger firework or two from a firework shop.
Also Men Shuns £1.99 and £2.99 cakes are great value- 19 shotters, generally better than selection box stuff. Likewise TNTS "Night Treasure" or Kimboltons "Glittering Gemstones" for example- multiple (9) fountains ignited from one fuse that give a much better show than selection box stuff for £4.99 each.
