DISCOUNTER Aldi is launching a range of new mini sausages in a mix of exciting flavours including sriracha, jalapeno and habenero.
Shoppers will be able to pick up a pack of the new “chilli chubbies sausages” at one of Aldi’s 827 stores from today for £1.99.
Each 540g pack contains 12 sausages, with four of each spicy flavour, which all guarantee to add a kick to any meal.
A regular habanero chilli clocks in somewhere between 100,000 and 350,000 Scoville heat units (SHU) on the Scoville heat scale.
While a jalapeno comes in at between 2,500 and 5,000 SHU.
That compares to zero SHU for a sweet bell pepper and 3,180,000 SHU for the hottest pepper out there – the Pepper X.
Sriracha, meanwhile, is a type of hot sauce made from a paste of chilli, vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt.
Aldi has also this week launched a bargain BBQ meat range, including firecracker chicken wings and a six-pack of habanero sausages (400g), where every item costs £1.49 a pack – 50p cheaper than the mini chubbies.
The discounter is no stranger to the spicier things in life as last year Aldi began selling sausages with the fifth hottest chilli in the world – the ghost chilli.
But Aldi isn’t the only supermarket to sell spicy sausages.
Morrisons sells a (530g) eight-pack of “Hot and Spicy Sausages” for £3 – although that’s £1.01 more expensive than Aldi’s “Chubbies Sausages” with 10g less in a pack.
Waitrose, meanwhile, sells a four-pack of spicy chorizo sausage “whorls” (400g) at £4 – £2 more than the budget store.
And Marks and Spencer offers 12 (600g) chilli cheese sausages for a much pricier £8.
Shoppers mocked Marks and Spencer earlier this year after the retailer launched a heart-shaped banger just in time for Valentine’s Day.
