Colchester shoppers will be among the first in the country to try Aldi’s new trial range.

The supermarket chain is launching a new takeaway style chicken range, with shoppers at Colchester stores amongst the first to sample the products.

Featuring five fried chicken dishes for under £3 each, including chicken strips and dip, southern fried drums and thighs in a bucket as well as a two pack spicy chicken thigh burger, the new range is a way for shoppers to enjoy takeaway-style food on a budget.
