Aldi Launch Huge Chocolate and Praline Dessert For £5.99
The budget supermarket never fails to come up with the goods and this year is no different - especially seeing as you can get your hands on the massive frozen treat for £5.99 ($7.80).
Although it's not made by the Ferrero Rocher brand themselves, Aldi has done its usual trick of following the recipe as closely as possible.
And it must have paid off, because the choccy treat scooped the golden prize for best sharing dessert at the BBC Good Food Christmas Taste Test.
Aldi is calling the 500g dessert a Chocolate and Praline Dome.
It's the perfect afters for your Christmas dinner - or for just demolishing in one sitting in front of the telly.
Aldi says it defrosts and is ready to eat within an hour. The dessert consists of a truffle dome, stuffed with a hazelnut and milk chocolate mousse.
There's a healthy layer of milk chocolate feuilletine, cocoa sponge cake and a crispy, shell covering.
Speaking to trade mag The Grocer, an Aldi spokesperson said: "No one knows exactly how the situation will have changed by December but one thing we're sure of is that Christmas won't be cancelled.

"What we're going through now and have been through, means people are going to be even more focused on celebrating with their household, sharing food and drink and gifts with their families, and that's where Aldi comes in."
And while we're getting all festive, because let's be honest, Christmas is coming early this year - Aldi has also released a hot chocolate snowman.
Shoppers have said that Aldi's new Hot Chocolate Melting Snowman makes the 'perfect hot chocolate'.
The product has been released as part of Aldi's new Christmas range, and comes in milk or white hot chocolate - each shaped into a friendly little snowman who can be combined with hot milk for an indulgent treat.
What's even more magical is that each one also contains hidden marshmallows and chocolate drops inside, slowly revealed as the chocolate shell melts into the milk.
The melting snowman costs £1.99 for one and can be found in Aldi stores now.
Christmas has started lads, just accept it.
A spokesperson from Ferrero said: "We would like to clarify that the Chocolate and Praline Dome by Aldi is not affiliated to the Ferrero Rocher brand in any way. Therefore, we would like to add that our consumers should not expect any similar experience to that of their beloved Ferrero Rocher."
