Aldi has released a foot-long sushi roll for just £2.49

Foodie fans were sent into a total tailspin in June, when M&S revealed it was launching a mega foot-long sausage roll. We know it’s not all about size, quality over quantity and all that, but there’s something quite exciting about an extra-large version of our favourite snacks, don’t you think?

Aldi has now jumped on the massive snack bandwagon by releasing a foot-long sushi roll. The super-long sushi has been launched to celebrate the beginning of the Olympics in Tokyo this year. The games were supposed to take place last year, but were cancelled because of – yep, you guessed it – the pandemic.

Fans of the Japanese delicacy will be pleased to hear Aldi has packed two flavours into the foot-long sushi roll. One half is meaty, while the other is more traditional. The meaty side of the roll is filled with katsu chicken and topped with black sesame seeds and crispy onions. The other side is more suitable for pescatarians, filled with smoked salmon and sprinkled with mixed sesame seeds.

Aldi announced the news on Instagram, writing: ‘What’s better than fresh sushi on a summer’s day? Footlong sushi.’

Aldi’s followers were quick to tag others in the post to share the exciting food update.

‘My dream’s coming true,’ one person wrote, while another said: ‘Footlong sushi… the dream!’

‘Think we need this in our lives,’ a fellow sushi enthusiast commented.

The sushi roll is available to buy in Aldi stores from today (22 July) for £2.49. Considering the size of it and how expensive sushi can be from other outlets, the price is as impressive as the food itself.

Aldi has warned shoppers that because the sushi roll is part of its Specialbuys, once it’s gone, it’s gone. So it’s best to be quick if you want to try it out.
