danish supermarkets can be suprisingly cheap, when compared to the prices you normally find here.
Supermarket chains like Netto,Fakta,Aldi etc can save you a lot of money when buying food and drinks.
Prices can seem high in Denmark at first, but this is mainly when you are getting things served by a waiter,so if you head to the supermarket for a bit of food then you can save a lot of money compared to buying it at a restaurant.
What to buy: Food and drink.
If you're staying in self-catering accomodation (or living here long-term!), you'll need to visit a supermarket at some point! Some hints - Aldi and Lidl are cheaper, but the quality is relative to the price; Netto is not quite so cheap, but not bad, and the quality and choice is slightly better; Irma is more expensive, but if you're looking for organic and/or vegetarian food, this is your best bet; Fotex tends to be larger, with much greater choice, and prices somewhere between Netto and Irma. There's also Rema 1000 which seems cheapish too, and don't forget small independant shops, often run by immigrants where you can find items not always stocked in supermarkets, and get cheaper veg.
7/11 is good for emergencies (most supermarkets are closed on Sundays; 7/11 is at least open on Sunday mornings!), but I wouldn't try to do a week's shop there!
Sadly we did come to the conclusion that supermarkets in Sweden were much much better!
What to buy:
After sampling the various products of Carlsberg, I settledon the rather remarkable 'Jacobson Dark Lager', which weighs in at an impressive 5.8%. Apparantly the brewery tries to create one of it's oldest recipies (from 1854) in this product with the aid of Munich salt and english hops.
By god, it works. Similar to a German Dunkles beer, it hits the spot. Well it hit my spot at least after a tour of the Carlsberg brewery.
