The Asda total shopping basket of 33 items, containing all the necessary food for a Christmas dinner, costs £6.44 less than its closest rival.
The survey found that Asda’s Yuletide basket totalled £91.22, outshining runner-up Morrisons at £97.66 and was £6.71 more affordable than Tesco, which came in third. Asda offered the lowest price on a total of 19 items. Three included festive favourites: pickled onions, smoked salmon, and turkey crown, which at £12 was £3 cheaper than Tesco, £5 cheaper than Morrisons and Waitrose, and £5.50 cheaper than Sainsbury's.
