Aldi's Christmas lobster tails are back - but you'll have to be quick

It's time to start planning your Chrissy feast.

Aussies love their seafood at Christmas time, and Aldi's luxury seafood specials fly off the shelves every year as families clear their freezers to make room for the gourmet entertaining centrepieces.

Mark in the calendar Wednesday, 25 October, as the supermarket is releasing its frozen festive seafood range for those super-organised hosts who want to make sure they have the first choice of what's on offer.

Top of the list for families around the country this year will no doubt be the lobster tails, tiger prawns and scallops, so let's take a closer look at what Aldi is serving up.
