Shoppers will be among the first in the country to try a new range of bakery treats.

Aldi shoppers in Maldon will be able to try the new 'Bakery Lite' range as part of a new trial from the supermarket.

The range includes croissants, pastries, apple turnovers and cookies which have been pre-baked and packed for shoppers to enjoy straight away or reheat at home.

The ‘Bakery Lite’ range is being trialled in selected stores across the Midlands, East Anglia and Essex, and if it proves to be popular, it could be rolled out in stores up and down the country.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: "We know how popular our bakery products are with our shoppers, and our new ‘Bakery Lite’ range is perfect for people to enjoy while they’re on the move, or to take home and heat up themselves for an indulgent treat.

"We’re confident they’ll be a big hit with our shoppers in Maldon."
