Easter Lunch For £3.80pp At Aldi

Easter Lunch For £3.80pp At Aldi
23 March 2016

Bought all the essentials for your Easter lunch yet? If not, you might want to pop along to your nearest branch of Aldi, cos the cut-price store has today announced that it's selling everything you need for an Easter Sunday lunch, for the bargain price of just £3.80 per head.

Yep, you read that right. For just £3.80 per person - less than the price of a single luxury Easter egg from the average UK supermarket - you'll be able to feed a family of four an Easter feast.

Here's what you'll get for your money:

Whole Leg of Fresh British Lamb (£3.79 per kilogram)
Maris Piper potatoes (£1.89, 2.5kg)
Garden peas (69p, 907g)
Fresh carrots (45p, 1kg)
Bramwell's Mint Sauce (39p, 180g),
New Zealand Pinot Noir (£6.99, 75cl)
Specially Selected Hot Cross Buns (99p, 4 pack)

Tony Baines, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi, said: "We are proud that for the cost of an egg in other supermarkets, you can feed a family of four with delicious, quality British products, showing once again we are the supermarket that won't be beaten on quality or price."

But here's the bizarre bit - the supermarket has commissioned a life-sized edible chocolate dining table - complete with a lamb roast dinner and all the trimmings - to mark the deal.

Master chocolatier, Jen Lindsey-Clark, spent three weeks creating Aldi's 'Chocolate Roast' which has been made from a whopping 50 kilograms of melted Aldi Moser Roth Premium Easter Egg (£2.99, 185/195g). The table weighs an incredible 50 kilograms and measures 1.3 metres in length.

Jen said: "Aldi certainly set us a challenge with this very quirky commission. It has been great fun moulding and carving all of the classic Easter roast features. I'd say the trickiest item was the Ashfield Farm British leg of lamb which took four days, four moulds and 2 kilos of chocolate to complete.

Earlier this month, Aldi won Good Housekeeping's price comparison for the cheapest Easter supermarket shopping basket beating nine other supermarkets including Morrisons, Asda, Lidl and Iceland.

Now I don't know about you but this story left me longing for a lifesize Easter dining table to chomp my way through - never mind the actual Easter feast deal!

But tell us, would you be tempted with a pennywise Easter lunch like this offering from Aldi? Will you be hot-footing it to Aldi to bag your bargain for Easter Sunday, or do you push the boat out and forget about the bargain-hunting when it comes to special occasions like Easter?
