Aldi Christmas ‘treats’
IsThisIt2021 · 01/12/2021 20:07
Hi. I’m heading near to Aldi tomorrow and just wondering what Christmas treats you’ve seen/bought in store already this year that I could pick up to try? Don’t normally shop in Aldi so actually quite interested to see what they have!

Lots of lovely things- the nut brittles, chocolates and some great frozen bits. I got mulled wine chutney which has nearly all gone now. I didn’t fancy the espresso martini Wensleydale though!

Espresso martini Wensleydale?! I like cheese but that doesn’t sound appealing. I haven’t seen but brittles in years.

The salted caramel fudge is amazing

Stollen & florentines. I get them every year. This year I’m limiting myself to 1 pack each. Last year they did some apple stollen which was amazing.
I’m also a massive fan of their beef and horseradish crisps. They go so well with wine!

Someone else has told me the nougat bars are nice but I’ve never tried them.

They’ve got so many Christmas treats. Lovely buffet things and lots of sweet treats from Christmas puddings and mince pies to chocolate Santa’s etc. They’ve also got versions of the light up gins M&S have.

The hazelnut Florentines are very nice. Sometimes they have a deluxe version that's even nicer.

The florentines are very disappointing. Far too crunchy when they should be chewy

Aldi do a chocolate bar with salted pretzels in which is to die for

I’ve just munched my way through the spiced almond frangipanes, very tasty.

I love the florentines...Its the only thing on my list lies
Puffinhead · 01/12/2021 20:24
Also we buy the pandoro which is lovely too.
Gatekeeper · 01/12/2021 20:25
spiced almond frangipanes??? My God...where are they?
Louisa4987 · 01/12/2021 20:25
Cheese bites! Like cheese straws but in bite size pieces. I pretty much inhaled a whole pack and had to go back for more!

The cherry liqueur chocolates are very good, I may have been buying them since October!
GertrudePerkinsPaperyThing · 01/12/2021 20:26
Ah, I really need to make time to go to Aldi.

The marzipan bars with praline in the middle
The chocolate covered lebkuchen
Vapeyvapevape · 01/12/2021 20:30
Cheese and chive pretzels- I could eat my own body weight in them

Ooh there's a big Aldi opening near me next weekend. I can't wait, I feel like a kid waiting for Santa!!

Their chocolate truffles are good!
SomethingNastyInTheBallPool · 01/12/2021 20:56
I was about to say, the chocolate truffles - the ones coated in chocolate flakes. I like the white chocolate ones best.

Mini butter and marzipan stollen bites. So good and I hate marzipan but I can eat way too many of these.
TheWeeDonkey · 01/12/2021 21:14
The chocolate is really good there. I noticed the other day their fake Toblerone that tastes better than a Toblerone is in stock again so I must treat myself. They do a dairy free salted caramel with honeycomb and macadamia nuts that I am addicted to, shove a scoop on one of their Belgian Sugar Waffles OMFG... Its amazing.
Daisy829 · 01/12/2021 21:17
I need to find the cheese & chive pretzels. They sound good.

The caramel filled mini churros from the frozen party food range are lush. Not specifically Christmas related but the pots of garlic and herb dip in the chiller section is every bit as good as Dominoes.
