Aldi Is Selling Stuffed Yorkshire Puddings As Part Of Its Christmas Menu

Aldi Is Selling Stuffed Yorkshire Puddings As Part Of Its Christmas Menu

There may be more than four months until Santa comes to town, but Aldi has already unveiled its Christmas menu and we can tell you now that your tastebuds are in for a treat this December.

Already set to be the star of the table, you'll be able to pimp up your Christmas dinner with loaded Yorkshire puddings which look as amazing as they sound. Individual Yorkies come stuffed with pork, sage and onion stuffing balls and are finished with a pig in a blanket. Surely these have been sent to us by actual Christmas angels.

For those looking for a fancier festive feast there's a specially selected salmon loin fillet on the menu - a cut so highly prized it was once a delicacy reserved for Russian tsars.

Also sure to impress is this gigantic chocolate bauble. Part of Aldi's Specially Selected range, the bauble is made from gingerbread-flavoured white chocolate and filled with a fruit and nut centre.

The season is also set to get even more merry with sloe gin mince tarts, while traditional tarts will also obviously still be on the menu.

Other desserts come in the form of a White Chocolate, Prosecco and Raspberry Truckle, as well as a red Leicester cheese combined with Bombay-spiced chutney and nigella seeds. Fancy!

There's also a bit of a Heston Blumenthal addition to trick your tastebuds. Yummy chocolates infused with festive flavours such as mulled wine, clementine, treacle tart, cinnamon crème brulee and Marc de Champagne come in the shape of Christmas puddings and brussel sprouts. We'll definitely be getting these out to pull us out of that post-dinner slump.

Perfect for little ones, there's a make-your-own gingerbread man dough set where kids and adults alike can carve and bake their own Christmas treats.

Back to the savoury, we're loving the sound of the bite-sized bacon treats that come stuffed with cheddar cheese and topped with raisins, and we obviously love a pig-in-blanket, so we'll be stocking up on the traditional chipolatas wrapped in bacon. We're not sure they'll top Aldi's 2018 offering though - a £3 foot-longer.

Unfortunately Aldi is yet to release the prices of the menu or the actual date these delicacies will hit stores, but we're 100 per cent confident they will be worth the wait.

Aldi isn't the first high-street supermarket spreading festive cheer this month: Asda is also getting shoppers excited by teasing us with the likes of elf-inspired ice cream which will see green raspberry-flavoured ice-cream swirled with white candy floss ice-cream and red raspberry compote.

They've also got an insane, chunky foot-long centerpiece made up of 12 pigs in blankets neatly placed on a top of pork, sage and onion stuffing. Just wow.

In fact, pigs in blankets seem to be the pièce de résistance, and Tesco is getting in on the action early too by teasing us with images of six sausages wrapped in bacon served on a British pork and Bramley apple stuffing ring that looks absolutely delicious.
