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!

Sloe gin mince pies

They’re delicious - hence the empty packet! In the Christmas food aisle.

Sorry my mistake, they were Asda!!

Their dupe of Hotel Chocolat are lovely

They have gluten free sponge puddings. Chocolate or syrup. To get a choice in GF world is immense 😂. Plus the chocoer hazelnut chocolate that I can have.

The fig candle and matching diffuser sticks are gorgeous.
The camembert last year was disgusting, won't be buying that again this year.

We get a Pandoro every year. Looks lovely if you cut it like a star and cover it in some icing sugar. And for £3.99!!
Also agree with the Christmas shaped pretzels

Thank you all, some fantastic ideas here and I’ll defo be on the look out tomorrow for some of them.
@Puffinhead that made me laugh it starts with an A though!

The Christmas pâtés in reusable Kilner jars, especially the smoked salmon and the chicken liver.
Whole Bries for baking or cheeseboard.

The dark chocolate truffles - we use these to fill our own advent calendar each year. I've also heard either Aldi or Lidl have chocolate bars with golden tickets in where you can win £10k. Sounds like a perfect stocking filler...

dairy free salted caramel with honeycomb and macadamia nuts

I second the cherry liqueur chocolates and the Florentines.
The Turkish delight is also very good.
userxx · 02/12/2021 14:39
The chilli jam is delish, would go beautifully on a turkey sandwich.
The baking camembert's are also really good.

Cant remember if it was Aldi or Lidl but one of them had white mulled wine and it was lovely!
DentalWorries · 02/12/2021 15:46
Does anyone have photos of these suggestions so I know what to look out for?
This isn’t particularly festive but the frozen halloumi fries are incredible. I’ve been known to cook the whole box and eat them dipped in sweet chilli sauce

The fake Pringles are better than the real thing.
The tubs of mini cakes are good especially the Blondie Brownies.
Their free range chickens are very nice for anyone cooking for a small family

I don’t think anyone’s mentioned the ALDI Champagne yet. Pretty good…a couple of years ago it was 9.99 a bottle, but now 13.99. Still worth it, though!
And definitely the mini stollen…And the panettone.

I just bought an Aldi hot chocolate melting snowman. It's filled with chocolate drops and marshmallows and you put it into a mug of hot milk and watch it melt into a delicious drink (apparently - I haven't tried it yet). I've also bought a couple of mini Christmas gift cakes for stocking fillers for people on their own.

The blonde chocolate honeycomb is amazing!

I went yesterday because of this thread and was disappointed, sorry guys 🙈
mnahmnah · 04/12/2021 18:51
I have to say, their day to day food in the whole isn’t great. Fruit and veg not good at all. I certainly can’t do my whole weekly shop there. But there are certain things that are nice and worth popping for
