Aldi Unveils New Christmas Desserts With A Ferrero Rocher-Inspired Dome
As part of the supermarket's Specially Selected range, the collection includes the long-awaited Ferrero Rocher-inspired Chocolate and Praline Dome - and it looks epic.
We first heard whisperings of the limited edition item back in August, but now the time has finally come, with the dome landing in stores yesterday.
Made by a French patisserie, it's filled with a decadent milk chocolate and hazelnut mousse, cocoa sponge and coated in a hard milk chocolate shell and flecked with slivers of crunchy hazelnut.
Priced at just £5.99, it even bagged a golden prize at the BBC Good Food Christmas Taste Test.
It's important to note that the dome isn't affiliated with actual Ferrero Rocher. A spokesperson from Ferrero said: "We would like to clarify that the Chocolate and Praline Dome by Aldi is not affiliated to the Ferrero Rocher brand in any way.
"Therefore, we would like to add that our consumers should not expect any similar experience to that of their beloved Ferrero Rocher".
The dome isn't the only mouthwatering festive treat hitting the Aldi shelves this week. The Specially Selected Artic Roulade is also available in stores now.
Made with slow baked meringue and filled with sweet cherry, cherry compote and Italian Amarena cherries, the indulgent hand rolled roulade is finished with an indulgent Belgian chocolate drizzle and dark chocolate pieces.
You can snap it up for £4.49.
In a couple of weeks, the supermarket will be releasing two more Christmas desserts. These include the award winning Specially Selected Damson Plum and Pink Gin Pudding, priced at £8.99.

It features layers of toffee sauce, custard and white chocolate mousse, topped with chocolate and butterscotch pieces, and it's priced at £5.99.
But the selection doesn't stop there - Aldi has launched a special vegan treat, too.
