With Christmas fast approaching many organised Aussies have already stocked their fridge, freezer and pantry with all the necessary goodies.

Not only is there the scrumptious Christmas day menu to cater for but also snacks and seasonal treats to make sure the run-up and post-Christmas period are just as special as the big day itself.

From goose fat potatoes to a Christmas boneless turkey roll, these seasoned shoppers have been loud and proud about their favourite Aldi cult buys.

If you haven't heard about the fervour around these yet you must live under a foodie shopping rock.

The $3.99 Specially Selected Goose Fat Crispy Roasting Potatoes are so popular they regularly sell out with some customers buying multiple packets at a time to ensure that they don't run out.

"We LOVE them…crispy on the outside & creamy on the inside," one mum confessed. "I have 8 bags in the freezer!!!"

They are a Special Buy for the Christmas season though Aldi often makes popular Special Buy products a regular line if there is enough demand.

"OMG how good are the mini Dutch pancakes," one mum said on one post. "40 seconds in the microwave."

"Aldi for the win again," another Facebook fan added.

Garlic Dip, $2.79

This dip is not just a snacking accompaniment - many fans use it as a base for all sorts of dishes but particularly popular is as a cheats hack for garlic pizza.

"I’ve seen so many people commenting about the garlic dip, so thought I’d try it tonight for a garlic pizza and OMG, it was delicious," one mum wrote.

"Jumped on the garlic dip bandwagon! OMG! I can never eat anything else with my pizza ever again!" another agreed.

"The whole cheesy garlic pizza trend might cause Aldi to run out of stock of garlic dip," one fan predicted!

So run, don't walk to Aldi if this dip is on your Christmas menu list.

If you have a big family coming for Christmas then Aldi's 500g tiramisu can feed them all.

"The huge chilled tiramisu is a must if you have enough mouths to share it, as it has a short life once opened, but is delicious," one mum suggested.

"If you are in a state that sells alcohol, I also recommend the Salted Caramel flavoured O’Donnell’s country cream that came out recently," she added helpfully.

Spinach and feta gozleme, $4.49

Aldi Mums know not everything is about Christmas day itself and some shared the snacks and light meals that kept their loved ones happy over the holiday period.

One that many agreed on is Aldi's range of Turkish-style gozleme for a quick lunch or afternoon tea snack.

"The spinach and cheese gozleme is delish. I just put it in the microwave to defrost then light fry or put it in a sandwich press. Drizzle with fresh lemon juice," one of the Facebook group members wrote.
