Here are the top 10 ALDI products as recommended by Hip2Save team members:

holding a boxed cauliflower-crust pizza

Mama Cozzi’s 12-inch Cauliflower Crust Pizza – $7.99

We LOVE the Mama Cozzi’s Cauliflower Crust Pizza. I usually buy just the cheese and add toppings. It’s seriously better than the GF pizzas we have ordered from actual Pizza joints. We ALL eat it even though my daughter and I can eat gluten just fine.Nicole

We eat one of these a week (not even exaggerating, Monday night is always ALDI pizza night). It’s gluten-free, thin crust, and just so so so so so good… and I’ve eaten a lot of GF pizzas in my day and nothing compares to this one. I think we’ve eaten at least 50+ of the ALDI pizzas at this point in my life, and I’m currently chomping on the cold leftovers. 🍕 – Emily

I third the Mama Cozzi’s pizza – love it!Alli

holding a package of fudge stripe cookies

Benton’s Caramel Coconut Fudge Cookies – $1.99

ALDI’s versions of Girl Scout cookies!Angela

I second the Girl Scouts Cookies, they are spot on. The Peanut Butter Fudge cookies are so good I had to stop buying them because I could literally eat the entire box in one sitting.Chelsea

I buy Girl Scout cookies whenever I can, but due to a serious lack of willpower, I can’t seem to make them last all year. Benton’s Caramel Coconut Fudge cookies scratch my itch for Samoas while I’m waiting for the next Girl Scout cookie season to begin, and the price is unbeatable!Jenna

choosing a package of cheese from a store shelf

Emporium Selection Aged Reserve White Cheddar Cheese – $2.75

ALDI’s Emporium-aged white cheddar cheese is delicious and surprisingly affordable for how good it is!Jenna

LOVE their cheeses! They have so many options that are yummy and budget-friendly.Alli

The Emporium Aged White Cheddar is delicious and affordable, and the Mature Irish Cheeses are my husband’s favorite.Nicole

holding a package of bacon

Appleton Farms Premium Sliced Hardwood Smoked Bacon – $3.99

Weird thing, but I love their bacon! 😍 I love that they don’t have 1,000 options and it’s still super good! Whenever I look for bacon at Walmart I’m always incredibly overwhelmed and never know what to get!Alli

taking greek yogurt off shelf at Aldi

Friendly Farms Nonfat Greek Yogurt – 59¢

Their Greek yogurt tastes just like the more expensive brands but at a fraction of the price.Chelsea

We love the yogurt. We buy the Greek yogurt in big tubs and it’s so good.Nicole

boxes of yogurt tubes on shelf at Aldi

Friendly Farms Moo Tubes, 8-count – $1.59

The Moo Tubes kids yogurt has way less sugar (8g vs 23g) than regular Gogurts and they are cheaper. Chelsea

I second the Moo Tubes. I buy these for my kids every week!Jenna

holding a box of frozen sushi

Fusia California Roll 15-Piece – $4.99

My kids and husband all love their frozen sushi! It’s under 5 bucks and just as good as fresh grocery store sushi.Melinda

choosing a box of frozen french toast sticks

Breakfast Best French Toast Sticks – $2.75

Their Cinnamon French Toast Sticks are SO GOOD! I like to pop them in the air fryer for a quick and easy breakfast.Chelsea

holding a bag of pretzels

Clancy’s Pub-Style Seasoned Pretzels – $2.89

Their Pub Pretzels are sooo yummy and great to have when people come over.Alli

bags of freeze dried strawberries on shelf

Simply Nature Freeze Dried Strawberries – $3.49

I always keep these freeze-dried strawberries on hand! There’s no better way to elevate a bowl of Cheerios on a hectic school morning, and it’s so much easier to sprinkle these on top than to clean and cut fresh strawberries. They soften up in the milk, but the crunchy texture is fun too if you prefer to eat them dry!Jenna

wine section of ALDI

Bonus: Wine – from $3.45

If you’re lucky enough to live in a state where you can buy alcohol at ALDI, you have access to some of the best budget wines available! They carry a year-round assortment of reds, whites, and sparkling wines with seasonal selections available throughout the year.

ALDI keeps its prices down by cutting out the middleman and selling a small selection of private-label wines. Prices range from $3.45 to $13.99, with most bottles coming in at under 10 bucks!

Their wine selection is perfection and for only $3 I get a bottle of wine that is great for cooking!Alli

I live in a state where ALDI can’t sell alcohol, so we always stock up on affordable wines when we travel out of state. We were sold when our friends had us do a blind taste test and we liked the Winking Owl brand over much pricier bottles!Jenna

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Absolutely! Thanks a ton for your list of favorites from ALDI, Jill! My town is getting an ALDI in the next few months and I’m super excited to hear what everyone is grabbing! The Truffle Mac and Cheese & Chocolate Croissants sound amazing! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜‹

    • Liz

      Hummm, Aldi’s Chocolate Croissants… I’m going for those.

    • ty

      I second that emotion lol. Their whip cream cans are AWESOME. That Birthday cake flavored whip cream I can’t wait for it to come back.

    The Moo tubes and French toast sticks are a huge hit in this house with my kids. Theyโ€™re regularly in the cart. They also have some great cheeses too, like a cranberry cheddar that everyone always wants to know where we got it from. We always pick up one or two of the Parmesan cheese wedges every time we go. We go through a ton of parm cheese in our house. Itโ€™s easy to shred and so much better than the grated stuff with cellulose powder. We even save the Parmesan ends to throw in homemade sauces for added flavor. They also have great loafs of brioche bread, plain or with chocolate chips, that make for great weekend French toast. And I love their whole milk Greek yogurt. You canโ€™t beat ALDIs prices

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YUM! All of is sounds amazing! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ™Œ Thanks for sharing your favorite ALDI items!

  3. diane

    I thought they discontinued their benton’s mint cookies, they haven’t carried them in my store in MA for a few years now, I wonder why??

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Diane! It seems some locations may still have select varieties. Hoping you might spot them again soon! ๐Ÿคžโค๏ธ

      Right before Covid lockdowns, the Girl Scout dupes were 98 cents. Now theyโ€™re $1.79. Not worth paying almost double the price for the same thing.

      Buy the Dollar Tree dupe.

      Most items in my area are cheaper at Walmart than Aldi. In most instances, Aldi is only lower on a scant number of items in weekly ads.

        Are you serious? Sooo Girl Scouts use to be $1.25 per box now they’re dam near $10 per box. Inflation it happens. You really are complaining about $.83 cents? Woooo
