Shoppers rush to Aldi to buy Quality Street – and it’s the cheapest place this week

WITH just two months to go until Christmas, shoppers are getting stocked up on all the essentials – which means chocolate.

For most Brits this includes chomping down on a tin of Quality Street.

Aldi is the cheapest place selling the Quality Street chocs this week

If you’re on the hunt for a box this festive season then you’ll be on the look out for the best bargain.

Deal-finding site HotUKDeals has found a large saving at Aldi, while also flagging a similar price at Sainsbury’s, but this is no longer available.

The discount supermarket is selling a 600g tub for just £3.49 at the moment, reduced from £3.99.

The offer is available both in stores and online on click and collect.

But you’ll have to be quick because the offer is only on until October 31 as part of its Halloween sales.

The deal has gained over 100,000 likes on the website despite only being posted last night.

People were quick to comment on the post and advise others to stock up even if they’re not a fan.

One said: “Terrible chocolates. Does anyone ever buy these outside of Christmas deals?

“I can’t see them getting much cheaper this year, so stock up for gifts for peeps you don’t really like.”

Another wrote: “Aldi is closer thanks I’ll take a look on Wednesday.”

Aldi appears to be the cheapest place to get the chocolates this week.

Using the comparison site, we compared the prices across all major supermarkets.

We found that both Asda and Tesco are currently selling the same size tubs for £4.

You can pick up the chocolates for slightly more at Morrisons for £4.99.

Meanwhile, Iceland is selling the same 600g tubs for £5 each, they do also have a deal of two for £8 – but it is still £1.02 more than picking up two from Aldi.

As always, remember to check elsewhere in case we missed a cheaper price.

Prices may vary day to day as well depending on what deals are on, and remember to look at delivery costs too if you’re ordering online. is a handy tool – it compares the prices of 130,000 products across 14 major supermarkets.

The Latest Deals app also lets you search items and lets you compare prices at several supermarkets to see where it’s cheaper.

Nestle announced earlier this month, the Quality Street will change its iconic brightly-coloured wrappers for the first time in over 86 years.

Earlier this month Quality Street fans were left furious after realising the tubs have shrunk once again.

The tubs now contain 600g worth of sweets, compared to 650g last year.

At the same time, the prices have stayed the same.

The change was first reported in August, but many shoppers are only starting to realise it as we get closer to Christmas.

When it was first reported, a Nestle spokesperson said it introduces a new Quality Street range every year “with formats, sizes, weights and rsps based on a range of factors”.

Meanwhile, as Christmas approaches we’ve been checking out the cheapest places to buy various products.
