Large Whole Frozen Turkey £15 Aldi (Upto 7.2KG) / Medium Frozen Turkey £11 (upto 5.4KG) cheapest currently available in the supermarkets. Excellent quality, and sourced from British farms.

In six years tried and tested five different turkeys from the main supermarkets - Tesco (bronzed, normal), Morrisons, Aldi, Sainsbury's, and Asda. Found the Aldi Turkey excellent quality overall and for £11 cannot be beaten.

Heat so that's the first 15 of the qualifying 75 spent. See its easy to spend 75 in aldi to qualify for 15 off :-)

Are these German or Polish Turkeys??

Turkish of course!

Morrisons are turkey retailer of the year. Stock and quality varies year to year so going on the last six years is pointless.
Aldi meat and fish is the worst of out of the supermarkets, works out relatively poor value in terms of quality theguardian.com/bus…cts

Not sure if you were making a clever joke that has gone over my head, but the packaging says 100% British

I just presumed they were dead turkeys

What do you have against aldi? Linking in the horse meat scandal as "evidence" of poor quality is ridiculous. This is quite clearly a whole turkey, not some processed rubbish. The 2014 award was for last years sales ie 2013 Christmas. As you say stock and quality vary each year so going on previous years are pointless.

How about Lidls, haven't checked their prices but their meat is good quality.

cheaper in farmfoods and they are Bernard matthews ready basted

Already got mine :P oh yes and everyone's presents and all wrapped and ready

We tried one of the Aldi basted turkeys last year, and it was definitely the tastiest turkey we have ever eaten.

Rats - wish I had bought this instead of the Sainsbury pterodactyl lurking in my freezer

Looks like its shaping up to be an Aldi Xmas here. thanks.

less the £ per lb has to be an ok deal
prefer the un-basted type myself though as i like to brine mine myself with my own mix for a day or two and with these ready basted birds it is just not possible

Had an Aldi turkey last year which must have been down on weight, as it came with an extra leg! Very nice and great value, recommended

lidl?

Anyone know whos best for Goose?

Lots of people are on a tight budget, this is a good price which is what the site is all about.

my wifes just been and purchased one for this years dinner. We had one last year and it was the first time i have cooked a full turkey as we normally just have the crown or breast. To say it was the best flavoured turkey ever was an understatement, every said it was succulent and really flavoursome.

If i hadnt already got mine it for christmas i would be putting people off until i had just to make sure that i got one

Its not worth paying over the odds when these are that tasty

It'd be a be a different colour for a start as well as skin and anatomical differences. Plus how could they make it one whole bird? I guess they could use the feet for glue to make it look like one piece.

Think you've answered your own questions there. You're starting to doubt it yourself aren't you?

I bought an Aldi Crown last year for the first time and every person at the Table commented on how tasty it was compared to previous years (which were local Butcher bought).

Its all about how you cook it.... Turkey is, arguably, the most dull and boring meat you can have at Christmas...but I have a family that 'expects' turkey on the table @ Christmas

I slow cook the crown in White Wine, with fresh rosemary, fresh thyme, onion, butter & celery leaves. Lovely....

thanks, think I'll grab one of these!

It's a very good price, especially for those on a budget, so heat added. However, there's a few things you should know before you rush out and buy one. A 7.2kg turkey would cost my family's butcher shop over £30 to buy in from the farm we get them from. Aldi are selling a "British sourced" turkey of that size for £15. First, Aldi aren't the ones sacrificing their profit, so it means the farmer is getting a terrible, terrible price for them. Second, "up to" is not a great way to price anything, usually it'd be done by weight. So if they're all at the bottom end of the size range then it's not as good. Look for the bigger ones. And third, "British sourced" is a fairly loose term. Based on the price, these will more than likely be battery farmed, i.e. not great conditions.

there was no way i was going anywhere else this year for my turkey. I bought a large one last year and it fed 8 adults and 3 kids (we did have two other meats aswell i might add) with enough left over to make a turkey and leek pie and also a turkey curry.

cheap cheap X)

it could be that Aldi is doing it as a lost leader. Maybe making no profit on this one item in the hope that after they have tasted the quality of their meat that people will start shopping there.

Pleased they are from UK, supporting UK Farmers. Morrisons have been selling a lot of Polish Frozen Chicken, they process it differently, its quite salty.

Aldi may just be doing it as a promotion to get people in the store knowing that they will spend more money on other items which will make any loss on selling the turkey into a profit! Clever marketing ploy really.
