Might not have been the best year to ask this question! Normally.... The Range all the way, but not this year I fear, less nec and inflated prices being seen. Aldi or Lidl are usually worth a look for small selection boxes.

It's a shame as I'd airways get a Party Box from the range to accompany the stuff I get from specialists, or as part of a smaller display.

Lidl visage may well be one of the best value for money boxes this year considering all the price increases. Also morrisons if the same as last year will have some decent value boxes especially if nec hasn't been reduced. Welcome to the forum

Lidl's boxes are pretty decent, have fired both of them. Plenty of small fountains, but both have 2 very decent shot tubes in them. Otherwise, unless Tesco somehow pull out something stunning, it's not a great year for the supermarkets really

Morrisons boxes are the best supermarket boxes in my opinion in term of the quality as personally I think there fountains are bigger and last longer but it depends if they put there prices up

i’ve only ever had two boxes from morrison’s the olympian pack which was good value and the nitro box , both very good boxes some decent size pieces and some good duration so i’ve got to agree with you on that one

Can you def not get to a specialist that stocks kimbolton? For that budget, I'd get a gold box. Even more so if you've got a few small ones already; because you'll get a bit more variety (& 10x the quality). Some of the bigger boxes are similar items to the small, just loads of them.

Otherwise the BS party box is good. But could be very repetitive alongside other boxes. From the range.

Orr, if it were me looking at supermarkets, I'd buy a few of the 3 for 20 cakes (or a combo if you want small rockets) and a visage box from lidl and spend the change on some shot tubes from asda or similar

Thanks I will see if I can track down some kimbolton otherwise probably morrisons or the party box the only reason I was unsure was as its gone up to £45
