Here are even MORE reader favorites:

holding cranberry almond chicken salad package at ALDI

“Their Little Salad Bar chicken salad is very good. My fave is the cranberry one and classic, but there’s also a bacon ranch that isn’t too bad. At one time they had a chipotle type one which is also really good. These are really good on their round snack crackers.” -Nana

“Love the Little Salad Bar Red Pepper Hummus ($1.99). Comparable to Sabra and tastes great with Deutsche Kuche Pretzel Crackers ($1.69). Also the Simply Nature Sweet Potato Chips are delicious ($1.89)! I pay more than double this for the Jackson’s brand at Publix and they taste just a good.” -Susan

“I love their Little Salad Bar Guacamole–delicious!” -Amber

“Love Aldi’s! Their barbeque chips are much better than the name brand chips. Also, their salsa is the best and their coffee is amazing.” -Desiree

holding Millville chewy dipped granola bars

“My son loves the Quaker chewy dipps (chocolate covered granola bars), but the name brand gets pricey running $2 – $3/ box if they’re not on sale. ALDI’s brand is just as good and $0.79/box! One of my favorites to pick up.” -Nika

“Spices and baking items are always lower cost at ALDI! I like their jars of African simmer sauces. When you find something you like, buy it because it may not be there the next week!” -AmyK

“The bagged fresh spinach is great. I love their shelf stable porcini mushroom tortellini. For fast food/snacks, the Mama Cozi french bread pizza is as good as Stouffer’s and their Clancy chips and pretzels are better than any of the name brands. The blue corn tortilla chips are also excellent.” -Susan

“My wife is a huge fan of the Winking Owl Moscato. It’s around $2.78 a bottle and it’s her favorite, regardless of price. Their cereals are incredible and 1/3 the price of name brand. And their faux Chips Ahoy are better than the real thing!” -John

    Love the affordable 100% grassfed ground beef. Also the Kerry gold butter can used to make awesome ghee(clarified butter)

    • Jan

      Good to know! How do you do it?

  2. Cheri

    They have really good iced coffee! Has more coffee flavor in it than well known brands. I think they have a mocha and caramel version.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YUM! Thanks for sharing with us! I’ll have to try it!

    • Rose

      Picture please

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for listing your favorites!

  4. Jenny Silverson

    They have high protein bagels there. I love Dave’s killer bagels but they are like 5.99 for 5. Aldi’s have some that are almost as much protien and half the price!

  5. Denise

    Just purchased there low card/high protein mint chocolate chip ice cream…. great!

  6. John

    I love shopping at Aldi, but you really have to watch some things…they often put in WAAAAAAYY more added sugar than even national brands…especially their cereals and snack bars…

  7. Kelli

    Their cookies are way better than girl scout cookies. We will soon be able to shop at aldi and I’m so excited

  8. Happy Aunt

    The thin mints were discontinued!! 😫😫😫 I went to stores in different districts last week looking for them before being told they were discontinued. The pb and samoa cookies are still there. I’m highly disappointed.

    • Lisa

      Happy Aunt, why in the world would Aldi’s do that to us?! Those are (were) amazing. My spouse just cleaned out what we had in the freezer.

    • JOANNE


    • Bunny

      Happy Aunt I checked my store and they still sell the thin mint cookies. Maybe your store happened to be out of stock?

  9. Jeanette

    I love buying organic milk and organic eggs from Aldis.

  10. Shra G.

    I wish I could talk up their completely sprouted bread.. but I can’t. They just changed the ingredients and now I have to shop elsewhere for bread. Now I have to go back to Giant. 😩

    • LisaMarieRose

      What did they change? I always buy that I haven’t looked at ingredients lately.

  11. Cassandane

    Love Aldi!!! IMO the coconut caramel cookies are closest to the GS Samoas, but the mint cookies are definitely different than Thin Mints. Great to have until GS cookie time, which is starting the first week of Jan for my Scouts!! ❤️

    • Kelly

      I agree the caramel delights taste the same but no one can beat the Girl Scout thin mints! They are the best. I hate the Keebler thin mints too, they do not even compare!

  12. Beverly

    The dark chocolate chili variety of the Moser Roth is addictive! I also love their yogurt and super-affordable produce–I just snagged a huge (and very sweet) pineapple there for $1.39.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YUM! Great score, Beverly!

    • Julie

      That’s my favorite chocolate too!

      • Enzarela

        Mine is the dark cranberry chocolate by Moser Roth! And the orange almond.

  13. Jamie

    Sea salt milk chocolate almonds are heaven!

  14. Brooke

    I love cottage cheese and eat it almost daily! I have tried walmart, publix, winndixie brands, name brands and NOTHING compares to Aldi’s Friendly Farms brand!

  15. Jackie Krechel

    My favorite thing from Aldi is their dark chocolate sea salt covered caramels. They are better than any name brand chocolates out there. Also, Aldi brownies are reallllllly good too!

  16. ella

    They recently improved their choceur mini peanut butter cups. I’m not usually too big on PB cups, but my hubby picked some up and the inside is so creamy! They are so much better than Reese’s!

  17. April

    I sure hope Aldis makes a donation to the girl scouts that geez.

  18. Jewlz

    Fig Newtons. They have the best ones. I tried buying the name brand after having Aldi and my family wouldn’t eat them lol. We buy them for every road trip.

  19. amason2011

    Cinnamon toast sticks!! You can find them in the frozen section!! I by these to eat every Sunday with my kids! Soo good $1.99 at my store !

  20. laura-1

    I buy Aldi’s whole milk$1.77 and their split chicken breasts on sale for .90 cents a lb. Their 3 pk yeast packs are the cheapest around!

  21. Lisa Harshman

    Love their peanut butter and Chocolate pizzelle.

  22. theresa

    OMG How did nobody say THE LIVER SAUSAGE
    you think you dont like it BUT it is so good , so fresh

  23. Deb

    My mom loves the center cut pork chops. They are sliced very thin. I enjoyed reading about Aldi this a.m. Later I’ll go and buy some snacks for the Super Bowl. I’ve forgotten how much I like the spreadable cheese wedges. Way cheaper than Laughing Cow brand.
