When will Kevin the Carrot be in Aldi? 2019 ad ushers in the return of popular toy!

Kevin the Carrot Aldi

You must watch the advert again, by order of the Leafy Blinders!

On a scale of 1 - 10, how excited are you for Christmas this year?

It appears preparations are in full swing! Christmas music has begun to play in shops and on the radio, selection boxes and gift ideas adorn the shelves, and indeed, the adverts have finally surfaced. 

There is always a sense of great competition when it comes to the Christmas adverts; which supermarket or big name will be crowned king of the year? We've seen some absolutely phenomenal examples over the years, and we're already off to a great start in 2019. We thought nothing would ever top Sainsbury's with Mog's Christmas Calamity.

However, as of yet, most would probably agree that the beloved chain Aldi have pulled a real cracker this year...

When will Kevin the Carrot be in Aldi 2019?

According to The Sun, Aldi has confirmed that Kevin the Carrot - the recurring mascot - merchandise will be available to buy in stores this year. 

However, when the tabloid asked when Kevin will hit shelves, the retailer announced that they're not ready to announce an official date just yet. We predict that the plushes will arrive not long after the advert begins to invade screens over the course of November. 

We're just happy to know they'll be back!

Kevin the Carrot advert 2019

The viral advert screens first on ITV at 5.30 pm on Thursday, November 7th 2019. 

After it hits screens for the first time, you can expect to see it a great deal over the course of the next two months. The charming ad does a terrific job of parodying the likes of TV sensation Peaky Blinders, as well as offering its own riff on the Hugh-Jackman-starring musical The Greatest Showman

Set to the tune of Robbie Williams' 'Let Me Entertain You', don't be surprised if you find you've learnt all of the seasonal-inspired lyrics by the time the 25th finally rolls around. 

Aldi: Russell Sprout toys?

It looks like Kevin will be joined by some friends - or enemies, rather...

On Kevin the Carrot's Twitter page, a picture was posted of the Leafy Blinders with the caption: "Surely you don’t want a Russell Sprout toy in your homes?"

It's safe to say that many people would. So, perhaps we can expect Russell toys to go on sale with the Kevin ones!

Kevin the carrot: Expect purchase rules!

As with most things popular, some people can get a little greedy...

The Kevin the Carrot toys have proven so popular in the past that sale of the item was been limited to two per customer. With this year's advert already proving to be a huge hit, we predict that they'll continue to enforce this rule. 

Many outraged customers took to Twitter to argue that too many people were buying up the product and selling it for a ridiculous price on sites like eBay. Even with this rule, we hope they've made a bunch of them ready for the incoming hordes of shoppers. 

Be sure to grab yours - we'll keep an eye out for sales updates.
