    They intend to have only three staff after 9pm - they may not be able to remain open with less - perhaps they had a staffing issue?

    I will be attending Lidl later today.

    I went last night and not one of the staff bothered to tell me that I needed milk, as my current supply would be 'turning' a bit during the night.

    This system failure has happened before, and it is just not good enough.

    Lidl are selling 'Oakland' Cotton Candy grapes.

    Do not be fooled, don't buy them!

    They are more addictive than heroin.

    I have just eaten a whole box.

    I have a confession to make. I have only stepped foot into Stafford Lidl once since it opened.

    Thank you.

    I have whole a list of reasons why I go there - that one was missing.

    A general lack of shoppers in Lidl was one of its major features - there's getting to be more now, but it's still fairly empty after 8pm.

    Saw some in Tesco yesterday advertised as candy floss grapes, do they taste like actual candy floss or are they just a bit sweeter?

    I wouldn't describe the flavour in that manner, but they are rather nice.

    I've been thinking about it (and little else), and they have a similar, slightly-perfumey taste to that which you get with Pink Lady apples.

    Not in the slightest bit reminiscent of cotton candy/candy floss, to be fair.

    You wait, today it's "rather nice" in a weeks time you will be desperate, skint and trouserless in the market square wearing a sign " will dance for Oakland' Cotton Candy grapes".
