Hoping someone can help! We normally have a 5 bird roast from Aldi at Christmas but I'm not sure if I can have it this year as I've recently become lactose intolerant (thanks to pregnancy!). Does anyone have one in their freezer that they could please check the ingredients for me to see if it contains milk? There's no ingredient list on their website! I'd go to Aldi to have a look but I'm struggling with my hormones st the moment and think I'll have a full blown meltdown in the shop if I find out I can't have it hmmblush

Would this sort of thing normally contain milk? I can't imagine how it would.

Ohh it's the stuffing that might contain milk or butter. I'd have through the same but after being made ill by a bag of crisps the other day I've become extra cautious!!

There is a worryingly long list of additives! mentions gluten but nothing about not suitable for lactose intolerance. And nothing obvious on ingredients list

P.s. i have cranberry stuffing one

5 birds?! hmm

I'm thinking chicken, duck, turkey and goose but can't fathom the 5th bird of Christmas

The fifth bird is pheasant according my my Aldi Christmas booklet.

I'm tempted to buy one this year but I'm torn between feeling intrigued and slightly nauseous at the thought of so many meats on one plate!

That seems like indigestion waiting to happen but I really want to give it a go!

We tried the cranberry one and it was lovely! My mum has one in the freezer waiting for Christmas!

Are you aware you can buy lactase tablets? I'm lactose intolerant but can eat dominoes and all sorts if I've had a couple tablets first.

Orcinus I've not heard of them, no! Where would I go to buy such a thing? Very new to the whole lactose intolerance thing - it suddenly reared its ugly head about a month ago. Hoping it's just a pregnancy thing and that it'll disappear once baby's arrived..!

Have no idea OP but without hijacking your thread I am curious to know from other posters if it's actually tasty! Will be very pregnant this xmas and cooking a leg of lamb and ham also so a ready to cook 5 bird roast sounds a lot easier than a big boney cumbersome turkey grin

Aw just realised that all the multi roasts seem to contain pork stuffing and dh doesn't eat pork sad Pity sad

Birdlet Tue 15-Nov-16 18:38:04

We've had one for the last few years Hugh and always really enjoyed it smile

Oh that sounds sooo good. How much are theygrin.

Birdlet Tue 15-Nov-16 20:19:57

Normally around £10 I think Pilko

I bought one the other day. I think it was about £9 and the beef Wellington was £10.
