It’s time for the annual This is Money Christmas taste test – and our look at how the supermarket business is faring.
This year, the contenders are Sainsbury’s for the mass market, Waitrose for the upmarket, and Lidl for the discount challenger.
From mince pies, to sprouts and stilton to prosecco, which will come out on top across a range of Christmas food and who delivered the cheapest bill?
Simon Lambert and Lee Boyce take on Georgie Frost’s festive feast to find out in this week’s podcast and discuss whether the big supermarkets are doing better after some difficult years, if the rise of Aldi and Lidl will continue, and how Tesco and Sainsbury’s shares compare.
And mingled with the Christmas food is a look at the important money news of this week.
That includes whether higher inflation spells more rate rises, how the property market is suffering due to the reversal of the north south house price rise divide and the worst day ever to go shopping.
