Let’s start with favorite breakfast foods:
1. Toaster Tarts
As you can see, the prices for these Toaster Tarts compared to the name brand Pop Tarts is unbeatable – and many of you said they taste the same (if not better than) the name brand options!
“My kids love the ALDI pop tarts and never even noticed the switch from name brand!” – Mary
2. French toast sticks
Sick of having cereal as your quick alternative to breakfast? Your kids are going to love these super yummy and really simple frozen french toast sticks that heat up and are ready to eat in just under two minutes!
I know what you’re thinking. EGGS? What is so special about eggs?! At ALDI, you can scoop up an entire dozen eggs carton for just 99 cents! For just under a dollar, this versatile food item is a no-brainer for us.
4. Pork sausage patties
These sausage patties would pair perfectly with ALDI’s 99 cent eggs, some warm french toast sticks, or all on their own – and at just 16 cents per ounce for a large bag, you won’t think twice about spicing up your next weekend breakfast with the family.
“We love ALDI’s pre-cooked sausage patties ($5 for 16), and they go great with the cinnamon French Toast sticks ($1.99 for 20). Makes for easy weekend breakfasts and/or breakfast for dinners!” – Rachel
These ALDI brand cereals are just like the name brand options you’ll find at any grocery store, except they’re HALF the cost! From fruit ring knockoffs to cinnamon squares, I’ll take one of each, please!
6. Danish pastries
I’m pretty sure I could eat this entire box in one sitting if I allowed myself. 😏 These danish pastries are a delicious treat straight out of the box, or heat them up for 30 seconds to enjoy an extra special snack on the go.
7. Fresh produce
Let’s not forget ALDI’s fresh produce! At ALDI, I scoop up amazing deals on produce that just can’t be scored anywhere else. And while fruit is perfectly delicious all on its own, you can really have some fun, like trying out our blueberry lemon chia seed overnight oats for the perfect breakfast meal to start your day.
“I shop here for all my fresh produce. You really can’t beat their prices, and fruit makes such a great snack!” – Holly
“I bought some extra large avocados this week, and they were only 49 cents each!” – Macy
Check out these yummy lunch and dinner ideas:
8. Corn dogs
These corndogs would be great on the go, packed for lunch, or saved for a weekend snack. And for about just 35 cents each, they won’t break the bank when your kids are eating them all in one sitting!
9. Frozen pizzas
You can’t beat these frozen pizzas from ALDI that are less than $5 each! Your Friday night pizza dinners just got a whole lot more affordable and delicious!
10. Quinoa burgers
These frozen veggie burgers are a great alternative to regular burgers, and with each patty running you well under a dollar each, you’ll save a ton of money by not going out to Fuddruckers for lunch or dinner.
11. Naan bread
Naan bread is an absolute favorite in our home! Check out the delicious recipe that our reader Wende shared with us below. It has us so excited to stock up on some new goodies for our next ALDI trip!
“One of our favorite recipes is Pesto Havarti and tomato grilled naan and everything comes from ALDI! For the recipe:
- Spray one side of the naan with cooking spray and place in pan sprayed side down.
- Add the Havarti cheese, spread with pesto, add sliced tomatoes then more Havarti.
- Place another naan on top and spray with cooking spray.
- Continue to grill the sandwich as you would a traditional grilled cheese.
Tip: The larger naans are a better deal, but the smaller ones are MUCH easier to flip, trust me!” – Original recipe credit: MashupMom
“The 4 pack of garlic Naan bread also makes for great personal pizza dough when a quick and easy meal is needed!” – Andrea
These appetizers are great for your next gathering:
12. Chips and fresh salsa
ALDI’s fresh cut salsa found in the refrigerated section is a popular choice, and it pairs perfectly with their organic blue corn tortilla chips!
13. Goat cheese and thin wheat crackers
This goat cheese and box of wheat crackers are the perfect combo. Goat cheese not your thing? That’s fine as there are tons of different cheeses to choose from at ALDI to complement any cheese board.
“I love their brand of Wheat Thins! They taste just as good as the name brand. I always pick up some plus a log of Herb and Garlic goat cheese for my daily work snack. So good! The cheese is soft enough to just scoop up with the wheat thins.” – Stephanie
14. Hummus + pita chips and veggies
A classic appetizer or a quick snack that anyone is sure to love, ALDI’s delicious hummus pairs great with some fresh cut veggies and a bag of crunchy pita chips. It’s the perfect balance of flavors and a healthy alternative to snack time.
“My husband loves the pita chips. I wouldn’t know how good they are because the are gone immediately after I buy them. LOL!” – Jeanne
15. 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
16. Tortilla chips and dip
If you’re looking for another appetizer to enjoy with your tortilla chips, scoop up a container of ALDI’s artichoke dip! Heated up or served cold, this is one snack everyone will love at your next get together.
17. Mixed nuts
Nuts are a great snack to leave out on your counter for any time of day or during a gathering. And at ALDI, you can score various bags/containers of nuts for under 5 dollars!
Here are some of our favorite chips you can scoop up at ALDI:
These Stackers are so similar to the Pringles name brand chips. Their only major difference is that these are just 99 cents for an entire pack!
19. White cheddar puffs
Irresistible and organic, these white cheddar cheese puffs are so delicious and an excellent snack to pack in your kid’s lunches – or really any time of day!
20. BBQ Chips
I was already sold on these chips when I discovered they’re just over a dollar per bag! If you’re looking to switch up your chip flavors at home, these Mesquite Barbeque chips are so delicious! They’re not greasy like most other name brand chips – and your savings on this brand will be huge!
21. Veggie chips and straws
Whether you’re a veggie chip or a veggie straw lover, ALDI has both options available at a great price! For under two dollars per bag, you can score these ideal snacks for kids, and you won’t feel bad letting them indulge! They also don’t have the surplus of grease like other types of bagged veggie snacks.
22. Sweet chili chips
The texture and flavor of these chips are spot on! They’re also gluten-free and come at a great price compared to other name brand gluten-free snacks.
“We do not need to be on a GF diet, but we LOVE the GF sweet chili chips! It always hits the spot when the craving is for something sweet/savory. It is not spicy, despite it being a chili flavor, just a very, very slight kick. The texture tastes like tortilla chips, and it would be hard to tell it’s GF. Definitely one of our favorites!” – Cecilia
23. Gluten-free pretzels
If you’re gluten-free and need new snacks, these mini pretzels are another great alternative for easy snack times or school lunches.
Hip Tip: Speaking of lunches. Here are some clever lunchbox hacks that’ll make your life so much easier! Plus, your kids will love them!
Some of our biggest faves from ALDI satisfy our sweet tooth:
24. Chocolate cupcakes
When a reader recommended these treats, I knew I needed to give them a try. They’re really just like the name brand Hostess snacks except better and cheaper, too!
25. Chocolate chip dunker cookies
Perfect with coffee or tea or of course just by themselves, these chocolate chip dunker cookies are an ALDI original and not something you can get anywhere else.
26. Dark chocolate sea salt caramels
Dark chocolate sea salt caramels are a fancy treat to serve up at a party — or to keep 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.
27. Benton’s 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’s a deal worth stocking up on when the Girl Scouts aren’t out selling their delicious stash.
“The cookies are really a perfect replica, love the peanut butter ones. I buy 10 packages or so and make my own tray for parties I am invited to. Great price.” – Daniela
28. Moser Roth chocolate bars
These large chocolate bars are only found at ALDI and are absolutely delicious! From Milk Toffee Crunch to Dark Sea Salt, there is something to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth.
“The dark chocolate sea salt chocolate bars are the BEST! I’ve tried so many brands and like these more than anything else! Plus they are always cheap – less than $2 each!” – Christine
29. 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!
“I eat GF, and the cupcakes mixes are great! When I mixed up the vanilla one it didn’t seem like a normal “batter”, so I figured it would be gross. They turned out delicious and don’t taste GF! They were a light fluffy cake, not dense like a lot of GF mixes. The chocolate one makes excellent brownies per the box directions. FYI, if you are newer to GF baking like me, always slightly under bake for perfect results.” – Jennifer
30. Sundae Shoppe ice cream
Compared to Ben and Jerry’s or Halo Top’s pricey pints of ice cream, the Sundae Shoppe brand at ALDI is almost half the cost and just as delicious! I especially love the creamy mint chip flavor!
“I like the Sundae Shoppe high-protein ice cream which comes in vanilla, chocolate, and mint chip (my favorite!). Plus, they’re much tastier than the Halo Top ice creams.” – Debbie
31. Chocolate protein bars
Looking for a slightly healthier option to satisfy your love for chocolate? These Fit & Active chocolate-covered protein bars by Millville are just the snack for you!
32. Animal crackers
This timeless snack box of cookies is a great treat to enjoy. I’m a sucker for cool packaging, and I just can’t resist how cute these animal cracker boxes are. Plus, they’re just $1.59 for a 13 ounces box, compared to Barnum’s 8-ounce bag which is over 2 dollars!
“We just bought the animal crackers for the first time on our last trip, and my husband was the one that kept talking about how good they were. LOL!” – LaDonna
33. Caramel rice cakes
Gluten-free and packed with natural caramel flavor, these rice cakes are a scrumptious snack to enjoy any time of day!
Here are some favorite drinks to wash down those delicious foods:
34. Citrus Twist soda
As close to a Sprite knock off as you’re going to get, these packs of Citrus Twist are sure to quench any soda lover’s thirst. Plus, they’re about half the cost of the name brand packs.
35. La Croix sparkling water
A popular drink I personally enjoy (as opposed to drinking soda), these 12-packs of La Croix are just $3.99, which I haven’t found cheaper anywhere else!
ALDI even has these thirst-quenching adult beverages:
36. Winking Owl wine
Are you a Moscato lover? One of our readers recommended ALDI’s Winking Owl Moscato, which is under 3 dollars a bottle! Consider me sold!
37. Broken Cloud red wine
ALDI really outdid themselves with their selection of wines! I really love this Pinot Noir by Broken Clouds. And, just like all their other wines, you won’t find something over 10 dollars!
38. Wicked Grove hard cider
Love a refreshing hard cider? This apple crisp flavor by Wicked Grove is wickedly good 😉, and at just 7 dollars for a six pack, we think this reader recommendation is a must try!
“We love their hard cider, and at less than $7 for a six pack, it’s a price we cannot beat anywhere else. We even like the ALDI one best.” – Lana
