Christmas with ALDI

    Aldi have some great treats for all the family this Christmas !

We was sent some lovely Christmas treats to try from the lovely people at Aldi, why not check out the website here for many more of there great offers.

Below are a few of the delicious treats we received.

Stollen Bites
These delicious Stollen bites are made with juicy raisins, almonds, citrus peel, hazelnuts with a delicious marzipan centre. Myself and my 8 year old son Callum absolutely loved these, the flavour remind me some much like cherry bake wells cakes our favourite. They were delicious, moist and packed with fruity flavour. The icing sugar that is sprinkled over the top of the Stollen bites adds extra flavour. We will definitely be buying these this Christmas, excellent treat with a class of wine or cup of tea if you prefer.
Stollen bites- £1.59 per 350g pack 

Specially Selected Orange Topped Christmas Pudding
 Aldi's specially selected orange topped Christmas pudding is made with, sultanas, whole cherries, crunchy almonds and pecans and laced with Spanish Sherry, Cognac and rum and topped with a ring of whole glace of orange slices. We served our Christmas pudding with some custard, it was so delicious and moist. There were lost of different flavours and textures. My favourite part was the yummy flavours of fruits and the glace of oranges added colour and mouth watering flavours.

Specially Selected Luxury Mince Pies

Aldi's specially selected mince pies are just gorgeous, a few years a go you would never of caught me tucking in to a mince pie I loved apples pies, but one day I thought I saw a delicious looking mince pie and thought ill have a little try and omg it was the best mince pie I had ever tasted, since that day if I ever get near a mince pie its all mine I'm not sharing. I'm not a massive fan of mince pies and love trying any one I can get my hands on, so when Aldi asked if I would like to try there Specially selected mince pies I jumped in for a chance. I must say they are so yummy I didn't want to share the pack but I had to. The all butter pastry was delicious lovely and crumbly not dry like some mince pies i have tried, is was also packed with luxury mince which I thought was gorgeous soaked in the finest French brandy. I must admit I tucked into the mince pies before even reading the box and didn't know they contained brandy, I cant wait to buy more of these for Christmas.
Specially Selected Luxury Mince Pies- Contain 6 mince pies for as little as £1.69

Amador Cava Brut

Aldi's Amador Cava Brut is delicious with fine and persistent bubbles with citrus and green apple aromas. It's elegant and balanced there is a purity of fruit and a refreshing acidity in this impressive Cava. Cava is made using the full traditional method (i.e. the same way as Champagne), and the wines must spend a minimum of nine months in bottle before disgorgement.
Amador Cava is great for parties and special occasions it's Ideal as an appetiser or to accompany fish and savoury pastries. Its complexity also allows it to be enjoyed with pasta or white meat dishes.
I'm not a big fan of Alcohol but i must admit i finished this whole bottle, over two nights and i will definitely be buying some to have over the Christmas and New year.
Originally from Spain and in Aldi supermarkets at a great price of £4.49.

Specially Selected Irish Cream

If you love baileys you will love Aldi's Specially selected Irish cream, to me it tasted just like the Original named brand the only difference is the price, you will save money buying Aldi's Bally Castle brand at the price of just £5.99. Try it for your self you wont know the difference.
