Happy meals: Aldi stores in Gedling launch their own versions of McDonald’s favourites – and they’re a lot cheaper


Budget supermarket chain Aldi has this week launched a new range inspired by McDonald’s favourites into stores across Gedling borough.

Just as McDonald’s has the announced the anticipated return of its sell-out McSpicy Chicken Burger, Aldi is selling a near identical product for a fraction of the price. Designed to fire up tastebuds, their tantalisingly tasty Roosters Gastro Flamin’ Hot Chicken Burger is a steal at £2.99. They contain two chicken breasts, tenderly spiced with herbs and a layer of crispy golden coating. Set to have McSpicy fans unable to spot the difference, this spicy chicken sensation can be enjoyed from the comforts of the home at a fraction of the price. Available in-store now. 

For even more McLoving, Aldi has also launched a brand new on-the-go wrap range to rival fast food giant McDonald’s – at a whopping 40% cheaper!    

Lovers of the Big Arches can avoid a trip to the drive-thru by stocking up on Aldi’s three new wraps. Meat lovers will adore the BBQ Chicken and Bacon Wrap (£1.95, 190g) which contains deliciously juicy pieces of seasoned chicken goujons, encased in a tangy BBQ sauce – flecked with tasty pepper and onion pieces.
