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 19p at Aldi and 20p at Asda! 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: 15p / 19pAldi's festive veg Super Six special offer

Aldi* have launched their festive veggie Super Six*, and they have just dropped prices to match the Lidl offer so prices are now 15p / 19p per pack! This offer is available in stores from Monday 16th December until Christmas Eve.

  • Parsnips 500g 15p
  • Brussels Sprouts 500g 15p
  • Carrots 1kg 15p
  • Swede 19p
  • Red Cabbage 15p
  • White potatoes 2kg 19p

Lidl Pick Of The Week Veg 15p

Lidl Christmas dinner vegetables offer

Last year Lidl* beat all the supermarkets with their 19p Christmas dinner veg offer and this year they have done it again with 15p on selected Christmas dinner veggies*!

Tesco Festive Five Veg: 19p / 29p

Tesco* have just dropped the price of five festive veggies to just 19p or 29p per pack. The offer started on 18th December and runs until 26th December, and includes the following:

Asda Christmas Dinner Veg

Asda* were the cheapest of the big four supermarkets last year, and once again they have Christmas veg*essentials like potatoes, carrots, parsnips and sprouts down to just 20p a pack.

Sainsbury's Christmas Dinner Veg

It looks like Sainsbury's* aren't joining in with the big Christmas veggie war this year, as prices remain at their usual level.

Morrisons Christmas Dinner Veg

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

  • Morrisons Brussels Sprouts 500g 40p
  • Morrisons Parsnips 500g 40p
  • Morrisons Maris Piper Potatoes 2.5kg 50p

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!
