Regarding Aldi I bought the Lord of the nights pack last year, £20 for 4 16 shot cakes and 2 100 shot candles, wasn't expecting much from it but when it came to firing them they were amazing really big flash breaks that lifted really high in the sky. Was hoping they would be back this year to pick up a few more. I still have a few in storage so all is not lost. :) not long now untill all the shops are full of fireworks. Roll on nov 5th

I quite like Aldi's stuff.

I GOT THE £10 box last year, which was actaully quite good, and also the £5 bag, which for the price is a lot better than what some of the other supermarkets sell. I just hope they go with the same brand/ fireworks this year, as I may be tempted to buy that £20 box!

Sorry to make the same point over and over again, but is this sort of post really appropriate?

Surely if people want to see what Lidl sells they are perfectly able to look themseleves?

OK, interest in fireworks to be resumed in the spring. It usually is. ;)

Similar range to what Asda usually have, but smaller.

That super star selection box and the Starbusrt rockets, were in asda last year for 2 for £10. So, same price there two, we baught them (after gaining a free voucher, basiclly because we went to buy sparklers and they couldnt find the key!) and they were, erm not very good shall we say. The rockets were awful IMO

It's not "knowledge" though , is it? It's a link to a retail website and a price list. No mention is made of the fireworks themselves, how good they are etc

There are already threads about supermarket fireworks- what's so special about Lidl that they need their own thread?

Yes it is!

Come on David, I think most forum users are interested in what's available and where. You really shouldn't shoot the messenger.

A big thanks to Mark G from me (for keeping me up to date). I hope to see more posts like this.

well it's a strange 1st post, advertising products. But then again its not like the manager of lidl shop has come on here to sell ;).

but who are we to judge. That's why we have moderators on the site so sit back enjoy and let them decide if its not appropriate.:P

Fair points- this issue has come up before - Old link

With no disrespect the the original poster, this IS his first post.

The point is, if people are allowed post direct links and pricelists on the forums, especially brand new members, this could lead to all sorts of spam.

I'd say it's better if threads are topics for discussion, or recommendations/criticisms rather than simply post stating "this shop sells this."

very true nothing more annoying than "Hi my name in cing chan from china and you buy my products "link"

but at a least is fireworks spam (i like that kind of spam lol"

maybe the admin could send a invoice per non authorised advertising. wow the ukps would be rick.


on a serious note them prices see a good credit crunch price.
