Keep in mind that ALDI prices can vary by location. Please see your local store for the exact price details.

1. Clancy’s chips and Casa Mamita salsa

Name a more iconic duo than chips and salsa. The Casa Mamita and Clancy’s tortilla chips are the perfect snack pair for game days or any other casual gathering.

You can score a large bag of their tortilla chips for just $0.89 and a large jar of salsa for just $1.19! For a total of around $2, that’s a score we can all cheer for – especially when feeding a crowd!

2. Appetitos frozen jalapeño poppers

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

3. Fresh fruit and vegetables

Stock up on unbeatable prices for produce at ALDI! We love strawberries for a healthy grab-and-go snack or a fruity dessert. Either way, at just $1.39 per pound for strawberries, you won’t find a better price!

“I shop here for all my fresh produce. You really can’t beat their prices and fruit makes such a great snack!” – Holly

“I love that the produce at ALDI is about half the price of the fruits and veggies at other local stores. The produce prices alone make ALDI worth it.” – Beverly

Hip Tip: Hate wasting strawberries because you can never finish the whole container before they go bad? Here’s how to keep them fresh for longer!

4. Friendly Farms Greek yogurt

A great snack at any time of day, these yogurts are popular among many readers here at Hip2Save and regular ALDI shoppers. Plus, the prices are better than other name brands and readers said they preferred ALDI’s brand of yogurt over Chobani!

“I love the greek yogurt at ALDI, I normally top it with the Live brand gluten-free apple almond honey granola. It’s very low in carbs compared to most others – 18g per 1/4 cup and 120 cals. Paired with some fresh blueberries, raspberries and slivered almonds (fruit & nuts from ALDI, too!) it makes for the perfect snack!” – Dee

5. Millville granola

Granola is such a versatile snack. You can eat it on top of yogurt (which is also very inexpensive at ALDI), add it to a smoothie bowl, eat it like cereal with your favorite milk, or even sprinkle it on a fruit salad. The options are endless!

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!

6. Canned goods (some available in organic varieties!)

While these aren’t necessarily snack foods, we couldn’t complete this post without mentioning the incredible prices on their canned foods, especially if you like to shop for organic. In fact, you can score many of their organic canned goods for under a buck!

7. Live G Free gluten-free soft-baked cookies

Eating gluten-free? The LiveGFree line at ALDI is full of gluten-free treats! You can score a box of these yummy soft-baked cookies in either double chocolate brownie or Snickerdoodle flavor.

“These cookies are so perfect for my daughter’s lunch since she needs to be dairy-free, gluten-free, and nut-free. It’s very difficult to find a product without all of those ingredients that she will actually eat, and she loves these!” Jami

Along with these inexpensive gluten-free treats, their wide selection of other competitively priced boxed gluten-free treats includes baking mixes for brownies, cakes, pancakes, and cornbread—yum! There’s something for every person who eats gluten-free!

8. Live G Free gluten-free crisps

Looking for more GF snacks? ALDI carries tasty gluten-free rice chips in flavors like sweet chili and black sesame. And they’re only $2.49 for a large bag!

9. Choceur dark chocolate sea salt caramels

Dark chocolate sea salt caramels are a fancy treat to serve up at a party—or hoard them all for yourself! They’re oh so delectable and an absolute must-try when you shop at ALDI. For $2.99 per pack, you get the gourmet chocolate taste without the expensive price tag.

10. Southern Grove dried fruit

At ALDI, you can scoop up affordable dried cranberries, blueberries, and mango. I always load up on the dried fruit for snacks when we take a road trip or head to the park.

11. Benton’s Girl Scout knock-off cookies

Who wouldn’t want to stock up on inexpensive cookies that taste just like a box of Girl Scout cookies?!

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

12. Savoritz buttery crackers

These crackers pair well with a slice of cheese for the perfect mid-day snack. When hosting, place them on an easy meat and cheese board to serve at your party. Priced at just 10¢ per ounce, you’ll save more than half compared to buying Ritz crackers at 20¢ per ounce!

“My kids LOVE their buttery crackers… they’re sooooo yummy! The box never lasts in our house! – Alyssa

13. Millville chewy granola bars

There’s nothing like an easy grab-n-go snack when you’re running out the door. These affordable boxes of Millville chewy dipped granola bars are competitively priced at only 23¢ per bar which is great considering Quaker chewy granola bars at Target are priced at 42¢ per bar! That’s almost twice the cost compared to ALDI! 😱

14. Choceur chocolate-covered pomegranate & blueberry açai bites

If you’re wanting a snack that’s a true indulgence, then these sweets will have your mouth watering in no time. We’re lucky if we can even keep these delicious chocolate bites in stock at our house because they go so fast – plus compared to other store’s brands they’re almost half the cost!

Whether you scoop up the pomegranate or blueberry açai, these chewy treats are packed full of rich, fruity flavors and way too easy to devour all at once.

15. Lantana hummus (or brand name Sabra, when available!)

You can’t go wrong with any of the many flavors of affordable hummus that ALDI has to offer paired with some fresh veggies or pretzels thins. From traditional flavors like white bean and roasted garlic to exotic flavors like Sriracha Carrot, your taste buds will be dancing next snack time.

Plus, their Lantana brand even comes in singles sizes, perfect for on the go or snacking at work.

On the fence about whether you’ll like these snacks or not?

One thing that we absolutely love when shopping at ALDI is that there’s essentially NO risk when buying groceries since they’re backed with their unbeatable Twice as Nice Guarantee! That’s right! You’ll receive a replacement AND your money back. That means you can score all of their best quality foods with confidence!

*Note that due to COVID ALDI has implemented temporary changes to their return policy. As it directly states on their website:

“For the safety of our customers and employees, we are temporarily amending our return policy and we will no longer accept returns. If any of our fresh produce, meat, seafood, or deli items don’t meet our taste and quality guarantee, we will replace the product or refund your money.”

  1. Happy Aunt

    Funny, I dont buy about 75٪ of what’s on this list. I love Aldi though and I really miss those Thin Mint knock offs. They were discontinued in my area 6 months or more ago. They rocked!

    • Ashley

      Yes!!! I really miss those too!!!

  2. Dkp91576

    I love Aldi. I walk in with $20 and leave with a cart full of stuff. Same money at ShopRite is only a handful of items and only if they are on sale with coupons.

  3. Amanda

    I love the coconut knock off Girl Scout cookies, but their “thin mints” are definitely not the same 🤪

    • astrand24


  4. AmandaJ

    I’m a Girl Scout mom, but think that Aldi’s versions are way better! Lol! Especially those peanut butter patties!!

  5. ashley

    Thanks for all the ALDI posts recently! We just moved to a new area and the ALDI is much closer AND has carts that have seats for TWO kids in the front. I’m not taking my twins shopping with me right now anyway, but I’m so excited for the new cart option! That’s a HUGE deal to a twin mama!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Aww, How exciting! You’re so welcome, Ashley! Happy shopping! 💃

  6. Taylor S.

    Has anyone else’s Aldi’s been carrying Cheeze its that are just AWFUL!? They were our favorite and now all of a sudden, they have ZERO cheese flavor.

    • Maria

      I have to agree with you. Their wheat thins are bad too.

      • Lu

        I accidentally bought the Aldi wheat thins in a low fat variety, and my husband actually made a point of coming to me to say how much better they were than the regular Aldi ones. When I buy the name brand ones, he likes the regular and not the low fat, so it seems backwards at Aldi and you might want to give the low fat ones a try.

    • Crystal

      I have to agree my kids were like these are not the same-wonder if they changed their recipe

    • Nana Donna 2 6

      We used to love the cheese fish crackers. But about a year or more ago they were saltier on multiple occasions and weren’t so good anymore. 🙁

    • Nana Donna 2 6

      We stopped buying the mini fish crackers due to the change in taste… mostly more salty.

  7. KarenJ

    I wish their return policy extended to their staples. I recently bought 2 bags of the Clancy’s restaurant style tortilla chips & they smelled & tasted bad when we opened them. All I received in an email from Aldi was thanks for letting us know. I’ve never been disappointed with Aldi products before. I do understand not accepting returns but I suppose I was hoping they would offer to replace the bad product.

    • ksjmoney

      Did you take them back for a refund? I contacted Aldi the other day about a product, their method is by filling out a form. I was impressed the same day I got a call from someone and she was so nice and sending me an Aldi gift card for twice the value of product. I didn’t even have to ask.

      • KarenJ

        In reply to ksjmoney. I filled out a form on their website as requested filling in product information & upc code. It was a few days before I received a return email from them & they just referenced their return policy & thanked me for providing feedback. I might contact them again because we couldn’t eat the chips & had to throw them away.

  8. Melissa

    Our Aldi does curbside pickup through Instacart. The order minimum is $35 and it costs an extra $1.99, but that’s it! I was really nervous to let them pick my fruits and produce, but they’ve done surprisingly good.

    • Rebecca

      Ours does that as well… sometimes charges the $1.99 pickup fee, sometimes doesn’t. Maybe it depends on the time/day of week, I’m not sure. I do Publix pickup thru Instacart as well(no additional fees there), pre-covid their minimum was $10, then $35, now it’s back down to $10 again. I wonder if Aldi’s minimum order will drop as well, didn’t order from them before so I’m not sure what it was like then.

  9. Lora

    I like their trail mixes, too. Most of their items that I have tried have been pretty good. I hate their new style of milk gallons, though. I have a hard time pulling off that plastic on the opening of the jug, and I always spill the milk the first few pours.

    • Holiday37

      Lora, I so agree about the milk cartoons… I spill milk the first few times too!!!

  10. Laurie

    My kids devour the cookies, crackers, and chocolate covered fruit. I tried one of each of the cookies on a cheat day and I should have left myself in the dark. Temptation!

    • Nana Donna 2 6

      Those Benton mini chocolate chip and mini alphabet cookies are addicting. It’s great they come in individual snack packages and are perfect for kids…but I find myself grabbing 2 at a time. 🙄

  11. Rebecca

    Their frozen food section has so many ice cream and popsicle treat options right now it is dangerous!

  12. MaymeV

    I also thought Aldi’s quit selling the Benton Fudge Mint cookies when they disappeared here. Wonder if it’s because of the heat (melting maybe)?

  13. Leane

    We don’t have mint cookies here anymore in ne pa???

  14. Becca

    I soooo wish they would bring back the fudge mint Benton cookies!!!! 😫

  15. MisstionVista

    Pizzelles! Someone suggested using them for s’mores . . . and they are amazing! Great for ice cream sandwiches too.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh yes! LOVE those! Thanks for the ideas!

  16. 5pink1blue

    This is a non-food item but I really liked their seasonally scented dish soap. They no longer carry it.☹️

  17. M. Mosso

    You missing those mini chocolate eclairs🤤🤤🤤…addictively good!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the suggestion!

  18. Mary W

    Aldi has several things in common with the club stores. Aldi carries items for a limited time and you may never see them again or just seasonally. These items have the price cards written in red to let you know. Prices in black are staples you should see every time. Their dairy products, like milk, are produced by local dairy plants so the packaging and brand names will vary depending on your area. Never feel unhappy about a purchase. The manager of your store will bend over backwards to help you. Spread the word that if you arrive to shop and have forgotten your quarter, just ask a cashier and they will give you one. No questions asked.

  19. Stacey

    Agreed on the low fat wheat thins…they’re really good! Also the dog newton knock offs are way better than Nabisco Fig Newtons. And .95-1.29 in my area (the price fluctuates for some reason).

  20. BrendaW

    Along with my addiction to the peanut butter cookies, I have also bought more of the peach Bellini wine than I should admit!! I know it is only “for a limited time”, so I get it while I can!! 🍷

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YUM! Glad you have been enjoying it!

  21. wimedtypr

    Aldi jalapeño artichoke dip with their 99 cent wheat thins the best.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YUM! Thanks for commenting! I’ll have to try it!

  22. Mamamia

    They have a great selection of nuts too!
