    They are loose, in the fresh bread baskets, labelled High Protein Rolls. 29p. Triangular, dark brown, covered with seeds.

    OMG - I sooooooo wish we had Lidl in Australia - spent 3 years in France between 2011 and 2013 and loved shopping there - these rolls sound fantastic

    And now - 4 for one pound!!
    I bought 4 as that was all that was left - and I know that if I had been able to buy more I'd have munched my way through them in a couple of days - I can resist anything but temptation.
    I'll be going back tomorrow to see if they are still on offer.

    Certainly when I shopped at Lidl in France - and Germany, all the stores had an inhouse baking machine and sold a variety of rolls loose. I loved the pumpkin seed ones, but of course didn't have diabetes diagnosed back then. Guess I presumed all Lidls were set up the same way - much as Aldi do here in Australia

    I hope Lidl's do come here to Australia, as it will shake the Colesworth monopoly up.

    Aldi's have three stores here in Bundaberg and are doing very well against them.

    Some old news here: http://thenewdaily.com.au/money/your-budget/2016/09/30/lidl-australia/

    Lidl in Melton Mowbray only had a few in the basket so I asked an assistant to cook some more and they were happy to do so, took just 20 minutes. He did query why I wanted 20 rolls, explained about diabetes and he was very interested also the shop is about 30 minutes drive from home so I stock up. OH has decided to do LCHF now so I will need more rolls in future.

    Yes it seems that Lidl have been on the horizon for a while now, but not getting any closer unfortunately........Most of my shopping is at Aldi (not sure how many they have in the Newcastle and surrounding areas - but there are lots) with just occasional top ups at Coles and Woolies. I know our population is so much smaller than many of the European countries, but I can't get over the number and the range of products that they have in the countries I've experienced recently - particularly Britain and France.

    I buy in bulk, at least a dozen at a time and most days I have half of one for breakfast so they last approx 2/3 weeks . I get one from the freezer and zap it on defrost in microwave for a couple of minutes and it. Ones out as fresh as the day it was bought.

    we have a Lidl on our doorstep so I regularly pop in for these rolls, I love them toasted with either peanut butter (if I want a sweet fix) or toasted with cheese melted under the grill - yummy :happy:

    Went into Lidl yesterday evening and were surprised to find 2 rolls left. So got a bread bag, put the rolls into it, only to find the bottom of the bag wasn't sealed and they both landed on the floor

    That happened to me once. I just picked them up and bought them anyway, but I do toast them. I'm still alive. :)

    I have several of these loaves in my freezer, really nice bread and even lower carb than lidl rolls (which I love too) Waitrose is the only stockist nearby, £1.59 a loaf.
