The tasting was scientifically undertaken by the association’s Andrea Tranter and, in a socially distanced way, her lucky neighbours.

Aldi came out top in the retail category as the Christmas offerings were scored by the participants, narrowly beating the Co-op into second place.

In the independent category Primrose Herd’s traditional offering coming out top, Anna’s Happy Trotters in second place.

“It’s a difficult job, but someone has to do it and we had fun again this year, even if we were stood outside in the December Drizzle!" Andrea said.

“Aldi was a clear retailer winner and the Co-op a worthy runner up. The entries submitted by the independents split opinions but there was a resounding winner in Primrose.”
