Aldi is launching two new flavors of Irish Cream – and one tastes just like Quality Streets

SUPERMARKET giant Aldi has unveiled two new festive alcoholic drinks in the run up to Christmas.

The grocer has added two new flavors to its Ballycastle Irish Cream range – Chocolate, Toffee & Hazelnut Cream and Espresso Martini Cream.

And the German supermarket chain claimed the taste of chocolate, caramel and hazelnut drinks, just like Quality Street chocolate “The Purple One”.

Both new drinks are 70cl in size and cost £7.49.

That’s not all, as Aldi has also brought back two flavors from the existing Ballycastle range – Chocolate Clementine Cream and White Chocolate Cream.

Again, both are priced at £7.49 and come in 70cl bottles.

In the meantime, if you fancy adding a little twist to your usual Christmas crackers routine, Aldi is selling its 70cl Ballycastle Country Cream Crackers for £7.99.

All five products are available for purchase at Aldi stores nationwide.

It comes after the supermarket chain brought back its range of wooden toys with prices starting at £15.

It is also selling a wine advent calendar for Christmas this year.

How do Irish Cream prices compare?

We’ve checked how much Irish Cream flavor you can get elsewhere to see if Aldi’s latest additions are good value.

It was hard to make a direct comparison, as it seems Aldi is the only supermarket selling these four flavors.

That said, Aldi’s standard 70cl bottle of Ballycastle Irish Cream costs just £4.29, more than £3 less than the other four flavours.

Asda’s standard 70cl Irish Cream flavor is just £4.75 too.

So if you’re not concerned with the more outlandish flavors, you could save some money by going with the normal flavor.

If you are looking to buy Baileys Original Irish Cream flavor, you will have to pay a lot more.

The cheapest supermarket selling a 70cl bottle was Sainsbury’s, where it cost £10.

It’s always worth shopping around to try and find the best deals, including on websites like Trolley.co.uk.

Consumer champion Martin Lewis also urged shoppers to switch to their own brand to save 30% on costs.
