It’s official – we are 100% ready to start getting riled up for Christmas. And it’s no wonder with some of the supermarkets starting to showcase what we’ll be getting stuck into this festive season.
One such supermarket is Aldi, who has actually been crowned Christmas Retailer Of Year at the Quality Food and Drink Awards for the second year in a row.
So, we’re guessing you’re going to want to know about a few of the stand-out Christmas products from Aldi this year, right?
Let’s start with the cutest little pigs in blankets we’ve ever seen in our lives (and trust us – we’ve seen a few in our time. New for 2021, Aldi is selling Specially Selected Pigs In Beds (£3.99). These are an adorable twist on the Christmas classic, and are made up of a British pork, apple and honey sausage meat ‘bed’ with cocktail sausage ‘pigs’ all tucked up in oak smoked bacon ‘blankets’ with cranberry ‘pillows’.
Now, as far as desserts go, we think you’re going to be well into this white chocolate Christmas tree. Aldi’s Specially Selected Raspberry and White Christmas Tree (£7.99), named best Centrepiece Dessert. The white chocolate and vanilla mousse Christmas tree serves six and is filled with layers of sponge cake, topped with raspberry inclusions, a praline feuillantine and raspberry crumb decorations. Erm, YUM!
Plus, Aldi’s Honeycomb Cracker Cake (£5.49) is one hell of a showstopper too. It combines luxurious, moist and golden Belgian chocolate sponge, with a sticky Belgian chocolate sauce and edible gold stars. Not forgetting a hidden golden honeycomb centre.
Hurry up Christmas!?
