    No but I'd love to. Looks like a great price.

    I'm thinking about the sunlounger tomorrow.

    i dont want to commit to a whole box if their rubbish, but saw them on saturday. They come in either the normal pretzel (like a soft pretzel) or pretzel sticks

    once, yonks ago (4-5yrs ago). baked in oven and then just used them to dip in soup etc.

    quite salty but then it is a pretzel :p
    was good and would buy again.

    obviously not as good as buying one fresh in Bavaria, I'm over there every 6-10 months so stick to the fresh stuff.

    same reason I stopped eating schnitzel in AU, we can't make it like those Austrians & Bavarians

    Yea man, those majans mix have been at coles/woollies for years. My only beef with them is they don't have a single product that doesn't have some sort of bite to them. I'd like a mix that is like, normal and doesn't leave nothing but a chilli flake tasting burning in the mouth.

    I tried those rosemary/garlic chips last week. They're just strange. Very strong rosemary taste, initially reminds one of a lamb roast, but then just seems strange. I recently found the bbq honey (something like that), crinkle cuts, they're pretty good.

    Also If you're into it, I see ice break is at aldi now too. I personally don't like those much, but others do.

    Aldi has their $199 two door gas smoker back on saturday the 28th.

    I didn't buy one last year because I was unsure of Aldi product quality (they were still new to perth), but this year I'm gonna go get one.

    Like many things at Aldi, it's a relabelled brand name. Their Coolabah smoker is a rebadged Hark smoker. :thumbup:

    Ah yes.
    I remember now people saying this last year after I missed out.
    Even more reason to buy one for 199.

    Picked up one of the 'Premium 29er' mountain bikes that came in a couple weeks ago. They got the solid reviews for the money, and it was reduced to $180 on the weekend.

    Winning.:D

    I bought one of their "heat and serve" meals, chicken pesto pasta. I wasn't expecting much, but it was really very nice. Also, garlic bread not too shabby. It says it's enough for 5 so for 9.99 pretty cheap and around $2 for the garlic bread. Any of their food I've had, I haven't gone "yuck, that's foul". I didn't like their frozen pies compared to my usual ones, but otherwise it's all edible (so far).
