Cheapest supermarket for a basket of 22 essentials revealed

ALDI has been revealed as the cheapest supermarket to nab a basket of 22 items from.

The volume of goods purchased at the budget supermarket supposedly costs £24.03 according to the latest data from Which?.

In comparison, a shop for the same amount of branded and unbranded items at Lidl is nearly 40p dearer, as on average it will set you back £24.40.

The same shopping cost a whopping 16% more at Sainsbury’s and 18% more at Tesco.

It also means Aldi is £9 cheaper on average than the dearest supermarket revealed, also a 38% difference in how much you'd have to fork out.

Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi, said: “Being named the UK’s Cheapest Supermarket in September marks our tenth win and we’re dedicated to continuing to make life a little easier for our customers.”

Every month consumer testing giant Which? pits each of the supermarkets against each other to uncover which is the cheapest and best value for money for customers.

Aldi has managed to claim that spot for September once again.

Which? works out the average price for each item at each supermarket across the month, and adds them up to get an average basket price for each store.

It's no surprise that Waitrose was deemed the most expensive retailer to purchase 22 essentials from, as Which?'s results declared you'd have to fork out £33.06 for the small shop.

It means groceries like own-brand grapes cost £1.11 more at the premium store compared to reigning champ, Aldi's, budget prices.

If you were after a chocolate fix too, a pack of Maltesers would cost you £1.51 more at Waitrose than Aldi.
