Aldi is a hugely popular retailer among budget-conscious shoppers in Europe, and its North American operations are expanding all the time.
If you’ve never set foot inside a store but you’re interested in trying the best of what Aldi has to offer, the following are just a few well-loved products which it stocks that need to be added to your grocery list.
Is there anything more refreshing than a cool mimosa on a hot day? Customers of Aldi certainly don’t think so, as its own-brand infusion of white wine and orange juice is a big seller at its thousands of outlets worldwide.
So with new Aldi openings in full swing across the US, it’s worth popping in and picking up a bottle or two of this so that your next celebration with friends or date night with that special someone has a bit more of a fruity zing to it.
Kirkwood Breaded Chicken Breast Filets
We’ve done our due diligence and included the real name of this product so you know what to look out for when you’re in-store. However, if you’re talking to someone who’s in the loop on Aldi’s best loved items, they’ll probably just refer to it as ‘red bag chicken’.
This nickname relates to the design of the bag, which you’ll find in the freezer aisle. Red coloring, red lettering, and even a red plate on which the breaded filets are pictured, have managed to make this a meme-friendly option for affordable food fans everywhere, with quick airfryer recipes helping it gain traction.
Part of the trick of buying the most appealing items from Aldi is knowing that a lot of the options available are adjacent to better-known alternatives, and so serve the purpose of being a cheap and cheerful stand in for an existing household name.
In the case of Benton’s range of baked goods, that category they’re aping is the venerable Girl Scout cookie. There are plenty of varieties to pick between, from peanut butter filled favorites to minty masterpieces, and the online hype surrounding them shows just how many people have been won over.
Choceur Peanut Butter Cups
Speaking of products that are infused with peanut butter, what better way to indulge in your preferred sweet treat than with a close copy of the kind of thing you’d normally expect to find branded with Reese’s unmistakable orange packaging?
The name Choceur might not mean much outside of Aldi’s well-stocked stores, but to people who’ve embraced its no-compromises approach to value, these Peanut Butter Cups are well worth the investment. Just be sure to moderate your intake of junky snacks like this so that you don’t risk your health!
Zero Net Carbs Wheat Bread
Not all of Aldi’s most talked-about products are occasional indulgences; the Zero Net Carbs wheat bread ticks all the boxes in terms of being good for people looking to manage their diet the keto way, while still being tasty and wholesome.
Even if you’re not on the warpath against carbs, you’ll find a lot to like about this inexpensive item, and it will become a great staple for you and the whole family, regardless of your aims.
Happy Farms String Cheese
String cheese is another big hit with all sorts of households, creating a great snack to keep little ones going whether at home or out and about.
You don’t have to push your budget to the max by choosing mainstream brands, because at Aldi there’s the Happy Farms range which more than deserves its cult status.
If there’s an Aldi near you, or one opening soon, now that you know what products are available which come recommended by others, you might be inclined to drop in and join the cult!
