Are they any good and which should I buy, the ones in the red wrapper or the ones in the box?

Anyone? Someone must have braved one!

We had the mini ones last year (the specially selected, 4 in a box) - they were very nice
Might get the amaretto in the middle one this year

I have one every year, it's the boxed luxury one topped with cherries. It's the best ever, basically made of fruit and held together with booze - exactly how I like it! Then we'll have one on boxing day at my dads too.
You don't have to brave Aldi's specially selected, it's uniformly great.

I had the luxury one for about £5 last year and it was very nice.

This year I am having the £10 champagne one because it looks bloody gorgeous and I do love Christmas pudding.

The normal red one is good enough for us but then I don't really like alcohol in food!

We had a boxed one last year and it was delicious! Will be getting one this year too.

I'll have a look at them tomorrow, I bought Heston's last year, I can't have the same again.

That's the one Megan, the champagne one is bloody lovely!

I bought the luxury one last year, the one covered in orange slices, because it won all sorts of taste tests in various magazines.

It didn't get eaten, got put at the top of a cupboard and forgotten about (domestic goddess, me blush )I found it a couple of days ago, it went out of date in July, and put it on the worktop near the door ready to go in the bin.

Dh saw it, and is now working his way through it, declaring it to be "bloody lovely"!!!!

we've been having Aldi Christmas puddings for years, used to seek them put specifically before Aldi became mainstream. One of my close family is a "dry" alcoholic and won't eat food with booze in. The Aldi puds without alcohol are delicious, far nicer than any alternatives and easier than making my own.
