Cheapest supermarket to buy your Christmas dinner revealed by Which?

THE cheapest supermarket Christmas dinner has been revealed – and you can get it from Aldi.

Turkey and all the trimmings from all the major supermarkets have been put to the test to find the biggest bargain.

According to Which?, Aldi is offering the full Christmas dinner experience for just £28.17 – or £4.70 per person.

That covers a Turkey along with essential vegetables like roast potatoes, parsnips, carrots, cabbage and sprouts.

Also included in the total price is cranberry sauce and sage and onion stuffing, and then for afters a luxury Christmas pudding and mince pies.

All the food was own brand apart from Albert Bartlett Rooster potatoes.

But there were a further three stores which all came in under £30 for feeding a family of six for the big day – under a fiver each.

Asda's dinner line-up was £28.49 – just 32p more than Aldi's winning dishes.

Also just pennies more was Tesco's Christmas Day feast, coming in at £28.88, followed by fellow German discounter Lidl, with a £29.46 meal.

Eight supermarket were put through their paces in total and posh store Waitrose was the priciest at £43.52. That's over £15 more than Aldi.

The final three were Ocado, costing £38.28, Sainsbury's at £32.90 and Morrisons for £32.88.

There was no single item for the main meal that Aldi didn't have cheapest, or joint cheapest, apart from a cabbage.

Waitrose swooped in with the lowest price at 43p, compared to 49p at Aldi.

Meanwhile, Morrisons and ,Tesco has an £8 Xmas pud which was cheaper than Aldi's £9.99.

But it was Aldi which topped the Christmas dinner menu overall this year.

Ele Clark, Which? retail editor, said: “Many households will be feeling the pinch this Christmas due to pressures on the cost of living.

"It’s worth knowing that you can make significant savings depending on where you buy your festive food.

“While Aldi was the cheapest supermarket in our analysis, Asda, Tesco and Lidl were hot on its heels.

"Most people are likely to live reasonably close to a store where they could pick up their turkey and other festive essentials for under £30.” 

Meanwhile, if you're heading to the supermarket you'll need to follow new rules.

Aldi is testing out a new ‘Specialbuy’ trolley with a WINE RACK to help shoppers navigate the middle aisle.
