This year you don't have to have a load of dosh to have a good Christmas knees up. It turns up, after a poll that Aldi mince pies beat Fortnum & Mason and M&S Bubbly beats Moet (we've never been big Moet fans ourselves).
The annual taste test done by consumer group Which? In their findings they saw that after independent taste tests Marks & Spencer English Sparkling Vintage 2009 by Ridgeview and Ridgeview Bloomsbury 2010 got a score of 79 per cent and 78 per cent respectively, Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut NV and Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut NV only scored 77 per cent each.
And if you want the best mince pies it's Aldi's you want, at just £1.69 they were the cheapest tested and knocked the likes of Fortnum & Masons £12.95 offering out the pond. Coming in at a close second were Lidl's £1.79 Snowy Lodge Luxury Mince Pies and Marks & Spencer's Handcrafted Ultimate All Butter Mince Pies, at £4 for four.
Waitrose won the best champagne category with its £21.99 Blanc de Noirs Brut NV and The Co-operative's £9.99 Prosecco DOC Special Cuvee Brut won the sparkling wine category.
