You know the feeling. You’ve just got home from a long day at work and you really don’t want to be standing over the stove for hours. So, you call your old friend Dominos and next thing, there’s a piping hot, deliciously naughty pizza arriving at your front door. Great for convenience, but not so much for your waistline. If you’re time-poor and yet health conscious, Aldi has the perfect solution as it launches fresh healthy meal kits, designed to compete with those fresh meal delivery services you see promoted by reality stars on Instagram.
The meal kits mean that you and your partner, or flatmate, could eat a fresh healthy meal at a cost of £1.60 per person, per night. The four meal kits on offer are chicken tikka, chicken fajita, BBQ pork stir fry and beef stroganoff. The kits consist of marinated meat and pre-cut vegetables, designed to save you time when it comes to cooking a tasty, healthy meal during the week. The meat is sourced from British farms and Red Tractor approved, so you know that you’re getting the highest quality possible. A spokesperson for Aldi said that the Ready, Set, Cook meal kits are perfect for customers who want to eat healthily but don’t have the time to prepare a meal from scratch.
Aldi was announced to be the Best Supermarket of 2017 by the Loved By Parents awards this year, and it’s no surprise with all of the money-saving incentives that the supermarket has in place. Recently, the brand conducted a survey which found that food sold by airlines can cost up to 459% more than a sandwich from their stores, which start at 85p for cheese and onion or egg and cress, going up to £1.69 for a deep-filled sandwich like chicken and bacon. They found that sandwiches on some airlines can cost up to £4.75, so a round of sandwiches for a family of four could cost almost £20.
Another money-saving product that thrifty shoppers are going wild for is the £6.99 Lacura Exfoliating Mud Mask, which has taken inspiration from the cult brand GlamGlow and their £39 YouthMud treatment. It’s been essentially billed as a ‘facial in a jar’ as it reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and redness and has already sold out online.
With the kids having just finished for the summer holidays, the chances are that your mind is already on next year’s uniform. If so, you might want to consider Aldi. It is stocking its own uniform which has sparked a price war between various supermarkets. The Back to School package, consisting of polo shirts, a jumper, trousers or a skirt, costs just £3.75 and is in store whilst stocks last.
With such a vast range of affordable products on offer, there’s no doubt that Aldi’s world domination won’t slow down anytime soon.
