Aldi recently sent me samples of their Killeigh Farm Luxury Irish Low Fat Frozen Yogurt. I’ve always questioned the logic of frozen yoghurt – is it just a lower fat alternative to ice cream? Actually, this was quite delicious. Frozen yoghurt is much lighter than ice cream, and the slight tartness is very refreshing on a summer’s day. It comes in two flavours: natural yoghurt and strawberry, and retails at €2.29 for one litre. It’s just as good as Corrin Hill frozen yoghurt, which normally costs €4.09 in Superquinn but is currently on offer for €3.
I washed it down with a iced glass of Aldi’s apple and blackcurrant squash. Now, I’ll take this back if I’m wrong, but… I’ve no hesitation in saying that Aldi’s squashes are easily the best value on the market. It’s just 99c for two litres. One litre of cheap, rather nasty own brand squash would cost around the same. Unlike a lot of cheap squashes – an unnamed family member buys that awful St. Bernard orange concentrate – Aldi’s are not too sweet, have no added sugar, and are perfect for a cheap and tasty summer drink. Winner.
While I’m on it, Aldi’s has a really good selection of cheeses: the Tipperary blue and the vintage white cheddar recently picked up prizes at the Great Taste Awards 2011.
