They shared first place with another premium ice cream - the Connoisseur Classic Vanilla - which also scored 81 percent, beating a range of other brands including the mega pricey Maggie Beer Rich Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
Maggie Beer’s cult ice cream scored 71 per cent - but costs more than four times the price of the ALDI and Woolies scoop.
In their judging comments, the Choice reviewers said of the ALDI ice cream: 'A pleasant, creamy mouthfeel and lingering aftertaste. Slightly icy texture. Excellent dairy/vanilla flavour balance.'
Speaking of the Woolies version, they said: 'Distinctive vanilla flavour. Smooth and creamy texture. Good dairy notes.'
Choice judged the ice creams by doing blind tasting in randomised order, which was different for each judge. Only premium ice creams - sold in tubs that are one litre or less - that are available across Australia in at least one major supermarket were eligible.
The ice creams were judged predominantly on taste - including flavour, aroma and texture - as well as nutrition and presentation.
