It's the perfect summer tipple to celebrate strawberry season and recreate the fun of Wimbledon in our back gardens.

The first branch of Aldi opened in Germany in 1961.

Then called Albrecht Discount, and the brainchild of the Albrecht family, the aim was to sell high quality food at a low cost.

The family also wanted to give customers a "quick and easy" shopping experience, with 90 per cent of products being own brand ones.

Shoppers' delight

Earlier this year, the purse-friendly chain unveiled a new Biscuit Spread for toast and bread.

Shoppers insisted it tasted "exactly" like the original Lotus Biscoff Spread for less money.

At the time, jars of the brand name spread was on sale for £2.30 and £2.28 at Sainsbury's and Tesco respectively.

Foodie blooger NewFoodsUK told ED: "It tastes just like original Biscoff."

Another fan raved online: "Tried it! Exactly the same taste as Biscoff! Really good!"

Meanwhile, the masterminds behind Aldi products are constantly congratulated for their ingenious lines too.
