Waitrose vs Tesco

Hi all!!
I was wondering which do you prefer, Waitrose Value or Tesco Finest? I've been discussing this with my husband Jonathon and having quite a frank argument in the middle of Waitrose this afternoon !

He said he hates shopping in the afternoon and has found better things to do.

Waitrose rips you off in a pretend middle class way and Tesco rips you off in a pretend proletarian way. They both rip you off. You just choose the ambiance.

Aldi is awful. Poor quality and cynical copies of real brands and slowest checkouts ever.
Tesco all the way.

I've tried loads of different brands but must say M&S are the best closely followed by Waitrose. They taste even better when they are free.

I hate snobs. Do a blind taste test...aldi wins everytime.

Go to Waitrose for an occasional treat, but anyone who buys everyday things there like dustbin bags is a mug. I used to shop at Aldi all the time until Tesco finally got the message and realised that all they had to do was drop their prices. Tesco now has fruit, veg and meat at competitive prices, so I only do Aldi occasionally now - I'd shop there all the time, but my sons moan at me for not buying well known brands, even though an Aldi digestive biscuit tastes no different to me.

But at least the Waitrose dustbin bags are thick enough. The Tesco ones are really crap, so thin that more often than not they split whilst taking them out of the bin and deposit their contents over the floor. Tescos have reimbursed me twice for a roll of bags and given me a fiver to say sorry. However, the bags are still incredibly thin. I'm seriously considering taking the bin in and asking the managers to try getting the bag out of the bin without splitting it.

Waitress currently has an advert by the main entrance encouraging parents to send their daughters to Roedean. We doubt if the same message is being aimed at Tesco customers.

@bustybarmaid. Please answer your phone. She has left me and taken all the bags for life with her

Clifford- If like me you visit the shops out of necessity, and not for an "experience", then Aldi is best. They don't have a full range; but their Germanic efficiency means you can be in and out reasonably promptly.
