ABS were doing them 3 for a tenner recently.
I'll take it that it's now lost it's popularity
Aldi are still doing them for 3.99. Picked up 3 bales this evening. For those of us who dont live in Donegal and have a lapsed B&Q Trade card!Aldi are selling BnM briquettes (not the smaller Estonian briquettes) for 3 euro 99 cents at the moment.
Quite a few people buying them up.
Hi Irishlinks,I buy in bulk - a pallet at a time - it works out at 2.90 each (128 in a pallet lasts a whole winter for us) - you need somewhere to put them - but it saves picking odd ones up every time you are at a garage (or forgetting too?) Check goldenpages for coal merchants in your area.
Sounds like bars of chocolate that keep getting smaller!Just back from Woodies, BNM briquettes are 5 for $20 slightly down from last year when they were 6 for $25.
However, the bale itself is slightly smaller when placed beside the BNM’s I have left from last year.
I’m guessing that as briquettes are compressed peat that maybe they might have expanded a bit over the past year, though I usually have some left from the previous year and never noticed a difference before.
Both batches have the BNM green strap and the BNM imprint.
Do briquettes expand over time ? or like a lot of other things are they getting slightly smaller each year ?
