Would Ya Dare Shop At Netto?

I've eaten half a bag of "Cool" Snackrite Tortilla Chips there from Aldi and they're another knockoff product I think I'd pick over the real thing.

There are so many cheaper alternatives that are just as good or better but when I was a kid you'd get absolutely pelted for shopping at Aldi or Netto. Netto especially.

If it was around today it'd make a fortune.

We did Aldi when I was a kid and their Lasagne was the dog's bollocks, as were these little oblong shaped yogurts with fruit at the bottom.

Jives are a poor man's Twix but I'd choose them all day long. Crumblier biscuit, smoother caramel.

Kids these days have it easy being able to shop there without becoming a pariah. What's the shop everyone even picks on these days?

If Aldi or Lidl did home delivery, we'd shop there pretty much exclusively. But yeah, back in the day, if you saw someone at school with a Netto bag, that kid was getting it. Even knowing full well my own mum was shopping at Netto and KwikSave on the regular.

Rumour was that it was easier to get served underage in Netto. Was it fuck. 

That sort of thing isn't decided by the chain, it's the individual server. You had to pick the cashier most likely not to give a shit/be intimidated by a gang of youths. Delete as applicable.

That's what I was thinking. Ok, Asda's reputation is a bit different to what it was in the 90s, but it was never a '4p for a can of baked beans' either.

I remember before there was Netto we had Ed. Even cheaper if I recall, a French chain. They sold ridiculous amounts of European bubblegum for next to nothing. You'd get the shit kicked out of you if you were seen in there, but everyone wanted to get cheap sweets from there.

I'm now at the stage where I reckon Jives are better than Twixes. Lidl's version isn't anything special.

Aldi have (possibly just phased out) beef and red wine flavored crisps which are gorgeous, and their Monster Claws are a credible challenger to Monster Munch.
