Aldi said: “Offering a tempting twist on a festive favourite, Aldi’s new mince pies have been crafted with rich, all-butter pastry, then filled with spiced orange mincemeat and gin for a beautifully zesty, alcohol-infused eat.”

These are available right now and they have already been spotted by Aldi shoppers.

Posting on the Aldi Shoppers Facebook page, one savvy shopper posted the blood orange mince pies and wrote: “Found these in Aldi this morning…Can’t wait to try.”

The post gained hundreds of likes and comments with Aldi fans delighted over the new flavour. 

One fan wrote: “They look yummy! Will have to try these!”

Another said: “They look amazing, have to try and get them in December though otherwise I won’t stop eating them.”

The retailer has also brought back its sell-out hampers which proved to be extremely popular last year.
