Never too early in my book ;-)


Sainsbury's had some good offers on the usual chocolate suspects, the Cadbury tins etc were only £4 instead of £12. Wondering if that may be store specific though because my MIL went to her local store and they were still £12 - why do they do that?!

As for the Baileys, I trying Aldi's alternative this year, everyone tells me it tastes exactly the same and a 700ml bottle is only £5!

The Baileys equiv from Aldi is almost as good, but it's not the real thing

Asda is still on at £13, have you tried hotukdeals ? They have some good offers

Martini Asti Spumanti is down to £5 in Asda, also they have the 3 x chocolates for £10, some of the boxes were nearly £7 if bought separately.

That's lucky, you can find so much better stuff in the US! I spend a fortune each Christmas shipping stuff over and just hope customs don't stop the packages so I get no further charges!

That is one Baileys I don't want to try

Tins of Celebrations, Heroes etc are £5 in Asda.

I'm actually looking forward to Christmas this year as i'm only working Christmas day and have Christmas eve & Boxing day off for once

Have you weakened yet?

I love the sound of this. I didn't even know Baileys did an orange flavour so I googled it and it looks like Tesco is the only supermarket who'll be stocking it. Three guesses where I'm off to tonight?
