Lidl boasts sub-$30 Thanksgiving
Ahead of the holiday season, Lidl announced pricing for its Thanksgiving basket. Lidl shoppers will once again be able to assemble a traditional Thanksgiving meal, including fresh produce, at Lidl that feeds up to 10 people for less than $30.
Lidl’s Thanksgiving basket is modeled after items selected by the American Farm Bureau Federation for its annual Thanksgiving Dinner Cost Survey. In 2021, the Farm Bureau’s survey of grocery stores nationally found the average cost of its basket to be more than $53. Recent data released by the USDA also shows that the average price for frozen turkey is $1.99 per pound, which is 73 percent higher than last year.
Lidl’s Thanksgiving basket includes a frozen turkey for $0.49 cents per pound, which is available through Lidl’s free-to-use loyalty program, myLidl. The basket will be available at all Lidl U.S. stores starting Nov. 2 as long as supplies last. Below is the list of Lidl’s Thanksgiving basket items and quantities.
- Frozen Turkey (13 pounds)
- Sweet Peas, 16 ounces.
- Fresh Cranberries, 12 ounces
- Sweet Potatoes, three pounds
- Baby Carrots, 16 ounces
- Celery, one stalk, whole
- Pumpkin Pie Mix
- Two Pie Crusts
- Milk, one gallon, whole
- Heavy Whipping Cream, one pint
- Turkey Stuffing Mix x 3 (18 ounces)
- Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, 12 count
"Even as grocery prices rise nationally, shoppers can rely on Lidl for the best deal to feed their family this holiday season," said Stefan Schwarz, Lidl U.S. chief product officer. "We are proud to offer shoppers at Lidl a delicious Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings for less than $30. We hope our low prices give families some financial relief as they come together this holiday season.”
Lidl, which is active in 32 countries, first established its U.S. headquarters in Arlington County, VA, in June 2015, and today sells its products in more than 170 stores across nine East Coast states.
