One of the ways to deal with inflation is to learn to shop at discount supermarkets, such as Costco (which particularly requires a membership card to shop) or one of its competitors: LIDL, whose discounts are like a raging river that passes fast and in large quantities, and sometimes it doesn’t give you time to keep up.
The German chain entered the United States in 2015 and, since then, has made itself a place in the American market for its low prices and very high quality products. Currently, the chain is present only on the east coast, but it is growing rapidly to the west. In September, LIDL announced that it will reduce the price of more than 100 products, to help its consumers face inflation, but there are hundreds of offers beyond that announcement, and we have found five items for you.
LIDL’s great value products
If you live nearby a LIDL store, do not hesitate to visit it in November to try this products and, if not, we’ve already found incredible items in Costco and in ALDI, in case you live by their stores. Check’em out!
If you are looking for a light and delicious breakfast, these apple turnovers are fantastic for that task. They are produced in the in-house bakery of each supermarket, so, if you are lucky, you can find them freshly made.
It’s a classic that LIDL brought in his suitcase from Germany, a tried and true classic with a delicious apple filling. And they don’t just serve for breakfast: after a dinner, with a scoop of ice cream, they work as a terrific dessert. They are on sale in a two-pack for $1.19.
Cultured Irish Butter
This butter, winner of the gold medal of the Los Angeles International Dairy Products Competition 2018 is sold exclusively under the Lidl Preferred Selection brand. The “cultured butter” is like regular butter but with one additional step in the process: after pasteurization, the cream is fermented by adding a carefully selected bacterial culture and then left to ferment. The longer you culture, the better and more intense the butter turns out.
When I go to this supermarket, I choose this brand over others for its quality and for the good value-price ratio. An 8-ounce package is worth $3.45.
The German company has been awarded multiple times with its private label wines. At the Sommeliers Choice Awards of 2021, he received 47 gold medals with wines starting at $4.50.
Highlights the Rosecreek Riesling Washington with an incredible price of $9.99. He has been awarded a gold medal at the 2020 San Francisco International Wine Competition, a gold medal at the 2021 Sommeliers Choice Awards and a silver medal at the 2021 USA Wine Ratings Competition.
Before the Butcher Uncut plant-based ground chorizo
Before the Butcher is making life impossible for established brands such as Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods. Their Uncut plant-based ground chorizo looks, smells, cooks and tastes incredibly similar to a ground beef chorizo, but is free of animal products.
In addition, it is gluten-free and none of its ingredients are genetically modified.
Organic 100% Spanish extra virgin olive oil
Spain is one of the authorities on olive oil in the world. LIDL knows this and that is why its private label uses 100% Spanish oil of the highest quality, which has even been awarded in various international competitions in one of its variants.
It is cold pressed, which guarantees a much more succulent and aromatic extraction, which also maintains the nutritional properties. And it has the USDA organic certification.
