Ahead of the holiday season, German discount grocer Lidl today announced pricing for its Thanksgiving basket. Lidl shoppers will be pleased that, once again, they will be able to assemble a traditional Thanksgiving meal 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 (AFBF) 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% higher than last year.
Lidl’s Thanksgiving basket features a collection of Retail Brand (private brand) products including a frozen turkey 49¢ per pound, which is available through Lidl’s free-to-use loyalty program, myLidl. The basket will be available at all Lidl US stores starting November 2 as long as supplies last. Below is the list of Lidl’s Thanksgiving basket items and quantities.
