Lidl sell smoked German cheese reduced from �2.99 to �0.99. However,
there was recently a food scare about smoked flavour. Should I eat it?

Yes, no reason not to. There are so many scares that people would be afraid
to live or even go out if they believed everything. Whatever next?
I will be going to buy some if it is reduced, I also like their potato
salad.
The German foods do seem to be of better quality. All we have in the UK now
is companies taking out salt saying it is better for us - what they really
mean is
that is saves them a fortune not adding it. All the other additives like
emulsifiers
should be removed so you can see the fat floating on the food you buy!

Rubbish. Estimated savings from taking out salt from a sandwich would amount
to �0.00000001. How do you think they get around throwing salt on the roads?
The salt added to food is to compete on the flavour, but at a cost in health
which companies brush under the carpet. Likewise with added sugar.

As a rule I never buy anything whose description contains the word
"flavour".

I'm yet to come across real "smoked" cheese rather than smoke "flavour"
cheese :(

I think then you probably don't buy food. I've come across curry-flavoured
pot noodles! Why don't they just use curry in the first place ffs?
