·3-min read

With climate change a serious concern (not up for debate because... science!) one thing that experts say we can do to help is to eat less meat. 

Luckily Aldi has once again come to our rescue with a plant-based chicken nugget that even the kids will like – and they won't even know they're not eating chicken.

Parents across social media platforms have been raving about Aldi Plant Based Nuggets. And this seasonal product from the discount supermarket is back in stores as Tik-Tok influencer Emily Claire Webster shared with her 10,000 followers.

With over 2000 views already, fans of the popular product are just glad to see they're back.

"Just tried these and a big fan and my 6yr old daughter is the world's fussiest eater and loves them. Thanks Aldi," Aussie mum Vanessa wrote on the Aldi Lovers Australia Facebook page.


"The kiddies and I tried these tonight. Would say maybe an 8/10 probably as good as a plant-based nugget can get. The plant-based chicken filling was a bit weird of a texture... Like a soft & squishy feeling, kinda like a thick cooked paste (I don't know how else to describe it)," another mum added on the Aldi Mum's Facebook page. "Kids ate them, because you know, nuggets," she added.

At just $4.99 for around 15 nuggets (350g) they are an absolute bargain too.

Other fans were urging people who liked the product to let Aldi know so that they became a permanent item in-store.

That Vegan Dad Jack Rock also did a taste test of the nuggets on his YouTube channel. "These are by far, definitely the best vegan-friendly 'chicken' nuggets you can get!" he told his 1,670 subscribers. "It is unbelievable how delicious these are," he added.

"These are now my favourite nuggets, I love it more than the meat nuggets now!" one follower, Kelly said in reply to his review.

Even PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) approves of the vegan products that Aldi are producing, awarding them with a Top Grocer Award for their wide variety of vegan foods.

But whether you are vegan, vegetarian or just trying to cut back on the amount of meat in your diet for your health or the environment, you'd better hurry up and pick up a couple of packets as they are sure to fly off the shelves again.
