Aldi has launched a range of Christmas food this year, but they’re taking experimental sweet and savoury flavours to a whole new level, with their Christmas Pudding Gammon.
This unique dish combines a traditional Christmas gammon with a mince pie glaze and a fruit-filled stuffing.
Aldi’s website said: “100% British, outdoor-bred RSPCA assured gammon joints are sweet cured and available in a variety of unique festive glazes, coatings and garnishes.
“For festive flavours, Aldi’s NEW Specially Selected Christmas Pudding Gammon (£12.99 per kg) has a fruit-filled stuffing and rich mince pie glaze.
“Topped with edible gold lustre, it is the ultimate savoury and sweet Christmas delight. On sale from 19th December.”
