I have been doing click and collect recently and the young lad they have employed to help out on a Saturday is brilliant. I find they employ decent people in my area compared to Asda so I like that.

I'll tell you the one thing I don't like about Morrisons, they have a cheek to charge 50p for a carrier bag.

Ann1984 I think it's a disgrace to charge that amount for a paper bag, this all started because apparently there's not enough people using the bags for life and they're ending up in the bin, I for one won't be paying it.

tamirescriscio I take bags with me whenever I need to, I've got a few in my car and the missus also has some we also have the larger material bags for heavier items, the issue with charging 50p for a paper bag is that there isn't meant to be a charge for paper bags, the charges were meant to be for single use plastic carrier bags.

I love the salad bar, also the fresh meat. I’m usually Tesco’s as closer but love Morrison’s every now and then

Gosh, they don't even look like scones, more like rock cakes and looks like loads of sugar sprinkled on top. Scones are not meant to be sweet, even fruit ones, but whatever they are I expect they taste great.

Lynibis and blacklabrador Sometimes we find our perfect treat at the local supermarket and it's priceless. At the moment, I have no treats to look forward, only sometimes Lidl's croissants.

Lynibis rsrsrs I tried their tiger bread and sourdoughs. It wasn't bad. I am also worrying much more about people touching food at the supermarkets, but wiping it as soon as I get home puts my mind at ease. It's definitely overwhelming.

I shop online with Morrisons and like that when you put items in your basket the price stays the same up to delivery and the special offer price is honoured even if delivery is weeks later.

Morrisons has the best hot food and bakery section for me, reasonably priced and not soggy or deflated products, and their butchers is quite decent. They’re the only one who steadily sells ghost pepper products that I’ve come across - most supermarkets only do things like this seasonally

I love their tin soups, they do lots of flavours and are I think 39p a tin at the moment, they have been 35p and 38p recently. Mulligatawny soup is a favourite (spicy indian recipe soup). Just seem good quality for the price. Their fruit and veg is good quality although not always the cheapest. Annoyingly one of the best things is the short life reductions especially bread but you can only get those by going instore.

BonzoBanana as I am having a soup at the moment, I went to Morrisons' website to check their options rsrsrs, and you are right they look lovely and not too unhealthy. I will buy some to try. My favourite at the moment is classic chicken soup, it's really comforting 🙂 I get mine at Lidl, but I am looking to make my own batch.

tamirescriscio A few years ago I got a tin of soup at Lidl and it was very low grade when you opened the tin there was a thin layer of fat on the top that would absorb back in when you heated the soup up. I think it was some sort of noodle soup, it was so ghastly and low quality it put me off buying soup there again but I do buy Lidl foods just haven't been very impressed with their processed foods like tins. If they do some decent soups now I'll have to give them another try. Thinking about maybe the Lidl soup lacked emulsifiers which I guess could have made it more healthy but it tasted horrible as well as looking weird. I think it came from either Spain or Portugal. I've seen the same soup sold at Poundstretcher occasionally. A slightly different label but the image on it was near identical. The Poundstretcher labels always look a bit tired and faded.

When I'm dieting I often go on a soup and salad diet with 2 meals a day one being soup and the other I'm sure you can guess being salad. I can lose a lot of weight that way if I don't cave in and have more food than I planned.

BonzoBanana At Lidl, I buy the chilled ones, which I like because it's handy. I find the corn and chicken healthier, less fat and salt, but the classic chicken still does the job. To be honest, I never tried canned soup in my life, but I feel like trying the ones from Morrisons because of you! hahahahaha I also tried the chilled ones from Tesco and Sainsbury. I still need to try some fancy ones from M&S and Waitrose, when I get a chance. I am really craving soup at the moment because of the weather and the whole world situation, it's a bit of daily joy. Unfortunately, I don' have a Poundstretcher near me, but I will see if I can find their website to check some of their products. I am having a hard time to eat salads at the moment, what type salad do you eat during winter? I used to love the Morrisons salad bar when I lived at Ealing Broadway, I used to buy one every other day and get extra free chicken sometimes! 😄!!The best £2,50 spend! I hope you are having a good week and thank you so much for commenting! 😄

Auntielettie that's very creative and you are right, Christmas packaging can add £1 or more depending on what bag you choose, if you have lots of presents to buy it can get more expensive. thank you for sharing this hack! 🙂

Thanks dear for this topic I like to do shopping in Morrison as we have a store like walking distance we can go there 10 times a day I did shop online once when they reduced Ferrero Rocher 48 pack on Boxing Day few years ago when order arrived they sent 24pack full price which was bad experience with them first and last time i did shopping online with them. in store I have no issue only few things which are they needs to improve always they have less stock for top brands items mostly they keep there own brands like we buy kingsmill bread never got from them Tesco and Asda always keep Stock. other eggs we buy( happy eggs )some time we get but most times shelves empty they keep there own brands eggs. fresh bakery side I like some of things I am happy with fresh fruit and vegetables they have all the time good stock and fresh too. in frozen they have good stock for (suitable for vegetarians Halal) which is most help us they do offer on them every time. nearly a year since we are in lockdown there frozen products help me alot kids can cook in the air fryer easily which helped me Most that’s it only few things let them down they need to improve. I hope my comment will help. have a good day😊

Jasmine111 thank you for kindly writing so much, this definitely will help me! I have the same problem with eggs and it's really frustrating! when I find the ones I like I get in double. I bake a lot so they are very essential in my house rsrsrsrs. I am also buying a lot of frozen food, I even got a mini freezer to store more and I also got a air fryer which is so helpful. Did you complain about your Ferrero Rocher box?

Hmm Morrisons! They have a good children’s clothing range in the nutmeg clothing. Our local store often doesn’t have the items I require in stock, they also bite your head off if you try to use the salad bar close to closing time. Good to have local to do top up shops.
