Aldi Hops In With Private Brand Chocolate Commercials

Aldi UK has introduced two playful new Easter television commercials, the first spot highlights the price advantage of private brand chocolate compared to a national brand, and the second features a fairytale world made of candy.

In the first a gorilla playing drums becomes excited when he notices the cost of a Aldi (£0.99) private brand chocolate bunny compared to a Lindt (£2) chocolate bunny.

The second, is the latest edition of Aldi’s popular ‘favourite things’ series, this commercial features an Alice in Wonderland-esque chocolate world, and showcases the brands chocolate offering along with other seasonal picks.

“Customers often talk enthusiastically about their favorite purchases from Aldi, so we wanted this uplifting Easter advert to reflect that our stores are the home of everyone’s favorite things,” said Jonathan Neale, joint managing director of corporate buying at Aldi UK, to TheDrum.com.
