Aldi is not the only supermarket cutting prices, after a tough year of rising costs for shoppers.
Supermarkets have been under pressure to pass on falling costs as price pressures in the supply chain ease.
Morrisons announced last week it's slashing prices on more than 170 in September.
It's the eighth round of reductions the supermarket has made this year.
At the same time Marks and Spencer revealed it is locking prices on 140 food products until after Christmas.
Asda cut prices on 425 branded and own-label products last month to help customers grapple with the cost of living squeeze.
