    Does it really only contain 5 slices per loaf? £2.49 for 5 slices? Or am I reading it wrong?

    I read it at five slices as well, 250 gram loaf, 50 grams per slice.

    I thought Herman Brot was expensive per slice... :D

    Not sure. I didn’t order it, just saw it in passing.

    I did order the Burgen loaf. Lots of core stuff including 2 x 1kg buckets of Greek yoghourt.

    Ocado is a bit more pricey. But it will help free up my day and reduce my fuel bills. I passed on that bread but noted it’s presence.

    I am going to give it a shot *. I am tired of running around with a shopping trolley. :D

    * Not the bread, the service.

    I do not mind shopping in store, but I do miss all of the girlies that work in the pharmacy as I get my medication delivered now as well.

    Ever since I tore the cartilage in my left knee I have not liked hobbling around waiting for the mongrel to give way on me, so that's I went to online shopping.

    Yes Carbzone's low on both carbs and slices. Ocado also sell Livlife which has more slices and is also much cheaper, but to my mind its texture's a bit like chewing rubber bands though it tastes OK! :wacky: I sometimes buy it when I'm not in a fit state to make my own low carb stuff.

    ETA Watch too for flash sales at half prices and regular monthly discounts

    That’s expensive. Low carb bread will possibly be one of the most profitable products around as it gains popularity. Generally, bread is the last thing anyone wants to give up, and I imagine many low carbers are willing to pay a lot in order to get it. Certainly very few will make their own, and even fewer will abstain completely.

    My gut feel is more will abstain than make their own. LC bread seems to be a challenge get in terms of comparability.

    Nice tip. I might give it a try. It might not be so bad plastered with butter and with a slice of cheese on top. :D

    Edit : Later. LOL. All done and added to the order. All from the comfort of my bed on a Saturday morning. :D

    I am not sure I have seen that. I am in Morrisons quite a bit, but it is a smaller branch. I will look out for that. Thanks.

    Just been looking through the Ocado website with Mrs Listlad. She is comfortable with using them.

    We also noticed a vast range of supplements on offer in the Supplements section - this was largely of note because the supplier of many of this products for Ocado are in our region and not because we plan to put in stacks of orders for such products except flax seed maybe.

    I noticed this outfit started up in 2010 but I had effectively left the country between 2010 and 2017 so had never heard of them till recently.

    Ocado will be delivering M&S foods when their contract with Waitrose ends next year.
