Kuchenmeister Luxury Marzipan 500g Stollen £1.50 @ Iceland Best value Stollen

Edited by:"PizzaTheHutt."Found 22nd Oct
Every year I buy my stollen from Lidl at £1.99 for 750g but this year they've increased the price to £2.99! There was even a time Lidl's stollens were 1kg for £1.99

Looking around this appears to be the best value stolen at 500g for £1.50. It's a branded stollen that they sell in other supermarkets but Icleands price can't be beat.

Has this got the marzipan in the middle?

Has this got the marzipan in the middle?


Yes it does

Indeed, I was surprised in Lidl yesterday to see the silly price charged for their standard Stollen......I left it on the shelf as will, no doubt, many others. Hopefully there will be a price reduction before Christmas.......in the meantime thanks for the Iceland deal.

Lidl is getting cheeky with pricing. Is Aldi hiking prices too?. Lidl normally drop prices a day or two before xmas holidays or on boxing day onwards. But not sure when

"... Lidl Stollen, I left it on the shelf this week"

Yes, me too. Last year's £1.99 was ok. But a big price increase this year. £2.49 or £2.99, can't remember. I'll hold out until Lidl drop the price back to £1.99. Or try the Iceland version, so heat from me. I didn't like last year's Aldi Stollen. Too dry. Wouldn't buy that again at any price.

I had mine stollen. ...

Tried this last week, it's ok, far from the best though, I'll be looking for a better one come Christmas...

Thanks OP Lidl`s stollen is quite nice, though I`m not a great fan of Marzipan. Lidl`s Apple stollen is Excellent but they do not seem to have it this year.

Yes, noticed big price increases in Lidl's Xmas stuff.
I don't buy the normal Stollen anyhow as I only ever get the poppy seed one (Mohnstollen) for the poppy paste taste rather than for the marzipan & icing sugar taste of Stollen which is too sweet for me.
But this year the filled poppy seed (and the hazelnut one as well) have increased from £1.99 (for 500g) to £2.49.
The other xmas item I always buy are the fancier Lebkuchen's (the big round ones marked as 'Feine Nürnberger Oblatenlebkuchen), and they've 'only' gone up from £1.49 to £1.59 and they are now mixed (3 with chocolate, 3 with sugar coating).
Prefer to buy less of those though than the cheaper Lebkuchen with less or no nuts. Good Xmas baking should have nuts in it.

To be fair, just looked those up on Lidl.de, could only find the Lebkuchen and it's €1.79, which using today's rate is £1.60.

Lidl and Aldi's prices are reflecting the low value of the Pound against the Euro.

I haven't noticed an increase in price of their other products as of late just a lot of the Christmas bits.




Still theres always alternatives to them. They'll lose out in sales at the end of the day. Ever since Lidl gained popularity I noticed their prices went up. Sometimes they'd change products, make them smaller and not nearly as good value. Lets be honest stores like Lidl and Aldi should be cheap, their stores are a mess and they don't have any customer service.


Lidl's Panettones have gone up to £4.49 for 1kg unless I read it wrong.

You can buy cheaper and just as good from ASDA and Wilko.

Maybe use of the word apple has effected the price?

£1.99 for 750g ??


Lidl's marzipan stollen is £2.99 for 750g went in this morning for milk and checked the price

One thing does occur to me. Over the past year or so, unfortunately Lidl has been gradually deploying dirty tricks in their pricing strategy (as the large supermarkets have been doing for decades), examples being: quoting ridiculous 'RRP' prices as an inducement to buy at a lower price; low stock 'special offer price' goods; seemingly random rapid price fluctuations. I wonder if the £2.99 Stollen cake price will miraculously drop to £1.99 at some point in the next few weeks, as a devious strategy with the intention of spurring customers to buy in bulk, with the mindset of "I'd better get plenty in before the price goes back up to £2.99." It's just a thought.

Bought one last week and it was definitely £1.99. Wouldn’t pay any more for it.

Funny you should say that. Yesterday, I thought I saw the price as £2.49 in Hanwell (west London) Lidl. Which all goes to support my theory that Lidl are playing dirty tricks with their pricing. Presumably now targetting higher prices in areas that Lidl management think can withstand those higher prices. Or am I wrong?

Can be pricey but M&S stollen is much better than any of the other supermarket alternatives IMO.

Lidl are a disgrace, the stollen was much cheaper three years ago. How dare they increase the price, never mind increasing ingredient prices and the low value of the pound.

Without a doubt, it was £2.99 in Bingham on Friday......but if the above reports are true it does seem that Lidl may be playing the 'what the market will stand' games. I must say (I don't live there, I pass it on my travels) Bingham is a affluent area and the Lidl store is new and even has toilets unlike another I pass some 15 miles north, nowhere near as nice. That said though, I'll check the price, if it's £1.99 I'll buy a few.

Just popped into Hanwell (west London) Lidl. No sign of any large marzipan stollen cake (750g? last year £1.99). But they had 'mini butter/marzipan stollen' cakes 200g for £0.99. Also on the shelf were 500g hazelnut stollen cakes £2.49. Also, 500g poppy seed stollen cakes £2.49.

I can't believe Sainsburys and Tesco have a 200g version of this for £2! (2 for £3 in tesco)


Here are Lidl's stollen prices, taken from their magazine

'Pizzathehut', thank you for posting the Lidl stollen prices, as shown in their magazine. It implies the prices are national, with no regional variants. But £2.99, compared to last year's £1.99 . . . umm, that's a 50% increase in price from one Christmas season to the next. I think I'll forgo this year, and hopefully my waistline will be grateful. LOL

These are £2 now get Iceland realised it was just too good of a price compared to other supermarkets.
