We bought the news to you very recently that Aldi has changed it’s healthier range of frozen ready meals from SlimFree to SlimWell meals.
The new SlimWell meals have started to land in Aldi stores across the country, gradually replacing the SlimFree meals that were released last year.
As this product is new on the shelves, we’re going to add it to our Shopping Essentials list this week. We’re going to start picking out a couple of the most popular items on the Shopping Essentials list, and having a more in-depth look at them.
What’s The Difference Between SlimFree And SlimWell?
On the face of it, there’s nothing! The Daily Mirror reported in October that Slimming World would be pursuing legal action against Aldi, stating:
‘We believe that the (SlimFree) meals infringe Slimming World’s trademarks and because of that we are entering into legal action against Aldi.
As a result, we’re sorry to let you know that we won’t be adding the meals to the database at this time.’
Now Aldi have responded with a rebrand of the products that includes the new name.
As we stated in our News article regarding this story, Slimming World have announced that they are willing to assess the new Aldi SlimWell meals, with the intention of adding them to the Slimming World Syns Database.
Are There Any New SlimWell Dishes To Try?
There certainly are! The original products made available at the launch of SlimFree in October included Chicken Saag, Three Bean & Vegetable Chilli, Chicken Tikka Masala, Meatballs & Pasta and Spicy Moroccan Vegetable Stew.
Now that SlimWell has been launched, three new dishes are added to the collection. These are Bolognese Ragu, Chicken Chow Mein and Sweet potato curry.
What Do the Aldi SlimWell Meals Taste Like?
We haven’t tried the range of frozen ready meals yet, but some members of our Facebook group have tried them recently with some mixed reviews.
There’s always going to be a mixed bag of opinions on ready meals. Some people rely on their convenience and time-saving qualities, whilst others tend to avoid and prefer cooking their meals from scratch.
How Much Are Aldi SlimWell Meals?
The Aldi SlimWell meals retail at £1.99 each, and can be found in the frozen section of the supermarket.
If you fancy having a go at making your own version of some of the Aldi SlimWell meals, then look no further!
