Aldi - Which? reveals best Christmas fizz and mince pies.

Which? reveals best Christmas fizz and mince pies.


Who'd have though that supermarket brands would have outperformed its expensive rivals!

Sparkling success:

All four of the champagnes awarded the Which? Best Buy cost under £20 and were ranked above well known labels Lanson, Mo√ęt & Chandon and Veuve Clicquot. Even the lowest scorer of the 11 champagnes on test, Aldi’s Veuve Monsigny Premier Cru (£15.99) scored a respectable 70%. 

I received a gorgeous bottle of Cremant Du Jura Sparkling Chardonnay to sample and I must admit it went down very nicely. In fact almost too nicely as I drank the whole bottle all by myself - oops. You'll be glad to know it wasn't all in one night though, I did enjoy just one glass at a time. It was really nice and very moreish. I'd definitely buy this one again. I find that most cheaper cava's can be very dry tasting but I was pleasantly surprised with this. It was lovely and for such a cheap price of just £6.99 a bottle. It's an amazing bargain. Definitely one to add to your Christmas shopping list. I know it's now on mine!


Mince pie favourites:

     Which? had an expert panel which blind tasted 29 pies on the day. Twelve were traditional style luxury mince pies, 17 were the different pies in the 11 packs of non-traditional pies and one was a homemade pie supplied by Patrick Moore. Aldi were amongst the top 12 scoring again for their delicious yet respectably priced Specially Selected Mince Pies.  They cost just £1.69 for a box of 6 which is great family value.I'm not a huge fan of mince pies but my mum loves them. When I was sent a box of these to sample last week I took them over to her to enjoy with a nice cup of tea. She's a bit of an expert at cake and pie tasting as she makes a lot her self this time of year. She gave Aldi's mince pies a great thumbs up. She loved the delicious filling and really enjoyed these little pastry pies. She said they were almost as good as her own lol

Here at Mummy Of 3 Diaries we really couldn't recommend Aldi enough, The prices are low and the quality is great. So whatever you're looking for this Christmas, why not try Aldi.
