These spicy bites are the perfect appetizer to serve up at a dinner party or just pop in the oven for a quick weekend snack. Be sure to check out the cheddar cheese option, too!

While other name brand jalapeño poppers will run you about $5 or more per box (and even pricier if you order them out at a restaurant), you won’t mind serving this appetizer at just $1.79 per box!

“I always pick up a box of these jalapeño poppers any time I’m at ALDI. They’re so easy to toss in the oven for a quick snack! Plus, they taste just like the name-brand ones I’ve tried from other grocery stores, except the price at ALDI is unbeatable!” – Emily

ALDI’s $1.99 bag of oats, honey, and almond granola is priced at just 14¢ per ounce whereas Target carries other name brand granola, like Quaker, priced at 16¢ per ounce. Even Honey Bunches of Oats will run you about 19¢ per ounce!

While most Girl Scout boxes will run around five dollars a box, you can score ALDI’s cookies for as low as 95¢ for an entire box! 😱That is a deal worth stocking up on.

“I have tried all three varieties of ALDI’s ‘Girl Scout knock-off’ cookies, and every single one is seriously identical to a real Girl Scout cookie! You could put them in a brown paper bag, and I honestly would not be able to tell you the difference! (I even did this to my fiance who’s a total label snob, and even he didn’t know!). Of course, I still love to support my niece who’s a Girl Scout, but these cookies are an amazing year-round option to have whenever I want.” – Alana


9. Buttery crackers

There’s nothing like an easy grab-n-go snack when you’re running out the door.

    Aldi’s sells more than chocolate and wine?!?

    • Sara

      Haha! If you didn’t know, now you know Mayme. 😉

  2. Lacey

    Really? No mention of the Veggie Straws?! My kids can’t get enough and they are so much better (and much less greasy) than the name brand.
    We really miss their yougurt raisins. They were a household staple but I haven’t seen them locally in over a year. Bring them back Aldi!

    • Sara

      I’ll have to try their veggie sticks, thanks for the recommendation, Lacey! I have no doubt they would be a favorite in our house!

  3. Casey

    Their guacamole is AMAZING.

  4. Tricia

    Aldi pop tarts are better than the name brand in my opinion. I LOVE them. We have friend get togetherness on Fridays at someone’s house. One week I stopped at Aldi and got
    Chips and Salsa. My friends RAVED about how good they were. Best ever they were dubbed. They asked where I got them , I said Aldi! They were so surprised. I am now the bringer of chips and salsa from Aldi.

    • Sara

      Haha! What a fabulous story Tricia! Their chips and salsa are definitely amazing!!!

  5. Gayla P

    Their Cinnamon Apple chips are the bomb.com

  6. christinecaldwell

    The dark chocolate sea salt chocolate bars are the BEST! I forget what the brand is, but it’s a teal color box. I’ve tried so many brands and like these more than any. Plus they are always cheap, less than $2 each. I agree about the veggie straws too. They are better than other brands. I also grab their pretzel crisps and chips. But wait, don’t forget they have enormous frozen pizzas for around $5! Bigger, better, and cheaper than Digiorno.

    • Sara

      Such great recommendations! Now I’m craving a delicious frozen pizza and chocolate! Haha!

    • Sara

      Are those the Mama Cozzi’s Rising Crust pizzas? I have never had them.

  7. Linda

    I can’t buy the Sea Salt Pita Chips because I eat the whole bag immediately. Yum! Love their almonds, cinnamon French toast sticks, Caesar salad kits and cheap cheese prices. I was super excited to find Icelandic Skyr at my last trip. The blueberry was amazing! Better than name brand with whole, juicy blueberries, not squished. Love Aldi!

  8. Sandy

    Aldis baked chips are great, crunchy and salted just right. Their knock off Pringles are better than the originals. Their thicker cut makes for a more satisfying crunch, with less of that greasy mouth feel, and less in can breakage.

  9. Pat Goff

    I shop there every I see one when I am travelling. I grew up shopping them with my mother and later with my daughter and now my granddaughter. I shop at Lidl and Woolworth in Germany to when I visit my mother. Love it. I remember when I was 10 (almost 50 years ago) I always got free food at the bakery and the butcher when I went shopping with my mother. My daughter did too and now my granddaughter does when we travel over there. I love shopping at Aldi at Christmas so I can pick up the German treats I grew up with. I love Aldi. I just wish there was one in Central Arkansas. Come on Aldi the state capitol needs an Aldi…………

  10. Audra

    My favorite is the Benton brand animal cookies dipped in the aldi hazelnut spread (nutella)

  11. Nana Donna 2 6

    Why does main deal title say there are 160 (approx) comments, but only shows 61 or so comments? Also, comments are very slow today in posting. Is it weather related? It was fine yesterday…I live in frigid Iowa. Anyone else having the problem?

  12. Duduwa

    Got some extra large avocados this week and they were 49C each on sale.

  13. spike

    in Chattanooga the Benton cookies have gone up to $1.19. they are no longer .95. Just FYI. I have been to several around and they have all changed their priced to $1.19.

    • Jamia

      I think ours went up to $1.39 or more. Within the last month almost all the shelf stable items @ <$2 I bought went up 40-50 cents! Poptarts, fruit cups, granola bars, raisin boxes, and more. I think most of them are pretty close to regular price of generic Kroger items now 🙁

  14. Allison

    My son loves Doritos, but I don’t like that they MSG in them, so when I found Clancy’s for .89 w/o MGS. I was happy, and he likes them just as much!

    • MommySpendsLess

      Thanks for the tip Allison! We have Aldi’s within reasonable but not convenient distance so I’ve never been in one. I avoid MSG and aspartame too but my daughter also loves Doritos. (I like the natural Doritos but she doesn’t.) I’ll make a special trip if it will make her happy. Has your son tried the Aldi version of Pringles that everyone is raving about? Specifically the cheese variety (if they have one)

  15. Jenn

    Aldi is a great place to go for low carb/Keto snacks as well! Nuts, cheeses, pork rinds, etc! I think you should compile a low carb/Keto list next!

  16. Sara Derrer

    My faves: Indulgent trail mix, blue chips, rosemary crackers, Moser Roth candy bars, and animal crackers

  17. Momx4

    Organic bananas, their brand Oreo cookies are just as good as namebrand, veggi straws, and my kids love their dinosaur chicken nuggets! I don’t buy milk from any where else because Aldi’s regular milk does NOT contain artificial hormones.

  18. Karen Pond

    I love the take-and-bake pizzas and bread sticks!

  19. Karen

    The knock-off Laughing Cow wedges. I don’t actually like them cold — they’re not as good — but I spread it on crescent rolls, add a slice of ham and some fresh spinach, roll ’em up and YUM. Also their crescent rolls are good.

  20. Jaime

    The red pepper hummus!!!!

  21. Corina

    I am really loving the organic Apple & Cinnamon oatmeal. here in Nashville, it is $2.49/6ct box. Something about the small chunks of apples… I also get their brand of ‘laughing cow’ spreadable cheese as well as their kids multivitamins which are comparable to Lil’ Critters. I buy their ‘Blossom’ brand of feminine pads, they are comparable to Always with out the cost. I buy the Little Salad bar Chicken Ceasar salads in a bowl. They are delicious! I primarily shop at Aldi or WalMart.

  22. MtotheItotheB

    I grabbed the Asian Chopped Salad on a whim the other day, because it was only $2.50. It was just as good as the version I get from Panera though without the chicken.

    • Bryant

      I had the chopped salad today for lunch. They are all excellent and cheap meals.

  23. moon

    their brand Oreo cookies are just as good as namebrand, veggi straws, and my kids love their dinosaur chicken nuggets! I don’t buy milk from any where else because Aldi’s regular milk does NOT contain artificial hormones.

  24. maria

    loved all the cookies and cheeses,thanks

  25. Glenda

    Everything at my Aldi’s has increased in price the last few months.

  26. Sadimama

    Simply Nature Pumpkin Seed Tortilla Chips!! Are they still making them? We got addicted to them a few years ago but have not been able to find them for a while!

  27. PEGGY J CAMPER

    I want Aldi’s to bring back the Lacey’s cookies, the dark chocolate/almond. They are very good and my favorite.
