It's a close thing but I think I prefer Aldi but where I am there are 2 Lidls and no Aldi but one is opening in a few months. However I've visited many Aldi's away from home. Really though they are incredibly similar offering a very similar range of products and similar prices overall although do different weekly offers.

Definitely Aldi. I’m not really keen on the choice in Lidi. Would take a lot to convert me from Aldi though 🙈

I've rarely been to either of their stores, because I'm not near any. Although, Lidl are rapidly expanding and plan to open an additional 230 stores in the next few years. Including one that is quite close to where I live.

Another vote for Aldi from me, not sure why I just prefer their stores to Lidl's.

Aldi for me also. I only go in for a few set items that I like.

I hardly ever go to Lidl as there isn't one local to me. But there is an Aldi which I go to fairly regularly. So my vote obviously goes to Aldi.

I think each have their perks. I used to prefer Lidl but Aldi is much closer to me now and there's a lot I prefer there now too. I'd go to Lidl sometimes though just for the bakery!

I like both, but to get the best out of the 2 you always have to switch, as both do promotions and weekly specials that can be hit and miss. I’m close to both so it doesn’t bother me to pop into them as often as possible

I don’t have either that close to me that are worth the drive to but I do have a Jacks which is the Tesco version of a cheaper store and they do all the Tesco own brand products for cheaper just with Jacks labels on. The quilted toilet roll and washing powder and bottled water is exactly the same and near enough £1 cheaper per item.

I have both shops pretty close together in my town but I've always preferred Aldi to Lidl, don't get me wrong I will pop into Lidl maybe once every 2 months or so just for a change of scenery.

They're both German, both cheap and both have a middle aisle containing all the interesting stuff.

Aldi has become a lot more 'British' in recent years because it needed to for the boring and predictable British public. They've of course spent millions in advertising too. This has helped to bring in the average iPhone bearing, Mini / Audi / Nissan / other generic SUV driver after they've been down to Nandos for bants and Instagram.

Lidl still feels a little more continental in layout. When I say continental, I don't mean Benidorm. I mean actual proper European (German in particular, funny enough). It also has a fresh self-serve bakery a little bit like American supermarkets. This was tempting until an airborne virus was around. I bought a brilliant popcorn maker in there.

If you want the transition from Tesco or any older British supermarket to be a small one, choose Aldi. If you feel a little more adventurous, choose Lidl. I personally began shopping at Aldi when it was cool years ago like Lidl still is.

I shop at Aldi because it's marginally closer and their desserts are like, well nice.
