Aldi's luxe Christmas food range is back with some new surprises: 'So delicious'

Everyone wants to add a bit of luxury to their festive feasts, which is why Aldi's premium Curated Collection food range was such a hit last year.

Whether they were gifts for foodie friends or graced the table when guests came over, some of the most desirable products in the range quickly became hard to find last Christmas.

So it's little wonder that Aldi has not only brought the range back but also expanded it.

The opulent festive treats and gifts not only come in a wide range of flavours and styles but are affordable luxuries, starting from as little as $3.99.

Back this year are luxurious fruit cakes ($4.49 for the small and $11.29 large) alongside an extraordinary 12-month aged pudding ($14.99).

While Aldi's Christmas Puddings and Fruit Mince Pies ($6.99) were rated number one in the Canstar Most Satisfied Customer Awards 2021, it's the shoppers whose opinions really count.

"Bought a box of these today at Aldi," one happy customer wrote about the Curated Collection fruit mince pies. "Made in the UK and infused with cognac & brandy. My only complaint is I should have bought 2 boxes. "Very nice indeed. As good as me dear old mum used to make. Well... almost," she added.

Another raved about the Christmas cake. "I can attest that the fruit cake is so delicious! Almost like how my mum makes, and it takes her all year to make it!"

"The packaging looks great too!! Perfect for hamper gifts!" one person shared to an Aldi fans Facebook group.


For those who love sweet treats, there is a huge range of flavours and styles to choose from.
