Aldi has expanded its vegan Valentine’s Day menu and dropped prices to match the dine-in deal offered by Morrisons.
As reported by The Grocer earlier this week, Aldi’s initial deal contained a starter, main, side, dessert and bottle of vegan prosecco for £7.80 per person, while Morrisons offered the same number of courses, vegan prosecco plus an extra side for £15 all in.
Aldi has since dropped the price of two of the menu items: a six-pack of Thai filo pastry roses and a two-pack of vegan chocolate dessert pots were reduced from £1.99 to £1.69. It has also included its Bordeaux Rosé, which is £1 cheaper than its vegan prosecco, to reduce the total cost of the deal.
Aldi’s vegan Valentine’s Day menu for two, comprising Thai Roses, No Chicken Kievs, Vegetable Medley, Chocolate Pots and Bordeaux Rosé, now comes to £7.02 per person.
However, if shoppers were to select the vegan prosecco instead of the rosé and a second side at Aldi, the total cost would amount to £15.35.
Vegan options on the Morrisons menu, which are all from premium range The Best, include a starter of Chorizo Palmiers, a Mushroom & Leek Bake for main with Chunky Chips and Petits Pois, Garden Peas and Edamame Beans on the side, and a Chocolate Pudding Twin Pack.
Morrisons shoppers have a choice of alcoholic vegan drinks as part of the deal, including The Best Prosecco DOC, The Best Pinot Grigio Rose and The Best Chilean Merlot, which all retail at over £7 when purchased individually.
