Lidl do a lot of things useful for low carb - the notable exception being sugar free jelly - though these days I find them too sweet and have taken to using one sachet of the jelly and some 'real' gelatine bought in bulk.
I have been able to get 95 percent cocoa chocolate at my branch from time to time.
We get milk delivered so I have been able to limit shopping trips, but it is noticeable that things are not always available in these strange times.

@Drummer My local Lidl have started doing the sugar free jelly, so keep your eyes open next time you are in. I also find it a bit sweet but when combined with black currants. redcurrants, raspberries and blackberries (ie their frozen fruit mix) it works great as they are quite tart. I use them to make a low carb trifle and my partner also really enjoys it. I need to look into getting milk delivered as there is a local guy doing it, but the people in the local shop are lovely so I like to give them business too for the everyday essentials that you quickly run out of.

Maybe the jelly is one of the things managers decide upon, or the size of the store dictates. At my local store the aisles have been made wider by removing one line of cabinets and there is a one way system imposed by the way the remaining ones have been shuffled up and down the shop.
