    Really nice. £1.69 for a pack of 6. Thick, good quality chocolate, creamy ice cream. Same size as a magnum as well.

    Probs made in the same factory.

    Ice cream is difficult to buy in LIdl, as it is unlikely you will get it through the check out queue before it melts.

    Thanks for the tip, @blazer - I love a Magnum and will pop in to Lidl later this week.

    I love Lidl's ice cream.

    Strange how I manage to get through the tills and drive 15 miles back to my house.

    One local Lidl has self-service checkouts as an option, thank goodness!

    Aldi has their own version, too. And mini ones which make you feel less guilty!

    My family all agree that Lidl almond lollies are way better than Magnums.

    They do a minty version too which are gorgeous! Haven’t had any this year but will be doing Lidl for my next shop just so I can get some:D

    Yes, I have tried most types of choc ice. Aldi’s at around £1.69 are excellent quality and value. Nom nom!!

    There's always one who has to spoil the joke by quoting facts.

    My son says the Aldi ones are disgusting but he likes the co-op ones.

    I like the mini ones from Lidle too. Makes you feel less guilty about having a little treat.

    You can buy mini Magnums ? My husband likes them but I am not a fan of ice cream

    Two bottles are better than one

    Perhaps it is a problem with Lidl and Aldi in our local area. Although the shops have four or five check outs, only one is manned and, especially later in the day, a good proportion of the automated checkouts have stopped working. The worst we have seen is on automated checkout that did not take notes or cards, only coins. In the Uxbridge Lidl there is always a member of staff shepherding the queue for the automated tills, flitting from one to the other, sorting out the the problems with them.

    Sainsbury's also do mock Mini Magnums for about half the price of the official ones.

    I'm not surprised-I do mock them too, they are tiddly. What's the point?
