City Aldi customers in a for a treat as store brings back popular food range

Aldi is bringing back one of its most popular lines – the copycat Mexican range.

Designed to look like the world famous El Paso fajita, nacho and taco products, the Fiesta range retails for around half the price.

Aldi, which has its Canterbury store next to the Wincheap Roundabout, will sell the Fiesta nacho kits for £1.35 while the El Paso ones are around £3 in other supermarkets.

There are similar savings to be had with both Fiesta’s fajita and taco and rice kits.

The German discount supermarket, which was founded in 1913, has 12 stores in Kent with outlets in Whitstable and Herne Bay.

It first introduced the Fiesta range in April, but rapidly sold out.

Julie Ashfield, joint managing director of corporate buying at Aldi UK, said: “We pride ourselves in offering our customers delicious cuisines from around the world.

“Our range of easy to follow, and fantastic value Mexican kits coupled with great value fresh meat are a great way to take the stress out of preparing a delicious Mexican favourite.”

Anyone wanting to get their hands on Fiesta products will have to act fast.

The range is only on sale for a limited period and supplies of it are expected to run out quickly.

Aldi has sold copycat or replica lines before.

Last month it began selling products which mimic the Jo Malone range of perfumes, candles and body lotions, but which retail at a far lower price.

Limited stocks, however, mean that some customers are unable to get hold of their desired products.

There was uproar when some Aldi ran out of battered halloumi fries in May.
