Aldi has unveiled a new range of indulgent desserts set to delight shoppers and finish festive dinners in style. Along with some returning favourites, including the Smash Dome Cake, shoppers can expect to find new delicate Ganache Pinecones, a fabulously chocolatey Semi-Freddo Igloo, a showstopping Ganache and even a vegan dessert! The new range will be available in stores from 6th November onwards.
Brand-new for 2023 is Aldi’s Double Chocolate Semi-Freddo Igloo (£6.99, 620g), a sweet extravaganza with a creamy semi-freddo mousse, filled with layers of chocolate and chewy meringue. Charmingly presented as an igloo, this frozen dessert is finished off with an adorable milk chocolate penguin friend. Available from 6th November.
Another showstopping centrepiece to finish off any Christmas feast is Aldi’s new Specially Selected Millionaire’s Filled Bauble (£7.99, 500g). This Belgian chocolate bauble shaped delight is filled with decadent brownie bites, biscuit crumb, white chocolate stars, chocolate mousse and a velvety salted caramel sauce. Available from 6th November.
For those after something a little more bitesize, the brand-new gooey Specially Selected Ganache Pinecones (£3.99, 200g) are devilishly moreish and available in two flavours. Shoppers can choose between milk chocolate and sea salt or blonde chocolate and caramel, both boasting a smooth ganache base with a delicious centre oozing with sauce, encased in a life-like pinecone finish, studded with delightful biscuit balls. Available from 8th December.
Brand new to shelves this festive season is the Specially Selected Showstopper Ganache (£6.99, 400g and 450g). Dessert lovers can choose between two decadent flavours, rich Belgian milk chocolate and hazelnut, or blonde and Belgian white chocolate, both filled with layers of creamy mousse, gooey ganache with crunchy biscuit balls. The white and blonde chocolate is presented in a row of adorably quaint festive cottages, doubling up as a decoration as well as a delicious treat! Available from 21st December.
Aldi has got a special treat for cheesecake lovers this year with its new Novelty Cheesecakes (£3.99, 450g). Available in two fun designs, a vanilla cheesecake with a chocolate reindeer on top and a chocolate cheesecake adorned with a white snowflake, they are the perfect choice for a post-Christmas dinner treat. Or for a slightly bigger centrepiece, shoppers can opt for the Specially Selected Billionaire’s Cheesecake (£8.99, 910g). A delicious digestive biscuit base topped with creamy cheesecake, caramel sauce, chocolate ganache and cocoa dusting. Finished with elegant milk chocolate shards. Both available from 19th December.
Also new for this year is Aldi’s Specially Selected Vegan Cookie Pot (£4.99, 465g) – the ultimate chocolatey vegan dessert to enjoy this Christmas. Available from 19th December.
The Novelty Macarons (£3.49, 6 pack) are back this Christmas, this time with an adorable new Elf character. These make-your-own almond-based treats come as a choice of Chocolate Reindeer or Vanilla Elf Macarons and are fun for all the family! Available from 8th December.
Back by popular demand and a bestseller from last year, the Specially Selected Panna Cotta Star (£8.99, 900g) will be back on shelves from 21st December. A refreshingly light raspberry jelly topped with a smooth and creamy Madagascan vanilla panna cotta made using British cream. Made extra tempting with its sweet raspberry coulis and a light sprinkling of glitter, this star-shaped dessert makes for a perfect dazzling centrepiece.
Also back by popular demand, Aldi’s Specially Selected Smash Dome Cake (£14.99, 1kg) is a cake lover’s dream with a showstopping twist! A layered chocolate cake is topped with a Swiss chocolate dome that once smashed will reveal luxurious chocolate ganache and indulgent sweet treats. Available from 10th December.
Nothing says tradition like Aldi’s Specially Selected Yule Log (£8.99, 825g). Hand-rolled with fresh, Belgian chocolate ganache, crisp chocolate shavings and glitter dust, this staple dessert is a must have for any festive dining table or Christmas party spread. Available from 21st December.
Aldi’s range of Christmas desserts will be on sale from 6th November.
Cheese lovers looking for a party centrepiece – or indeed a winter cake – need look no further as Aldi has launched a cake made out of a whopping 1kg of cheese.
The Cheese Truckle Tower, which is just £12.99, is available in stores nationwide from 8th December and consists of four layers of Aldi’s most delicious cheeses. The launch comes after Aldi sold record amounts of cheese last Christmas with more shoppers turning to cheese after a meal during the festive season.
Starting with a sensationally strong 15 Month Extra Mature Coastal Cheddar (400g) at the base, it is then piled with beautifully crumbly Aged Red Leicester (300g). A creamy Wensleydale and Sherry-Soaked Fruits (200g) sits atop that, before being crowned with mouth-watering Mature Coastal Cheddar and Caramelised Balsamic Onion (100g). Guests are sure to be impressed with this showstopping product!
Aldi’s Specially Selected Winter Chutneys (£1.29. 200g), available in two flavours – Spiced Apple & Pear and the new Fig & Balsamic, partner perfectly with this masterpiece. And Fletcher’s Fine Ruby Port (£7.69, 75cl) provides the perfect boozy pairing, with its notes of raisins, sultanas and chocolate-covered cherries emphasising the tower’s deliciously sweet, rich taste. Both are available in stores now.
Aldi’s Cheese Truckle Tower is available in store from 8th December.
