8. Anything from liveGfree, ALDI’s gluten-free line.
My mom has had Celiac disease for over 30 years and when this line was introduced, it was a HUGE game changer for her grocery shopping options!
“My son has Celiac disease, and I have found that ALDI has the best selection and best prices around for gluten-free foods.” -Shannon
9. “Specially Selected” brand items.
You’ll know these when you see them since they’re displayed in black boxes, rather than the rest of the brightly colored cardboard. They’re usually featured on end caps or in the ALDI finds section, but you might also find them in random displays scattered throughout the store.
“I try to buy all the Specially Selected items usually found in a black box. Almost always from Europe and taste so good.” -Maria
“Anything under their Specially Selected brand is FABULOUS. Whether it is cheese, flatbread pizza, or dessert.” -Casey
The cheese selection at ALDI can’t be beat. There are tons of options, they’re delicious, and they’re SO reasonably priced!
“I LOVE their CHEESES!!! The cheeses are VERY inexpensive – DEFINITELY compared to other stores – as well as the flavors are good – Happy Farms is the brand.” -Mary
“The Piranio ricotta cheese is some of the best I have ever tasted.” -Beth
11. Kerrygold butter.
If you’ve been following Hip2Save for a while, you know that Collin LOVES the keto diet, and this butter is a staple in her kitchen! Picking it up at ALDI ensures you’ll get the best price for it, too!
“Make a grilled cheese with Kerrygold – it’s life changing. It’s super rich and delicious!” -Lina
Hip Tip: Lina uses Kerrygold to make the mouthwatering garlic caper butter for this easy Steak and Veggies Sheet Pan Dinner!
12. Maple syrup.
Sure, this is from the Specially Selected line that I already mentioned, but this one is worth its own shout out. Real 100% maple syrup can be SO expensive, but not at ALDI 😍 …and it’s delicious!
“A highlight beyond the produce is the 100% maple syrup.” -Sarah
13. Milk and eggs.
Eggs and milk are the most talked about items by far from ALDI! And while their costs vary from store-to-store, one theme remains—their prices appear to beat the competition by far!
Here are even MORE reader favorites:
“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
“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
