From prosecco to mince pies, we reveal what deals are better if you go larger — plus win a £14,000 caravan

Aldi launches its huge methuselah of prosecco today, which contains a whopping 48 glasses of the fizzy stuff.

But while the massive bottle might be a BIG party talking point, it means the price per ­bottle is less impressive.

Sometimes bigger doesn’t mean better value. Check out these festive buys to see what I mean.

  • Hold on a Secco – The new Aldi bottle will set you back £79.99 (in-store and online) and it’s the equivalent of eight 75cl bottles of bubbles, so you’d be shelling out £9.99 per bottle. So actually, you should buy eight bottles of Aldi’s ­Castellore Prosecco Spumante DOC at £5.99, which hold 75cl each. That totals £47.92.
    SAVE: £32.07
  • Ferrer-whoa – You can pick up a Grand Ferrero Rocher from Tesco for £5, but fans of the sweet stuff will be disappointed to find it only has 150g worth of chocolate. Stick to the classic 16-piece box from Morrisons for £4.50, saving you 50p and upping your chocolate content to 200g.
    SAVE: 50p
  • Telling porkies – Asda has a foot-long pig in blanket on sale this festive season. It contains more than 500g of British pork and is wrapped in 100g of British streaky bacon rashers. It will set you back £5. Instead, you can pick up a pack of 681g Asda 12 Pork Sausages for £1.99, and a pack of Asda Farm Stores Bacon Rashers for 99p to make your own.
    SAVE: £2.02
  • Taking the Swiss – Can you believe that a giant 4.5kg Toblerone bar will set you back £73.99? No, us neither. But, grab a 100g bar from Tesco on offer for £1 and get the same amount of chocolate (45 bars) for £45. You know, if you need that many.
    SAVE: £28.99
  • Mince lies – Asda is selling a huge mince pie this year. ,But actually you’d be better off sticking to your normal six-pack of them. The big one is £1.50 but only contains the equivalent of three mince pies. Buy the own-brand (same recipe) six pack for 97p and you’ll save and get more for your money.
    SAVE: 53p
