Save money at Aldi this Christmas

Aldi rather kindly sent me some Christmas goodies to try, in the ‘season of good will’ I sent some to friends to try out for me. Oh I am not that good (I am really!) they have gluten in and Christmas pudding and mince pies don’t go down well here!!!

As we are all going to be buying our Christmas food this week, it is really worth taking a look at Aldi because who can’t afford not to save money. As I have said before I love good food and Aldi has lots of good food to offer. So if you want to save a bit of money this Christmas have a little look at what Aldi has to offer. With the figures showing that the average Christmas shop this year will be up by a staggering 28% it really is worth looking to save money without comprising on quality.

The goodies we were sent all came up to the mark. Of course we had some goodies we could try,  my all time favourite (shhh great stocking filler!) is this cute chocolate deer just 99p with sweet deer tag made of metal. The children said the chocolate was scrumptious!!! Oscar immediately asked for more of the mini panettone and said it was delicious.

The Luxury Christmas pudding had the massive thumbs up and a comment from my taster who thought it was great and was light not stodgy, with a lovely Christmas aroma. Easily cooked in microwave and thought it was excellent value for money at just £3.49 (454g)

Aldi’s luxury mince pies £1.69 for a pack of 6, beat Morrisons, Marks and Spencer, Fortnum and Mason, Mr Kipling, Harrods and Lidl in Which? Magazine taste test. My lovely testers said they were really good, gorgeous filling and lovely buttery pastry. Aldi’s Phillppe Michel Cremant du Jura at £6.99 came second overall in Which? magazine taste test on sparkling wines beating Jacob’s creek, Sainsbury’s, Marks and Spencer and Tesco Finest.

There you go a few reasons to check out Aldi for your Christmas and New Year shopping.

I reviewed Aldi cheese here and Chutney’s here always good for Christmas too.

    Yummy stuff! I’ve made my own mince pies using Aldi mincemeat and it’s the nicest I’ve used. Also great for savoury nibbles & cheese.
    Happy Christmas x x
