With Christmas Day now just days away, stock up on winter vegetables for 19p at Aldi and Lidl.
What’s the deal exactly?
Discount supermarkets Aldi and Lidl have both launched a Christmas offer, which sees them selling a range of winter vegetables for 19p a pack.
Included in the offer at Aldi are:
- Broccoli (360g)
- Brussels sprouts (500g)
- Carrots (1kg)
- Parsnips (600g)
Also included in its ‘super six’ offer are loose swedes and 2.5kg bags of Maris Piper potatoes, both priced at 28p each.
Moneywise has asked Aldi to confirm the original price of these items and we will update this news story if we get a response.
Lidl is offering the following discount veg for 19p a pack:
- Brussels sprouts (500g) – reduced from 65p
- Carrots (1kg) – reduced 44p
- Mini potatoes (1.5kg) – reduced from 89p
- Parsnips (500g) – reduced from 56p
Why should I care?
Consumers are expected to spend a record £20 billion on Christmas this year, according to Halifax, with the big Christmas food shop an integral part of that figure.
These offers can drastically reduce the cost of both your Christmas Day meal, and other meals during the festive period.
What’s the catch?
The discount veg offers are available until Wednesday 27 December at Lidl and Sunday 31 December at Aldi.
However, Aldi says this offer is “while stocks last”, so buy early to avoid disappointment.
What other options do I have?
If you don’t live close to an Aldi or Lidl, other supermarkets have also cut the cost of winter vegetables.
Elsewhere, Tesco is offering carrots, cauliflower, parsnips, potatoes, and sprouts for 29p – a saving of up to £1.06 per item.
Morrisons hasn’t joined in this price war so far, but Moneywise does like its large ‘wonky veg’ boxes of visually imperfect vegetables for £3. Boxes include carrots, onions (red or brown), potatoes and parsnips, as well as a minimum of three of the following products: cabbage, cauliflower, leeks, peppers and swede.
