ALDI shoppers have spoken and it seems the budget supermarket’s own-brand Hunter’s Chicken is its star dish.
The German supermarket, which is a hit with shoppers, now has more than 600 stores across the UK and Ireland after opening its first store here in 1990.
Aldi’s Hunters Chicken has been voted as the supermarket top own-brand item
There are even Facebook appreciation groups for Aldi fans to discuss their latest buys, top deals and recipe ideas.
And one such Facebook group has polled its members on the best and worst own-brand items with The Mirror collating the results.
At the top of the list is Aldi’s Hunter’s Chicken – chicken breasts wrapped with bacon and smothered in bbq sauce and cheddar cheese.
This is followed by Aldi’s Big Daddy Steak and its Dirty Fries.
Aldi’s Applewood Smoked Ham also fared well

But shoppers weren’t so keen on Aldi’s Bake Beans, ranking them the worst own-brand product
