Seems most places that sold semi decent stuff last year like Cosmic are all heading towards TNT. If the range is anything like what ASDA have had the last few years it's going to dissapoint a lot of people.
Currently firing for Skyburst - The Firework Co.

We are indeed, and indeed we do!


Phew- at least my info was correct - I checked your website again this morning,
and it looks like some of your pack offers are actually very good.

Anybody know what Costco are doing this year? Ok its not quite a supermaket, but still....


Standard AGAIN.

They do have some nice candles on offer int he discount booklet, £3 off a pack, they are normally about 40% off RRP on fireworks so definately worth a look. They had the SIB by standard last year that was essentially collousus last year for £40.... bargains!

Picked up a Morrrisons leaflet at the weekend, I'm tempted to try a couple of the cakes but I don't know.

Is everything the supermarkets are selling this year 1.4G?

Ahhh... an interesting question!

Best thing is to wait until they are actually selling stuff, and work from there- one of the smarkets withdrew some rockets last year as they were 1.3G.

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

I'm confused, the stuff Morrisons are selling looks the same as always but is it all going to be really weak stuff?

A 100 shot cake for £5? Might be a pen lid I'm not sure but can't be much for that price surely.

Also TNT Fireworks have this thing about putting a sort of 'performance picture' on the side of some fireworks, with a picture of like a huge proffesional looking shell burst.

So people think 'wow', fire it and then oh dear, thats what happened to me with a candle from a TNT box I got from Asda a few years ago and looking at the Morrisons stuff they seem to have done it again.

They might add the note "Picture is for illustration purposes only and doesn't represent the fireworks effect" or similar...

Still, annoying!

Anyone know what the £2.50 cake is like? I know it wont be much, but for £2.50 I might buy it just for a try :)

Has anyone heard/ saw anything of Aldi's fireworks this year, was going to buy some, but they normally have them on their special buys (thursday) but theirs non their!

I have to say I can disagree with some over this BUT, I am happy to see some "entry level" fireworks on the market. Affordable cat2 stuff is what starts people on the road to smelling the smoke. Much of the supermarket BOGOF stuff is incredible value for money.

Some of us get our kicks from the thump of a shell leaving the tube. The general public will never fire shells, they enjoy the look of a firework when they have lit the fuse and retired to a safe distance.

Keep mannequins and watermelons away from fireworks..they always get hurt..
