Five of the best from Aldi’s new Irish range

Our editor picks five of her favourite products.


You’ll find products from 45 Irish food and drink suppliers in Aldi stores tomorrow, as part of its ‘Grow with Aldi’ supplier development programme.

As well as launching its well-known Grow with Aldi campaign, the supermarket was also named best Irish supermarket at the International Taste Institute Awards this week. Amongst the 11 awards Aldi received, it's rib-eye steaks took home the coveted Crystal Award. 

The new products from the Grow with Aldi programme are set to land in-store tomorrow. Here are five of them that are well worth trying.

Magic Mayan chocolate

Made in Co Clare, Magic Mayan chocolate contains 55 per cent cocoa solids and will be available in three flavours: salted caramel, orange, and fresh mint. We liked all of them, but at a push would say the orange was the tastiest. Each bar costs €3.99, and are both gluten-free and vegan.

Mrs Doyle’s Tea

Also from Clare – though you probably guessed that from the name – is this lovely loose-leaf tea. If you’re working from home you have a bit more time to brew your daily cuppa, so give this a go. A box costs €4.49.

Mella’s Fudge

Hopelessly addictive, this delicious fudge is made in Clonakilty in west Cork. Two varieties will be on sale in Aldi – one is salted caramel, and the other is a fudge selection of assorted flavours. Each bag costs €4.49.

Bo Rua Cheddar

This cheese made by the Duneen family in east Cork was a gold medal winner at last year’s Blas na hEireann awards, and deservedly so. Put in a toastie, or just enjoy a nibble with a glass of wine. A 150g pack is €2.99.

Biltong Chief biltong

On a never-ending quest for healthy snacks? You’ll like this biltong made in Offaly. Packs of chilli and original flavours are available for €2.85 each
