Stop the presses and loosen your trousers — Lidl is bringing out salted caramel, banoffee, and gingerbread spreads in time for Christmas. While we’re used to finding satsumas (or lumps of coal if we’ve been naughty) in our stockings, imagine waking up on December 25 to find a jar of seasonal spread?
As the various supermarkets roll out their Christmas condiments and vie for our attention, Lidl edges out in front with its range of sweet treats. Costing just £1.99, the salted caramel, banoffee, and gingerbread spreads are sure to fly off shelves and down our chimneys.
Lidl confirms the Deluxe Spreads are in stores now, and safe to say, the news has gone down a storm on Facebook’s Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK.
One happy shopper wrote, “Had them last year they are lovely”, while another drooled, “I seriously need the banoffee one and maybe the others cus its rude not to lol xx”.
Other comments included, “Would love to try the Banoffee flavour spread😍”, “Ooh ginger and salted caramel. Win , win !”, and “Guess where I’m going tomorrow 🤤🤤🤤”.
Over on HotUK Deals one person rightly asked: “I don’t know what I should do with it? Spread it on bread? Cake? Eat from the jar and fall over? All three?”
Pass the spoon, I’m sold!
Lidl has a whole range of Christmas presents to keep us stuffed this season. As well as a yard of pigs in blanket, there’s a festive ‘Feast in Blanket’, and an all-star chocolate house for when you’re bored of gingerbread houses.
The soft chocolate abode is covered in gold lustre and surrounds a chocolate mousse and salted caramel sauce centre. This is revealed when the accompanying hot chocolate sauce is poured over the house. It almost seems like a shame to ruin it!
Elsewhere, our American counterparts can tuck into Aldi’s Christmas dinner pasta — which sounds like the perfect meal for students.
We’re very jealous of the Americans who get to gorge on ravioli stuffed with slow-roasted turkey with cranberries, stuffing, and cheese.
The limited-edition packs are being sold for $2.99 (£2.33), and take mere minutes to prepare, which is ideal for students who a) are skint and b) cba cooking. I feel you. In fact, this would be great for anyone.
If you’re not a fan of the turkey version, Aldi is also releasing a Bourbon Sweet Potato version, which sounds pretty incredible too. Watch out Waitrose and move over M&S, the smaller supermarkets are coming for your crown!
