Belmont Cookies 'n' Cream Download Image


Working with the kids at home can be risky ‘biscuits’. Demonstrated perfectly by Deborah Haynes’ live interview this week on Sky News, which was interrupted by her cheeky, hungry son asking for two biscuits – a clip which has since gone viral on social media. 

With many parents undoubtedly experiencing similar situations since the beginning of lockdown, supermarket Aldi has handily put together a list of tasty biscuits from just 35p to keep on standby, so you can avoid any embarrassing video call blunders.  

Revealing in a Twitter post later that evening that Haynes did in fact give her son two digestive biscuits, it wouldn’t be right if the humble Belmont Milk Chocolate Digestives (42p, 300g) didn’t get a special shout out. Deliciously crunchy and slathered with creamy milk chocolate, this is guaranteed to keep the kiddies quiet whether you’re on national television or not. 

To keep them from cookies and ‘screamin’, try Aldi’s Belmont Cookies ‘n’ Cream Biscuits (35p, 154g), made with chocolate flavour sandwich biscuits and a scrumptiously sweet vanilla filling for ultimate distraction. 

Or, if your little one is a tough cookie to please, the Specially Selected Stem Ginger Cookies (£1.19, 200g) are bound to put a smile on their face. Packed with flavour and made with real ginger, opt for these and your tot is bound to stay silent. 

So there you have it, Aldi’s tasty strategy to survive working from home with your little one. What’s more, you can bag all of the above for a mere £1.96.

Notes to editors:

Aldi is Britain’s fifth largest supermarket with 880 stores and more than 34,000 employees.

Aldi is attracting hundreds of thousands of new customers every year with its range of exclusive brands, passing low operating costs on to customers in the form of low prices.

The supermarket believes in making every day amazing and that’s why every single day Aldi delivers on the best possible value for millions of families throughout the UK and Ireland across everything from award-winning fresh produce to world class gin.

Aldi won’t be beaten on price; consistently racks up award after award for quality; treats its suppliers with fairness and respect and recognises the responsibility of supporting valued institutions such as Team GB to demonstrate the importance of health and wellness. That’s Aldi. That’s everyday amazing. The reason they do this? Because Aldi believes that everyone should have access to fresh, healthy, affordable food…it’s a right, not a privilege.

 The company’s current achievements and initiatives include:

  • Aldi is the UK’s lowest priced supermarket. Research released by Which? showed that Aldi is 19% cheaper, on average, than the Big Four supermarkets. It tracked the price of more than a hundred items at the UK’s eight biggest supermarkets throughout March 2020.
  • Aldi has a five-year partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust – its fundraising target of £5m will go towards helping the trust to reach out to every young person with cancer in the UK. 
  • Aldi’s rates of pay are significantly higher than the Government’s National Living Wage and also above the Living Wage Foundation’s recommended national rates. Store Assistants receive a minimum hourly rate of £9.40 nationally and £10.90 in London. 
  • Aldi is the official supermarket partner of Team GB and ensures every member of the team has access to fresh healthy Aldi food via monthly shopping vouchers, and that 1.2 million 5-14 year olds will learn about the benefits of cooking fresh, healthy food via its Get Set to Eat Fresh education initiative. Aldi has been a partner since 2015 and has extended its commitment to the 2024 Olympic games in Paris.
  • In June 2019, for the sixth consecutive year, Aldi was ranked the best-performing supermarket for compliance with the Groceries Supply Code of Practice, underlining its commitment to maintaining fair, predictable and sustainable prices within its supply chain.
