Love Dots Pretzels? ALDI has a cheap (and yummy) alternative!

Head into your local ALDI where you can grab Clancy’s Pub Style Pretzels which taste just like the popular (and sometimes spendy) Dots Pretzels!

We spotted a 12oz bag of these pretzels at our local ALDI on sale for only $1.69 (regularly $1.99)! A regular-sized 16oz bag of Dot’s Pretzels is around $5.98 on This means that you can grab three bags of the Pub Style Pretzels for the price of one bag of Dots Pretzels – and trust me, you won’t be disappointed!

I always have these Pub Style Pretzels in my pantry and they are SO delicious! They are dusted with garlic and onion seasoning and are a great snack to keep on hand or take to the beach or pool with you.

Our own Hip2Save Sidekick Cam recently tasted both, and here are her thoughts…

“They are very similar to the dots in taste in my opinion! They are flavorful and they’re Definitely a nice cheaper alternative!”

      Awesome! So good to know they have been around for a bit, Patti! I’m looking forward to grabbing them to try on my next visit. 🥰

    Love these!

    I don’t think these taste like dots at all, however they are still really good. They have gone up in price through and are around $2.50 a bag now. Still cheaper than dots!

      I second all of this!

    • jrosie

      Agree!! My son loves Dots, but doesn’t like these. I think he wants them to taste exactly like Dots. I like both!

    Agree on this one! These are good!

    Dot’s have MSG, so if you are sensitive, beware. I felt bloated for a day afterward. Personally I would make them myself. They recently posted a recipe on this site. I learned my lesson on reading labels!

      Thanks for sharing, Jodi! Our Hip sidekick, Lina, also has a recipe that was recently posted here, if you want to try that one out also! 🤗❤️
