The Christmas Dinner Veg War Has Begun!

Which supermarket will have the cheapest Christmas dinner veg?
The Christmas Dinner Veg War Has Begun!

For the last couple of years the supermarkets have all tried to beat each other by slashing the price of Christmas dinner vegetables in the run up to Christmas. Last year prices dropped as low as 15 at Aldi and Lidl! Some large supermarkets overstocked so much that they were giving them away for free on Christmas Eve! We doubt they will make the same mistake again, but here are what the main supermarkets have as Christmas veg deals:

Aldi Super Six Veg 14p

Aldi* have won this year's Christmas dinner veg was, was their festive veggie Super Six* at just 14p each! This offer is available in stores from Thursday 17th December until Christmas Eve, and while stocks last.

  • Carrots 1kg was 41p now 14p
  • White potatoes 2kg was 79p now 14p
  • Parsnips 500g was 42p now 14p
  • Red/white cabbage was 45p now 14p

Marks & Spencer Christmas Dinner Veg 40p

Now Marks & Spencer* have joined in the Christmas veggie price war, with M&S Select Farms Brussels sprouts, potatoes, parsnips and carrots in store now for only 40p each! Offer is in store only, for a limited time, and while stocks last.

Morrisons Christmas Dinner Veg

Morrisons* also have some good prices on Christmas dinner veg, though not as low as Tesco or Aldi, with prices from 45p.

Now we all know that these cheap veggies are a loss leader to get us into the stores and then get us to spend a small fortune on mince pies, turkeys and xmas puddings, but it's also great news for cutting food costs in the run up to Christmas. Soups, stews and lots of roast dinners will be coming up in our house, for a fraction of the usual cost!
