For the fifteenth month in a row, Aldi has been officially named the cheapest supermarket in the UK.
As families face the added expense of getting children ready to go back to school or university, all whilst trying to keep household costs down, Aldi shoppers can be confident they’re getting the highest quality products at the best possible prices – month in, month out.
Consumer group, Which? conducted its monthly Cheapest Supermarket price comparison, looking at the cost of a basket of items, including groceries and household essentials.
The latest research shows that in August Aldi was a huge £14.30 cheaper than the most expensive supermarket, Waitrose, for an equivalent basket of items.
Which? also revealed Aldi to be £8.79 cheaper than Tesco and £10.16 cheaper than Morrisons per basket.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, said: “As summer draws to a close and families begin preparing to go back to school or university, August and September can represent financially challenging months for many. However, with fifteen consecutive months as the UK’s cheapest supermarket, families can rest assured that they can rely on us for great quality products at the lowest possible prices, and that we’ll continue to support our customers in these testing times.”
The news comes as students up and down the country prepare to fly the nest. As the cost of kitting out new digs can quickly add up, Aldi has launched a must-have range of student essentials featuring everything from bedding and décor to pots, pans, and air fryers – with prices starting from as little as £1.99. Available in stores now, shoppers will need to hurry as with all Specialbuys once they’re gone, they’re gone!
Last night The Great British Bake Off featured caterpillar cakes in Party Week of the popular baking show. The technical challenge saw the quarter finalists take on the task of making a caterpillar cake.
The UK’s favourite supermarket couldn’t resist responding to the episode with a series of social posts, including an open letter to Channel 4, which shoppers have found hilarious. It reads:
“To Channel 4, We are intellectual caterpillar counsel to Aldi UK. We write to you regarding Channel 4’s violation of Cuthbert’s rights. Aldi has always been a big fan of the Great British Bake Off, and we’ve long craved a Hollywood handshake… But tonight’s episode really took the biscuit.”
