SHOPPERS are going crazy for the new Kevin the Carrot Christmas merch already spotted in stores.
The new chocolate Kevin-themed range includes hollow chocolate characters and ice creams along with the return of the advent calendar with prices starting from £1.09.
And even though Kevin is a carrot, Aldi’s new festive Kevin the Carrot range is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.
New Hollow Milk Chocolate Festive Kevins are on sale this year for £1.99 per 90g bag.
The treats are enriched with velvety, rich chocolatey goodness and adorned with an intricate design.
The irresistibly indulgent Kevin Mini Chocolates are also back this Christmas.
The £1.49 bite-sized treats make the perfect stocking filler for loved ones.
If you're looking to pace yourself this season, the Kevin the Carrot Advent Calendar is also back this year.
Each 65g calendar contains bespoke chocolate mould of each of Kevin’s family members and is priced at £1.29.
The popular advent calendars flew off the shelves last year, so if you want to get one you better act quickly.

Shoppers on Facebook said they would be rushing to Aldi to get their hands on the advent calendars which are sure to sell out.
One user said: “Got mine last night.”
Another said: “Now I’m gonna be running to Aldi after work.”
“I need this,” a third said.
Another exciting new addition this year – Kevin the Carrot Ice Creams will be on sale for £1.09 per pack of four 60ml lollies.
Infused with an elegant and aromatic vanilla cream, the smooth and velvety presence of vanilla beans welcomes a comforting and familiar nostalgia to a beloved treat.
Kevin the Carrot fans eagerly waited to see the beloved character return in Aldi’s Christmas advert last week.
Initially, fans were worried after the trailer for the advert was released and Kevin was nowhere to be seen.
But fans were able to express a sigh of relief when Aldi released Willy Wonka-inspired Christmas advert and Kevin was finally back on TV screens.
Accompanied by grate grandpa, Kevin embarks on his tour of the festive goodie-filled plant, encountering all sorts of mischievous characters on the way – including dancing plumty-dumptys and a spoilt little sprout.
The ad concludes with the charming closing message "Seasonal goodwill was truly in the air as Christmas is a time that's sweeter when you share".

The supermarket is also expected to unveil new Kevin the Carrot toys as part of its Christmas campaign.
Even though it's not completely confirmed, it says on the supermarket's website: "Aldi will be donating proceeds from the sale of Kevin the carrot products to Teenage Cancer Trust."
Last year shoppers could buy the entire carrot family, Kevin, Katie and the kids in plumper and softer form as Squishees costing £6.99 each.
Aldi’s range of football-themed plushes were on sale featuring some new faces, fans of the ad can bring it home with MmmBap, Marrowdonna, Roy Bean, Ronaldi and Messy, all available in plush form for £3.99 each
