From lobster claws to gin-infused mincemeat pies to a vegan-friendly no turkey roast and their new Icy Blueberry Gin Liqueur, we’ve had a look at what Aldi have in store for Christmas this year.
Icy Blueberry Gin Liqueur (£9.99) from the retailer’s new Infusionist range. A frosty twist on a fruity liqueur, the sweet tastes of juicy blueberry work perfectly with a light tonic.
Aldi’s Specially Selected Lobster Tails (£4.99/100g) are available both fresh and frozen. The chilled lobster tails come with Thermidor butter or wild garlic & prosecco butter – they are quick and easy to prepare with an oven-ready tray. Available in-store 21st December.

Start the day as you mean to go on with a sumptuous hollandaise-smothered eggs benedict with smoked salmon, and the best bit is that it couldn’t be easier! Aldi’s Specially Selected Salmon Eggs Royale Kit (£4.99) includes a pack of luxurious Scottish smoked salmon, four pre-poached free-range eggs, four breakfast blinis and a sachet of hollandaise sauce.
Champagne would be the ultimate drinks match with these breakfasts – try Aldi’s award-winning Veuve Monsigny Champagne (£12.99) produced by the consistently excellent house of Philizot & Fils, exclusively for Aldi. According to independent wine critic and TV personality, Jilly Goolden, Aldi’s Veuve Monsigny champagne is worth double (£25) its £12.99 price tag, offering staggering quality for such a reasonable price. Its tart apple and citrus are great at cutting through the richness of the smoked salmon. And since its breakfast, a little glug of freshly squeezed orange juice couldn’t hurt.
Aldi’s Specially Selected British Free-Range Turkey Parcel (£24.99/1.45kg). The parcel is made with free-range turkey and hand-prepared, stuffed with a festive British Red Tractor pork, bacon and cranberry stuffing, which also happens to be gluten-free! The parcel is topped with rashers of smoked bacon.
No Turkey Roast (350g, £2.99), a festive, taste sensation of cranberry, apricot and pumpkin seed stuffing, wrapped in a soya and tofu coating.
