    The Coconut / Macadamia bars are really nice.

    Picked up one of the 58" 444 tv's today, won't be able to check it out for a while though.

    Snagged the last 750ml bottle of Patron XO Cafe at my local today. Noticed Dan's have dropped the price on their 700ml ($0.04 cheaper for 50ml less), was nearly $70 when I looked the other day. Also got one of the Crofton cast iron enameled pots - haven't tried yet but reviews fr past sales are good.

    Saw some smiths tomato sauce chips there on Thursday, buy a pack, eat about 4 chips and decide nope; they're stale. Fully sealed pack. Just a heads up to avoid.

    As an aside, about 2.25 years ago I bought an aldi 4 stroke brushcutter/linetrimmer cause the price was hard to argue with for a four stroke, straight shaft line trimmer, and it had the usual 3 year warranty. It finally died a couple of months ago, blown piston rings, oil smoke going everywhere. Returned it this week and got a full refund relatively few questions asked. Cant really complain about that. I mean I gave it regular oil changes, and didnt use it beyond home use really, so it probably shouldnt have blown piston rings that early, but still, nice to know they dont put you through the ringer on it even after two years
