New to Aldi’s festive range this year is the very welcome arrival of BallyCastle White Chocolate flavoured cream liqueur.
The popular BallyCastle Irish Cream range has a new addition and everyone is saying it tastes just like a ‘boozy Milkybar’.
The new tipple will set you back £6.99 and is described as ‘a light yet luxurious cream liqueur with the classic flavour of cocoa butter and cream’.
The supermarket chain promises aromas of buttery vanilla and warming notes of white chocolate throughout.
The liqueur is the perfect addition to your festive drinks cabinet and can be used to make festive cocktails or simply enjoyed over ice.
For the same price, you can also grab the Specially Selected Irish Cream in traditional flavour, or the indulgent Caramel and Hazlenut Liqueur.
You can even add any of the liqueurs to your hot chocolate or vanilla latte to make a sweet boozy hot drink in the cold weather.
If you love hot chocolate this time of year, you might want to jump on the Hot Chocolate Charcuterie Board trend that everyone is loving this year.

M&S unveils new Easter range including a giant chocolate Percy Pig
Which one are you going for?
As we hurtle through the seasons and holidays of 2021 in what feels like rapid speed, next up is Easter.
Surprisingly it’s now not that long to Easter 2021, even though last Easter seems like it was just the other day, and supermarkets have been unveiling their themed treats for the holiday.
This includes Marks and Spencer, which has unveiled its Easter 2021 food range featuring – as you’d expect – a lot of chocolate.
The main attraction has to be a giant chocolate Percy Pig, as well as the super cute Walter – a sausage dog made from chocolate.
The M&S Easter range will hit shelves in time for the big day on April 4th, and some items are already out – they can be found on the M&S website and Ocado.
M&S is also doing a mix and match ‘2 for £2.50’ offer on hot cross buns this year when you purchase them in-store.
First up let’s take a look at some of the hot cross buns which will be on offer, including cheesy hot cross buns with Marmite, extremely chocolatey hot cross buns and chilli cheese hot cross buns – made using West Country cheddar and a drop of hot sauce.
As for chocolate, you can grab a Giant White Chocolate Percy Pig with Jazzy Trousers for just £10, as everyone’s favourite pig goes super-sized and puts on a pair of candy sprinkle trousers.
Harry Potter fans can also get a white chocolate, hand-decorated Hedwig owl (£15), and if animals are your thing you can grab Bella Bunny, Kylie Koala and Walter the Sausage Dog chocolates for £5 each.
People have already been going wild for Walter the Sausage Dog, and now you can also get your hands on chocolatey Kylie Koala and Bella Bunny – made with white or milk chocolate and hand-decorated.
You can find your nearest M&S branch here.
Kopparberg launches brand new passionfruit and orange cider
Don’t mind if I do…
Kopparberg has launched a new cider flavour, and it’s guaranteed to get fans of the Pornstar Martini very excited.
The booze company has revealed a brand new passionfruit and orange flavoured cider, which sounds perfect for summer (or winter).
The newest fruity addition to its cider lineup combines the citrus flavour of the humble orange with the exotic notes of passionfruit.
All though right now it feels like we’re going to be trapped in the freezing winter forever, warmer days are on the way, and this new cider sounds ideal for relaxing on a hot day.
Kopparberg has released the new orange and passionfruit cider after the recent success of the same flavour in the company’s gin range.
Its gin flavours also include a classic blend of strawberry and lime, as well as a mixed fruit version.
You’ll be able to grab the new passionfruit and orange flavour exclusively at Sainsbury’s from Valentine’s Day (February 14th, in case you forgot).
