Pheasant at Lidl

Lidl is the sort of place I associate with frozen burgers and oven chips - so I was amazed to see the supermarket offering pheasant as part of their 'Luxury for All' promotion.

Great stuff - it shows how far game has come in the last few years, when what is, let's face it, a fairly downmarket retailer reckons it can make a go of selling pheasant to its customers.

At £7.99 a bird Lidl should be making a good mark-up, which I don't begrudge them one bit if it helps to establish pheasant in the urban British diet. After all, it's hard to be anti-shooting and enjoy a roast pheasant at the weekend.

In praise of Lidl

Try their pork products, particulaly the Panchetta - a serious bargin and WAY better than the tesco equivilent.

While you're there try the single coutry of origin chocalate.Yummy

in my opinion, what you do is absolutely disgusting! people moan that certain animals are becoming instinct, well those gorgeous and harmless animals that you are killing for fun, will soon become instinct if you heartless people carry on! out of all the fun things this world offers us, you decide to take away the life of some of natures most beautiful creatures, why do you do it? and what's the point?.
