Make January a 'super-food' month with Aldi
03 Jan 2017


Embarking on a health kick needn’t break the bank and by shopping at Aldi customers can make incredible savings across a wide range of fresh and nutritious produce, throughout the year.  Aldi’s iconic Super 6 offers shoppers a saving of up to 65% on selected lines* and there are further savings to be made on a selection of super-food favourites including A-list celeb favourite, Coconut Oil.

Discount supermarket Aldi makes it even easier to enjoy a colourful veggie drawer all year round and from Monday 2nd January, as part of Aldi’s Super 6, customers can enjoy Mango (each), Unwashed Spinach (450g), Pineapple (each) and Royal Gala Apples (min 5) for just 59p, and Curly Kale (200g) and Kiwi (6 pack) for 49p.

To help give your pantry a superfood punch, Aldi is introducing Lift Matcha Green Tea Powder (£4.99, 15 sachets). The traditional Japanese tea is brimming with antioxidants and has risen to “it” food status for its natural properties.  It is the perfect substitute for a morning brew, and at £7.01 cheaper** than Teapig’s Matcha Single Serve Sachets (£12.00, 14x1g) you’ll be sticking to your spend less, save more resolution, too!

Making simple switches to cooking habits can also help to boost healthy eating in 2017 and fulfil so many ‘New Year, New You’ resolutions for Brits up and down the country, so why not try using Aldi’s Coco Loco Coconut Oil (£2.49, 300ml) in place of regular oil?  And with Aldi, shoppers can save 77p per 100g compared to Waitrose**, a saving worth jumping up and down about!  

But, don’t just turn to the humble coconut for oil, Aldi’s Coco Loco Coconut Water (£1.79, 1L, 66620) is not just the perfect base for a smoothie, it also has excellent hydrating qualities and is packed with essential minerals and nutrients which will keep you feeling great throughout 2017.

Tony Baines, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi, said: “We offer our customers high quality and amazing value products every day of the year and January is no exception. To kick-start 2017, we will be inspiring customers with a wide range of fresh, nutrient boosting Super 6 deals and incredible savings across our entire range, including products like Matcha Tea and Coconut Oil that many other retailers charge a premium for. We look forward to helping our customers revolutionise their resolutions in 2017!”
