actually the Aldi own brand   Beautifully Butterly   spread  stuff at 85p a tub is quite delicious on their Aldi own .......... honey infused, sliced 800gm loaf at maybe £1.19 a loaf ......  I have this with my breakfast every morning  BUT yes, the other 'arf has Lurpak too when she's feeling " rich " 

I refuse to buy the stuff now !   ( that could be me in the video too ) :whistling:

An interesting coincidence Steve - 1 litre of petrol weighs approx 750 grams and costs £2 which we all think is scandalous 🤯. Yet the £7.30 lurpak is in fact for a 750 gram tub 🤔, so my question is are the owners of lurpak taking petrol as a guide to what they get away with 😎

Perhaps they should join up with DFS and offer 4 years interest free credit and pay nothing for the first year. 

They could also rebrand slightly and call it “Lurpak spread the cost”

A little known fact - I met Noel Edmonds at the Gunnar Nilsson Memorial Trophy at Donington Park in June 1979. I did have his autographed photo but in the intervening 43 years, it appears to have gone walkies.

Cannot recall seeing such a large tub of butter on the shelves, so when you look at the normal sizes the Lurpack seems to be about the same price as the others (more or less)

Clever marketing ploy by someone ?

Typically they started out at 250, then 500 then 1kg. 750 was introduced to make a big tub look more of a bargain - so yes.

That's a pretty tenuous thread James. 😊, connecting youthful adulation and swooning with the price of fuel, Lurpack or fish 🐟😱

    • All-new Lexus RX: luxury expressed in interior design simplicity
      Lavish details and flourishes are not necessarily the best way to express luxury. A “less is more” approach with design simplicity can be a much more effective way to communicate high quality, as witnessed in the interior of the all-new Lexus RX

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
